IN AN AGE BEFORE DETECTIVES, ONE TEMPLAR KNIGHT IS CALLED UPON TO DELIVER JUSTICE
When wounded Templar Knight Sir Marcus de Rancourt receives word that his sister is dying, he returns to a home he hasn’t seen in twenty years, only to find his sister dead, and her children orphaned. Sir Marcus decides to take on the greatest challenge of his life and remain behind to raise the children, his loyal sergeant and squires insisting on joining him to work the land by his side.
But before they can settle into their new lives as farmers rather than soldiers, they are thrust into the middle of a conspiracy that could rock the very foundations of the Templars and the Roman Catholic Church.
And it all starts with a simple murder, witnessed by a little boy, who swears Templars killed his parents.
Now it is up to Sir Marcus and his men to determine who committed the gruesome murders, and clear the good name of the Templars, before the very balance of power in the region shifts in favor of someone who should never possess it.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
An established master of the pace-driven thriller, J. Robert Kennedy brings that same edge to his series of historical novels focused on the holy warriors of the medieval Roman Catholic Church. This opening book introduces a thoughtful hero in Sir Marcus de Rancourt, a Templar Knight who’s left to raise his sister’s orphaned children before being drawn into allegations that threaten the entire order. Though the story starts at the close of the 13th century, Kennedy adopts a contemporary approach to dialogue, handling twisty threads of murder and political intrigue in short, sharp chapters. The book is brimming with accurate period details, but they never distract from the urgent human struggles at its centre.
