Description

This book presents behind the scenes at the Dan Brown trial. When Dan Brown, enigmatic bestselling author of "The Da Vinci Code", emerged onto the steps of The Royal Courts of Justice in February 2006, the world emitted a collective gasp. The breach of copyright case against his publisher had been brought by two eccentric, relatively unknown authors of another book on the Holy Grail. But would the case ever get its day in court? To the astonishment of all, it did. Hugh Davies witnessed the trial and has recreated the tension, drama and colour of the courtroom. Follow the cut and thrust of the trial as expert witnesses are cross-examined until the moment the world had been waiting for - Dan Brown's entry into the witness box. What emerges is the picture of a man in love with his craft, a man who has sacrificed everything on the altar of dedication, and a man who emerged from the trial with his honour intact and with the respect of the world for having fought his battles and not ducked them.show more
