Raymond Khoury is the author of five consecutive New York Times and #1 international bestsellers, starting with his debut novel, THE LAST TEMPLAR. His books have been translated into 38 languages, with over 10 million copies in print.

“...you can't let something that'll probably never happen ruin your life. You're only helping to make it a self-fulfilling prophecy”
Raymond Khoury, The Last Templar

“...maybe we don't need a heavenly bribe or the fear of hell and damnation to make us behave decently. Maybe it would be healthier if people started believing in themselves instead.”
Raymond Khoury, The Last Templar

“Greed and selfishness do seem to be central motivators of mankind.”
Raymond Khoury, The Sanctuary
