Dan Brown went on The Today Show this morning to talk up his newest book, Inferno, and take Matt Lauer on a tour of his New Hampshire home. The novelist, who's banked more than a quarter of a billion dollars just from sales of The Da Vinci Code alone, moved here after being forced to build a six-foot fence around his former property, also in New Hampshire, to keep out the looky-loos and crazed superfans. It's in his current castle—filled with "secret doors and passageways at every turn," Lauer enthuses—where Brown finds peace and quiet early in the morning, pressing a button on a large painting to reveal a hideout/office space. Below, a short video tour.
