The Templar Salvation
Author - Raymond Khoury (http://www.raymondkhoury.com/home/)
Book description  from author's website -

Constantinople, 1203: As the rapacious armies of the Fourth Crusade lay siege to the city, a secretive band of Templars infiltrate the imperial library. Their target: a cache of documents that must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the Doge of Venice. They escape with three heavy chests, filled with explosive secrets that these men will not live long enough to learn.

Vatican City, present day: FBI agent Sean Reilly infiltrates the Pope’s massive Vatican Secret Archives of the Inquisition. No one but the Pope’s trusted secondi get in—but Reilly has earned the Vatican’s trust, a trust he now has no choice but to violate. A vicious, uncompromising terrorist bent on revenge has kidnapped Tess Chaykin, and the key to her freedom lies in this underground crypt, in the form of a document unread for generations. It is known as the Fondo Templari, a secret history of the infamous Templars that may reveal the explosive secret behind their centuries-old extermination—and in the process illuminate a lost corner of history and its colossal 21st century implications.

With his trademark blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and incendiary historical research, Raymond Khoury’s The Templar Salvation marks a triumphant return to the rich territory that launched his bestselling career.
