Meenakshi, a Goodreads friend for a while now, found this review and it reminded me that I’d actually read this book 5-plus years ago. Retrieved from ” https: Of the four Robert Langdon books in the series, this was my least loat.

The codes are intriguing, the settings present often-seen locales in a fresh light, and Brown keeps the pages turning.

Tied to the tracks in the gathering darkness ahead and facing certain death, if not embarrassment, another keeper of the ancient mysteries including the wisdom of Solomon, not a man of the Louvre, but a man of the Smithsonian.

He is able to convince Langdon to decipher the code at the pyramid’s base, but continues to fill the tank until Langdon drowns and apparently dies.
