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 fascinating yarn and very well told…Speaks volumes about Leonardo’s mastery with a brush.” 

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “The combination of code breaking, secrecy, chicanery within the Catholic Church and a certain artist is by now a familiar one, but Sierra’s book, already a bestseller in Europe, is a fresh contribution to the da Vinci industry.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “No mere Da Vinci Code redux…Sierra’s breakneck plotting provides the novel’s juice, but its satisfying aftertaste comes from its erudite explaining of the art of the symbol…Sierra is a more sophisticated writer than Dan Brown, and he offers fresh perspective on the Renaissance mind.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

    " just about any book pretaining to the last supper will get my attention. "

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

    " I liked it. Made a nice follow on to reading the DaVinci Code but it's nowhere near as gripping as Dan Brown's series of thrillers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Frances | 2/12/2014

    " I probably would have liked this book much more if I had been able to really get into it instead of reading it in bits and pieces over a long time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Carolyn | 2/1/2014

    " This was an interesting book. It wasn't a huge literary accomplishment, but it was entertaining. Much like DaVinci Code, so if you liked that, you would probably enjoy this. There isn't as much adventure, though. "
