For over a decade Cassiopeia Vitt has been building an authentic French castle, using only materials and techniques from the 13th century. But when a treasure is unearthed at the construction site-an ancient Book of Hours-a multitude of questions are raised, all pointing to an ancient and forgotten religious sect.Once the Cathars existed all across southern France, challenging Rome and attracting the faithful by the tens of thousands. Eventually, in 1208, the Pope declared them heretics and ordered a crusade-the first where Christians killed Christians-and thousands were slaughtered, the Cathars all but exterminated. Now a piece of that past has re-emerged, one that holds the key to the hiding place of the most precious object the Cathars possessed. And when more than one person becomes interested in that secret, in particular a thief and a billionaire, the race is on. From the medieval walled city of Carcassonne, to the crest of mysterious Montségur, to a forgotten cavern beneath the Pyrenees, Cassiopeia is drawn deeper and deeper into a civil war between two people obsessed with revenge and murder.

Well! Two of my favorite authors have teamed together to create a GREAT read! Did you doubt it! I was so excited when I saw that these two were collaborating! And they did not disappoint! This is a Cassiopeia story and it is a good one. Cassiopeia is remodeling a castle…yep a castle. And of course she finds a treasure. A unique treasure. It is an ancient manuscript about the Cathars. The Cathars have been an interest of mine for quite a while. This story really enhanced my fascination of this time period. Not only is this tale well researched, it is action packed. There were several places I was holding my breath! Nothing like a little murder and mayhem to get your blood pumping.

A very poorly written Cotton Malone ripoff. Don't waste your time or dime.
