Publisher's Summary

Tightly paced and atmospheric, The Secret Supper is a dazzling historical thriller with a unique vision of both Leonardo da Vinci's genius and his masterpiece, which you will never look at in the same way again. Milan, 1497: Leonardo is completing "The Last Supper". Pope Alexander VI is determined to execute him after realizing that the painting contains clues to a baffling and blasphemous message that he is driven to decode. The Holy Grail and the Eucharistic Bread are missing, there is no meat on the table, and the apostles, shockingly, are portraits of well-known heretics and none of them are depicted with halos. And why has the artist painted himself into the scene with his back turned toward Jesus? The clues to Leonardo's greatest puzzle are right before your eyes.

Not Dan Brown....thank goodness!

If you are looking for Davinci Code II - this isn't it. BUT - if you are really interested in a glimpse of what may have been going on in the Great One's fabulous mind you will enjoy this book. Historical fiction that challenges the mind!

What a story

I didn't read or see Dan Brown's Da Vinci's Code so I was starting with an open mind. This is the type of book which captures you and makes you want to listen for a few minutes more each time you take time to listen. The beginning and ending fit together and leaves the listener wondering "could this really have happened as described?" Just a great listen.
