The Templar Thief (Peter Sparke Book 4)
The Crusader States are dying, falling to victorious Saracen armies, and as they fall the very existence of the Knights Templar is threatened.
Faced with inevitable disaster, the Grand Master is in a race against time to safeguard some of the Order’s greatest possessions. The Mason, one of his most trusted lieutenants is entrusted with a mission to recover a hidden relic, so valuable to the Christian world that its very existence is a closely guarded secret.
Within the ranks of the Order, there are few knights who can be sent on a task that demands much more than mere courage. The Mason selects one of the most troublesome knights in the Order to carry out this task: to travel to the heart of a city under imminent threat and recover the mysterious object alone, without raising suspicion that the Order is preparing for defeat.
