The first non-fiction companion to Dan Brown's mega-selling novel 'The Da Vinci Code'.
Dan Brown's best-selling novel, 'The Da Vinci Code', has become a global phenomenon, and introduced millions of readers to a mysterious world where Leonardo Da Vinci encoded hidden meanings into his paintings; and the Catholic church and an ancient secret society are locked into a centuries-old battle to gain control of the ultimate prize; the Holy Grail.
But how much of the novel is actually true and what is fictional distortion? 'Cracking The Da Vinci Code' is the first book to cut through the confusion and disclose the amazing facts that underpin the plot. Its simple A-Z format tells you everything you need to know about the facts behind the fiction, and exposes the inaccuracies and controversial fictional distortions within the book.
Featuring background information on all the key characters, illustrations of the symbols encoded in the paintings, further reading resources, and countless "extras" (such as revealing the in-jokes hidden in the characters' names), this is an invaluable resource for the many millions of fans of the book.
