This book combines all of the elements that seem to have become the rage for adventure/thriller fiction within the last few years. A Templar-esque secret society, mysterious archaeological discoveries, and drawn out cookie-cutter action scenes make up one half of this novel. the other half takes us back to medieval France where events that are the precursors of the modern story take place. The historical part is far more interesting, seeing as how the modern part consists of hardly anything but the main character getting chased from point A to point B by thugs. Just once, I wish someone would write a book based on this premise, but left the thugs out of it, and took time to actually develop the plot. Despite all this, I'm sure there were a few redeeming qualities in there somewhere. I just can't think of any right now.
