Centered on real, recently discovered correspondence between two famous 19th-century
Masonic leaders, Albert Pike and Colonel James Wilson Bury MacLeod Moore, this
modern-day thriller follows Thomas, a direct descendant of Col. Moore, and Janet Rose,
a descendant of one of the original Knights Templar, as they risk their lives to protect
the letters and the Templar and Rosicrucian secrets encoded within them. As Thomas
and Janet discover, everyone—from the Church to the White House to Confederate
sympathizers and the KKK—is after the ancient knowledge contained within the letters,
knowledge that would allow one singular entity to control the world and bring all of the
great religions to their knees.
Pitted against a psychotic and sexually-perverted Jesuit priest, tasked by the Vatican’s
inner circle to retrieve the Pike letters, the couple is aided by two Templar guardians and
a modern-day practicing alchemist, Janet’s grandfather. As Thomas and Janet’s love for
one another grows, the couple transcends to a higher level of understanding, unaware
that they are following the same ancient morals and dogmas found within the 33 degrees
of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, as defined by none other than Albert Pike himself.
Part fact, part fiction, the novel, with its 33 initiatory chapters, provides a rare glimpse
into the inner circles of modern-day Freemasonry, along with revelations of ancient alliances
between Native American groups and the Templars. Set in Georgetown, in the
heart of Washington, D.C., the story ends with a dramatic unveiling of the ultimate New
World secret sought by so many: the location of the last Knights Templar refuge in the
New World, where the lost treasure of the Templars, including sacred knowledge of the
Holy Family—the descendants of Jesus and Mary Magdalene—remains to this day.
