Publisher's Summary

A murder in the silent, late night halls of the Louvre reveals a sinister plot to uncover a secret that has been protected by a clandestine society since the days of Christ. The victim is a high-ranking agent of this ancient society who, in the moments before his death, manages to leave gruesome clues at the scene that only his cryptographer daughter and her symbologist friend can untangle. The duo becomes both suspects and detectives searching not only for the murderer, but also the stunning secret he was charged to protect.

    "Unfortunately, I loved it."

    This book has some very mixed reviews. It is unique in my mind as the only book that I have ever hated to love. In many ways, the book is silly. It's popularity is almost defiantly due to it's apparent revelation of secrets, mixed with the 'holiday read' thriller genre that is is clearly a member of. In fact, I bought this book for the sole reason that I could tell people how bad it was, if the discussion arose. This, unfortunately, is not the case.

    The plot was, in many ways, simplistic and obvious. In addition, a small amount of research reveals that the 'revelations' are in fact, historical forgeries, knowingly portrayed by the author as fact. This didn't bother me, as I assumed that the entire plot was fictitious, and to find there was, even forged, evidence, for the 'facts'.

    The 'twist' in the tale annoyed me, largely because I had considered and dismissed it, thinking it 'too simple' to be true. On the contrary, and upon reflection, it wasn't too bad, and there were some clever things that I only really gathered after several times of listening. This pleased me, and I have grown to love, though resent to book.

    The narration was, at first worrying. The first few seconds of the tale gave me the impression that the narrator would be dry and emotionless, but this wore off quickly, and I felt the medium did not interfere with the literature.

    "Good plot shame about everything else really !"

    Not a well crafted book by any stretch of the imagination and if I have another "long moment" I will scream. Sloppy research and lazy, irritating idioms "the London sun, the London police" Et al. Swift enough and harmless until it was handed to Jeff Harding to pastiche. His accents are hilarious and to my mind completely unnecessary , his Cockney alter boy is sooooo Dick Van Dyke it took me back forty years and the camp affected arch criminal is sooo Carry On up the Da Vincis I was expecting an " Oh Matron" to appear at any moment. Who holds the auditions for the readers?

    "Brilliant"

    The best audiobook I've listened to so far on this site. Exciting, cliffhanging ends of chapters that keep you wanting to hear more.

    "Good book / okay narrator"

    The book is no doubt brilliant but I at times struggled with the narrators 1930's Americana voice overs.

    "Excellent story and twist on history"

    Hadn't read this as a book before hand, so had no real expectations. Listened to it on a drive to Manchester and back and really enjoyed the story and production, only criticism would be the length of it. 18 hours is a long time to listen !!

    "Mary where are you"

    I really enjoyed this, fast passed, misunderstood villains, clues within clues, classic puzzles, I listened in one sitting and have since listened to the book again.. I felt invested in the characters and wanted them to succeed..particularly liked the opening chapters, the shocking way the clues are presented to us and the way the main characters interact.. Well worth the money

    "Worth a listen"
    Any additional comments?

    This book took a while to get going but when it did, I was hooked. It was definitely beneficial that I hadn't seen the film in a long time as not remembering the many twists made it far better. I would only recommend this book if you can not remember the film in detail.

    An enjoyable listen!

    A book that raises questions and possibilities neatly packaged in a great story. I read this book a few years ago but listening to it being told was an extra pleasure.
