Brown's first three novels went without notice, selling only a few thousand copies. His fourth novel, ''The Da Vinci Code'' unexpectedly became a huge international bestseller and made him a household name.

** The protagonist and the sidekick [[SerialRomeo hook up in the end.end]], and there's [[ReallyGetsAround a new female sidekick for every book.]]


Added DiffLines:

** In the Langdon novels, he wears a [[OutdatedOutfit rather unfashionable]] outfit of [[IconicOutfit chino pants, a dark brown turtleneck, a Harris tweed jacket, and an old limited edition Mickey Mouse watch]]. [[LimitedWardrobe He hates wearing anything else.]] His jacket and/or watch will become a {{MacGuffin}} at some point.

** The male protagonist is teamed up with a nubile [[PluckyGirl female]] [[TheWatson sidekick]]. She'll be brilliant, but the protagonist will find a way to make her look just a hair less intelligent than he is. A good example is Sienna Brooks in Inferno. She's got a [[IncrediblyLamePun mind-blowing]] IQ, but [[MenAreBetterThanWomen Robert Langdon quickly asserts his perceived greater knowledge]] by tossing out esoteric anecdotes on Florentine architecture, and throughout the book Sienna tells him in one way or the other that he's probably smarter than she is.

* IdiotBall: All of his Robert Langdon novels start in this fashion. A high-ranking man has been or is about to be murdered in a high-profile, public, and historically and/or socially meaningful site, and it's going to end up with more death? A powerful, most likely govenrmental organization (FBI, CIA, WHO, CERN, Interpol, DCPJ, etc.) grabs the Idiot Ball first by calling an uninvolved ''art historian'' and telling him to fix it. They lose it fairly quickly when that art historian grabs the ball and runs by saying "Sure!"
