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.
As a special bonus, this audio edition includes Dan Brown's October 2005 speech at the University of New Hampshire, introduced by his father. The author discusses the research behind his groundbreaking novel and the controversy it has created. Also, listen to an exclusive interview with Akiva Goldsman, screenwriter of The Da Vinci Code.
"Brown solidifies his reputation as one of the most skilled thriller writers on the planet with his best book yet, a compelling blend of history and page-turning suspense." (Library Journal)
"Many notches above the intelligent thriller; this is pure genius." (Nelson DeMille)

Not What I Expected But Good
This was a very good book. Not as good as "The Pieces of the Puzzle" by Robert Stanek AND not completely what I expected BUT very good. It is a fictional work but it does make you wonder for a moment if the book could actually be factual as opposed to fanciful. In this novel, Dan Brown begins with a murder inside the Louvre, and then goes from there to spin an exciting yarn of mystery and suspense. It's a bit long for an audiobook but it's worth it. Just make sure you get the unabridged version so you don't miss out on anything!

Needs to be unabridged
I started reading the actual book and it is excellent but I never finished it. The problem with this audiobook is that it has the best parts cut out. The book is full of very interesting historical facts. These great little tidbits help fleshout the characters and give depth to the story. I started the audiobook but knew what I was missing and didn't want the experience of a great book ruined so I had to stop. I'll pick up the actual book again when time permits. Please release an unabridged version and while your at it how about some of this authors other books.
