While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.

  • Good Murder Mystery But Offensive to Christian Religion

    Really good plot for a murder mystery. However, as an active Catholic who did not know what the book was about, I disagree with the view presented about the Church and her doctrines. I found it offensive that the book was supposedly stating that the Catholic Church's believe of Christ being both man and divine and other aspects mentioned are incorrect.

    I'll be honest, I saw the movie before I read the book-the book was released when I was in 7th grade so obviously Cosmo and Seventeen magazine were ranked a little bit higher than Dan Brown lol. Once I saw the movie though, I felt like I couldn't really appreciate it until I read the book myself-and I LOVED it. It started my summer of binge reading every Dan Brown book released at the time and I can't wait until the next book. Two thumbs up from this girl.
