What begins as a routine investigation rapidly turns out to be anything but... orced into an uneasy alliance with a hard-drinking Jerusalem detective and a campaigning Palestinian journalist, Khalifa enters a murky, murderous world of greed, duplicity, intrigue and revenge as he goes in search of an elusive 2000 year-old mystery with the power, if it fell into the wrong hands, to plunge the Middle East into all-out war... panning the millennia from ancient Jerusalem and the Crusades to the Holocaust and the modern-day no-man's landof the Gaza strip, from Cathar heretics to coded medieval manuscripts and long-lost Nazi treasure The Last Secret of the Temple is a thrilling, rollercoaster adventure.
