Overview

A man in search of the truth-against an ancient brotherhood that uses secrecy as the ultimate weapon.

In the 14th century, Templar knight Jean de St. Clair was tasked with piloting the order's treasure-laden fleets off the coast of France. To this end, he used the Jacob's Staff-a nautical instrument supposedly developed in his own time. But retired Army Ranger Lt. Col. John Holliday possesses a Staff he found in the hands of a 4,000 year-old Egyptian mummy. Holliday suspects that St. Clair may hold the key to unlocking the mystery of the ruthless, enigmatic Templars.

But there are those who believe that some questions should remain unanswered. And that the answers Holliday seeks should go with him to the grave...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the third installment (after 2010’s The Templar Cross) of this bestselling international thriller series, John “Doc” Holliday, an army ranger turned medieval historian, teams up with Sister Meg, a beautiful nun, to find a sacred relic. In a plot driven entirely by increasing danger to the protagonists, Doc and Sister Meg dodge spies from the Vatican, the U.S. government, and an ancient brotherhood known as Rex Deus as they trot about Europe researching the life story of a 14th-century Templar for hints to the relic’s whereabouts. Repeated jibes at “that silly Da Vinci book” do little to mask how much this story resembles it, but Brown’s readers will be just as happy with Christopher’s compilation of gunfights, narrow escapes, beautiful vistas, conspiracy theories, and intriguing clues in ancient art and architecture. (June)

As with the sword there was no mention of a throne.  The book barely mentioned the templars.  Paul christopher is clearly choosing titles ona subject he knowd nothing about and using our interest in the templars to sell books. I will read nothing else written by him.
