The Last Templar – Raymond Khoury

An enjoyable birthday present from Karen, a mixture of modern and historical fiction in the mould of The Da Vinci Code. As the name suggests, The Last Templar features the Knights Templar , but this time the leading couple (both americans in this version, with the female as the academic, and her love interest a New York FBI agent) unearth a different long hidden secret that explains and the Templars’ strained relationship with the Roman Catholic church.

A definite page turner, which you’d expect as the author – Raymond Khoury – is a script writer, but if you didn’t find The Da Vinci Code erudite enough, I suspect this isn’t a novel for you.
