In his critical comments about Dan Brown's bestsellers, the author, an historian of art, omits their widely commented factographic preposterousness and focuses on the measures applied by the novelist in order to construct the leading protagonist as well as the latter's conceptions about culture. Robert Langdon, the hero of Brown's books, appears to be a scientific macho and an advocate of scientism, whose knowledge possesses all the traits of total unambiguity akin to nineteenth-century visions of culture. Brown is described as yet another 'master of suspicions', and his book is regarded as a successive example of postmodern para-religious nonsense.
