From the author of the gripping Amazon number-one best-selling supernatural suspense thriller Where the Dead Walk.
When molecular biologist Holly Reilly is forced to go on the run carrying a piece of technology with the potential to change what it even means to be human, she calls the only person she trusts with the skills necessary to keep her alive: her estranged husband Gabriel.
Gabe and Holly soon find themselves caught up in a secret conflict that has raged for centuries, a battle poised to spill into the modern world, threatening chaos and bloodshed.

The plot - it's both intricate and fast-paced, with a clever back-story that feeds the main narrative at just the right point.
If I had to, I'd compare it to Dan Brown's novels, only much, much more enjoyable. It's well-written, for a start.
No but I might do now.
Well, yes, but I don't like spoilers. The original approach to Jerusalem. And the ending.
I'd thoroughly recommend this book, genuinely exciting, engaging characters, a fast-paced and witty narrative style, great twists, ably delivered in Audible.
I've not got any audible narrated by Craig but he did a great job with one so would definitely listen to others that he narrates
I received this book in an audio format from the author is exchange for an honest review. Thank you John.
Action packed and fast paced for the majority of the book. The main characters were very likeable and I found myself 'rooting' for them very early on.
My only (tiny) criticism is that there was a part in the story that went on a bit longer than I thought was necessary and if I had been reading rather than listening I would have skimmed over this part.
That said, if you enjoy a fast paced thriller you'll like this one. It has the added ingredients of history and conspiracy theories thrown in as well!
I haven't read the print version.
I read the audiobook
I loved the background story on the Templars. The characters were believable, I felt I could Easily picture the characters and the scenes.
I felt it took the narrator a little time to settle into the story and characters, but once he did he was great.
There were many moments in the book I felt emotional for the characters and what they went through.
Definitely a book worth reading,
I've also listened to John Bowens chilling supernatural book 'where the dead walk' which I can also recommend.
I'm looking forward to his next.
