This is the twelfth book in David Brody's Templars in America series. I have to admit to these being a guilty pleasure of mine. I love the idea of our recorded history being different from what we have been told. The idea that the west had no contact with the American continent before Columbus is frankly ridiculous. We know that the Vikings and even maybe the Romans traded with the Americas. Some books and TV series that try to expose this are frankly ridiculous in their scope. However, Brody's series is excellent. Yes, its fiction but you can't help but think they may have a grain of truth and that's the real reason I love this series.
This one has his adopted daughter trying to warn the world about a possible extinction event. It's based on the Hopi legend. At the same time Cameron finds evidence the Masons have an ancient artifact from the time of Moses. It's the usual thriller from this point on with Cameron and his daughter surviving various attempts to stop both of them.
I can't put a finger on why I like these books but they still intrigue me. Over the series the standard of the mystery has maybe slipped a little. Sometimes it feels that it's a book too far, yet I still come back for more. The series can be all read as one offs, but my OCD meant I have to read them in order in case I miss out. At the time of writing, they are 3 more to read. Guess that'll happen as I really do like this series, in spite of everything.
A solid read.
