Summary Cont.
- Langdon deciphers the puzzle on the pyramid and arrives at Mal'akh's house with Katherine to rescue Peter
- Mal'akh ambushes Langdon and takes the pyramid
- He then proceeds to torture Langdon until he tells him the solution
- Langdon confesses and Mal'akh takes Peter to the location indicated by the pyramid, a temple, leaving the dying Langdon and Katherine behind
- The C.I.A. arrive and rescue Langdon and Katherine
- They go after Mal'akh in time to stop him from releasing footage of the Masons and completing his ritual to become a god
- The C.I.A. helicopter crashes through the temple, and the glass impales Mal'akh, killing him
- Before Mal'akh dies, he tells Peter that he is his son, Zachary, who was believed to be killed in prison years before
- The ancient source of power is hidden in every human, and the Bible, like other religious books, tell always this but with the years we lost the true meaning.
Robert Langdon (Main Character) - Professor At Harvard
- Robert Langdon is called down to D.C. to give a speech for the nation's top individuals
- Nobody is there and he gets a call from a kidnapper who claims he has Robert's good friend Peter Solomon captive
- The C.I.A. arrive to "help" Robert recover Peter, insisting on following the kidnapper's orders of wanting a capstone to a pyramid
- Head of C.I.A. attempts to arrest Langdon because she assumes he has the kidnapper's ransom
- Langdon denies and runs away from her, taking with him Katherine Solomon, a good friend and sister of Peter
- Mal'akh, the kidnapper, is a member of the group called Freemasons and wants to find the pyramid and capstone in order to obtain an ancient source of power
- Mal'akh also killed Peter's mother several years ago, but Peter is unaware of this
- Mal'akh lures Katherine to her laboratory, and destroys it because he thinks her research is to too closely related to his objective

The process of a man becoming a god, which is what the pyramid supposedly guards

Favorite Paragraph
“The only difference between you and God is that you have forgotten you are divine.”
“Sometimes all it takes is a tiny shift of perspective to see something familiar in a totally new light.”
“Time is a river...and books are boats. Many volumes start down that stream, only to be wrecked and lost beyond recall in its sands. Only a few, a very few, endure the testings of time and live to bless the ages following.”
