Jack Hobbes finally had to admit that all the Conspiracy Theories were right – every damned one of them - when he found himself driving his Mobile Library at speed down narrow roads at dawn, pursued by implacable Frenchmen who were not sure whether the sealed box he had strapped onto the passenger seat contained an electric kettle from Argos, or the preserved head of John the Baptist.
On top of all that, he then had to contend with the real Men in Black and the Trans-Galactics, plus MI5, the CIA, Opus Dei, numerous Freemasons and neo-Templars and various incarnate aspects of the Wild Hunt – who had been hiding for years in a certain little Old Peoples’ Home in rural Wiltshire. And it had all been caused by those two women – Jenny Djinn and Lilith Love – who just happened to be Death Goddesses also, who fell for the same Mobile Librarian in a small English town that was named after trolls…
“A touch of genius, a tsunami of wit and a touching poignancy from an author who knows the esoteric world inside and out. ‘Trowbridge and the Templars’ really sets the tone for this romp through the Medieval and the Modern.”
- Gordon Strong, author of Merlin: Master of Magick, The Sacred Stone Circles of Stanton Drew, Dawn of the Goddess.
