For centuries, a hidden splinter sect of the Franciscans has guarded secrets that could transform the world. Now the safety of those secrets--and much more--depends on one man.

Braverman "Bravo" Shaw always knew his father had secrets. But not until Dexter Shaw dies mysteriously does Bravo discover the enormity of his father's life as a high-ranking member of the Order of Gnostic Observatines. For more than eight hundred years, the Order has preserved an ancient cache of documents that could shake Christianity to its foundations.

But the rival Knights of St. Clement will stop at nothing to obtain the treasure, and now Bravo is a target and a pawn in an ongoing war far larger and more deadly than any he could have imagined.

From New York City to Washington, D.C., to Paris, to Venice, and beyond, the race is on for the quintessential prize...the Testament.

Review quote

"Eric Van Lustbader proves again that he is the master of the smart thriller. In "The Testament", Lustbader takes on the oldest, newest, and biggest issue the world faces today--religious extremism--and he does it with skill, insight, and energy. A terrific read, well written, well researched, and well worth your time."--Nelson DeMille, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "Wild Fire" "Like Robert Ludlum, Lustbader is at his best when he is created a twisted web of intrigue, violence, double cross, and his own brand of oriental esotericism. . . . He proves himself a master storyteller."--"Publishers Weekly "on "The Testament" ""The Testament" is a riveting tale of secret sects, religious miracles, and medieval history that blends seamlessly with today's political issues. Paced like the wind, intelligent, and engrossing--"The Testament" is Eric Van Lustbader at the very top of his game."--Steve Berry, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "The Templar Legacy" "One of the great thriller authors--the writer who gave us "The Ninja"--returns with a lightning-paced novel that reinvents the genre. His many fans will rejoice to see that Lustbader is back and at the top of his form."--Joseph Finder, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "Killer Instinct" on "The Testament" "Sensational . . . ancient intrigue and modern action prove that the future of the thriller lies in the past."--Lee Child, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "The Hard Way" on "The Testament"
