Publisher's Summary

In the 14th century, Templar knight Jean de Saint-Clair was tasked with piloting the order's treasure-laden fleets off the coast of France. To this end, he used a Jacob's Staff, a world-changing nautical instrument supposedly developed in his own time. Retired Army Ranger John Holliday knows better, for he possesses a similar instrument---one found in the hands of a four-thousand-year-old Egyptian mummy.

Holliday suspects that Saint-Clair might hold the key to answering some of history's greatest questions - and to unlocking the mystery of the incredible wealth, power, and influence of the ruthless, enigmatic Templars. But there are those who believe that some questions should remain unanswered...and that the answers Holliday seeks should go with him to the grave.

    "Good story, awful narration."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    get a different narrator. the narrator almost destroys the story. he pauses way too much. He must have been paid by the recording length. example:"That was amazing!" ... long pause... said Doc.He does it every single time. Really got under my skin after a while.

    "awful narrator"

    the story is OK but I didn't care for the cheap shots at our military. comparing them to nazis and saying young people that join " haven't got a brain in their heads" even fox news had to get spit on for no reason that had to do with the story. The narrator is not the worst. That title still goes to scott brick, but this guy is a close second. He makes every person, man, woman, nun, whatever all sound like the creepy teacher on south park, mr garrison. Until it devolves to a point that even the narration it's self sounds like a south park parody. But if you like that kind of stuff you might like it. I did not. It could of been pretty good.
