- Robert Langdon
- Sophie Neveu
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. While working to solve 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, yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.
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.
The Da Vinci Code heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightning-paced, intelligent thriller…utterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusion.
Can’t get enough of The Da Vinci Code? Check out our store devoted to all things Da Vinci.
When I was little I watched my mom get lost in books by Dan Brown. For birthdays or a gift basket I always gift “The Silent Patient” or “It Ends With Us” my mom gifts ” The Da Vinci Code.”
To keep this between us my mom always gifted me books in the summer. I hated reading I found it a chore on summer vacations. Who knew that years later I would buy The Da Vinci code just to connect with her more and our passion for reading?
The Da Vinci Code is full of mystery and decryption of art pieces that will make you ask the question of whether this is true. The connection and the pieces make sense or do they? I loved the puzzle I think I am going to rewatch the movie. If you’re a sucker for history and art this book is worth the read. I mean I am here googling art pieces and looking for the clues this book describes.
Hey, mom do you want to watch The Da Vinci Code with me?
For you all, I will like the trailer below.

“Telling someone about what a symbol means is like telling someone how music should make them feel.”― Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code
Faith – acceptance of which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove.”― Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code
