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.

©2003 Dan Brown; (P)2004 W.F. Howes Ltd.

    "I avoided the movie to get the full flavour"

    However, although the story was interesting and I really didn't know the outcome until it occurred, I thought it was a little disappointing. I thought it was a good story, with an interesting cast of characters, some interesting plotting on the way.. The ending was all Hollywood, all happy no real enigmas. A story with this background deserved to end on an enigma.
    Jeff did a good job of reading the story.
    Thanks for the entertainment.

    "Still a great story"

    I have read this several times now - its a great story and read really well. Its a murder mystery that has huge diverse intrigue, with many interesting characters. A very western European story, with a token American thrown into the mix and includes ancient scandal. Dan Brown has a brilliant way of writing to reel in the reader/listener and convincing them that the story is truth. Great historical investigation - brilliant work. If you haven't read it, its an absolute must read.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    A great book and value for money. I'm not a religious person, but it does give you a different perspective on things. I'm only half way through the book but I am enjoying it so far. The narrator does make me smile when he is speaking French. It reminds me off the policeman in Ello Ello. But one younger past the funny side of it, it's brilliantly written and I would reccomend to anyone that has no opinion on the subject.

    "Engaging and steady paced"

    A lot of audio books seem to move really quickly or really slowly. This is well paced and engaging along the way. I'm a fan of Dan Brown anyway so perhaps I'm a bit biased, but anyone who enjoys a good mystery will enjoy this one. Some surprising differences to the movie too!

    "keeps the suspense up"

    As good a read as all Dan Brown's books. Fast paced. This one is more interesting to me however because of the symbolism and a glimpse of the power of religion/the church. Very interesting.

    "Better than the Film"

    I had watched the film, The Da Vinci Code, a couple of times but I really didn't enjoy the story. I thought I would get the book when it was on offer and, I was impressed. The book and narration is good. I found it addictive and couldn't wait to listen to it at every spare moment.

    I haven't seen the film but don't need to now as I feel I would be disappointed after this book. Highly recommended.

    "Dislike the narration"

    Overall I enjoyed it, I like the way the mystery slowly unravels and the detailed analyses of the artwork. It doesn't bother me that the theory presented here has been disproved countless times. However this could really have done with some tighter editing as it is too long and starts to drag a bit, especially in the middle. The entire book takes place over a 24 hour period but the pacing is not perfect and it is just too long a book.

    I did not enjoy the narration at all. Usually even if I'm not crazy about the voice on the preview I can get used to it as the audiobook progresses but this narrator's accent and slow, dull speech grated on me until the end. Nearly all the French characters had a very over-the-top accent, and all the male French characters were given ridiculous voices that made them all sound like thuggish brutes.
