assassination of the Pope by a sniper on Christmas Day sets off a massive
investigation that stretches across the globe. But behind the veil of Rex
Deus - the Templar cabal that silently wields power in the twenty-first
century - the plot has only just begun. The cabal has a position of
ultimate control in its sights - and its head, Kate Sinclair, is never
going to yield her one great ambition for her US senator son, Richard
Pierce Sinclair. When ex-Army Ranger John Holliday uncovers the true motive behind the Pontiff's murder, he must unlock the secrets of a modern Templar conspiracy - and unravel Kate Sinclair's deadly design.
