It's a good read.. but not DaVinci Code 2
If you are expecting a Dan Brown type DaVinci Code book, this is not the book for you.
If you are looking for a book written from the view point from the time of DaVinci as he painted the Last Supper and what events MAY have influenced the great painter, then you will find this book interesting.
I found it very interesting as I like historical fiction. It is set in DaVinci's time, the story line surrounds Monks and Noblemen. The action is less physical and more entwined in innuendo and suspicions.
It's a good book for those who enjoy getting into the mind set of that long ago time. But I would NOT recommend it for someone looking for the standard Male/Female team running from the persistent gunman out to silence their hidden truth/deadly secret type of thing.
This book is more about what could have been and how it could have become that way, rather than a modern day unlocking an ancient truth hidden for centuries.
Depending on what you are expecting to get from this book, it will either be a very good read, or lack luster.
I was not expecting DaVinci Code part 2, and love historically based stories. Thus for me, this book was exactly what I wanted it to be. I am very happy with it.

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!
