The novels, Beginnings and The Priest's Secret, are a result of Ben Hammott's research into the Rennes-le-Château Mystery. In his book Lost Tomb of the Knight's Templar, a blend of fact and fiction, his hoaxed discoveries outline a possible scenario of what the priest Saunière may have discovered in his Mary Magdalene church to turn him from a penniless priest into a man of great wealth.

Rumours abound that he may have found the lost Knight's Templar treasure or a secret he used to blackmail the vatican.

Ben weaves his research and discoveries into an exciting archaeological thriller spanning more than 2000 years.
