Acre, AD 1291: 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.More

Very near the bottom
No, I'm tenacious and I know there are better.
If there was one It came near the beginning.
The developing plot was directed towards an emotional non-climax eliciting a groan from this listener
At the start of the story, I could believe in the characters. They appeared to have integrity and backbone. Then, sadly, the plot became awash with sentiment, cuddles and emotional twaddle. It should and could have been an exciting gallop through accepted religious certainties, confounding dogma and the accepted norms. But it ended in the main characters in each others arms having compromised their principles. Very disappointing though, of course, Jeff Harding was a good as ever.

Gripping but confusing.
Gripping, confusing, enjoyable.
I don't have a favourite.
That's already been asked.
Yes, but I couldn't
I really enjoyed this book but am still confused by so much of this book including the subplots and the historical elements. I wish I could listen to the unabridged book, but it isn't on here.
