Italy, 1351. English companions, knight Gerard Fox and the resourceful Willa, have come through a death-defying journey across war-torn Europe. Now looking towards a future together, they must first find a way to reconcile with their difficult pasts.

In a small village between Florence and Siena, Fox and Willa are caught up in a deadly ambush. After rescuing Luciana, the target of the attack, they take refuge in her opulent villa and learn her heartbreaking story – a tale of loss, deception, and a burning desire for freedom.

Soon, Fox and Willa are involved in a perilous quest to save Luciana's family legacy. To do so, they will have to solve a mystery that points the way to the fabled lost treasure of the Knights Templar.

“The Morrisons once again delve into the fourteenth century, this time to create a riveting take on the deep mysteries and intrigue surrounding the Templars. The Last True Templar is both a rich historical mystery and a twisty thriller set across the landscape of early Renaissance Italy. The Morrisons bring this world into exciting and vivid life with all its machinations, murders, and maliciousness. Any lover of historical mysteries or great tales of adventure will find much delight in this novel-as I did!” —James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestseller of The Kingdom of Bones

“'A stellar sequel to The Lawless Land... To succeed in their quest, Gerard and Willa must overcome betrayal, villainy, and deception while keeping the truth of their heritage secret. The Middle Ages comes to glorious life mixed with a plot from a Clive Cussler novel. The Last True Templar is adventure at its finest, and the pacing never slows down for a second. The story reads like the authors somehow have a time machine and are merely transcribing actual events. Readers will be anxious for the next book in the series, and hopefully a big-screen adaptation is not far behind.”” —Jeff Ayers, First Clue Reviews

The Last True Templar establishes the Morrisons as masters of rip-roaring, rollicking adventure-a triumphant follow-up to The Lawless Land that's even more exciting, with a puzzle that will dazzle fans of The Da Vinci Code. There's so much breathtaking excitement that the book should come with an oxygen tank.” —Lee Goldberg, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Malibu Burning

“Carefully crafted and original... The Last True Templar is a fun and riveting read from first page to last.... Unreservedly recommended” —Midwest Book Review

“Together Boyd and Beth Morrison have created a mesmerizing sequel to their first venture into sibling authorship, the hugely entertaining The Lawless Land. Book two, The Last True Templar, takes the reader on an adventure through medieval Italy where the excommunicated knight Gerard Fox and his ever-resourceful lady Willa come to the aid of a noblewoman set upon by robbers. Thus begins their search for a vast treasure reputed to have belonged to the Knights Templar. To find it, they must decipher clues that take them throughout Italy and ultimately to a Mediterranean island fortress. The writers' ability to convey a sense of place is remarkable, their research shines without announcing itself as research, and the resulting experience allows the reader to feel that she is in the hands of experts. There is action galore, complicated relationships between men and women, lies, deceit, double-dealing, sword fights, arrow shooting, fires, explosions, feisty indefatigable women, honorable men, dishonorable crooks...and on and on. All this and Italy too. What a ride!” —Elizabeth George, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Something to Hide
