Dan Brown's Next New Book

Dan Brown is being cryptic about his next book, but what else would we expect? He has admitted that it will feature Robert Langdon again, but other than that he is keeping it close to his chest. Since his travels are a hint to where he is next sending symbology professor Langdon, we can work from there.

Although Dan travels all over the globe for book festivals and what-have-you, there are a few locations that have resonated more than others. When he was at the United Arab Emirates, our antennae started vibrating. That fit right in with a comment he made while visiting there:

“There is no shortage of material for Robert Langdon in this world. Symbols, religion, conspiracy, all of that is a really rich world to explore."

Since he always likes to plow new ground, what better place to do that than the Arab world? Talk about “symbols, religion and conspiracy,” it’s definitely all there. Add to that the Arab propensity to write in beautiful calligraphy with the words and letters shaped in such a way as to create amazing artwork. And the image thus created can also convey a message. It’s all vintage Dan Brown.

In second place among all the places Dan has visited in the last couple of years is Prague. That is a musty old medieval city with lots of secrets. And he had an intriguing comment to make there as well:

“This visit has been very inspirational…. There are certain views of the city, for example from Charles Bridge looking up at the castle, that almost don’t seem real. You can almost imagine that someone painted the perfect picture.”

So expect Dan to paint Prague into his next book. While on his way to the Arab world where a white-knuckled confrontation involving who’s-a-friend-and-who’s-a-foe carries us through the shifting border between Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Heck, I’d buy that book


The following article was published on this site before Dan Brown's Inferno book came out. 

[And our book review accompanied the

publication of the book  as shown here.]

All right . . . the cat is out of the bag . . . and running like hell through the streets of Florence, Italy. Dan Brown has given the release date for his next book -- titled Inferno -- and it's May 14, 2013. Once again starring Robert Langdon caught up in sensitive religious matters and intrigue . . . with many clues that fall like ticks and tocks from the deadly clock . . . he seeks to satisfy the lust for adventure we dearly crave.

Dan Brown says:

"Although I studied Dante's Inferno in high school, it wasn't until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world. With this new novel, I am excited to take readers on a journey deep into this mysterious realm . . . a landscape of codes, symbols, and more than a few secret passageways."

OK, so what does that mean? Dante lived from 1265 to 1321 in Florence, about 140 miles from the Vatican. The Knights Templar were attacked by the pope and King Philip of France in 1307. Some were burned at the stake and others went into hiding. Dante wrote his Inferno from 1308 to 1321, dealing with religious issues and people burning in flames. So here comes Robert Langdon into the world created by the Vatican edicts, the Templar inferno and the symbolic language of Dante's epic writing.

These are among the many issues explored in the related book Sworn in Secret : Freemasonry and the Knights Templar which is now in bookstores. If you really want to enjoy Dan Brown's Inferno, you should immerse yourself in the world where it takes place. It is very much like enjoying tasty appetizers while you wait forever for the feast to begin. Enjoy!

Dan Brown shared these thoughts on his next new book during a May 13, 2012 interview.

Dan Brown says:

"I can tell you there is another book in progress. I am having a great time with it. I cannot share with you the subject matter or the location, but it’s another Robert Langdon thriller in the world of symbols and codes. It opens in a much different way than my other books, and Langdon is in a very different situation than he’s ever been in and has to use a different set of tools to extricate himself.

"Once I pick a topic and location, I have to read a lot to educate myself. I have to meet with specialists, travel to these locations, and gather mountains of information. Once I have all the information I need, I start outlining. I’m an early riser. I write from 4 o’clock until maybe noon, I get a little exercise, then deal with business in the afternoon. I do that seven days a week.

"The work that I do, as any writer knows, is fairly time-consuming and labor-intensive and focus-intensive. If I am answering fan mail or going to give speeches or doing movies, it’s very, very hard for me to write. It really seems respectful to my fans who are waiting for a book to stay focused on that."
