SYNOPSIS: “Canadian historian Abigail Leclaire’s discovery of an enigmatic medieval poem leads to a menacing visit from a branch of America’s Homeland Security. But how can there be a connection between medieval religious fanatics the Assassins of Alamut and present day terrorism? Determined to find out, Abigail embarks on a reckless trip across Middle Eastern lands in the company of a charismatic Syrian professor, little realising the danger she is stirring.
Meanwhile, in the 12th century, a Syrian doctor of rare genius is obsessed with understanding the nature of the deadly plague known today as the Black Death, the ‘seeds’ of which he risks his life to discover amid tribal warfare deep in the forests of Ethiopia…
Part techno-thriller, part historical fiction, part Da Vinci Code, and all masterful storytelling, Assassins’ Legacy never lets up.”
