In The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown masterfully concocts an intelligent and lucid thriller that marries the gusto of an international murder mystery with a collection of fascinating esoterica culled from 2,000 years of Western history.
A murder in the silent after-hours 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 daughter, noted cryptographer Sophie Neveu, and Robert Langdon, a famed symbologist, can untangle. The duo become both suspects and detectives searching for not only Neveu's father's murderer but also the stunning secret of the ages he was charged to protect. Mere steps ahead of the authorities and the deadly competition, Neveu and Langdon embark on a breathless flight through France, England and history itself.
Brown has created a page-turning thriller that also provides an amazing interpretation of Western history. Brown's hero and heroine embark on a lofty and intriguing exploration of some of Western culture's greatest mysteries--from the nature of the Mona Lisa's smile to the secret of the Holy Grail. Though some will quibble with the veracity of Brown's conjectures, therein lies the fun. The Da Vinci Code is an enthralling read that provides rich food for thought. --Jeremy Pugh, Amazon.comReview:
Ciphers, codes, secret societies, ancient cults, clandestine sects, religious artefacts and a labyrinthine plot are Dan Brown's currency in his new thriller. Robert Langdon, a world-renowned professor of symbology, is in Paris to give a lecture when he becomes embroiled in an arcane murder - with all the evidence pointing to him as the culprit. But this 'evidence' turns out to be a coded plea to cryptologist Sophie Neveu, who plucks Langdon out of the clutches of the gendarmes and, with his help, sets out to solve a puzzle which leads them inexorably back to the works of Da Vinci. Anyone who's a fan of the likes of Araurcaria, et al, will be drawn into this well written, artfully tangled web of mystery and intrigue.
