When Father Jonathan Rose discovers his sister has been brutally murdered in Washington DC, he begins an epic journey across the world in search of truth and justice.
Leaving behind a life of dedication and faith, Jonathan finds himself unintentionally embroiled in a global battle between good and evil. A battle that will challenge his beliefs, his loyalty and his very reason for being. He finally discovers salvation, peace and fellowship in the modern reality of an ancient, secret religious order – The Templars.
Ark Return of The Templars opens in the heart of American democracy, at a Washington Christmas party hosted by a US Senator. Courtney Rose, an FBI agent investigating the Senator on suspicion of corruption, arranges for her brother to accompany her to the party. That is the last time Jonathan Rose sees his sister before she is found murdered.
Steeped in history, majestic and imposing, Castle Glennfinch sits isolated and remote in the picturesque wilds of Northern Scotland. The area doesn’t see many people. It’s off the beaten track, deterrent enough, but also, there are no tourist attractions close by to entice visitors. It has no amenities close by either, no shops, petrol stations, hospitals, no airports; there is no reason for people to go anywhere near it. It doesn’t have historical decay and rustic charm; it isn’t on the tourist guide maps – it doesn’t have the corruption of human visitors. It is not stifled by their noise, presence or their predilections for litter. If someone happened to stumble across it, and made their way to the main door of the castle, they are either met by the housekeeper or his wife, neither are known for their welcoming nature towards strangers; or they are greeted by a man who appears a little eccentric, looks a little like Sean Connery but nothing more.
“Dominique knew where he would be. Every Greek Orthodox Church contains a chair which is specfically reserved for the visiting Bishop; it is never used except when the bishop visits.
The bishop sat piously on his chair. He was mildly aware of the church door openind. gHe saw the two European men approach, a third, a Greek, waited at the back of the church near to the door. The Greek had the icon in his hand and looked nervous.”
