If you loved the idea of Dan Brown's bestsellers, but weren't so crazy about all the arty esoterica, Terrence O'Brien's The Templar Concordat could hit your sweet spot....

(Ed. Note: When we first mentioned Terrence O'Brien's The Templar Concordat in this space last month, the book had just been published and I had only my own enjoyment of it to share with you. Since then, it has soared to the top rungs in its category bestseller lists and the 5-star reviews have started to come in from iPad or Kindle owners like the reader I have quoted just below. I hope you will click here to download the free sample or, at just $2.99, the entire book. -S.W.)

This review is from: The Templar Concordat (Kindle Edition)
Terrance O'Brien can really, really write! If you like Vince Flynn, Jack DuBrul, Brad Thor, Dan Brown and similar authors you are going to love this new author. I started reading this book on a Saturday morning and couldn't stop reading until I finished it. The book is nonstop action with exciting plots, intrigue where the stakes are high, a driven hero named Callahan, who is my new favorite character, and an ending that will leave you begging for his next book. This is an exciting and satisfying read and I highly recommend it.
Here's the set-up:
When the truth is your greatest danger, and the enemy knows the truth, things can only go downhill when the enemy finally gets the proof. And that's the proof the Hashashin get when they steal what the Vatican doesn't even know it has.
Now the infallible decrees of two Twelfth Century popes and three kings, stolen by the Hashashin, threaten to catapult the bigotry, bias, and religious blood baths of the Third Crusade straight into the Twenty-First Century.
When Templars Sean Callahan and Marie Curtis are drawn into the mess, they face an ancient enemy that has already nearly won the battle, a newly elected Mexican pope being undermined by entrenched Vatican powers, world class scholars who will sell their prestige to the highest bidder, and terrorists lingering over lattes in sidewalk cafes.
Moving from Rome to London, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia, Callahan and Curtis are desperate to find some way to stem the success the Hashashin are having enlisting the majority of moderate Muslims in their Jihad.
Outmanuevered at each step by the Hashashin, only a last ditch roll of the dice has any chance of success. But it's the only chance they have.
