Do Not Buy!
After spending three hours of torture reading the beginning of this book, I accelerated and finished the book in about four hours. Finishing the book, I came to the conclusion that it probably took Mr. Christopher about two hours maximum to write it. The book is not fiction. A book of fiction is normally based in some modicum of fact. To be generous, this book is a mediocre book of fantasy. Mr. Christopher has a one eyed Lt. Colonel doing hand to hand combat with everybody you can imagine. This wonderful fellow who, if the story is correct, is probably about 68 years old since he did time in Viet Nam and Cambodia, way too old for stunts like these. Throughout the book the author derides Dan Brown the author, all the while stealing Mr. Brown's poorest plot lines. (No, I am not a fan of Dan Brown.) It would appear that the author derives most of his "facts" regarding the US Army, terrorism and the Catholic Church from supermarket tabloids. I would rate this book an unqualified hit for the CIA to replace water boarding. Read it to prisoners and watch them scream in agony. On the other hand, water boarding might be less cruel.

What is the Templar Cross?
What exactly is the Templar Cross? After finishing the book, I still do not know. It is not defined, it is NOT EVEN MENTIONED in the entire book! I enjoyed his previous Templar Book and looked forward to this one, but what a disappointment. I'm not sure if I even care about the next book.
