1985 Faber/ Faber hardcover. Lawrence Durrell (The Alexandria Quartet). Just after World War II, a motley assortment of treasure hunters, mystics, psychoanalysts, and former Nazis race to uncover a treasure buried centuries before by the Knights Templar. Durrell displays his diabolical playfulness and immense imagination as his characters meet and become entangled, long-buried plots reemerge, and the past and future are funneled into the present action. Here the music of the Alexandria Quintetresolves as a symphony and the series as a whole emerges as a worthy and enduring entry to Durrell's distinguished career. - Amazon

From Publishers Weekly:

In this final volume of the Avignon Quintet, Aubrey Blanford returns to Avignon, where he and friend Constance realize their love for each other. PW noted: "Durrell tells us that freedom can come only through an acceptance of death and of the essential nature of life as it is; that wishes and hopes are the source of anxiety and unhappiness."
