With its 108 page full colour gazetteer section, "The Dan Brown Companion" promises to be the definitive travel guide for the Robert Langdon junkie. Covering all of the sights and major locations featured within "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons", "The Dan Brown Companion" provides all of the essential information needed to bring to life these remarkable novels. Opening hours and directions are given to places such as The Louvre, The Vatican, Westminster Abbey, Rosslyn Chapel and many more, along with detailed descriptions and in depth facts about these wonderful places. Simon Cox, the best selling author of "Cracking The Da Vinci Code", also takes us on a deep fact finding investigation of some of the major themes and elements behind the Dan Brown novels. Did Leonardo da Vinci leave secret codes within his work? Does the Priory of Sion really exist? Why is a sleepy French village central to the story behind "The Da Vinci Code"? Just who are the shadowy organisation known as The Illuminati? The death of which Pope served as inspiration for Angels and Demons? These and other background issues are explored in an in depth study that lifts the lid on the Robert Langdon adventures.
