When bullets start flying at a Union Square cafe, history professor Ella Chevalier can’t believe they could be aimed at her…despite what the blue-eyed stranger tells her. Ella is stunned that her academic research is catching the interest of more than the PhD crowd – two medieval Orders, remnants of the Crusades, believe she holds the key to finding a mythical treasure – and only one cares whether she lives or dies! Ella can’t believe she’s in danger…but that’s about to change.

From the dusty halls of Columbia University to the Highlands of Scotland and the Charente Maritime region of France, Ella and her loyal companions are on a mission to find the lost treasure of the Templar Knights, with thieves and assassins on their heels every step of the way!
