been there, read the book, bought the tee-shirt. I only remember the
bare outlines of the book - it was a prequel or sequl to another book, and both
covered, broadly, the areas of the Templars, Cathars, Mary Magdelane, where
the Grail went and so on. It does require careful reading - some sections are
well put together and backed by good footnotes, but what happens is that the
author takes two or three facts which stand ok on their own, dumps them
together and says "obviously, becuase these facts are related..." and leaps
off to the next stage without proving the linkages. In point of fact, many of
the hypotheses are unprovable, becuase the evidence simply no longer exists.
In short, a ripping good yarn, which raises interesting questions, but which
must be read very critically.
