The Da Vinci Code Chapter 14

By Dan Brown

Chapter 14

  • Fache is growing impatient with how long Langdon's been in the men's room, but Collet reassures him that if he were onto them, he'd have tried to run.
  • Collet understands why Fache seems so invested in making this arrest: Fache's recently come under scrutiny for his aggressive tactics and love of high-tech (expensive) equipment. If he could make a high-profile arrest using those methods successfully he stands a better chance of holding his position long enough to retire with a pretty lucrative pension.
  • Uh-oh. The cryptology department calls for Fache. It's something about Agent Neveu…and it's not good.
