Ein uraltes Mysterium. Die Spur führt in den Dschungel. Und Jahrhunderte zurück. Im Urwald von Mexiko erschießt FBI-Agent Reilly einen für die Drogenmafia arbeitenden Forscher. Jahre später erreicht ihn ein Anruf: Seine Ex-Freundin wurde ermordet, ihr Sohn hat überlebt. Und Reilly erfährt jetzt erst, dass er der Vater ist. Der kleine Alex zeigt allerdings eine unerklärliche Scheu vor ihm. Bald ahnt Reilly, dass die Drogenmafia hinter dem Mord steckt. Offenbar geht es um ein sehr altes Geheimnis aus dem Dschungel. Und die Narcos haben es auf das Kind abgesehen. Nur warum? Es stellt sich heraus, dass Alex in Therapie war. Bei einem Neurobiologen mit äußerst seltsamen Forschungsgebieten. Der Mann ist spurlos verschwunden. Ein neuer Thriller mit FBI-Agent Reilly und Archäologin Tess Chaykin — die Fortsetzung von «Scriptum» und «Dogma». «Khoury schreibt große, schnelle Thriller in der Art von Dan Brown, die mehr auf Action und Tempo setzen als auf Charakterzeichnung und Figurenpsychologie. Stilistisch ist er allerdings Brown voraus: Aus seiner kraftvollen Prosa spricht Überzeugung.» (Guardian) «Khourys Roman ist randvoll mit Nonstop-Thrill und genügend Tod, Verderben und Spannung, um jeden Leser zu packen.» (Bookreporter) «Eine Handlung voller Leben und Energie sorgt dafür, dass Khourys Buch an keiner Stelle hinkt oder langweilt. Man könnte einen prachtvollen Film draus machen — bis dahin genießen wir das Buch.» (Kirkus Reviews) «Packend und temporeich — ein perfekter Start ins Thrillerjahr.» (Booklist) «Derzeit versuchen die Verlage wieder, Autoren auf den Dan-Brown-Zug zu schmuggeln. Wie erholsam, dass Raymond Khoury gerade abgesprungen ist von diesem Zug, der ihm Erfolg gebracht hat und ihn gleichzeitig als Thrillerautor von Weltniveau etabliert hat. Es war höchste Zeit, dass Khoury den Mystik-Plunder hinter sich gelassen hat, um in die Riege von Connelly, Child & Co aufzusteigen — das ist ihm mit Bravour gelungen.» (Telegraph)

Christopher Columbus the Last Templar

Author: Ruggero Marino
Publisher: Destiny Books
ISBN: 1594771901
Release Date: 2007-09-11
Genre: History

The untold story of the secret alliance behind the “discovery” of America • Reveals how a utopian dream of brotherhood among Christians, Muslims, and Jews fueled a murderous power struggle involving secret societies, popes, and kings • Explains why King Ferdinand of Spain supported Columbus’s voyages openly, but, secretly, sought to undermine their purpose • Shows how Columbus knew, sailing west, he would find the “New World,” not Asia Was Columbus a Templar? According to the historic documents and maps revealed by Ruggero Marino, Columbus shared their dream of Christians, Muslims, and Jews living in peace in a New Jerusalem, and his voyage across the Atlantic was both to find a new passage to Asia and to find the place where the New Jerusalem could be built. Marino draws parallels between Marco Polo’s journey east over the Silk Route and Columbus’s sea voyages and reveals that Columbus studied ancient texts and maps from the Vatican Library, access to which was granted by Pope Innocent VIII--who Marino shows to be Columbus’s true father. Innocent VIII (whose own father was Jewish and grandmother was Muslim) was the perfect individual to further the Templars’ plan to create a universal religion combining the spiritual wisdom of the three faiths. Marino shows that Innocent’s “disappearance” and the story that Columbus merely stumbled onto the New World were part of a calculated political and theological cover-up. While King Ferdinand (the model for Machiavelli’s The Prince) and Queen Isabella of Spain are heralded with funding Columbus’s “discovery” of America, it was Innocent VIII who was the main sponsor and master-mind of the expedition. To obscure the purpose of the voyages, and give Spain the credit for the New World discovery, Ferdinand and his agent Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia), Pope Innocent VIII’s successor, initiated the disinformation campaign that has lasted for over 500 years.
