‘Da Vinci Code’ Author Dan Brown To Reveal Title to New Novel

Dan Brown’s publisher said Monday morning that it will publish the thriller writer’s next novel on May 14, but coyly declined to immediately release the title of the book.

Mr. Brown is the author of 2003’s “The Da Vinci Code” and other best-selling novels. On his Web site, he writes that he is currently working on the film version of his most recent book, “The Lost Symbol.” 
The new work will again feature Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and is set in Europe, where he focuses on what Random House’s Doubleday described as “one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces.”

Doubleday said the title will be revealed “later today via reader social media posts.”

In an interview with this newspaper in 2009 in which he discussed his fact-checking process for his fifth novel, “The Lost Symbol,” Mr. Brown said, “ The research is multi-layered. I’ll go to a place that I want to write about as often as three times to make sure that the descriptions are exactly right. You can’t always know from one or two visits which detail you are going to want to include. And I’ll talk to the building’s historian or specialist to make sure that what I’ve got is correct. Nobody reads the manuscript before it goes to the publisher. But my publisher has fact checkers, and you go through a very high level of scrutiny. That said, I’m weaving facts into a story of fiction.”
