Milan, 1497. Leonardo is completing his painting, The Last Supper. Pope Alexander VI is determined to execute him after realizing that the painting contains clues to a baffling and blasphemous message that he is driven to decode. The Holy Grail and the Eucharistic Bread are missing, there is no meat on the table, and the apostles, shockingly, are portraits of well-known heretics—and none of them are depicted with halos. And why has the artist painted himself into the scene with his back turned toward Jesus? The clues to Leonardo’s greatest puzzle are right before your eyes.

Full of misleading facts and controversies, The Secret Supper reveals the truth behind Da Vinci’s best-known Christian piece. After finishing the novel, you’ll never see The Last Supper in the same way again.

Quotes & Awards

  • “For fans of religious conspiracy and reinterpretations of religious history.” 

    Washington Post

  • “A most satisfying entertainment…The monastic life has not been depicted as vividly by any novelist since Umberto Eco’s bestselling Name of the Rose.”

    Daily News (New York)

  • “Offers a new way of interpreting The Last Supper…[and] a fresh contribution to the da Vinci industry.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Simon Jones’s talent for developing clear and nuanced characterizations adds dimension to this complicated plot, wrapped in the history of secular and Church politics. His characters reflect the class and status distinctions that had great import within the Church at the time but which may not be otherwise obvious to listeners unfamiliar with Church hierarchy. Jones sets a strong, steady pace that keeps the plot moving.” 


  • “No mere Da Vinci Code redux, this Spanish bestseller fuses an ecclesiastical whodunit with an A-Z guide to Neoplatonist philosophy and Renaissance symbology…Sierra is a more sophisticated writer than Dan Brown, and he offers fresh perspective on the Renaissance mind.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • New York Times Bestseller

    " This is a real sleeper. The main character seems to ramble in his account, but the twist is fun and the information presented is thought provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ross Bussell | 2/19/2014

    " I got really into the whole DaVinci Code thing. This book went in a similar direction, and was really slow. There was actually no real action to speak of in this, no deception or murder really (well, there was, but not on a DaVinci Code level), but it was great, I would recommend it to anyone who is into the whole religious conspiracy/holy grail protector group thing. "

    " an Italian attempt at the DaVinci Code...weak, but good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rhodora | 2/17/2014

    " Leonardo Da Vinci paints himself into his latest painting and an inquisitor from Rome must unravel the secret. Complicated story but very interesting and enlightening about the Catholic repressors. "
