I have been reading The Dark Monk. It takes you through old work Bavaria on a mystery mission to find the Templar's treasure. Although the story centers around the church it is not a religious book. It is full of drama, fighting, attempted murder and the Hangman and his courageous daughter. I have really enjoyed this story. Too bad I didn't read The Hangman's Daughter first (a tale that is equally as good). I would recommend this book to everyone.
