From the USA Today Bestselling author of The Sword of the Templars and The Aztec Heresy

Some secrets are too great to bear...

Retired Army Ranger Lt. Col. John Holliday has reluctantly settled into his teaching position at West Point when young Israeli archaeologist Rafi Wanounou comes to him with desperate news.

Holliday's niece—and Rafi's fiancé—Peggy has been kidnapped. Holliday sets out with Rafi to find the only family he has left. But their search for Peggy will lead them to a trail of clues that spans across the globe, and into the heart of a conspiracy involving an ancient Egyptian legend and the darkest secrets of the Order of Templar Knights.

Secrets that, once known, cannot be survived...

After spending three hours of torture reading the beginning of this book, I accelerated and finished the book in about four hours. Finishing the book, I came to the conclusion that it probably took Mr. Christopher about two hours maximum to write it. The book is not fiction. A book of fiction is normally based in some modicum of fact. To be generous, this book is a mediocre book of fantasy. Mr. Christopher has a one eyed Lt. Colonel doing hand to hand combat with everybody you can imagine. This wonderful fellow who, if the story is correct, is probably about 68 years old since he did time in Viet Nam and Cambodia, way too old for stunts like these. Throughout the book the author derides Dan Brown the author, all the while stealing Mr. Brown's poorest plot lines. (No, I am not a fan of Dan Brown.) It would appear that the author derives most of his "facts" regarding the US Army, terrorism and the Catholic Church from supermarket tabloids. I would rate this book an unqualified hit for the CIA to replace water boarding. Read it to prisoners and watch them scream in agony. On the other hand, water boarding might be less cruel.

What exactly is the Templar Cross? After finishing the book, I still do not know. It is not defined, it is NOT EVEN MENTIONED in the entire book! I enjoyed his previous Templar Book and looked forward to this one, but what a disappointment. I'm not sure if I even care about the next book.
