Fun, fast and very gripping. You know the story, and if you haven't read it by now then you really should.

A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher...

‘The mega-bestseller that brought Robert Langdon and Dan Brown to the world’s attention, this thriller has it all. There have been so many copycats but this is the first and the best. Pick it up and you won’t be able to stop reading until you finish.' Judith Welsh, Managing Editor at Transworld

Synopsis

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

Harvard professor Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call while on business in Paris: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been brutally murdered inside the museum. Alongside the body, police have found a series of baffling codes. As Langdon and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, begin to sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to find a trail that leads to the works of Leonardo Da Vinci - and suggests the answer to a mystery that stretches deep into the vault of history. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine code and quickly assemble the pieces of the puzzle, a stunning historical truth will be lost forever...

Reviews

Fascinating and absorbing... A great, riveting read. I loved this book -- Harlan Coben

Blockbuster perfection... An exhilaratingly brainy thriller. Not since the advent of Harry Potter has an author so flagrantly delighted in leading readers on a breathless chase The New York Times

Exceedingly clever... Both fascinating and fun... A considerable achievement The Washington Post

Brown's novel adroitly blends the chase-stuffed thrillers of Robert Ludlum and the learned romps of Umberto Eco... For anyone who wants more brain food than thrillers normally provide The Sunday Times

A gripping bestseller... Brown has cracked the bestseller code Guardian
