I hesitated even reading this book. All his others, prior to this, were somehow "fluff." They tried to be Dan Brown, or Steve Berry, or James Rollins, but somehow came out like a "grade school" version. Too simple, too much falling into place "just like that." But this book was more substantial. I find that I want to read his next Templar Book. And prior to this, I swore I'd never buy another one of his books!

Mr. Christopher has done it again! Another fun, exciting and hard to put down book. This book is really fun, dramatic, filled with good facts about the Knights Templar. If you really love this guys, the Templars, this book is a MUST. Basically, the author takes you to different places, where you meet the sick Nazis, and the hunt for the templar treasure, which in this case, it is not gold or diamonds, it is the ancient human knowledge hidden away from the Nazis. You will love this book!!
