The Templar's Relic

*** A USA TODAY Bestseller and #1 Bestselling Action Adventure novel on Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo! ***


A construction accident leads to a stunning discovery—an ancient tomb containing four Templar Knights, long forgotten, on the grounds of the Vatican. Not knowing whom they can trust, the Vatican requests Archaeology Professors James Acton and Laura Palmer examine the find, but what they discover, a precious Islamic relic lost during the Crusades, triggers a series of events that shake the entire world, pitting the two greatest religions against each other.

Join Acton and his friends, including the Delta Force's Bravo Team, as they race against time to defuse a global crisis that could quickly devolve into all-out war, the likes of which the world has never seen.

At risk is nothing less than the Vatican itself, and the rock upon which it was built.

Robert Kennedy comes The Templar's Relic, the fourth entry in the smash hit James Acton Thrillers series, where once again Kennedy takes history and twists it to his own ends, resulting in a heart pounding thrill-ride filled with action, suspense, humor, and heartbreak.

Couldn't put it down!5 star

This was my first Robert Kennedy book, and what a great read. The story line was so intriguing I couldn't put the book down. I have been to the Vatican , so the setting was familiar yet frightening. Great interplay of religions. Apprapo to today's climate. The characters were all new to me. I will have to go back to other Acton stories to get more character background. I wish the stories moral could be shared around the world. Definitely recommend! 55
