Hunting down the Templar knights’ treasure

Eric Giacometti, Jacques Ravenne: Le septième templier ISBN: 978-2-266-22902-6 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Once more the French police officer Antoine Marcas embarks on a quest – the legendary Templars’ treasure. Narcas is a Free mason, who many seeas the successor of the Templar knights. The opponent this time is a high-ranking employee of the Vatican, hiring a killer commando, that leaves a blood trail in Paris and Rome. Much is at stake: The Vatican needs money. History seems to repeat itself. In the 14th century, Pope Clement and King Philippe of France persecuted the Templars to lay their hands on the Templars’ wealth. They failed. Will the Vatican succeed this time?
