Review by moosenoose
Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is back to solve another mystery and to delve further into the secrets of the Free Masons and the history of Washington. I did enjoy this book, as with the previous Robert Langdon based novels. However, I did guess the twist with the 'bad guy' and assumed most of the ending part way through, but this did not stop me from enjoying the book and wanting to find out what happens next.Part of the appeal with this series of books is the fact that all of the organisations, rituals, artwork and monuments are real. They spark an interest in areas that I sometimes don't know much about and make me want to explore them in more detail - always a good thing! :)

Another 'Landgon' adventure into the mysterious world of Freemasons and the like- searching again for ancient wisdom. A great read.
