There's a new player in the historical thriller genre, and his name is John Paul Davis. Conspiracy theory, the legends surrounding the Knights Templar, historical fact and global intrigue: Davis brings them all together in THE TEMPLAR AGENDA, a story so richly told you'll have trouble deciphering fact from fiction.

The story begins with the deaths of several men, all seemingly unrelated. As events unfold, a pattern emerges that reveals each death, some of which are designed to appear natural, is actually part of a great scheme of murder created to protect an ancient secret society - a New World Order who plan and direct key historical events. The story's protagonist, Mike, a Swiss Guard, is given the unusual responsibility of protecting Gabrielle, the daughter of one of the dead men and a woman also marked for murder.

The two delve into the events surrounding these murders and uncover the incredible possibility that the Knights Templar have survived until the modern day. Their relationship, at first distant, develops into one of respect, trust, and, as the plot progresses, mutual dependence as both of their fates become entangled in a 700-year old feud.

Davis' dexterity with research shines in a story that leaves the reader wondering where fiction ends and plausible truth begins. He weaves a tale of frightening intensity that sweeps across the globe, through the Catholic Church, governments, and financial giants, and delves into the moral ambiguity surrounding those who hold the reins to great power. His characters and their actions beg the question: are the motives of these powerful people altruistic or founded in greed? Thanks to a twist at the end, Davis does a brilliant job of leaving the reader wondering whether secret societies are a force for good or evil.

I read many historical/religious books and if a hint of Templar is thrown in then all the better. The Templar Agenda did not let me down,this is a fast paced thriller with excellent twists and turns, the story is built around a strong central character, who takes us to places and buildings that are described in perfect detail. We also get a very good insight into Masonic , Templar and Chritian beliefs. If you like to read this genre of books then this book is a must!

I enjoyed the book but I found it a bit hard going. Its a complicated story and not the kind of book you can pick up now and again just to read a couple of chapters. You do have to concentrate on the plot.

I enjoyed this book immensly it was fast paced, and gripped me right from the beginning. The main characterers are believable, and you feel yourself being drawn along with them, as the plot twists and turns, and murders and historical facts merge together. I don't want to give to much of the story away other than to say once I had started it I couldn't put it down. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I couldn't even finish this book, which is a shame because I was interested in finding out the secret or whatever lay at the core of the plot. The problem is the writing. It's not actually illiterate, but it's not far off. There are typos, but I could forgive most of those - every writer makes errors - but there are far deeper and more serious problems, including wrong tenses, singular verbs with plural subjects, completely incorrect use of both nouns and verbs, clumsy repetition of the same phrases - I lost count of the number of times I saw 'unbeknown to xxx' in the text - and constantly shifting point of view. The author doesn't seem to realize that when writing a scene he has to pick the POV of one person and stick to it, not hop from one character to another willy nilly. And there are errors of fact or plot impossibilities as well, like the protagonist flying from Switzerland to the UK armed with a pistol, and then wandering around Scotland with the weapon. All very clumsy and extremely amateurish.
Mind you, I still think there's a good story in there somewhere, but the book desperately needs the attention of a competent editor to sort out the grammar and writing, and ideally that same editor could cut out about a third of the text, because it really is far too long.

Everything the reviewers in the one star category have written is unfortunately true. This book is a mess. It needs a thorough reworking with a good editor because it does have the basis of a sound plot. Readers are not interested in long meetings about banking mores involving characters who make fleeting appearances, add nothing to the plot, then disappear. It's like watching paint dry and is called padding, or waffle. Similarly, descriptions of places ideal for a travelogue but where the reader visits little and wishes to revisit less.

I gave up half way through.

My advice is to withdraw this book, do a thorough professional rewrite, edit then re-publish under a different title.

As has been noted in other reviews, there are many times that the waffle and long-winded descriptions of places or meetings becomes difficult and even unrewarding to wade through. I feel that the story would not be in the least bit harmed by chopping out a significant amount of this 'padding' and it would make for a smoother read.

There are a number of irritating but minor other points (such as starting a number of consecutive sentences with the the word "Now" when people are speaking or describing the appearance of known characters in a scene by saying "the bearded man" or somesuch, to avoid giving away a plot twist) but generally these do not majorly detract from the narrative.

Unlike some of the 1 and 2 star reviewers, I didn't give up and managed to finish the book (Kindle version). I'm glad I persevered but will admit that it took more effort than it should have. The story is good, seems well-researched and has enough of the conspiracy theory and Machiavellian background to keep you interested.

One for the holiday, when there's plenty of time perhaps...?
