The Templar and the True Cross
I am very happy and excited to announce that my latest book has just been published on Kindle! The Templar and the True Cross is a historical mystery set in France in the middle ages.
In 1314 Philip IV, King of France, suspects the theft of the True Cross of Christ, the most sacred relic in all Christendom, is part of a secret plot to usurp his throne. Now Philip IV must turn to the one man who has more reason for revenge against the king than anyone on earth.
Sir Jean-Marc de Montpellier, the last Templar knight, who escaped being burned at the stake when the king of France terminated the Order of Knights Templar, returns to France after a seven year exile to aid the very man who once sought his death. Now on his return to France there are others who seek the knight’s death.
Who might have stolen the True Cross?
Could it be:
One of the king’s three sons?
The king’s daughter, who is now Queen of England?
Was it a secret faction of the Church?
And what has the Guild of Carpenters to do with it?
In The Templar and the True Cross Sir Jean-Marc encounters a plethora of suspects and suspicious characters as he tracks down the True Cross of Christ and the nefarious intrigue behind it all.
