Publisher's Summary

At last, the book more than a million fans are waiting for: the sequel to The Last Templar.
With its iconic title and unmistakable cover, Raymond Khoury's million-copy- selling The Last Templar remains one of the most memorable thriller publications of the last decade. Finally, after four long years, Khoury returns to the world of the Templars with The Templar Salvation, a sequel that's every bit as eye-popping and as gripping as its predecessor.
Constantinople, 1203: As the rapacious armies of the Fourth Crusade lay siege to the city, a secretive band of Templars infiltrate the imperial library. Their target: a cache of documents that must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the Doge of Venice. They escape with three heavy chests, filled with explosive secrets that these men will not live long enough to learn.
Vatican City, present day: FBI agent Sean Reilly infiltrates the Pope's massive Vatican Secret Archives of the Inquisition. No one but the Pope's trusted secondi get in - but Reilly has earned the Vatican's trust, a trust he has no choice but to violate. His love, Tess Chaykin, has been kidnapped; the key to her freedom lays in this underground tomb, in the form of a document known as the Fondo Templari, a secret history of the infamous Templars.
With his trademark blend of incendiary history and edge-of-your-seat suspense, Raymond Khoury's The Templar Salvation marks a triumphant return to the rich territory that launched his best-selling career.

A book that "jumped the shark"

I am well-read in this "Da Vinci Code"; "Angels and Demons"; Templar mystery type books.

I enjoyed this book, generally, except for two important things:

1. The narrator's voice did not fit the role of "Tess". He cannot do female.

2. Once the "things" (don't want to put spoilers here) are discovered and Tess gives her diatribe about why they are so important...well..that was the "jump the shark" moment for me.

Yes, it's fiction. I get it. However, it would be nice if Khoury knew more about worldviews, the tenets of the religions his writing likes to bash, the way science does not coordinate with "Tessa's" diatribe.

Until this, which is at the end, I did not feel the author had a hidden agenda. Just a good (not gripping but good) book ... until the diatribe and then Khoury showed his hand.

To bad about that, I think. His book would have been more enjoyable and closed with less "soapboxing" if he had been able to separate some of his, apparently, ill will towards organized religion and just, simple, basic good and enthralling writing.

Written for Children

This was impossible to listen to. After the first half the bad guy has guns and bombs that are inexhaustible. While on the run stealing cars he has supplies that would require heavy supply trucks. Suddenly I thought, this reminds me of "Christmas Story" when Ralphy is shooting the bad guys in stripes with his bb gun. Save your money and time , pick something else.
