Has anyone read his last (and as far as I know) only book The Last Templar ?

I read it but I'll wait with my opinion ...

I have only glanced at it because i noticed it was to do with the Crusades and templar knights, whom we have met in Birds of Prey, but i think i am right in saying most of the story is set in the modern day with links to the CIA/FBI and terrorism which stopped me from picking the book up because i wanted something more periodic at the time.
While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.
