Overview

The first thrilling novel in Raymond Khoury’s New York Times bestselling Templar series.

In 1291, a young Templar knight flees the fallen holy land in a hail of fire and flashing sword, setting out to sea with a mysterious chest entrusted to him by the Order's dying grand master. The ship vanishes without a trace.

In present day Manhattan, four masked horsemen dressed as Templar Knights stage a bloody raid on the Metropolitan Museum of Art during an exhibit of Vatican treasures. Emerging with a strange geared device, they disappear into the night.

The investigation that follows draws archaeologist Tess Chaykin and FBI agent Sean Reilly into the dark, hidden history of the crusading knights—and into a deadly game of cat and mouse with ruthless killers—as they race across three continents to recover the lost secret of the Templars.

I thought it story line got off to an alright start, but did not care for how it ended and expected more. The narrator was pretty good.

This title proves you can't judge a book by its cover either good or bad. The premise of this book appeared to be very interested but the writing was a little hackneyed and made you wonder who edited this book. Not a bad book but I sent it back after listening to half the disks hoping I chose better :)

This book seems to be more an anti-Christian propaganda piece than an actual novel. I'd say, read "A Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel before you read this book. Beyond that, the story is predictable and somewhat boring.

Very average

I was disappointed in this book. The title promises more than it delivers. It reminded me of one of those low budget movies that one sees produced for television. It didn't have much suspense or very engaging characters. It's not horrible, but the plot wasn't very clever. When it was done, I thought, "So that's it?"
