The most precious prize of them all... Robin Jessop and David Mallory return in the nail-biting new Hounds of God novel from Sunday Times bestseller James Becker While deciphering what few clues they have managed to recover about the Templar’s secrets, Jessop and Mallory make a discovery about their legendary treasure. Rather than gold or jewels, the long-sought prize may, in fact, be something far more valuable: information. For the Knights Templar were the original inventors of international banking. And not all of it was in money. Lands, titles and the fates of entire noble houses were placed in their keeping. The records of such transactions, though centuries old, may possibly yield the greatest wealth in the world. But hunting for such an archive places Jessop and Mallory in the crosshairs of Europe's most powerful families...

The national bestselling author of The Lost Testament returns with the first novel in a thrilling new series about the powerful secrets of the Knights Templar—and a conspiracy too shocking to believe. In a quiet English seaside town, antiquarian bookseller Robin Jessop has acquired an odd medieval volume. What appears to be a book isn’t a book at all, but a cleverly disguised safe, in which she finds a single rolled parchment, written in code. For encryption expert David Mallory, the text is impenetrable. Until an invaluable clue opens the door to a mystery, and a conspiracy, stretching back seven centuries, when the most powerful man in Europe declared war on the most powerful clan, the Knights Templar. Now, Jessop and Mallory find themselves on a global hunt for an unsurpassed treasure and this much closer to the keys to secrets that could change history, topple an empire, and bury them both alive. Because they’re not only the hunters. They’re also the hunted. From the Paperback edition.

The author of TheTemplars: The Secret HistoryRevealed continues her stunning investigation into the legendary knightly sect and the Shroud of Turin… In recent years the Knights Templar—the most powerful religious-military order of the Middle Ages—has become the focus of countless books and movies focusing on their legendary lost treasures. But what is less known is that the Templars almost certainly looked after the mysterious shroud that Christ was said to be buried in—the Shroud of Turin. Worshipped in absolute secrecy and known in its intimate nature by only a handful of the order’s officials, the fabric was kept in the central treasury of the Knights Templar, who were known for their expertise in the field of relics. In an age of doctrinal confusion, the shroud might have represented for the Knights Templar a powerful antidote against the spread of heresy. By tracing faint clues concerning the shroud’s movements during medieval times, Vatican Secret Archives historian Barbara Frale reaches back through the centuries and explores numerous complex hypotheses on the shroud’s origins and legends, offering an enlightening new viewpoint on this controversial relic. Winner of the National Cultural Prize of the Cultural Association of Marina di Carrara.

"What is the secret of the Grail?" So intoned a heavenly voice to Sir Percival in John Boorman's stylish and influential film Excalibur (1981). The sacred allure of the Holy Grail has fascinated writers and ensnared knights for over a thousand years. From Malory to Monty Python, the eternal chalice--said to be the very cup from which Christ drank at the Last Supper--has the richest associations of any icon in British myth. Many different meanings have been devised for the Grail, which has been linked to the Celts and King Arthur, the eucharistic rites of Eastern Christianity, ancient mystery religions, Jungian archetypes, dualist heresies, Templar treasure and even the alleged descendants of Christ himself and Mary Magdalene. The common thread running through all these stories is the assumption that the Grail legend has a single source with a meaning that--if only we could decode it--is concealed in the romances themselves. That meaning has become the subject of coded, secret documents and is the central feature of a vast conspiracy supposedly stretching back to the dawn of western civilization. Juliette Wood here reveals the elusive and embedded significance of the Grail story in popular consciousness--as myth, medieval romance, tangible holy relic and finally as the centre of an esoteric theory of global conspiracy. The author shows how various interpretations of the Grail, over the centuries, reflect changing cultural needs and desires. Her book will enthrall those who, like Sir Percival, seek to unlock the mysterious secrets of western mythology's most extraordinary and tantalizing enigma, and will delight students of history, myth and religion alike.
