The Templar’s Code is a well written suspense novel, similar in vein to Dan Brown or Steve Berry. Caedmon Aisquith is our determined protagonist on the hunt for the Emerald tablet, an artefact that could kill off the entire population of the world. He and girlfriend Edie Miller traipse across the East Coast of the US and London following the clues left behind by Benjamin Franklin and several founders of the USA. Conspiracy theories, murder, arson, car chases and more make this book hard to put down.
This is the second in a series of 4 books which I didn’t know when I picked it up. However, I had no trouble following the story line; it could easily be read as a standalone. My only issue was how naive Caedmon was about the danger they were in, as a former agent of MI5 I just expected a little more common sense. It didn’t deter me from reading on and I easily finished it in a few days. Recommended for anyone who enjoys a good thriller.
