Death After Midnight, by Dean Fetz, out Feb 1st 2011
The Priory of Sion lives: January 17, 1917 – the infamous priest in the tiny village of Rennes-le-Château, Bérenger Saunière, is found collapsed in the door of his tower. Five days later, he is dead, leaving few clues as to his fabulous wealth and influence. Some say he found Visigoth hoards or Templar Treasure, Cathar artifacts or even more unbelievable, the Holy Grail. All traces died with his housekeeper and she told no one. Over a century later, Commander Jaared Sen is assigned to follow a shady character, known as ‘The Head’, pursuing the treasure of Rennes-le-Château at all costs. What is this mysterious treasure and who are the Priory of Sion? Aided by his mysterious benefactress and a beautiful art historian, Jaared follows the Head to the south of France, into the dark heart of the Languedoc, its soil and history soaked in the blood of crusaders and martyrs.
Hollywood, the Holy Grail, the Great Pyramid and the Mystic Dawn, by Edward Anthony Rayne
A multi-stranded epic international story with many themes.
Among which are the movie business, life extension, financial instability, love, and the 'Cool Britannia' London of the 1990s. And, not least, the mysterious French village of Rennes-le-Chateau, and whatever it may represent.
But, most central of all, is whether an ancient civilization, much more advanced than our own, once existed here on Earth? And, if it did, do its secrets still remain? And, if they do, what might these secrets be?
All very hard to answer.
Against the background of the biggest sex scandal ever to hit Hollywood, and the pending threat of global financial meltdown, a small and very select group of people, funded by the world's richest man, set out on a mission, and make an amazing discovery.
Long, intricate and captivating, every strand falls into place as events edge towards a truly breathtaking climax.

Pentagon Five, Ian Campbell, Aug 2010
Follows on from That Will do Nicely
In 'That Will Do Nicely' the book in which the Main characters of Pascoe, Sam, Jim and Mary Roberts were established, Pascoe and Sam ended up in a remote part of southern France, in the foothills of the Pyrenees. There, they purchased an old, run-down farm and renovated it to create their holiday base for artists. Later, they were joined by ex New Scotland Yard detective, Jim Roberts and his wife Mary. Roberts was the copper who tracked Pascoe and Sam down after their successful fraud.
'Pentagon Five' commences two years later. The Holidays for Artists centre is up and running and they have just finished their first season when their peace is shattered by the dishevelled and sudden appearance of one of their neighbors who has discovered a body on the Celtic Track. Roberts naturally takes charge and investigates and what he discovers, shocks him to the core. The French police classify the death as a suicide which Roberts knows is a lie and, when he discovers that the body is of an English student, he decides to investigate further.
He discovers that the youth was investigating the mysterious village of Rennes-le-Château which lies a few miles away from their farm and all four friends are quickly entangled in the stories associated with the village and the lost treasures which have long been associated with it. They decide to follow in the late youths footsteps, only too unaware of the dangers they might be facing.
'Pentagon Five' draws on the experience of the author who co-wrote one of the seminal non-fictional works on the subject, 'Geneset - Target Earth'. So, although this story is pure fiction, many of the facts and the quoted literature are real.
