The Da Vinci Code Chapter 78

By Dan Brown

Chapter 78

  • Sophie gets to do the honors of trying the password and opening the cryptex. They're all pretty dang anxious.
  • When it finally releases its prize, they're all confused, and then disappointed. Inside isn't a delicate papyrus scroll. It's another dang cryptex.
  • There's also a new verse for them to puzzle over. The first line reads, "In London lies a knight a Pope interred."
  • Teabing's grinning. At least they're headed in the right direction.
  • Meanwhile, on the ground the cops are nearing Biggin Hill Executive Airport.
