Cotton Malone has recently retired from the US special forces, to pursue his dream of running an antiquarian bookshop in Copenhagen. But when his old boss is attacked on a visit, Cotton is dragged into an extraordinary mystery - a mystery that centres around an old book, which many people seem to want, and which has already cost several lives. The book seems to point towards a connection with the Order of the Knights Templar, once the most powerful organization in the whole of Europe - apart from the Church itself - and wiped out in the 14th Century. Meanwhile, at an ancient abbey in the Pyrennees, the old Master is dying, and his deputy faces an unexpected challenge to succeed him. Someone wants to restore the Order to its former glories, to rekindle the secret it has held for centuries...Cotton and his friends must crack the codes and swerve dangerous pitfalls as they race towards a secret so explosive it could change the world.
I enjoyed the adventure that this book provides. Cotton Malone is the perfect character to base future releases upon. The Templar legends are not exactly new, but they are very well delivered here. I personally hope that future books in this series include more from Ms. Vitt.

Steve Berry does it again
I've read reviews of Steve Berry's books, so decided to see what the praise was all about. This novel leaves a lasting impression. Well written, well researched and fun to read.

Another Knight Templar Thriller!
If you are a DaVinci Code fan and looking for more, look no further. The Templar Legacy has that mixture of history and thriller that will grab you and not let you go. Cotton Malone is a character (ex-Justice Department turned antiquarian bookseller) that I will definitely enjoy reading more about. History, conspiracy, manhunts, murder, THRILLER!
