Review: The Templar's Code by C.M. Palov

During the Middle Ages, rumors about an ancient Egyptian text spread like wildfire among the alchemists. Known as the Emerald Tablet, this sacred text was said to contain the secret of creation. Some claimed it was crafted by the Egyptian god Thoth. Others claimed it was written by the Greek god Hermes. But there were a few who believed its true author was none other than the Hebrew patriarch, Moses.

After lecturing at the Freemasons’ House of the Temple, historian Caedmon Aisquith and his assistant, photographer Edie Miller, are approached by an archaeologist who claims to know the whereabouts of a hidden Templar treasure. No sooner does the archaeologist ask them to decipher a series of vitally important symbols than he’s brutally murdered. In possession of the first piece of an astonishing puzzle, a digital voice recording, the couple embarks on a global journey. Clue by encrypted clue, they’re on a dangerous search to find a treasure called the Emerald Tablet.

But the quest to decipher the symbols soon becomes a desperate struggle against a terrifying adversary. From subterranean Templar vaults to the back streets of London to the shadowy channels of Washington, D.C., the enemy is tracking their every move, following them toward the very heart of mankind’s supreme mystery.

For the greatest secret in the history of mankind is the secret of creation.

I love a good conspiracy theory and had so much fun reading The Templar's Code.  The mind-bending plot with twists and turns along the way made it a very entertaining read.  I really liked this book and if you're into secrecy/cover-ups/conspiracies, you should get this book up.
