From Templar Knights to Mexican drug cartels, Tom Knox returns with an electrifying new novel

Journalist Adam Blackwood is chasing down the story of a lifetime--the world's foremost Templar historian has committed suicide in Edinburgh, leaving behind a tantalizing clue about a secret object hidden in the famous chapel of Rosslyn that will connect to Templar sites throughout Europe, North Africa, and South America.

Meanwhile in Peru, anthropologist Jess Silverton is researching a bloodthirsty, sexually voracious ancient civilization that might have laid the foundations for both Judaism and Buddhism. Amid the turmoil of local gangs and corrupt drug corporations, she becomes entangled in a plot that spans continents and reaches across time. At the beating heart of the novel is a rare flower from the darkest regions of the Amazon that has the power to seduce and control all of mankind.
