Retired Army Ranger Lt. Col. John Holliday has reluctantly settled into his teaching position at
Holliday's niece-and Rafi's fiancé-Peggy has been kidnapped. Holliday sets out with Rafi to find the only family he has left. But their search for Peggy will lead them to a trail of clues that spans across the globe, and into the heart of a conspiracy involving an ancient Egyptian legend and the darkest secrets of the Order of Templar Knights.
Secrets that, once known, cannot be survived...
In recent month's I've been a little down on suspense thrillers. Case in point, I still haven't even read The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown even though I pre-ordered it months in advance. As a result I was dragging my feet in reading The Templar Cross for review but once I started reading I couldn't stop.
"Doc" Holliday is so kick ass in this book. He can spot an impostor and take him down in seconds and he has an eye patch. How awesome is that? I think of him as a military pirate. LOL
The Templar Cross is the sequel to The Sword of the Templars and the story does reference some of the events in that book but it is a stand alone since I haven't read The Sword of the Templars and had no trouble keeping up. Book three in the series featuring Holliday, The Templar Throne will be out June 1, 2010 and I highly recommend all three books for anyone who loves a true action hero and suspense thrillers.
