Curse of 8th Buddha Novel Reveals 2012 Events and Knights Templar Secrets


An exciting adventure-action novel, Curse of the 8th Buddha, was launched on August 27, 2009. Rick Tobin, owner of High Hope Publishing, at, stated, “This novel brings the reader past the challenges of 2012 to the San Francisco Bay Area and other parts of Northern California in 2013, following the pandemic of 2011 and the major earthquakes that occur during 2012.” Tobin noted that the book is also available at

Tobin stated that the hero of the Curse of the 8th Buddha is Richard Sinclair, a California trouble magnet. The story opens with Sinclair working in the 2013 recovery of a quake-damaged San Francisco. He oversees a Bay Area construction site for the Governor’s Emergency Management Agency. Sinclair’s employers are unaware he is also a new recruit in the Knights Templar Society. His secret assignment is to capture lost Templar treasure uncovered in the rubble. But instead of gold, Sinclair uncovers a primordial psychic minefield: the powers of an ancient civilization that allow him to unlock the darkest secrets of anyone he touches.

Along the perilous path of Templar intrigues he is confronted by his maniacal Templar overseer, by a contrary former lover and by the wiles of his twin soul who now serves the Liliths—relentless primeval enemies of the Templars. The Liliths hunt him for their purposes in a ritual drama that demands his blood. Can Richard Sinclair, plagued with psychological demons and weaknesses, survive challenges of the heart and physical doom as he is manipulated by a treacherous secret society? His journey is interwoven with Templar obsession for gold, deceptions of evil conspiracies and the redeeming power of eternal love after he is shackled by the curse of the 8th Buddha.

Tobin stated that the Curse of the 8th Buddha is the first in a trilogy dealing with a fictional immediate future and the startling events that we will face in our lifetimes.
