London, Feb 14 (ANI): Are you a fan of best-selling author Dan Brown’’s fats-paced thrillers? Well, then its time to rejoice, for according to the director of The Da Vinci Code, the author has completed work on the third book featuring his hero Robert Langdon.

Speaking on the Geneva set of the second film, to be based on one of Brown’’s novel Angels & Demons, Ron Howard told the US television show Entertainment Tonight that Brown had finished writing the long-awaited third book.

He also said that the author was “very excited” about the novel.

Howard added that he hadn”t had the chance to read the book yet, but he couldn”t wait to do so.

The book was originally supposed to be published in 2006, when it was listed on Amazon as The Solomon Key.

It will be the author’’s first new novel since the 2003 publication of The Da Vinci Code, which went on to sell over 70million copies worldwide.

On his website, Brown said that the new book would see Langdon “embroiled in a mystery on US soil” for the first time.

“This new novel explores the hidden history of our nation’’s capital,” the Guardian quoted him as saying.

According to online reports, the novel will focus on the Freemasons, but Brown’’s US publisher Doubleday did not confirm the speculation.

They only said that Brown was making “great progress” with the book, and that there was as yet no title or publication date to share.

And about when the book will appear, Brown has only said that “timing is everything”. (ANI)
