The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
In The Da Vinci Code, art historian and religious symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to the Louvre to help in investigating the murder of its curator. The dead man left a series of cryptic clues and symbols near his body before he died. With the help of cryptologist Sophie Neveu, Langdon discovers that some of the clues are hidden in Da Vinci's famous painting, "The Vitruvian Man." He also learns that Da Vinci, along with Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Botticelli, belonged to a secret society called the Priory of Sion. Also involved are other religious groups and secret societies who are out to stop Langdon and Neveu at any cost. This thriller's breakneck pace, ingenious clues and escapes, and sharp intelligence have already sent it to the top of bestseller lists. The New York Times review of this book is summed up in one word, "Wow." We couldn't agree more. The Da Vinci Code is a fun and intelligent read.
