Mon Dieu! (Category: Truth Seeker)

Adrien arranged the contents of the leather pouch carefully on the linen cloth. Their owner's body appeared remarkably well preserved, as were the scores of bound volumes arranged inside the crypt. We'd been the only ones allowed access after French officials ceremoniously broke the seal. We'd see to the books later.

Suddenly Adrien's knees seemed to buckle. "Mon Dieu!"
he whispered. "Mon Dieu!"

I don't know how long we all stared at that cloth, the numerals "1938" glinting from the American silver dollar. But Saint Hubert chapel had just become the epicenter of archaeology. Da Vinci's corpse seemed to smile.
