The Da Vinci Code

The story starts off with the murder of Jacques Saunière (the Grand Master Of Priory of Sion) by Silas (acting on behalf of someone known only as The Teacher) to extract the location of the “keystone,” which leads to the Holy Grail and documents which would shake the very foundation of Christianity and the Church. The police summon Robert Langdon, who is delivering a lecture in Paris, to the murder scene and ask for his help in deciphering the code Sauniere left on and near his body. Bezu Fache, the head detective, believes Langdon is the prime suspect in the murder.

Neveu shows up at the murder scene as a police cryptographer and quickly gains Langdon's trust. Jacques Saunière was Neveu's grandfather and they were very close to each other until she discovered him participating in a pagan sex ritual (Hieros Gamos) at his home in Normandy, when she made a surprise visit there during a break from boarding school. (That she had observed something is mentioned and hinted at several times throughout the complicated story, but what it is that she saw is revealed to no one, including the reader, until near the end when she reveals it to Robert).

Langdon and Neveu find a baffling cipher near Saunière's body. The first line contains the digits of the Fibonacci sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21) written out of order. The second and third lines ("O, Draconian devil!" and "Oh, lame saint!") are anagrams respectively for Leonardo da Vinci and The Mona Lisa (written in English, because her grandfather often gave ciphers to her when she was young all in English). These clues were meant to lead to a second set of clues. On the glass over the Mona Lisa, Saunière wrote the message "So dark the con of Man" with his pen that can only be read in ultra-violet light. This clue is an anagram for Madonna of the Rocks (another Da Vinci painting hanging nearby). By deciphering her grandfather's clues, Langdon finds the painting and also finds a key hidden behind it and an address and symbols of the Priory of Sion were written on the key “the fleur-de-lis” and 2 letters: “PS.” Working together, Langdon and Neveu trick the police, flee the scene and figure out the secret of the key.

The key opens a safe deposit box at the Paris branch of the Depository Bank of Zurich. Saunière's account number at the bank is a 10-digit number listing the digits of the first eight Fibonacci numbers: 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21.
