gnostic in this well tooled Da Vinci Code knockoff, his fourth novel The Romanov Prophecy Ex U.S Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is intrigued when he sees a purse snatcher fling himself from a Copenhagen tower to avoid capture, slitting his own throat on the way down for good measure Further snooping introduces him to the medieval religious order of the Knights Templar and the fervid subculture searching for the Great Devise, an ancient Templar archive that supposedly disproves the Resurrection and demolishes traditional Christian dogma The trail leads to a French village replete with arcane clues to the archive s whereabouts, and to an oddball cast of scholar sleuths, including Cassiopeia Vitt, a rich Muslim woman whose special ops chops rival Malone s Malone and company puzzle over the usual Code inspired anagrams, dead language inscriptions and art symbolism, debate inconsistencies in the Gospels and regale each other with Templar lore, periodically interrupting their colloquia for running gun battles with latter day Templar Master Raymond de Roquefort and his pistol packing monks The novel s overcomplicated conspiracies and esoteric brainteasers can get tedious, and the various religious motivations make little sense Thankfully, the author soft pedals the genre s anti Catholicism But lively characters and action set pieces make this a readable, if no plausible, version of the typical gnostic occult thriller Feb Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.The Knights Templar, a small monastic military order formed in the early 1100s to protect travelers to the Holy Land, eventually grew and became wealthy beyond imagination In 1307, the French king, feeling jealous and greedy, killed off the Templars, and by 1311, the last master, Jacques de Molay, was burned at the stake The whereabouts of the Templars treasure and their secrets have been the subject of legend ever since Now, a new thriller trieas to follow in the steps of The Da Vinci Code.There s a secret about early Christianity at the core of Berry s Templar Legacy, but he dispenses the clues too slowly The cat and mouse game between Cotton Malone, a former Justice Department agent, and a modern day order of Knights Templar is weighed down with too much confusing backstory about the Templars connection to Rennes le Chateau and the mystery that surrounds it The real life town plays a part in The Da Vinci Code as well Like Dan Brown, Berry draws on the seminal nonfiction work Holy Blood, Holy Grail for many of his themes After nearly grinding to a halt through all the premise building, the novel finally gathers steam in the last 100 pages or so, concluding with a revelation that seems refreshingly clear after the many convoluted twists that precede it Until the next Dan Brown opus is released, this should hold devotees Ilene Cooper Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved King s Field
