Da Vinci... sequel to hit shelves in 2007
Dan Brown fans pining for a follow up to
The Da Vinci Code
will have to rest their eager eyes for a while longer.
The author's newest novel will not hit shelves until at least 2007, more than a year later than originally expected. Suzanne Herz, a spokeswoman for publisher Doubleday, said she did not have a more specific date of publication.
"My books are time-consuming to research and complicated to construct," Brown said in an e-mail interview to AP yesterday. "I am taking the time necessary to ensure that this new book is every bit as entertaining as The Da Vinci Code.
The forthcoming book is said to revolve around Da Vinci Code star Robert Langdon and the Masons, a secretive fraternal organisation.
