In The Holy Place: Sauniere and the Decoding of the Mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau, former Dr. Who writer Henry Lincoln continues the titillating historical conjecture that formed the basis of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, the inspiration for Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. Throughout, narrator Gregory Nassif St John channels Lincoln's amazement with emphatic statements and dramatic pauses, as he first chances across a paperback novel called Le Trésor Maudit (The Accursed Treasure), and then slowly unravels the book's secret code revealing a massive outdoor temple in the Languedoc. Chilling and compelling, The Holy Place will cast a spell on listeners seeking the kind of intrigue they enjoyed in Dan Brown's popular story.
In this book Henry Lincoln proposes that there is a huge outdoor temple in the Languadoc region of France, surrounding a "Pentacle" of Mountains and prominently featuring the hamlet of Rennes-le-Chateau. This temple, according to the author, was built using the English units of mile and rod.
