The Testament

Front Cover
Macmillan, Jul 31, 2007 - Fiction - 480 pages

The hit international thriller from Eric Van Lustbader, the New York Times bestselling author of The Bourne Legacy

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.
