    For fans of Indiana Jones and Dan Brown comes C. M. Palov's page-turning adventure The Templar's Secret, which will take you on a breathless ride all over the globe, and to a dark secret at the very heart of Christianity.

    A long lost gospel - the Evangelium Gaspar - holds the truth about Jesus of Nazareth and whoever possesses it will wield unlimited power . . .

    The death of the pope triggers a plot to seize the papacy. A shadowy conspirator and members of Santa Muerte, a satanic brotherhood, seek this lost gospel to blackmail the Vatican. But first they have to find it . . .

    Meanwhile Cædmon Aisquith, Templar expert and former MI5 operative, receives an ominous ransom demand: find the Evangelium Gaspar or your daughter will be killed. Racing against time, he must solve a series of clues and riddles, all the while staying one step ahead of the bloodthirsty Santa Muerte.

    From India to Spain, and finally to a Merovingian church in the heart of Paris, Cædmon hunts the most explosive secret of all - a 2000-year-old cover up that will change the course of history forever.
