Excerpt from The Lost Symbol

If you didn’t see my post yesterday celebrating The International Day of the Stim, pop on over for a look! I had a great post by Maxfield Sparrow.

His Hands were Quiet comes out this weekend, so I’ll have a round-up of new releases for you. If you want His Hands were Quiet in your Kindle App as soon as it’s released, you can preorder it now.

Hired to investigate the death of an autistic boy in a treatment facility, PI Zachary Goldman is concerned about the therapies he sees there. While he is assured that the children there are not actually being hurt, his investigation leads to the discovery of even deeper institutional abuses. 

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I’m reading one of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon books at the moment. The Lost Symbol is all that you would expect from Dan Brown; brain teasers, plot twists, and edge of the seat suspense. I have run into one plot point that doesn’t quite make sense, but I will overlook it for the sake of the rest of the story…

It was a proven fact that human intuition was a more accurate detector of danger than all the electronic gear in the world—the gift of fear, as one of their security reference books termed it. 

Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol

Famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon answers an unexpected summons to appear at the U.S. Capitol Building. His plans are interrupted when a disturbing object—artfully encoded with five symbols—is discovered in the building. Langdon recognizes in the find an ancient invitation into a lost world of esoteric, potentially dangerous wisdom.

When his mentor Peter Solomon—a long-standing Mason and beloved philanthropist—is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that the only way to save Solomon is to accept the mystical invitation and plunge headlong into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and one inconceivable truth … all under the watchful eye of Dan Brown’s most terrifying villain to date. Set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol is an intelligent, lightning-paced story with surprises at every turn—one of Brown’s most riveting novels.

 

Comments

  1. I liked the other books with that character, but I haven’t read t his one yet. It’s on my TBR already. Not sure when I’ll get to it though. My Teaser is from a paranormal cozy this week.

  2. The Langdon books can be fun to read.

Tell me what you think!
