Summary The Devil's ElixirFast paced thriller A maniacal Mexican drug lord is the centerpiece of the story Early into the book we get a big revelation about Agent Reilly The inerplay between Tess and Reilly is nice some loose ends in Reilly s story are left for later Forget intelligent design This was perverse sadistic design I read this third Templar novel from Raymond Khoury on the back of the first two excellent outings The Last Templar and The Templar Salvation However I must admit to feeling a little disappointed with this third caper for resourceful but troubled FBI agent Sean Reilly and his partner the attractive and tenacious archaeologist cum novelist Tess Chaykin Although badged as a third Templar novel because of the two leading characters this novel doesn t
its roots in anything to do with the Templar Instead this story is concerned with the Mexican drug trade and in particular with the obsession of a suitably ruthless and sadistic drug boss Raoul Navarro aka El Brujo The Shaman to find the ingredients to a hallucinogenic drug First ncovered by an 18th Century Jesuit priest and then lost for good following Reilly s execution of Navarro s resident chemistry wiz who had found it again some five years earlier during a daring raid in Mexico the medicina is wanted by Navarro so he can profit from a predicted explosion in its se when its effect on the mind becomes known Indeed the five year gap before El Brujo resurfaces and the reason is one of the intriguing threads to this taleIt opens promisingly enough in the Mexico of 1741 one of the things I liked about the two previous Templar novels was the switching back and forth from the middle ages to the present day but apart from this opening chapter time slips never happen again throughout the book and the exploits of two Jesuit priests one of whom comes across a tribe of indians #who possess a drug that provides such a high that on #possess a drug that provides such a high that on it he abandons his ministry and disappears despite the best efforts of his colleague to find himFast forward to the modern day and the plot embroils Reilly and so by association Tess when Navarro for some reason tries and fails to kidnap an old girlfriend from when Reilly was working with the DEA she naturally calls on Reilly for help A big reveal is given when.

THE LAST TEMPLAR THE LAST TEMPLARLast Templar The Last Templar the three books that followed it have been translated into dozens of languages and have charted in scores of countries If any bestselling novelist could rest on his stylistic laurels and adhere to formula it s Khoury Kudos to him for choosing instead to present something a little different in his latest release For the legions of ardent fans of Reilly and Tess there are no worries because the engaging duo are back in The Devil s Elixir However in this breakneck thriller the whirlwind plot excepting the prologue nfolds entirely in the present day as opposed to interweaving with a historical adventure as in Khoury s previous works And while Khoury s prose gets better and engaging with every book with this release admirably continuing that trend for the first time in any of his novels Khoury elected to write a large part of the book in Reilly s first person narrative Given his prior triumphs Khoury certainly didn t have to craft the book that way That he did speaks well for him spreading his wings as a writer and also enhances the immediacy and impact of the story for readers Yet while exploring narrative techniues More Than a Convenient Bride (Texas Cattlemans Club: After the Storm unprecedented in his earlier books Khoury still delivers what his fans have rightfully come to expect a gripping plot with astonishing twists consistently alluring protagonists and a really nasty villain who earns his menacing epithet El Brujo The Sorcerer many times over during the novel s courseThis is Khoury s best book to date It will please his steadfast fans and it will gain him many new one.
