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.

    "Travel to work....."

    I drive about 40 minutes to work. This filled 10 days travel with compulsive listening.
    First book very engaging, the second felt as if it was padded slightly but the ending was worth listening for. Good stuff.

    "Good plot shame about everything else really !"

    Not a well crafted book by any stretch of the imagination and if I have another "long moment" I will scream. Sloppy research and lazy, irritating idioms "the London sun, the London police" Et al. Swift enough and harmless until it was handed to Jeff Harding to pastiche. His accents are hilarious and to my mind completely unnecessary , his Cockney alter boy is sooooo Dick Van Dyke it took me back forty years and the camp affected arch criminal is sooo Carry On up the Da Vincis I was expecting an " Oh Matron" to appear at any moment. Who holds the auditions for the readers?

    Story
    "Trully awful - so why did I enjoy it?"
    Would you try another book written by Dan Brown or narrated by Jeff Harding?

    I have read many of the Dan Brown books. Enjoyed them, even if the story lines are absolute tosh. The reading of this was truly awful, like a bad rendition of Allo Allo.


    What was most disappointing about Dan Brown’s story?

    Story was fine, as absurd stories go.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Terrible reading. Tully bad accents.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Da Vinci Code?

    All of those with the terrible french accents.

    "Take it for what it is a very good thriller."

    Like all Dan Brown books they need to be read as any other fictional book. If you do this your reward is getting to read a very good thriller.

    "Disappointed"

    Not a fan of this altered version for the "YA" audience. Would have much preferred the option for an audio version of the original book.
