The latest rip-roaring adventure thriller from Paul Christopher featuring John Holliday and his search for the Templar Order.

Retired Army Ranger turned historian John Holliday has thwarted the plots of Rex Deus, the twenty-first-century incarnation of the Templars, all over the world. Now, the lost journal of explorer Percy Fawcett leads Holliday deep into the South American jungles on a quest to uncover the greatest mystery of the Middle Ages …

Trailed by an infamous tomb raider and menaced by a tribe of hostile natives, Holliday and his crew uncover a five-hundred-year-old society hidden in the cauldron of the Amazon. Descendants of the Templar Knights, they exist for one reason: to hide and protect the holy artefact taken from the original Temple of Jerusalem by the first Templars: the legendary Ark of the Covenant. Will Holliday’s obsession with the truth finally kill him?

Lost City of the Templars is Paul Christopher’s latest action-packed conspiracy thriller that will take readers to the heart of an ancient secret society.

Paul Christopher is the pseudonym of a bestselling US novelist who lives in the Great Lakes region.

MY THOUGHTS:

I found this book in a local thrift shop and will now offer my honest review.

This is book 8 of the Templar Series.

This book has it all: Treasure hunting, hostile natives, tomb raiders, conspiracy theories, holy artifacts, lies, determined Protagonist, bizarre happenings, 500 year old society, protectors of treasures… and more!

I would recommend you begin at the beginning of the series with “The Sword of The Templars” if you are wanting to read this series.

It’s Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft.

I gave it:
