The elderly Louvre is murdered inside the museum, and his body is cluttered with confusing signs. When Langdell and the French talent decoder, Sophie Novo, categorize strange puzzles, they surprisingly find a sequence of clues in Da Vinci's works; clues that are visible to everyone, but are cleverly inspired by The painter which is hidden in paintings.
More surprisingly, the dead guard was a member of the Sion - a secret society whose members were Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci - and kept a terrible historical mystery. This old and explosive fact will disappear on a condition that Langdell and Novo can decode this grunge riddle while avoiding an unobtrusive hostility shadowed by all their movements.
