The "Templars in America" Book Series by David S. Brody

The Templars in America Book Series by David S. Brody


     The "Templars in America" book series by David S. Brody is one of the most enjoyable projects I've discovered in recent years. After visiting Newport, Rhode Island I was looking for material related to the mysterious Newport Tower and stumbled upon the first book in Brody's ongoing series, Cabal of the Westford Knight: Templars at the Newport Tower. I greatly enjoyed it's energy and intrigue, so much so that I bought the other five books in the series in quick succession. I read through them all at a measured pace and developed a respect for David S. Brody's unique niche of history thrillers. Each book is inspired by Brody's research into the idea of Pre-Columbian exploration of America in the distant past (including the Knights Templar, Celtic Druids, the Phoenicians and others). Each story has a degree of Masonic influence and involvement as well. Some concepts and themes are more far fetched than others, but it is fiction after all. It's a fascinating subject all-around, and Brody manages to take the artifacts related to his research and weave a taught thriller around them. It is indeed a running series, with the same researcher couple (Cameron Thorne and Amanda Spencer-Gunn) appearing as the protagonists in each installment, but each volume could really be read as a stand alone book.

     I've heard David S. Brody mention that he recently finished writing the seventh book in the series and that it will be released later this year.


In order the books are:

1) Cabal of the Westford Knight: Templars at the Newport Tower
2) Thief on the Cross: Templar Secrets in America
3) Powdered Gold: Templars and the American Ark of the Covenant
4) The Oath of Nimrod: Giants, MK-Ultra and the Smithsonian Coverup
5) The Isaac Question: Templars and the Secret of the Old Testament
6) Echoes of Atlantis: Crones, Templars and the Lost Continent
