Publisher's Summary

Why would a collector of ancient American artifacts hand over his prized pieces to a historian and then shoot himself in the head? And why does an ancient Templar scroll in his possession refer to Jesus as "The Thief on the Cross"?  

The answers place historian Cameron Thorne at the dangerous intersection of secret American history and modern geopolitical intrigue. Following clues contained in ancient American artifacts and medieval European masterpieces, Cameron and his fiancee, Amanda Spencer, race to uncover the true secrets of early Christianity before a splinter group of religious zealots can silence them forever.

review

Mr Brody has written the best series on this subject I have ever seen. The inclusion of Mr Wolters research is also admirable.
My husband took me, the year before his death, to the Newport Tower and to the various spots except Norman's, of course
I have been researching the American travels of the Knights Templars for years. This starting with Kentucky in 1959 as a college student because I was born in Morganfield. I found tid bits and the fact that my Grandfather had purchased his farm with the Trail of Tears for a singular purpose. to save it.
He passed and my Uncle immediately had it covered over.
That whetted an appetite of why?
After many years I finally got into the that why. Much of it went back to the Knights Templar.
I lived in Alden, Mich and heard tales about portages, copper Islands my husband's Father had worked, Mancelona and tales about rocks. Rocks my in laws ashes are on.
Alden means Old One.
Next was Minnesota with the Kennsington Stone on down to Shawneetown.
Then they found runes in Oklahoma 3 hours from my own area I live and in Arizona a possible Templar grave.
I seem to be living places where Templars have been. Again why?
So I formed ideas and put a book into motion after taking more writing classes and Mr Brody formed books. wonderful books.
I love reading your books and as I read I think and.....
Great research. Just great writing.
