Just as he blended fact and fiction in his earlier, controversial book-to-film, The Da Vinci Code, so does novelist Dan Brown concoct a sometimes confusing plot for Angels and Demons, the past weekend's No. 1 movie.

As long promised, The Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown is putting his hero, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, back to work. Random House will release 5 million copies of Langdon's latest adventure, to be titled The Lost Symbol, on Sept. 15, reports the book-industry trade publication Publishers Weekly.
The plot covers half a day in the life of Langdon. "Weaving five years of research into the story's 12-hour timeframe was an exhilarating challenge," the notoriously reclusive Brown, 44, is quoted as saying in a statement. "Robert Langdon's life clearly moves a lot faster than mine."
