The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes . . . until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was–and its true nature could change the modern world. Cotton Malone, onetime top operative for the U.S. Justice Department, is enjoying his quiet new life when an unexpected call to action reawakens his hair-trigger instincts–and plunges him back into the cloak-and-dagger world he thought he’d left behind. It begins with a violent robbery attempt on Cotton’s former supervisor, Stephanie Nelle, who’s far from home on a mission that has nothing to do with national security. Armed with vital clues to a series of centuries-old puzzles scattered across Europe, she means to crack a mystery that has tantalized scholars and fortune hunters through the ages by finding the legendary cache of wealth and forbidden knowledge thought to have been lost forever when the order of the Knights Templar was exterminated in the fourteenth century. But she’s not alone. Competing for the historic prize–and desperate for the crucial information Stephanie possesses–is Raymond de Roquefort, a shadowy zealot with an army of assassins at his command. At the end of a lethal game of conquest, rife with intrigue, treachery, and craven lust for power, lies a shattering discovery that could rock the civilized world–and, in the wrong hands, bring it to its knees.

I bought this on a whim - I've heard some good things about Berry and I have to say, his writing style did not disappoint. And yes, it's entirely fair to say this is, er, "inspired" by Dan Brown.

But I think it goes a little far to call it an outright knockoff. Cotton Malone makes for an intriguing protagonist, and the story moves along within his characterization. By that I mean I don't have to suspend a whole lot of disbelief to accept startling leaps of insight and intuition from the characters.

The story itself is, well, I'm not sure it matters. I mean, the plot for thrillers doesn't have to be documentary-quality. Suffice it to say that facts cited aren't inaccurate, the story itself is plausible and works with its own internal logic, and it's not something that makes me roll my eyes. There are certain sequences in the book that had me turning pages...well, pressing the Next Page button on my Kindle anyway.

In short, it's an enjoyable read...a good overview of history to make it accessible to the interested lay reader, enough facts to keep it interesting for those who know more about the history in question, and Berry does interesting things with it all to turn it into a work of fiction. It's a good book.

A fun read in much the same vain as the Da Vinci Code and an Indiana Jones movie. At the end of the book Berry describes what was fact, what was fiction and what was gray area between the two.

My only quibble is that he sometimes frames what is fairly commonly known Biblical history and tries to make it sound like scholarly knowledge known only to a few. But, then again, he wrote this for mass consumption and most people probably would not know those common facts.

Overall a fun read combining the Knights Templar, a smattering of alternative theology and a spy novel.

Cotton Malone has retired from the Service, but a visit from his ex-boss, Stephanie, almost immediately gets him involved in the action when a thief steals her purse. Malone chases the thief who, when cornered, throws himself off the top of the tower. Stephanie retrieves the stolen purse which contains her late husband's diary filled with notes of his research on the possible reemergence of the Templars and clues to the location of their lost treasure.
Thus begins the convoluted search by several parties (with good or bad intent) to recover the wealth of the Templars. Lots of action, puzzles solved, and just a good romp. Fun to read, if a bit long.

This author puts the story up front, as real feeling as it gets. Your going to love this. Easy read, fast paced, with great characters that almost grab you by the hand and drag you along for the greatest adventure imaginable. If edge of your seat adventure is on your list then beside it will be this book. All the way to the end you are going to be part of each thrill and move the characters make. This author put his all into making this story one of the very best ever written about the Templars. The only one thing I didn't like, characters names. Give everybody simple names, I don't want my mind pronouncing some of these names, it slows me down. So, get your glasses, and don't miss a single word. Enjoy.

This is a great thriller in the tradition of Dan Brown. A clever narrative that interweaves religious history and dramatic fiction. It is a thriller with chases, shootouts, and plot intrigue.

For those who enjoy theorizing alternatives to traditional religious beliefs this will challenge or at least stretch your beliefs.

While I wish there was more character development, I am sure Steve Berry wetted appetites for more stories of Cotton Malone and possibly more characters from the Templar Legacy. I am on my way to reading the Alexandria Link next.

Fascinating story with obvious attention-to-detail research done to provide accurate background. All of that in-depth background - - while often adding credibility to the story line - - tended to slow the story down a bit too much for me. I like mysteries, and unexpected twists and turns, but I like more action mixed in with them than "Legacy" provided. More pace to the story and I would have rated it 5 stars. Even so, I recommend it - - particularly for the detail-oriented reader of historically-themed thrillers.

The story was potentially a good one, but it turned out to be so boring that I had to force myself to finish it. Apparently the author Steve Berry
improves in his later novels. Also the dialog was often inane, especially in Stephanie's case. Hard to believe this book was a best seller.
But the author deserves credit for using the Templar history and I learned a lot by reading this book.
Great novel. So rich and full of detail. I read this book after I read book no. 2. (This is book 1) It didn't matter. What great read.

I mention the order I read the books for the following reason. When I read book 2, I was, impressed that the complicated historical plot lines were repeated at least twice in the book. It wasn't redundant nor obvious just the same information being related by different characters to different characters. It made following the potentially confusing historical parts much easier to understand due to the repetition. I am sure this was intentional by the author to make the history more comprehensible. His efforts are appreciated because it worked seemlessly.

If you are a fan of this genre. You will not be disappointed by books 1 or 2. I'm off to start book 3.
