Here’s the set-up for Terrence O’Brien’s The Templar Concordat, 4.9 stars from 9 reviewers and just $2.99 On Kindle:
When the truth is your greatest danger, and the enemy knows the truth, things can only go downhill when the enemy finally gets the proof. And that’s the proof the Hashashin get when they steal what the Vatican doesn’t even know it has.
Now the infallible decrees of two Twelfth Century popes and three kings, stolen by the Hashashin, threaten to catapult the bigotry, bias, and religious blood baths of the Third Crusade straight into the Twenty-First Century.
When Templars Sean Callahan and Marie Curtis are drawn into the mess, they face an ancient enemy that has already nearly won the battle, a newly elected Mexican pope being undermined by entrenched Vatican powers, world class scholars who will sell their prestige to the highest bidder, and terrorists lingering over lattes in sidewalk cafes.
Moving from Rome to London, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia, Callahan and Curtis are desperate to find some way to stem the success the Hashashin are having enlisting the majority of moderate Muslims in their Jihad.
Could hardly put it down for 2 days. Highly recommended. –CWS
Wow, What an exciting ride! I didn’t want the book to end. Terrance O’Brien can really, really write! If you like Vince Flynn, Jack DuBrul, Brad Thor, Dan Brown and similar authors you are going to love this new author.– buffmiller
It is definitely of the caliber of the DaVinci Code and its progeny. I have really enjoyed reading it. –Soozie
Along the lines of The DaVinci Code and Steve Berry’s books, Templar Concordat is the perfect mix of history and action. The history sets the stage in the beginning of the book, then the action takes over and never stops. –Common Sense Colorado
After leaving the Marine Corps I began a career in mine and oil field development. So, I have followed the oil fields spanning Alaska, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia, and now live with my wife in Kansas City where I became a floor trader at the Kansas City Board of Trade. I’m currently working on Avram’s Cross, the second book in the series.
