Brief plot of THE LOST SYMBOL by Dan Brown

As our story open, Robert Langdon, the world's leading authority on Symbology, has been summoned to give a lecture in Natoinal Statuary Hall in the United States Capitol by his mentor, Peter Soloman, a 33rd degree Mason, who is head of the Smithsonian Museums complex.

What greets Langdon is an empty lecture hall and not a waiting audience. On his way out of the Capitol via the Rotunda he dicovers the severed hand of his mentor tattoed with the symbols from the "Hand of the Mysteries" illustration with the fingers pointing up to the Capitol Dome and the painting "The Apotheosis of Washington."

Langdon subsequently learns that  an international man of mystery named Mal'akh holds Peter hostage and demands that Langdon decipher the meaning of a lost symbol that can be used to decode the meaning of the Ancient Lost Mysteries located somewhere in Washington, DC.

To add to the mix of intrigue and drama, top CIA Director Inoue Sato makes an appearance with her crackerjack team and informs Langdon that Mal'akh also has in his possession  a secret videotape of Washington movers and shakers participating in secret Masonic rites and is planning on releasing them to the media unless his demands are met

Mal'akh sets a timetable of only twelve hours in which Langdon must find the Lost Symbol and present him with the decoded information. If not, Peter Soloman will die and a government brought down.

Langdon joins forces with Peter's sister, a Noetic scientist named Dr. Katherine Soloman, as the two battle the evil Mal'akh in a grim life and death battle played out against the backdrop of various govenment and Masonic sites  in Washington, DC and the surrounding areas.

Some of the sites where Langdon and Solomon find clues to the puzzle that will lead to the secet of the Ancient Source of Power demanded by Mal'akh include the following:

US Govenment Sites:

The US Capitol     The Library of Congress    The US Botanic Gardens   The Washington Monument  The Smithsonian Musuem Complex

                                                                                 Washington Cathedral

Masonic Sites:

George Washington Masonic Memorial    House of the Temple    Freedom Plaza   National Museum of Women in the Arts
                                                                                  Mount Vernon

So who is the mysterious figure known as Mal'akh who has gone to such incredible lengths to obtain the Secret of All Ages in such a brutal and terrifying fashion?

We don't want to give away the gripping conclusion of The Lost Symbol, so suggest that you buy the book and take the tour!

Will Langdon save Peter Soloman?

Will the Identify of Mal'akh be revealed?

Why is Mal'akh so desperate to retrieve the Lost Symbol and why does he want it so badly?
