Description

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. Solving 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 and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. In an exhilarating blend of relentless adventure, scholarly intrigue, and cutting wit, symbologist Robert Langdon (first introduced in Dan Brown's bestselling Angels & Demons) is the most original character to appear in years. The Da Vinci Code heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightening-paced, intelligent thriller surprising at every twist, absorbing at every turn, and in the end, utterly unpredictable right up to its astonishing conclusion.show more

Review quote

'assuming there are people left on the planet who haven't read the Code, maybe the audiobook is the medium for you... a superbly structured conspiracy thriller that tears through ideas and information, and feeds on speculation and intrigue.' -- Natalie Bushe THE HERALDshow more
