1. He summoned up all his faculties 2. His visibility increased a hundredfold after… 3. Around his temples, grey highlights were advancing making their way deeper into his thicket of coarse black hair 4. His female colleagues insisted that the grey [highlights of his hair] accentuated his bookish appeal 5. The hostess goaded the crowd [for a response] 6. Langdon forced an awkward smile 7. His eyes were still riveted on the picture 8. The room was spartan 9. He cinched [the rope] one notch tighter 10. Langdon nodded absently 11. France could not have chosen a more apt national emblem [Eiffel Tower] than a 1000‐foot phallus 12. Orgiastic rituals 13. Art aficionados revered this place entirely 14. An indecipherable confirmation [to the walkie‐talkie] came crackling back 15. Critics criticized La Pyramide as fingernails on a chalkboard 16. The pyramid is a dazzling synergy of ancient structure and modern method 17. The agent revved the engine and sped off 18. He gazed once again into the void of night, feeling dwarfed by the events 19. All systems were go 20. The pallid corpse lay on the ground 21. Drying his wounds, ho donned his ankle‐length robe 22. Their encounter in Rome had locked in him a longing…his lifelong affinity for bachelorhood had been shaken 23. He lifted his gaze and followed Fache’s outstretched finger 24. “Pagans” were literally unindoctrinated country folk 25. All of his musculature was in plain view 26. A sharp etymological eye could still spot a vestige of Venus’s original meaning in the word “Venereal” 27. She awoke to the shriek of the telephone 28. His voice sound groggy 29. She tried to shake off cobweb of sleep 30. It seemed Eve’s bite from the apple of knowledge was a debt women were doomed to pay for eternity 31. [Da Vinci’s] eerie eccentricities projected an admittedly demonic aura 32. Misunderstanding breeds mistrust 33. …Gnawing at the hand that fed him 34. His jaw tightened as he spoke through clenched teeth 35. His chin was tucked hard into his chest 36. His dark hair was slicked back with oil 37. Unblinking severity in all matters 38. Sepulchral aura of the Louvre 39. Wisp of mist from the mountains 40. The lobby outspread like an endless grotto 41. Fache ran a meaty hand across his hair 42. I was looking forward to picking his brain 43. The gallery is quite a distance on foot 44. The lift doors slid shut 45. Fache cocked his head as if making a mental note of that fact 46. The steel gate …[was] used to keep out marauding armies 47. Placing his palms flat on the parquet floor, he lay on his stomach and pulled himself forward 48. A purple cincture around his waist 49. Self‐flagellation 50. Reason seldom worked 51. The media always gravitated toward scandal 52. Fache’s whispery voice sliced the air 53. A line had been crossed 54. Lousy timing 55. He was…broadcasting the truck’s changing direction like…bizarre play‐by‐play 56. He was not yet privy to the evidence 57. Fache had used all his muscles to obtain the honor of an audience [to the Pope] 58. He was keeping his prey on a very tight leash 59. Fache’s anger stalled momentarily 60. She had been foisted on her 61. He recoiled in disblief 62. Sudden ripple of concern 63. The captain was mid‐sentence when… 64. His blistering gaze seemed fixated on something over Langdon’s shoulders 65. A woman’s voice chime out behind him 66. Her thick burgundy hair fell unstyled to her shoulders 67. He drew a seething inhalation 68. A barren suzerain between Spain and France 69. She extended a polite hand 70. His brow furrowed in apparent confusion 71. He waved her off…and produced his own phone and held it out 72. On either flank, a shadowy row of sleek buttresses jutted out 73. His father lay on the bed like a drunken stupor 74.
