Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou.

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. Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see, yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Langdon joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, and learns the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion, an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others.

In a breathless race through Paris, London, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless powerbroker who seems to anticipate their every move. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's ancient secret, and an explosive historical truth, will be lost forever.

As a special bonus, this audio edition includes Dan Brown's October 2005 speech at the University of New Hampshire, introduced by his father. The author discusses the research behind his groundbreaking novel and the controversy it has created. Also, listen to an exclusive interview with Akiva Goldsman, screenwriter of The Da Vinci Code.

    "More Catholic bashing"

    This book is another example of how our society delights in being bigoted in a veiled sort of way. Mr. Brown's lack of information about the Church is apalling and his research is superficial. His main character asserts that the Church has "alway" tried to denigrate the female in its history. Perhaps he would care to explain why the Catholic Church honors Mary to the extent that they do, and honor the acts of Mary Magdelene after she devotes herself to following Jesus in his ministry. There is enough creative fiction to be mildly interesting, but Brown's obvious hatred of the Roman Catholic Church is nauseating at times and laughable at others. I wish I had used my book credit elsewhere.

    "verifiable historical fiction - wonderful"

    I need this wonderful entertainment on my long drives to/from work - not anti catholic, an education for all. Totally entertaining - a mystery, suspense, surprises.

    "Outstanding"

    Opened up a whole new world of thought which has led me to read another 4 books on the history of issues brought up in this well written story. A must read which will open ones mind to otherwise assumed "facts".

    "Gay Jesus!"

    I don’t understand what is so mysterious and surprising about Jesus having a female wife!!!
    Somethings just doesn’t make sense there.
    I could feel the huge editing that weakened the intensity that could have existed.
    I would expect the author to be more honest and courageous.
    He should have openly told what actually he intended to say; gay Jesus!
