Regency England Knights Templar Treasure Mystery Book Review

Mix Jane Austin, Alfred Hitchcock and a Knights Templar artifact treasure hunt and you have the Regency England mystery suspense adventure novel, a parody of the genre, The Cross of Ramplet by Garnell Thompson.

"It was a dark and stormy night..." starts the first chapter. Cliché, yet true, for on that night, the steeple of the Anglican Church of the Holy Trinity was mysteriously struck by lightning and the roof exploded. Why did this happen, was in an act of God or sabotage? What happened to the Cross of Ramplet - rumored to be a Knights Templar artifact, on display in the church - who took it, and why? What has the Throckmorton family to do with all this?
