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.

The reader was fine except for his version of a French female. I can't figure out why this book was such a hot seller. I finally bought it for summer. The writer uses the same words over and over ("moreover" is one of them; who uses that word in real life?) and thinks we are too dim to remember exact paragraphs of details from a previous section so he must repeat them. It's fine for a summer read when you are zoning in and out anyway, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they are bored and the book is free.
