One Colonel Ardenti, who has unnaturally black, brilliantined hair, a carefully groomed mustache, wears maroon socks, and who once served in the Foreign Legion, starts it all. He tells three Milan book editors that he has discovered a coded message about a Templar Plan, centuries old and involving Stonehenge, a plan to tap a mystic source of power far greater than atomic energy.

The editors, who have spent altogether too much time rewriting crackpot manuscripts on the occult by fanatics and dilettante, decide to have a little fun. They'll create a Plan of their own. But how? Randomly they throw together manuscript pages on hermetic thought: The Masters of the World, who live beneath the earth. The Comte de Saint-Germain, who lives forever. They add Satanic initiation rites of the Kings of the Temple, Assassins, Rosicrucians, Brazilian voodoo, the Third Reich. And they feed all this, and much more, into their powerful computer. Abulafia. A terrific joke, they think, until the Plan assumes a life and power of its own, and turns deadly...as people mysteriously begin to disappear, one by one, starting with Colonel Ardenti.

    " I have listened to this audiobook five times in the last seven years and am about ready to start again. An Occultist's extravaganza. It is difficult to get into, but if you can, it will be worth it. Also, Tim Curry is a great reader, and made it easier to listen to than to read. "

    " Another complex book. Enjoyed it, but not my favorite of the "complex book writers." "

    " The most overrated book I have ever come across. Pretentious and non-sensical, easily could be 1/4 the size and still manage to be boring - overall a complete waste of time "

    " I loved his "Name of the Rose," but this one was a Gothic mess from start to finish, and it had one of those infuriating endings that negates the entire story. I'm mad that I finished it. "
