Dating back to the dawn of the twelfth century, the ancient Order of the Knights’ Templar is one of the most powerful and mysterious international organizations in history. Its power lies within its ability to keep its secrets secret—and its assets even more clandestinely hidden from the public eye.

Kemp Hastings has been sent by outsiders to locate an ancient document known only as the Templari Thesaurus—the ultimate inventory of biblical deposits held by the Grand Masters of the Order over the centuries.

After a series of inexplicable deaths and even more inexplicable events, Hastings and his trusted companions, Darlene Gammay and Erica Vine, flee to Cairo, Malta, and Switzerland. They struggle to stay even one step ahead of a German splinter group desperate to locate 300 million dollars of gold and silver bullion from World War II. Hastings believes that the Order may have hidden the treasure on Scottish soil.

Once Hastings discovers the Templari Thesaurus, he is shown the core workings of the Order. He has been indoctrinated as to how the Order manages its ancient business in this modern world. As the journey unfolds, Hastings discovers the darker sides and Teutonic elements of the Order. Now he engages the modern Scottish Order to assert their military power and authority to deal with unwelcome visitors. How far will the Order go to protect itself?
