Highly Anticipated New Dan Brown Book Hitting Store Shelves

September 13, 2009

(ChattahBox)— Dan Brown, author of the blockbuster book, The Da Vinci Code has not published a book in six years and his fans are anxious to dig into another thriller featuring Catholic cults and obscure symbols of Christianity. Well, the long wait is just about to end, as Brown’s new book, The Lost Symbol goes on sale on Tuesday.

The highly anticipated sequel to The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, offers readers more adventures of Harvard symbologist, Robert Langdon. The details of the storyline of the new book have remained a closely guarded secret. All that is known so far, is that the story takes place over a 12-hour period in Washington, D.C. (maybe). And that Freemasons may be involved (maybe).

The Lost Symbol has remained No. 1 on the Amazon bestseller list for the past several months and it hasn’t even been released yet. Security is so tight for this book that Amazon is keeping it under lock and key with around the clock guards.

Amazon CEO Jeffrey Bezos said the book “remains so deeply under wraps that we’ve agreed to keep our stockpile under 24-hour guard in its own chain-link enclosure, with two locks requiring two separate people for entry.”

Booksellers are hoping; the new release will bring in a surge of customers to both its online and brick and mortar stores to give a boost to recent sagging sales. Normally, once customers enter the bookstore to purchase a bestseller, they buy earlier titles by the same author and may discover new authors as well.

Many bookstores plan to stay open until after midnight on Monday, to offer customers a chance to be one of the first to purchase Dan Brown’s new book at a stroke past the hour.
