    The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was, and its true nature could change the modern world.

    Good Book.

    I enjoyed the book. It wasn't amazing but it was a decent read. The reader is alright...nothing special. This book still deserves 4 stars.

    Four United States presidents have been assassinated--in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963--each murder seemingly unrelated and separated by time.
