Overview

Book #2 in "Templars in America" Series

Book #1: Cabal of the Westford Knight
Book #3: Powdered Gold


Why would a collector of ancient American artifacts hand over his prized pieces to a historian and then shoot himself in the head? And why does an ancient Templar scroll in his possession refer to Jesus Christ as “The Thief on the Cross?”

The answer places historian Cameron Thorne at the dangerous intersection of secret American history and modern geopolitical intrigue. Following clues contained in ancient American artifacts and medieval European masterpieces, Cameron and his fiancée Amanda Spencer race to uncover the true secrets of early Christianity before a splinter group of Mormon zealots silences them forever.

Just as they did in Cabal of the Westford Knight: Templars at the Newport Tower, Cameron and Amanda discover, examine and interpret ancient artifacts and legends scattered throughout North America that reveal a history of European exploration long before Columbus. But how do the Burrows Cave stone carvings, the Bat Creek Stone, the Prince Madoc legend, the Book of Mormon and the Mandan tribe of “White Indians” relate to the medieval Templars? Only when they learn about the head of Baphomet and examine Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Virgin on the Rocks do the pieces finally begin to fit together.

What they learn shocks them. And may get them killed.

WARNING: Not recommended for readers with strong Christian or other religious beliefs.

    He's Done it Again!

    Mr. Brody has done it again-an exciting page turner in the style of Dan Brown,Bernard Cornwell & Clive Cussler.I read Mr. Brody's critically acclaimed previous book in this vein
    "Cabal of The Westford Knight: Templars at the Newport Tower" and I have been waiting for this sequel which is probably his best work. Mr. Brody has the ability
    to move the action along at a very rapid pace and ,although a work of fiction, he is able to weave ,like a rare tapestry, the historical facts that support the
    intellectual portion of his work.His characters are well developed and quite believable.You are in for some fast action,intellectual challenges and several twists and turns that come at
    you at a rapid pace. There was obviously a lot of research that went into this novel and the historical aspects are well documented with footnotes and photographs. I'm sure you'll be inspired to follow up on the discoveries that are the underpinning of this story. I guarantee you'll really enjoy this one.

    Definitely worth the read

    I couldn't put it down. A great suspense novel built around the history of the Templars, Mormons, Native Americans and early Christianity.
