Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One for The Da Vinci Code fans, a terrific Templars adventure stretching from the Crusades to modern New York and the Vatican. The historical detail is superb yet it doesnât slow the plot which races along at a hell of a pace. If you are looking for something after Dan Brown, this is definitely it.

Similar this month: None but try David Hewson.
Comparison: Dan Brown, Michael Cordy.

If you like Raymond Khoury you might also like to read books by Scott Mariani, Andy McDermott and Michael Cordy.

Synopsis

The Last Templar by Raymond Khoury

1291 AD, Acre. As the city burns under the onslaught of the Sultan's men, the Falcon Temple sets sail, carrying a small band of knights and a mysterious chest entrusted to them by the Order's Grand Master. But the ship vanishes without a trace...

Present day New York. At the Metropolitan Museum, four horsemen dressed as Knights Templar storm the gala opening of an exhibition of Vatican treasures and, in a brutal and bloody attack, steal an arcane medieval decoder.

For FBI agent Sean Reilly and archaeologist Tess Chaykin this is just the start of a deadly game of cat and mouse as they race across three continents in search of the ruthless killers - and a centuries-old mystery...
