Near the body, the Surete have found a baffling cipher. Solving the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci. These clues are hidden in plain sight for all to see, and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Langdon joins forces with Sophie Neveu, a French cryptologist, who learns the late curator was involved in the secret society known as the Priory of Sion. In a race to get answers before the Catholic Church puts a stop to them, Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless power broker who appears to work for Opus Dei - a clandestine, Vatican-sanctioned secret organization believed to have long plotted to seize the Priory's secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's secret, and a stunning historical truth, will be lost forever
