This is an exhilarating thriller with a strong historical core setting up the present day saga

In 1310, Templar knight Conrad of Tripoli accidentally finds a treasure of ancient writings from Christian early days. Following the fall of Constantinople in 1453, the Church hid the material out of fear that what it contains could destroy the faith especially in the Church.

In the 1950s, a CIA hit team killed the family of Iranian Mansoor Zahed. The only survivor of the massacre he has patiently prayed for the day he can enact vengeance on the west. He knows the avenue would be to find the Conrad documents and release it to destroy one of the pillars of western religious thought. When his lover Tess Chaykin is kidnapped, FBI special agent Sean Reilly follows clues that take him to the Vatican where he believes a document exists that might prove the key to bringing home safely his beloved.

This is an exhilarating thriller with a strong historical core setting up the present day saga. The story line is action-packed from the opening fourteenth century find and never misses a beat as the centuries go by. Readers will fully appreciate the powerful fast-paced Templar Salvation as a worthy sequel to Reilly starring in the terrific Last Templar.

Once again, Mr. Khoury has included some of his personal opinions toward the government policies and leadership of the United States. Personally, this does not seem to be an issue with me, but may be with other readers. Not to the extent as in The Sign, however.
I found the book to be rather mundane, compared to "The Last Templar", until well into the reading. Not until well after 250 pages (hardback edition) did the story begin to really peak my interest. After that, the storyline became a fast paced, action filled thriller to the final page. Of course, the ending leaves this tale wide open for the final edition of this evolving trilogy. All in all, a fun read with good historical reference.

    A waste of time

    A real disappointment having read his previous work. Not well written and similar to Dan Brown's Lost Symbol which was equally disappointing. It appears only Steve Berry, if you like this genre, keeps up the good work.
