This book has been around a while now and generated the controversies. Whatever you think of it, it is a splendid journey of historical connect-the-dots and an effort with substance! 2 Masons begin a quest into the roots of masonry that continues through other books they wrote.

This book gave a very interesting walk through of the history of Masons and the Templars as well as ritual information not known (at least to me!) before. Helpful read in conjunction with DaVinci Code.
This book was one of those that I classify as a "bathroom" book. You read little by little - it was hard to stay focused when read chapter by chapter as a regular fiction book would be. However, it was still an enjoyable read and I actually re-read it twice.

"A breakthrough book. The last four thousand years are never going to look the same again." Graham Hancock, author "Fingerprints Of The Gods"
"This is an enthralling story, full of ingenious connection. Academic orthodoxies should always be challenged, and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to believe that there are more threads to history than we yet know." Prof. Philip R. Davies, Biblical Studies, University of Sheffield
"A spectacular accomplishment. What better mystery book could anyone find than this - and what is more, it all appears to be true!" Robert Temple, author "The Sirius Mystery"
