Synopsis: In January of 1497, Fray Augustin Leyre, a Dominican Inquisitor and expert on the interpretation of secret messages, is sent to supervise Leonardo Da Vinci's last touches to "The Last Supper" painting. He was sent by Alejandro VI who had heard that Da Vinci was painting the twelve apostles without their halo of sanctity, that the chalice was missing, and that Leonardo had painted himself in the painting with his back to Jesus. This could have sent him to the inquisition. Why then did he do this? Was Leonardo Da Vinci a heretic? Full of misleading facts and controversies, "The Secret Supper" reveals the truth behind Da Vinci's best-known Christian piece. After finishing this novel, you'll never see "The Last Supper" in the same way again.
Product Description: 'I cannot recall a more dangerous and tangled puzzle than the one I was called upon to solve in the New Year of 1497...' An anonymous Soothsayer has written to Rome suggesting that Leonardo da Vinci has encrypted a secret, blasphemous code in his painting The Last Supper. Father Agostino Leyre, an Inquisitor and expert in cryptography, is dispatched by the Pope to the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie to decode the painting. Should he succeed, da Vinci will face trial for heresy - and certain execution. Full of dark surprises, The Secret Supper depicts a deadly game of wits between the brilliant Leonardo da Vinci and the man intent on uncovering the shattering secrets behind one of the most famous Christian masterpieces.
