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.

Good suspense story, but still fiction

Dan Brown writes a good suspense story, but much of the information about early Christianity is not correct based on other books that I have read, written by scholars of this period. I hope people are not reading this book and believing the information in it is fact. That would be sad. Keep in mind that it is fiction! Good writers can take pieces of fact and build a compelling fictional story around it, making it sound impressive.
