About the Author
Henry Lincoln has had a long and distinguished career as author, television presenter, scriptwriter and actor. Most notably, he was co-author of the controversial 1982 New York Times bestseller, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, which introduced most of the world to the shadowy Priory of Sion, the secret society behind the treasure hunt in the French village of Rennes-le-Château and the idea that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene… which was the basis for Dan Brown’s 2003 fictional bestseller, The Da Vinci Code. In the years since Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Lincoln has continued dissecting the real mystery in Key to the Sacred Pattern; as well as The Holy Place and The Templars’ Secret Island (with Erling Haagensen). Lincoln also wrote and narrated the original BBC TV documentaries which, in the 1970s, first made the world outside France aware of this astonishing true-life treasure hunt. In the years before Rennes-le-Château, Lincoln was already known for his Doctor Who serials, written for Patrick Troughton—the second Doctor—in which he also created the popular character, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. Lincoln currently lives near Rennes-le-Château and is working to ensure that his detailed research material, gathered over more than forty years, will be permanently accessible and searchable on the Internet. “Too much rubbish and wishful-thinking has been draped over this mystery,” he says. “It’s time for people to have the courage—and the sense—to confront the truth.”

Lincoln takes us step by step through the mystery as he discovered it ... finishing not with the sensational hypothesis from Holy Blood, Holy Grail, but with an entirely new discovery! Forget the Priory of Sion and the bloodline of Christ, this groundbreaking work could turn history on its head!

Clearly, this is nothing more than the author needing to fulfill a publishing contract with one more book, but lacks the material, and so, he fills it memories, conversations from decades past, instead of stating his case and setting out to prove or disprove it.
