The Last Templar

By Raymond Khoury

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

A secret lost for a thousand years. A deadly race to keep it buried...

A secret lost for a thousand years. A deadly race to keep it buried...

1291 AD, Acre. As the city burns under the onslaught of the Sultan's men, the Falcon Temple sets sail, carrying a small band of knights and a mysterious chest entrusted to them by the Order's Grand Master. But the ship vanishes without a trace...

Present day New York. At the Metropolitan Museum, four horsemen dressed as Knights Templar storm the gala opening of an exhibition of Vatican treasures and, in a brutal and bloody attack, steal an arcane medieval decoder.

For FBI agent Sean Reilly and archaeologist Tess Chaykin this is just the start of a deadly game of cat and mouse as they race across three continents in search of the ruthless killers - and a centuries-old mystery...

White Fur

Jardine Libaire
Authors:
Jardine Libaire

'A love story of equal parts grit and glamour' Vanessa Diffenbaugh, author of The Language of FlowersFor Elise and Jamey, real love is not all hearts and flowers. It's gritty, transgressive, and infuriating. Jamey belongs to New York's elegant, ferocious elite, and feels 'owned' by his privileged background; Elise is from a mixed-race family and is uncensored, brave, idiosyncratic. They meet by chance and the bond is instant, but the situation quickly spins out of control. Set against the technicolour landscape of mid-80s New York, White Fur is a tale of money, class, sex and family; it questions what we will do to be free, and what it means to love like we might die tomorrow. 'Brilliantly written and deeply felt' Philipp Meyer, author of The Son '[The] poet laureate of late nights and young love' Ada Calhoun, author of St Marks is Dead
