• Random House sued ME; not the other way around.
  • Random House filed suit to silence the facts I was posting on the web.
  • There has been NO trial on the facts, only the Random House effort to prevent a trial.
  • The only sworn statements made under penalty of perjury are affidavits from me and my experts, nothing from RH.
  • The judge refused to consider any expert analysis.
  • Despite suing me first, Random House & Sony UNsuccessfully demanded that I pay the $310,000 in legal fees they spent to sue me.
  • Contrary to the Random House spin, I am not alleging plagiarism of general issues, but of several hundred very specific ones.
  • This is not about money. Anything I win goes to charity.

Connecting Da Vinci Legacy and Daughter of God

I've had several readers email me asking about the connection between Da Vinci Legacy and Daughter of God

The Linz Testament and DoG are _continuations_ of a theme I began in Da Vinci Legacy.

The THREE books are closely linked to one another. I would never have written Linz and DoG had I not started the process in DVLegacy ...

The Elect Brothers of St. Peter are patterned after and inspired by the Templars which is why

- they originated in about the same time period
- under similar circumstances
- have the same motives (protect and continue the bloodline, restore the proper leadership and theology to the church),
- the same physical treasure to protect (bones of the bloodline's origin),
- have associated themselves with scientific, literary, artistic and musical luminaries,
- have a secret that would destroy the Church as it exists today,

Plus DVLegacy has strikingly similar characters to those in DVCode and the hero and heroine who are co-equal as in DoG and DVC ... very unusual for a thriller, but symbolic of the co-equal male and female characters of God.

Then, of course, there is the issue of a similar title, which while not protectible, can be used as evidence of infringement

The equal male and female partnerships exists in all of Brown's books. Certainly the case in Angels & Demons. The protagonist in Deception Point is as far as I've read.
