    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Overall

    I listened to this book only because of the hype and could not believe it sold so many copies! Its a trite, cliche-ridden (an psycho albino killer? Come on!) thriller with little to recommend it. However, the author clearly knows how to get people excited by coyly intimating that his fiction really has some basis in truth. Despite the fact that any educated person knows that his Mary Magdelene-Jesus survival story line is laughably absurd, there are enough uneducated people that he has made a fortune with his "fiction-history" game. I find this trend in pop literature, at the very least, unethical, and at worst, dangerous. One only has to remember that the "Protocols of Zion" are still routinely trotted out to know what I mean.
