Abstract:

Dan Brown is already one of the bestselling authors that the world has ever seen.Due to the success of his gripping novels Digital Fortress, Deception Point, Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol, he has become a household name. But how did he achieve this? What's his secret? This in - depth biography reveals how, with a heady mix of science, religion, fact and fiction, he has captured the public's imagination and secured his place in the history of the popular thriller. Despite his enormous success, Dan Brown is an unassuming man. This book includes a look at his early years - long before the fame and fortune that came with the success of The Da Vinci Code - when he was a musician, teacher and writer of humour titles. It also examines the crucial role that his wife, Blythe Brown, plays in his life and work. His skilful storytelling, with its intricate, twisting plotlines, is certainly something that sets him apart from other thriller writers. The Dan Brown Enigma also looks at his extraordinary attention to detail and reveals how important research is to each of his books. Through hours and hours of careful study, he brings to light ancient rites and rituals that are buried deep within our collective subconscious. This combination of Brown's imagination with the secret truths, myths and legends from a variety of ancient institutions - including the Freemasons and the Catholic Church - are perhaps why his novels are so successful...and, at times, controversial.
