Groton, Mass. (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
Martin and Lawrence Press announces the forthcoming release of Cabal of the Westford Knight: Templars at the Newport Tower by Boston Globe best-selling author David S. Brody. Cabal of the Westford Knight will be available wherever fine books are sold on February 1, 2009.
Brody, a practicing real estate attorney who currently serves as Director at Large of the New England Antiquities Research Association (NEARA), says he had long known the legend of the Westford Knight, Scottish explorers who visited Westford in 1398 and carved an effigy in stone in Westford to commemorate the death of a fallen comrade. According to Brody, "When I began work on the project, I hardly expected that I would become a believer of the Westford Knight legend, but as I journeyed around New England, visiting related sites and inspecting related artifacts, the lawyer in me became increasingly convinced that the sheer volume and weight of evidence supporting the legend of 14th-century European exploration could not be ignored."
But if Christopher Columbus was a 100 years late to the party, then who was here, and why had they come? That's where Cabal of the Westford Knight begins.
In Cabal of the Westford Knight (Martin & Lawrence Press, ISBN: 978-0-9773898-7-1, $14.95) a modern-day protagonist takes readers on a tour of 600-year-old sites and artifacts throughout New England, binding together stone towers and ancient inscriptions in a whopper of a plot that uncovers the true secrets of the Knights Templar and the Jesus bloodline.
The artifacts and sites, all real and all illustrated in Cabal of the Westford Knight, provide compelling evidence that the heirs to the Jesus bloodline--custodians of both the Templar treasures and their secrets--sought refuge in North America. In the New World, these heirs hoped to establish a New Jerusalem based on ancient pagan values and beliefs, in direct opposition to the Catholic Church.
Templars in America. Secret societies. Buried treasures. The Jesus bloodline. Pagans infiltrating the Catholic Church. Cabal of the Westford Knight has it all. A feast for history buffs and those who love a literary rollercoaster, Cabal of the Westford Knight is a groundbreaking novel of suspense that will captivate readers--and force historians to rewrite American History.
