Troyes, France, 1114. Bernardo de Claraval, promoter to be of the Cistercian and Temple religious orders, finds an old manuscript of chilling contents. Years later, in Jerusalem, a group of nine knights digs into the remains of the former Solomon’s Temple. Paris, April of 2006. Madeleine Tibaux, manager of the Y section on old manuscripts in the French National Library, has been murdered in her Parisian home. The previous day, she had given some clues to her friend, the journalist Pierre Blanchard
about a weird bundle of papers. Charmed by the contents of the papers, Blanchard will risk his life as well as the historian Margaret Towers’ life in a frenzied race across Paris and the south of France, while searching for the origins and the aims of a bloody Temple sect. An ambitious journalist, a sceptical and vigorous historian, shady religious orders, dynasties that go back to the beginning of times, Jacques de Molay, Clement V, Philip IV, Louis XVI, Robespierre and a pope who is in his deathbed at the beginning of the 21st century, are some of this novel characters. A novel where centuries of history have been chained into legend.
