The Lost Symbol (2009)
I had to put the book down several times because there is just a bit too much descriptive language about torture. That seems to be a theme in recent thrillers and I could do without it. Is that a sign of old age? I don't think so. As an adult, I watched the movie Jaws years ago from under my coat at the drive in. I often leave the room if something on television disturbs me.
Not a great book but certainly Dan Brown knows how to tell a good story. And his historical information creates a desire to check out the architecture of Washington, D.C.and 'google' mysteries he mentions to learn more. That can't be a bad thing.
