The Solomon Key nearly complete?

Dan Brown the author of the Di Vinci Code novel may be nearing completion of his latest novel, tentatively titled The Solomon Key. From the “Speaking on the Geneva set of the second film to be based on one of Brown’s novels, Angels & Demons, Howard told the US television show Entertainment Tonight that Brown had finished writing the long-awaited third book featuring Langdon, and that the author was “very excited” about the novel. Howard added that although he hadn’t had the chance to read the book yet, he couldn’t wait to do so.

The news will be welcomed by fans of Brown’s fast-paced conspiracy thrillers: the book was originally intended to be published in 2006, when it was listed on Amazon as The Solomon Key. It will be the author’s first new novel since the 2003 publication of The Da Vinci Code, which went on to sell over 70m copies worldwide.

Brown reveals on his website that the new book will see Langdon “embroiled in a mystery on US soil” for the first time. “This new novel explores the hidden history of our nation’s capital,” he writes. Internet speculation has suggested the novel will focus on the Freemasons.

But Brown’s US publisher Doubleday provided no confirmation of the report, saying only that Brown was making “great progress” with the book and that there was as yet no title or publication date to share.”

It remains to be seen what light Mr. Brown will paint the world’s oldest fraternity; since this novel will bring the Langdon character onto US soil and rumor has it that is will focus on the ‘freemasons” and the US capital. This is fodder for conspiracy theorist in a big way. Now should Dan Brown go ahead and add references to the Denver International Airport then the conspiracy nuts would have a hat-trick. I have to admit that I read the Di Vinci Code and enjoyed it, the movie not so much. I will look forward to reading this book and see how our honored fraternity is placed once again into the spotlight. This public attention could bring renewed interest in Freemasonry and hopefully positive interest.
