At the church where his mother Connie played the organ, 13-year-old Dan Brown asked the priest what story was true — the story of evolution or the story of Adam and Eve. The priest replied that “decent boys do not ask such questions.” If the answer had been different, probably Dan Brown would not have become one of the best writers in the United States and around the world. His novels are thrillers in which he questions the questioning of religious dogmas, embodying the elements of conspiracy, mysticism, secrets kept for centuries, beautiful and smart women, and cruel killers – throughout the story.

All the artwork, religious associations, buildings, locations, scientific facts in this novel are real.
