The Last Templar by Raymond Khoury

The Last Templar

Raymond Khoury

If you like medieval history and pacey mystery thrillers then this is the book for you. From Templars invading the Metropolitan museum in New York to shipwrecks off the coast of Greece, with doses of cryptography thrown in, there’s never a dull moment. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Extract

They barely managed to climb into the longboat which was now level with the galley’s deck, and the last glimpse Martin of Carmaux had of the Falcon Temple came as the battered Vessel was finally consumed by
the raging sea. The huge baulk of timber that ended in the carved figurehead snapped like a twig before the awful might of the storm, any sound it made
overwhelmed by the demonic shrieking of the wind and the hideous screams of the drowning horses.
