Secrets of the Widow's Son: The Mysteries Surrounding the Sequel to The Da Vinci Code

"Is There No Help for the Widow's Son?"

This hidden code is buried deep within the dust jacket of Dan Brown's phenomenal bestseller, The DaVinci Code. Tracing this enigma to its sources in Freemasonry, Mormonism, and early Christian apocrypha, investigative journalist David A. Shugarts was able to predict that the next Dan Brown book would be focused on the secret history of the Freemasons and set in Washington, D.C. Sue enough, Dan Brown has confirmed this prediction. His publisher even announced the book would be entitled The Solomon Key -- a title whose multiple meanings resonate with Freemasonry, Gnosticism, occult belief, and conspiracy theory in ways Shugarts now explores in the groundbreaking Secrets of the Widow's Son.

This book is not a spoiler; it gives away no plot lines from Dan Brown's much-awaited sequel to The DaVinci Code. Rather, Secrets of the Widow's Son reveals a fascinating and ultimately shocking trail of historical details and mythic clues, rummaging through the raw materials from which Dan Brown has indicated his new novel will be constructed.

Inside are the symbols, themes, and ciphers likely to populate The Solomon Key. In Secrets of the Widow's Son you will learn about a new version of American history, including essential information about:

  • George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and other Freemasons who were America's Founding Fathers
  • Washington, D.C.'s hidden documents, buried treasure, coded artworks, and secret crypts
  • Important Masonic symbols such as the Lewis Key and the all-seeing eye -- as well as hieroglyphics, Kabbalah, Tarot, and magic squares
  • Dan Brown's cryptic book codes -- and their revealing messages

The world breathlessly awaits Dan Brown's The Solomon Key. But you need not await the mysteries, adventures, themes, and historical figures likely to appear in that book -- because now there is Secrets of the Widow's Son.
