Milan, 1497: Leonardo is completing "The Last Supper". Pope Alexander VI is determined to execute him after realizing that the painting contains clues to a baffling and blasphemous message that he is driven to decode. The Holy Grail and the Eucharistic Bread are missing, there is no meat on the table, and the apostles, shockingly, are portraits of well-known heretics and none of them are depicted with halos. And why has the artist painted himself into the scene with his back turned toward Jesus?

Insipid Read

Reviewed: 04-06-06

There is room on the bookshelves for decent knock-offs, but they better be good. This author proves that simply borrowing the formula of wrapping intrigue, murder and unique interpretations of a familiar painting is not a sure-fire formula for a best seller.
