Publisher's Summary

Sean Reilly and Tess Chaykin, heroes of Raymond Khoury's best-selling Templar thrillers, return in an edge-of-your-seat story that reaches from the present day back to 1800s Mexico - and possibly beyond.

What if there was an herb, previously lost to history in the jungles of Central America, capable of inducing an experience so momentous it might shake the very foundations of Western civilization? What if powerful forces on both sides of the law got wind of that herb, and launched a violent, uncompromising pursuit to be the first to exploit it?

And what if FBI agent Sean Reilly and his girlfriend, Tess Chaykin, were, unknowingly, the only two people who could keep the lid on this existential Pandora's box, one that's capable of destabilizing the world?

In Raymond Khoury's million-copy-selling Templar novels, Sean and Tess traveled the globe to unravel ancient mysteries with present-day ramifications. In The Devil's Elixir, Sean and Tess find themselves in a race-against the clock, against drug kingpins, and even against the DEA-to merge two divergent trails, one several hundred years old, the other as current as a heartbeat, which together may lead humanity to the brink of annihilation.

Packed with the nonstop suspense and unexpected twists Raymond Khoury's fans delight in, The Devil's Elixir is destined for best seller lists everywhere.

    "Done with Khoury"
    What would have made The Devil's Elixir better?

    Stick with 3rd person narration. I don't understand why, on the third book of a series, the author suddenly decides to have 1st-person narration by one of the protagonists. Oh, and a better story would've helped.


    What could Raymond Khoury have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the antagonist seem a little more relatable. A great villain is someone that the reader can almost identify with. This guy was just pure evil just for evil's sake. I think most readers/listeners know who the bad guy is, so there's no need for overkill.


    What three words best describe Richard Ferrone’s performance?

    Not very imaginative. He only has the ability to do Male, Female, and both with a bad Brooklyn accent. One of the primary characters is a Latino drug lord. Apparently this guy sounds like every other Gringo male in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Skip this book. I am a little OCD about completing series, and this one I will ditch.
