.. You won't be disappointed. I personally enjoyed this Dan Brown religious murder-mystery more than that other one (maybe you've heard of it?). I'm just upset it was such an engaging, quick read because now I'll have to find another book to hold me over during a business trip next week to Denver.
A&D follows Harvard Symbologist Robert Langdon in a thrilling twist of events to help the Vatican figure out why an ancient scientific brotherhood, the Illuminati, has killed a top CERN physicist and stolen the research institution's secret project - antimatter. The thief has strategically placed the cannister containing this interesting substance, which is much more powerful that nuclear technology, somewhere within Vatican City - a ticking time bomb underneath the Church's headquarters.
Accompanied by agile Italian physicist Vittoria Vetra, the daughter of the murdered scientist (who also was a priest!), Langdon seeks a path of illumination to uncover the truth behind the secret society, the Catholic Church and the mind-boggling implications of antimatter.
