Review

Heart-stopping suspense, ancient mysteries and rollercoaster action ... a book that will have you cheering as you read (James Rollins )

The story crackles with tension and imagination from the first to the last page . . . intrigue, treachery, history and a wealth of secrets. Super (Steve Berry )

Product Description

For all fans of the Indiana Jones movies and the Dan Brown conspiracy thrillers comes C. M. Palov's brand new page-turning adventure The Templar's Secret which will take you on a breathless ride all over the globe and to a dark secret at the very heart of Christianity.



A long lost gospel - the Evangelium Gaspar - holds the truth about Jesus of Nazareth and whoever possesses it will wield unlimited power . . .



The death of the pope triggers a plot to seize the papacy. A shadowy conspirator and members of Santa Muerte, a satanic brotherhood, seek a lost gospel which holds a devastating truth about the Christain faith, which they will use it to blackmail the Vatican. But first they have to secure it . . .



Cædmon Aisquith, Templar expert and former MI5 operative, receives an ominous ransom demand: find the Evangelium Gaspar or your kidnapped daughter will be killed. Racing against time, he must solve a series of clues involving esoteric symbols and artfully encoded riddles. All the while staying one step ahead of the bloodthirsty Santa Muerte.



From India to Spain, and finally to a Merovingian church in the heart of Paris, Cædmon hunts the most explosive secret of all - a two-thousand-year-old cover-up that will forever change the course of history.



With her previous novels, Stones of Fire, The Templar's Code and The Templar's Quest, Chloe Palov has fast established a huge readership of fans of the classic conspiracy thriller - The Templar's Secret is her most ambitious thriller yet.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Templars secret - oh dear 1 Feb 2013
By Scott51
Format:Paperback
I received this book as a christmas present and was looking forward to reading it.

Now on page 400 and can't wait to get to the end. Not to see how it pans out but so that I can read something else.

Caedmon Asquith (ex mi5) seems to stumble through the story. Quite often reaching a dead end only to look up and find the answer to the next part of the mystery staring him in the face.

The story does not seem to know whether it is written in the modern age or in a style of something you would expect from the fourties.

A bit dissappointed

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry - but it was boring! 9 Jan 2013
By Allicat
Format:Paperback
I read and enjoyed the previous adventures of Caedmon and Edie. While the plots were very much in the style of The Da Vinci Code - the two main characters were so different from the usual fair I couldnt help but like them.
I can't say I liked them much at all this time round. Caedmon has become an over-the-top. overeducated "English gentleman" charicature. He spent the whole book either physically or emotionally wringing his hands over a daughter he has never met, nor knew existed until about page five in the story. If he ever had an skills as an MI5 agent - he's pretty much forgotten them in this book as he goes about with tears threatening his eyes or wincing over his sore ribs after getting beat up every few pages.

Edie is almost still Edie - but even though she is supposed to be Caedmon's partner, the importance of their quirky, unlikely relationship, which was so endearing in the first books, has been pushed aside in favour of the "relationship" between Caedmon and his daughter (the soap opera daughter who no one knew existed until she's suddenly added to the cast). Another reviewer said that she felt something was missing from this book - in my opinion - this is it. Caedmon and Edie - their relationship, their "can't keep their hands of each other" sex, the sense that they are a team. Edie isnt the partner in this book - she follows Caedmon around while he wrings his hands and tries not to cry.

The story itself was a slog to get through (I am baffled by comments like "fast paced" and "exciting" in other reviews). The Latino thugs had an almost superhuman knack of turning up in the right place at the right time (even the back seat of a rental car from out of nowhere).

Written as if the author was dependent on showing their knowledge of obscure words an phrases, if I ever read the words bete noire again it will be too soon. A shame as the storyline has merit, but the main character appears to slip between precocious historian and Hollywood action hero - a personality that doesn't come off

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun - a fast paced thriller 16 Dec 2012
By Amelrode TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I bought this book in a mad rush on Brussels airport as I hate having nothing to read on a flight except work stuff. So I did not paid too much attention what I have bought, but I was very and very positively surprised by my purchase.

From take off till I finished it a few days later I was hooked. It is fast paced thriller, with nice twist and turns. Very entertaining.

As with all this kind of books I do not understand why one takes the religious dimensions serious. It is a novel, a thriller, not a religious book.

So just enjoy the story. I have already ordered my second book by C.M. Palov.
