Finished.

Could it be that the villain (or the patsy) is the son of one of the other characters?

Off home to eat and continue reading this tripe. It’s proving to be a harder read than expected; I’m just not into it.

Dan Brown’s descriptions know no beginning; inky black voids, nondescript basements. I can believe these to be accurate ala the preface.

@monkeyfluids His name is Joachim. He comes from the briny depths to offer the secret of stonemasonry. I think.

The villain is non-Christian; we’re meant to think he is Muslim. He won’t be, ala “Angels and Demons.”

Langdon is apparently Christian. This must be an apology, through the character, for ‘The Da Vinci Code.’

Langdon seems to teach an awful lot of spurious courses at Harvard. Does his Faculty know? I’m sure the Dean would not approve.

The reference in chapter 1 to ties will foreshadow an attempt on Langdon’s life later in the book.
