An ancient sect. A modern mystery. The most dangerous secret ever unearthed. The bestselling author of The Lost Testament returns with the first novel in a thrilling new series about the powerful secrets of the Knights Templar, and a conspiracy too shocking to believe. In a quiet English seaside town, antiquarian bookseller Robin Jessop has acquired an odd medieval volume. What appears to be a book isn’t a book at all, but a cleverly disguised safe, in which she finds a single rolled parchment, written in code. For encryption expert David Mallory, the text is impenetrable. Until an invaluable clue opens the door to a mystery, and a conspiracy, stretching back seven centuries, when the most powerful man in Europe declared war on the most powerful military order, the Knights Templar. Now Jessop and Mallory find themselves on a global hunt for an unsurpassed treasure, and this much closer to unlocking the secrets that could change history, topple an empire, and bury them both alive. Because soon they’re not only the hunters. They’re also the hunted. Praise for James Becker ‘[Becker’s] intelligent mixture of fact with fiction really hits the spot and gets your adrenaline racing.
