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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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...?

Sorry this yarn was twice as long winded as
it needed to be. Was not impressed by drawn out theological views. Too boring.
