Overview

The Babylon Rite: A Novel by Tom Knox

From Templar Knights to Mexican drug cartels, Tom Knox returns with an electrifying new novel

Journalist Adam Blackwood is chasing down the story of a lifetime—the world’s foremost Templar historian has committed suicide in Edinburgh, leaving behind a tantalizing clue about a secret object hidden in the famous chapel of Rosslyn that will connect to Templar sites throughout Europe, North Africa, and South America.

Meanwhile in Peru, anthropologist Jess Silverton is researching a bloodthirsty, sexually voracious ancient civilization that might have laid the foundations for both Judaism and Buddhism. Amid the turmoil of local gangs and corrupt drug corporations, she becomes entangled in a plot that spans continents and reaches across time. At the beating heart of the novel is a rare flower from the darkest regions of the Amazon that has the power to seduce and control all of mankind.

Yes, the Moche were a wacko society based on their pottery. The descriptions of the Peruvian coastal desert are vivid and accurate and since I was there this summer I should know. I think the author goes into unnecessary gory details which in my opinion really don't add that much to the plot. The hypothesis behind the plot is interesting but the link between Peru and the Templars is weak. I've read a couple of his other books and they move along. However, given the fixation with gory and certain proclivities or relationships I may or may not buy his next book

Tom Knox writes like a historian with a twist of excellent fiction.

I'd love to leave a report but since B & N has yet to make this book available to me, I can't. I've asked twice now for help and it still isn't opening. "There was a problem with the file..." that's what I get when I try to open it. And it's also disappeared from my library in the website. So, I've paid for it, wish I could read it, but all I can say is I hope you have better luck than me.
