“It has served us well, this myth of Christ.” —Pope Leo X, sixteenth century 

In a hail of fire and flashing swords, as the burning city of Acre falls from the hands of the West in 1291, The Last Templar opens with a young Templar knight, his mentor, and a handful of others escaping 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 antiterrorist 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.

    " this book had a lot of hype surrounding it, and i have to be honest, i wasn't that crazy about it... i liked the plot, the way the story was set, and most of the main characters... i really thought the ending sucked bigtime though. "

    " I had to force myself to finish the book. It's like the Da Vinci Code without the thrilling suspense. If you are into different theories about religion it would be an ok read. "

    " I explained this to people as like a Dan Brown novel, but not quite as good. I read it for a book club and wasn't a big fan. "

    " The whole story was pretty unsuspensful and the ending was very disappointing. Had the premise for a great story but the author did not quite deliver. There were only a few chapters that really drew me in and they didn't come until later in the book. "
