Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the start of Christopher's cartoonish fourth Templar suspense novel (after The Templar Throne), a sniper assassinates the pope while the Holy Father is giving the Christmas blessing on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica. Before easily escaping, the killer also fatally shoots a cardinal, two bishops, and the Vatican's official photographer. This outrage is merely the prologue to an even greater intended act of political violence, the murder of the U.S. president, who's sure to attend the pontiff's funeral. The president's death will pave the way for the rise to power of right-wing Sen. Richard Sinclair, a story line used far more effectively by Richard Condon in The Manchurian Candidate. Standing in the way of the bad guys is the clichéd pairing of an older ex-soldier, John "Doc" Holliday, and his attractive younger female protégé, Peggy Blackstock, who respond to traumatic situations with banter out of one of the weaker James Bond movies. (Jan.)

    Ok but other titles in this series were better

    I have been reading all the books in this series and I have to say that they are very good . The action is almost non stop. The character really does travel quite a bit. But the plot lines are starting to get pretty predictable, it's kind of like he just changed some names and locations and wrote another book. Not really telling much of a new story. Some of the references in the book are not easily identifiable and that takes away from my enjoyment, but overall still a good read.

    Mediocre

    He has done better. Stretching it to put Templar in title. Appears to have worn out the series.
