Well, not literally.
For Dan Brown’s new thriller, look no further than the District. The latest novel, “The Lost Symbol,” is set to be released September 15. The plot will again star fictional, mystery-solving Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and will take place over a 12-hour period. The location had been up to curious public until a US cover was released last week that featured an image of the Capitol with a red wax seal against a background of symbols. The cover for Britain and Australia has the Capitol and a key with a square and a cross.
According to Brown’s US editor Jason Kaufman from Knopf Doubleday (of Random House), the book is “largely” set in Washington, but “it’s a Washington few will recognize.” Brown is said to “pull back the veil–revealing an unseen world of mysticism, secret societies, and hidden locations, with a stunning twist that long predates America.”
Make sure to catch the next episode in Brown’s thrilling saga. I know I’m counting down the days…
