Publisher's Summary

The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was, and its true nature could change the modern world.

Cotton Malone, one-time top operative for the U.S. Justice Department, is enjoying his quiet new life as an antiquarian book dealer in Copenhagen when an unexpected call to action reawakens his hair-trigger instincts and plunges him back into the cloak-and-dagger world he thought he'd left behind.

It begins with a violent robbery attempt on Cotton's former supervisor, Stephanie Nelle, who's far from home on a mission that has nothing to do with national security. Armed with vital clues to a series of centuries-old puzzles scattered across Europe, she means to crack a mystery that has tantalized scholars and fortune-hunters through the ages by finding the legendary cache of wealth and forbidden knowledge thought to have been lost forever when the order of the Knights Templar was exterminated in the 14th century. But she's not alone. Competing for the historic prize, and desperate for the crucial information Stephanie possesses, is Raymond de Roquefort, a shadowy zealot with an army of assassins at his command.

Welcome or not, Cotton seeks to even the odds in the perilous race. But the more he learns about the ancient conspiracy surrounding the Knights Templar, the more he realizes that even more than lives are at stake. At the end of a lethal game of conquest, rife with intrigue, treachery, and craven lust for power, lies a shattering discovery that could rock the civilized world and, in the wrong hands, bring it to its knees.

Good Book.

I enjoyed the book. It wasn't amazing but it was a decent read. The reader is alright...nothing special. This book still deserves 4 stars.

tolerable DV Code isomer

This book promised to be entertaining in the beginning but stalled at the finish, ending in a clumsy anti-Christian skeptic rant. It is so similar in parts to the DV Code that even a character or two have the same name. This book is fine if you are driving long distances and need audible companionship, but poor if you like this genre and enjoy Christian skeptic theology.

Difficult

The writing is ok not spectacular by any means, but the narrating is awful. Uses to many accents, and tries to do voices outside of the comfortable listening zone. It’s hard to stay with throughout the book.

Just Not Good

I'm unsure if this book lacked because of poor narration or a disjointed plot and bad character development. I gutted through this one thinking something might save it, but no. My rating is charitable.

Yuck!

We have bad science int The Romanov Prophecy ( mitochondrial DNA is inherited only from your mother) to bad theology in The Templar Legacy. What a waste of a credit. No more Steve Berry for me! The French accent was way over done to the point of being impossible to understand.
