This is book number 2 in the Robert Langdon series.
Not to say 'I told you so', but I DID send in a very early review to Random House, get quoted (along with the buyer from Borders, US) and talk several times on the phone to Dan Brown himself - all before The DaVinci Code was even published. (We even thought Mr. Brown might stop here on tour until it became obvious that my prediction would come true in a huge way!)
All of the hullabaloo? It's a novel, people....read it to enjoy!— Jill

While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.
Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.
