The Knights Templar were the wealthiest, most powerful – and most secretive – of the military orders that flourished in the crusading era. Their story – encompassing as it does the greatest international conflict of the Middle Ages, a network of international finance, a swift rise in wealth and influence followed by a bloody and humiliating fall – has left a comet’s tail of mystery that continues to fascinate and inspire historians, novelists and conspiracy theorists. Dan Jones tells this extraordinary saga of fanaticism, bravery, treachery and betrayal with his customary brio and exuberance, combining sensible scholarship with narrative swagger.  Dan is the bestselling author of Summer of Blood, The Plantagenets,  and Realm Divided, and The Templars will cement his position as our leading medievalist.
