If you can't be arsed reading it there's a review as they read it blog on the Guardian. Warning: Spoilers galore.

Seems up to Mr Browns usual standards.

I've just the synopsis, he's not even trying to hide his recycling is he.

Quote:
Langdon is summoned to Washington by his mentor, a Mason named Peter Solomon. When Solomon goes missing and a ghastly clue is left, Langdon is sent on a rapid chase through the concealed passages of the city. He joins forces with Solomon's daughter, Noetic scientist Dr. Katherine Solomon, while matching wits with a tattooed and brilliant villain who is in search of an ancient source of power.

I hope he ends each 3 page chapter with a cheap cliffhanger.

Robert opened the drawer and gasped!

They have a similarly easy style in terms of their easy readability, but Reilly is infinitely more entertaining than Mr Brown.
