Gerhard Plenertabout this book: Modern-day Templars, a group of mercenaries who execute paid contracts, are hired by Neo-Nazis to find the Ark of the Covenant, a treasure that the Nazi's have been obsessed with since the Second World War. However, there is a hidden agenda on the part of both organizations as they work together to find the Ark, through a tangled web of global settings and organizations, while being hampered by religious radicals and international executioners. Convinced they've found the Ark, the Templars learn the real intent of the Neo-Nazis is world domination, and they may have just provided them with the weapon they needed. Gerhard Plenert weaves a tale full of suspense and intrigue in Dawn of the New Templars, that uniquely explores historical themes, geographic locations and cultural nuances, as it introduces thought-provoking themes that stretch the mind and leave the reader emotionally involved.
As the author, I have been playing with this idea for years. This book is intended to be the first book in a series and it introduces the concept and main characters, and then jumps right into the action. Most of the places described in this global chase and rat race are real places, many of which I've visited, and the reader will have fun going to Google maps and searching out these locations.
The book is heavily researched and ties to numerous specific historical events which I tried to weave into the book. But I couldn't give too much historical context or the book would become a history book.
The book also hits on some controversial social themes that were fun to discuss from a two-sided perspective.
