Synopsis

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. Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci -- clues visible for all to see -- yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Langdon joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, and learns the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion -- an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others.

In a breathless race through Paris, London, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless powerbroker who seems to anticipate their every move. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's ancient secret -- and an explosive historical truth -- will be lost forever.

THE DA VINCI CODE heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightning-paced, intelligent thriller…utterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusion.

About the Author

New Hampshire born author, Dan Brown, is most famous for his tremendously successful novel, The Da Vinci Code. He relates the treasure hunt sort of story within a 24-hour period of time, using themes of keys, symbols, codes, cryptography, and conspiracy theories. They also many times feature historical themes and controversial Christianity motifs. His parents involved their children in the family dynamics of using codes, cyphers, crossword puzzles, and treasure hunts to tie together math, music, and languages. Brown's growing up years gave an excellent base for his future writings.

Brown was inspired to be a writer of thrillers after reading Sidney Sheldon's novel The Doomsday Conspiracy. He became a full-time writer in 1996. Angels and Demons was his second book published and was the first novel to include the lead character, Robert Langdon. His first few novels had very little success, but the fourth novel, The Da Vinci Code proved to be one of the most popular books of all time. With that success, his first three books also became very well received with all four novels being listed on the New York Times best sellers list at one time! The next novel, The Lost Symbol, sold over 1,000,000 copies its first day.

Since Brown's books are heavily researched, it would sometimes take two years to finish a novel. In 2006 The Da Vinci Code and Inferno were adapted to screenplays, and were very controversial. Brown has stated that he has potentially twelve books in line for the future.
