    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 had high hopes for this book, but alas! Some of the historical and religious symbolism was fun, but Dan Brown should sign up for a basic creative writing course. There are a number of ways a writer can impart information to a reader, and letting a character tell everything, not through dialog, and not through action, but by thinking to themselves, is perhaps the most boring way. And the characters are soooo dumb?

    In the latest from Nelson DeMille (author of The Lion's Game), Paul Brenner is called out of CID retirement to investigate the murder 30 years ago of an army lieutenant in Vietnam. Brenner's trip up country, with a beautiful American expatriate for company, will lead him to uncover an explosive, long-buried secret.

    James B says: "You Must Read Up Country"
    "An Adventure in Paradise?"
    Overall

    What is Up Country, besides a great book and an engrossing and entertaining audio experience? A spy novel? A murder mystery? A political thriller? An adventure novel with a love story thrown in? Or a travel log combined with a war story merged into a story of one man coming to gripes with his past? Actually it is all of these. A search through modern Viet Nam for a witness to a murder that occurred in the midst of a war, flashbacks to the war of such vivid intensity that I almost feel as if I were there, and a protagonist who is funny, exasperating and completely human. Great characters, great dialog, and a compelling plot, combined with an almost perfect ending. (The almost is a personal thing and can not be explained with out ruining the story for you.) This is a must listen!
