Publisher's Summary

"It has served us well, this myth of Christ."
Pope Leo X, 16th Century

The Last Templar opens with a hail of fire and flashing sword, as the burning city of Acre falls from the hands of the West in 1291. A young Templar knight, his mentor, and a handful of others escape to the sea carrying a mysterious chest entrusted to them by the Order's dying Grand Master. The ship vanishes without a trace.

In present day Manhattan, four masked horsemen dressed as Templar Knights emerge from Central Park and ride up the Fifth Avenue steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art during the black-tie opening of a "Treasures of the Vatican" exhibit. Storming through the crowds, the horsemen brutally attack anyone standing between them and their prize. Attending the gala, archaeologist Tess Chaykin watches in silent terror as the leader of the horsemen hones in on one piece in particular, a strange geared device. He utters a few cryptic Latin words as he takes hold of it with reverence before leading the horsemen out and disappearing into the night.

In the aftermath, an FBI investigation is led by anti-terrorist specialist Sean Reilly. Soon, he and Tess are drawn into the dark, hidden history of the crusading knights, plunging them 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.

    "Pleased"

    Interesting history. Good plot with great twist at the end. I enjoyed the authors take on what happened to the Templars. He made this a good mystery with action and suspense! Quite pleased!

    "The Last Templar Rocked"

    The Last Templar was an awesome book that kept you guessing on where it might lead which kept me interested and excited. I was constantly trying to guess where the story would go and was seldom right.

    "Intense"

    I thouroughly enjoyed this book. It was full of a lot of great substories that draw the reader(listener) in and keeps you there. The ideas it brings up gives you food for thought and could be great to discuss with friends.

    "Ending was somewhat anti-climactic"

    I thouroughly enjoyed this book until the last one hour of listening. I kept expecting something "more" to happen in the end and was in disbelief when it just...ended. Yes, there was a final chase/struggle but even that was just a bit disappointing. Without going into too much detail, I will just say there were too many loose ends. Even the epilogue left me wanting for more and offered no real closure to the story. Having said that, I would still suggest this book to a friend.

    "huh...not that good"

    I was looking forward to this book, but I found it a little long winded. An example would be when the "bad guy" confronts the "good guy" and has a 25 minute diatribe about why the "good guy" has been misled along with the rest of mankind.... OK if you are looking for something very light and don't mind having guessing what's coming next.

    "From horses to sewers"

    This is a practice in moving cardboard characters around without motive. From the opening scenes when he describes the horses as grey and chestnut with black manes (By defination chestnuts have RED manes, if they have black manes they are BAY) through the pointless trip through the sewers, this was a book written by a novice. You can't get involved with romance style characters who do dumb things without reason. This one REALLY didn't grab me! Things came up, then were let drop. How did they get the horses INTO the park? Later they had the insight that they were probably police horses. Fine, doesn't it seem likely that a police department would NOTICE their horses missing??? And maybe a police department would report them!!! If they HAD the horses they certainly didn't get returned and someone would have noticed them missing. The rest doesn't get any better. There are so many loose ends I could weave a blanket!

    "Good detail and story line"

    it was a good story and a good plot, however there are some things that I would have done differently. Such as being left in Turkey there would have been no forgiveness.

    "Not a bad book"

    The story is decent. I had a hard time keeping interested. The characters are predictable, but there is a decent plot twist.
