This is a thoroughly entertaining book and is probably best read (as I did it) immediately after the book mentioned above, Gerard de Sede’s Accursed Treasure of Rennes-le-Chateau. It documents the history of Henry Lincoln’s involvement in the mystery at Rennes right from the very beginning (his reading of de Sede’s book) through all his cloak-and-dagger dealings with the Prieure de Sion and culminating with his latest take on what he considers the Treasure of Rennestrue nature of the treasure to be.

The story of his journey includes not only a cast of the usual suspects, many of whom we are already familiar with, but also some complete and utter nutters who have been attracted to the Rennes-le-Chateau mystery by the prospect of buried gold. Lincoln relates his dealings with all of them. It is very interesting to watch his ideas and speculations on what lies behind the mystery evolve from the initial material dream of hidden treasure to the now more spiritual view that sacred geometry is reflected naturally in the very topography of the mountains surrounding Rennes itself.

What the reader has to decide is whether or not Henry Lincoln is now tarred with the Prieure de Sion’s brush. That is, have his dealings with them and their predilection for red herrings and word games, tainted the books that Lincoln now puts out ? How much of what is in this book can be taken at face value ? Are his theories what they seem ? It’s all getting very confusing, but it’s damned good stuff. Oh yes indeed !
