The Da Vinci code by Dan Brown

The story begins when a Harvard professor named Robert Langdon was woken by a detective named French, saying that a curator had been brutally murdered and has a religious symbol on his chest. He had just given a lecture on religious art.

When the Harvard professor arrives at the natural museum of art, he sees the horrific sight of Jacques Signore, who was the grand master of the priory of Sion. They desperately attempt to find Jacques Signore’s killer. On the way they find a horrible truth about Christianity and where the Holy Grail is located. They also discover what the Holy Grail is. Robert Langdon has found the keystone to where the location of the Holy Grail is. In this case the Holy Grail means a woman named Mary Magdaline.

At the end of the story they locate the teacher and discover where the grail is.

100 Malicious Little Mysteries

An excellent compendium of short ‘whodounits’. Recommended to the multitiude of CSI fans. I read a couple of the stories before easing into the land of nod and found them a great way to unwind without the violence and gore which upsets.
