In the fourteenth century, Templar knight Jean de Saint-Clair was tasked with piloting the order's treasure-laden fleets off the coast of France. To this end, he used a Jacob's Staff, a world-changing nautical instrument supposedly developed in his own time. Retired Army Ranger John Holliday knows better, for he possesses a similar instrument-one found in the hands of a four-thousand-year-old Egyptian mummy. Holliday suspects that Saint-Clair might hold the key to answering some of history's greatest questions-and to unlocking the mystery of the incredible wealth, power, and influence of the ruthless, enigmatic Templars. But there are those who believe that some questions should remain unanswered...and that the answers Holliday seeks should go with him to the grave.

Paul Christopher is a pen name of author Christopher Hyde. His many novels include Michelangelo's Notebook, The Lucifer Gospel, The Aztec Heresy, and the Templar series.From Publishers Weekly:
In the third installment (after 2010's The Templar Cross) of this bestselling international thriller series, John Doc Holliday, an army ranger turned medieval historian, teams up with Sister Meg, a beautiful nun, to find a sacred relic. In a plot driven entirely by increasing danger to the protagonists, Doc and Sister Meg dodge spies from the Vatican, the U.S. government, and an ancient brotherhood known as Rex Deus as they trot about Europe researching the life story of a 14th-century Templar for hints to the relic's whereabouts. Repeated jibes at that silly Da Vinci book do little to mask how much this story resembles it, but Brown's readers will be just as happy with Christopher's compilation of gunfights, narrow escapes, beautiful vistas, conspiracy theories, and intriguing clues in ancient art and architecture.
