    It's for "The Da Vinci Code", a current mystery by Dan Brown.

    The seller writes up a semi-amusing listing, citing how terrible the book is and that you should not buy it. In the heading - which you will see upon performing a search for the title - is THE major spoiler of the book revealed.

    Very strange. Never saw anything like it before.

    (don't search for it if you haven't read the book and are planning to)

    Ummmm, there were about 255 listings for this book.
    Which one is the one you are talking about?

    It's probably some Christian who is angry about some of the theology contained within the book. I understand it's pretty controversial religion-wise.

    Found it. I would like to read this someday... by the time I get around to it, I'll have forgotten the spoiler, but for the person who buys it on eBay, it would ruin the enjoyment of the story.

    This guy needs to learn a little bit about salesmanship.
