FBI agent Sean Reilly and his girlfriend, archaeologist Tess Chaykin, heroes of Raymond Khoury's bestselling Templar novels, return in another edge-of-your-seat thriller that reaches from present day back to 1700s Mexico-and possibly beyond. What if there was a drug, previously lost to history in the jungles of Central America, capable of inducing an experience so momentous-and so unsettling-that it might shake the very foundations of Western civilization? What if powerful forces on both sides of the law got wind of that drug and launched a vicious, uncompromising pursuit to possess it? In Raymond Khoury's million-copy-selling Templar novels, Reilly and Tess traveled the globe to unravel ancient mysteries with present-day ramifications. In The Devil's Elixir, they find themselves dragged into a race-against the clock, against a brutal drug kingpin known as "El Brujo"-the sorcerer-and even against government authorities-to merge two divergent trails, one several hundred years old, the other as current as a heartbeat, that could drag humanity to the brink of self-destruction. Packed with the nonstop suspense and unexpected twists Raymond Khoury fans delight in, The Devil's Elixir is destined for bestseller lists everywhere.

"Drug cartel overlord El Brujo, The Sorcerer, will stop at nothing to get what he wants, and FBI Agent Sean Reilly stands in his way as a secret shared past reveals itself. Richard Ferrone's portrayals of main characters Reilly and Tess Chaykin are intense, and his masterful narration maintains the suspense at a fevered pace as the two suddenly find themselves both hunter and hunted. The delivery of the many action scenes will have the listener flinching and ducking to avoid punches. The powerful narcotic that is the "devil's elixir" may be the focal point of the story, but Ferrone makes the listener understand that the true drug of this novel is adrenaline. F.T.
