Sean Reilly and Tess Chaykin, heroes of Raymond Khoury’s bestselling 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 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.

    " Very fast paced enjoyable novel. Likeable characters fun read. i really like the fact that Raymond Khoury writes his own books and has not farmed them out to other people "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 2/5/2014

    " I thought it was a good book. Kept my interest. 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 civilation is found by a present-day biologist. If powerful forces on both sides of the law get wind of that herb, and launch a violent pursuit to be the first to exploit it FBI agent Sean Reilly and his girlfriend, Tess Chaykin, are possibly the only two people who can keep the lid on this Pandora's box. A lot of people killed till the mystery is solved. "
