As can be gleened from the title of the book, this story follows in the footsteps of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. Although this book was somewhat better than some of the others of the genre that are out there, it wasn't spectacular but it was a good enough read for when you're stuck in the airport.

The main character is a linguist and that being my area of study, I enjoyed the sections on languages. He must, however, be an absolute genius to be able to translate an ancient language that no one has seen before in meer days when it took real linguists years to decipher the hieroglyphics even though they had the Rosetta Stone as a means to help them translate.

One of my main gripes was that I didn't like how every single female seemed to immediately lust after the protagonist - that was beyond my suspension of disbelief. Unless he was the academic version of George Clooney, but that wasn't the impression that I got.
