Summary
This instant New York Times bestseller reveals the secrets embedded in Leonardo Da Vinci's best-known Christian piece The Last Supper.

Milan, 1497: Leonardo is completing The Last Supper. Pope Alexander VI is determined to execute him after realizing that the painting contains clues to a baffling—and blasphemous—message that he is driven to decode. The Holy Grail and the Eucharistic Bread are missing, there is no meat on the table, and the apostles, shockingly, are portraits of well-known heretics—and none of them are depicted with halos. And why has the artist painted himself into the scene with his back turned toward Jesus? The clues to Leonardo's greatest puzzle are right before your eyes...

Tightly paced and atmospheric, The Secret Supper is a dazzling historical thriller with a unique vision of both Leonardo da Vinci's genius and his masterpiece—which you will never look at in the same way again.

I really enjoyed this book. I knew a little bit about this historical period and perhaps that helped my enjoyment, but I love puzzles and mysteries and this was an interesting one. I found it very engaging. Using real names from history was a great idea. I did know who the killer was, however, from the very beginning without any of the elaborate mystery solving--however, that didn't diminish my enjoyment.

Oh my. Convoluted...confusing....nit picky. Makes me glad that I am an agnostic. The characters in the book kept getting excited over minute details such as where a knot was placed in Da Vinci's famous painting, The Last Supper. I couldn't help thinking....."who cares?" The only positive thing I can say about this book is that it will help any listener understand why organized religion has caused so much grief, strife, and violence.

I wasn't sure how to review this. It's remotely interesting, only since I'm interested in the subject matter to some extent, but I can't tell you how many times I found myself drifting away and thinking about ... oh dinner plans, what I was feeding the kids, getting an oil change, and then was like "crap, I missed something" and had to back up. Clearly it wasn't keeping my attention. It's somewhat entertaining, but definitely mind gripping.
