Almost everywhere I turned, booksellers came up to me and expressed their opinions that The Da Vinci Code had taken my material. Sure, some of those are private conversations, but this continued during the book signing when there were witnesses from both my publisher and NCIBA who overheard the same thing and made comment to me about that.
Yes, we're talking witnesses and we're talking "LAY READERS."
Now, if only we get a level of justice that allows the truth to be heard in court -- something Random House has spent more than $300,000 to prevent. That's a LOT of money to keep the facts from coming to light.
Once again, one can only wonder what it is that Random House is so afraid of having come out in court.
And why Dan Brown won't testify under oath that he did NOT plagiarize my work.
They filed suit against me and have spent an awful lot of money to keep those secrets.
