Inside the 'Fortress of Gratitude' in Dan Brown's N.H. Home

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.
