“...confident in recommending it to everyone, Mason and non-mason alike. This is the perfect a compliment to The Lost Symbol and I feel it should be on the shelf right next to it on your bookcase.”

David Naughton-Shires, Masonic Art Exchange

by Christopher L. Hodapp

Freemasonry and the founding of the United States have been intertwined since the very beginning. Now discover the secretive brotherhood of Freemasons at the center of Dan Brown’s novel, The Lost Symbol. Follow the trail of Masonic myths, legends and facts, through the streets and monuments of Washington D.C., and into the innermost lodge rooms and temples of the Order.

Christopher Hodapp (author of Solomon’s Builders and the best-selling Freemasons For Dummies) uncovers the true stories behind the Freemasons and the Nation’s Capitol, and interprets the clues and claims of Brown’s book. From Masonic presidents, 33rd degree Scottish Rite Masons and modern-day Knights Templar, to curious cornerstones, statues and zodiac symbols, Deciphering The Lost Symbol is the key you need to unlock the secrets and the truth behind these mysterious ‘widow’s sons.’
