I wouldn't expect too much from the bookish side...these are thrillers first.
I admit that they're my guilty pleasure. Like reading a smart person's Dan Brown novel. But don't quote me! Makes me sound like an elitist! (Which I am, just can't be seen to be.)

It does sound fun, Jeffrey. It's rich source material for all sorts of good stories. I remember reading Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco (the autograph that got away from you) years ago and one of the modern characters is convinced he is a Templar and that Phillip the Fair is after him. Great review, my friend.

Well I was hopeful that Steve Berry would reward me with more book business exploration, but I would guess that some well meaning editor would give him advice similar to what was given to Tony Hillerman. "This is great, but could you take out all the Indian stuff."

Thanks Steve. I loved Foucault's Pendulum which at one time was one of the top selling books of all time that was read the least.
