In present-day Manhattan, four masked horsemen dressed as Templar Knights stage a bloody raid on the Metropolitan Museum of Art during an exhibit of Vatican treasures. Emerging with a strange geared device, they disappear into the night. What follows is an investigation that will draw an archaeologist and FBI agent into the dark, hidden history of the crusading Knights-and 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.
kiparsky (USA: MA) (2009/07/16): I resolved to quit this book after I hit page 28, and then read through to page 50 out of sheer bullheadedness. Truly awful writing, with formulaic thriller characters and dialog. But if you like that sort of thing, you'll love it. I'm glad I didn't pay for it, and I'll be happy to get rid of it.
WDWRulz (USA: MO) (2009/08/02): Over all this is a good book. I was not impressed with the excessive number of references to current affairs; I fear these references will not allow this story to become a timeless classic.
Karen (USA: MO) (2010/07/14): Just finished the book and loved it. It's combining the past and present together to solve a mystery and it is done in a skillful way.
