Constantinople, 1203: As the rapacious armies of the Fourth Crusade lay siege to the city, a secretive band of Templars infiltrate the imperial library. Their target is a cache of documents that must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the Doge of Venice. They escape with three heavy chests filled with explosive secrets that the men will not live long enough to learn.

Vatican City, present day: FBI agent Sean Reilly infiltrates the Pope's massive Vatican Secret Archives of the Inquisition. No one but the Pope's trusted secondi get in. But Reilly has earned the Vatican's trust - a trust he must now violate. He has no choice. The woman he loves has been kidnapped, and the key to her freedom lies in this underground tomb. It is a document known as the Fondo Templari, a secret history of the infamous Templars.

a good book to read...

Entertaining, but predictable. I realize that popular fiction is still in a "Dan Brown mode" of modern-day treasure hunters following historical clues, but most of the present-day action in this book struck me as contrived, and there wasn't a whole lot of meat on the hook of the historical parts of this book to draw the reader in.

Khoury likes to string out a variety of situations that result in a "catch and release" of the protagonist. Reilly is an action hero with good planning but poor execution as the villain continually escapes. This gets boring after three escapes and you are only 20 % done with the book. The most interesting parts of the book are the travels and travails of the ancient Templars.
