For nearly as long as there have been human societies, there have been secret societies. And while some are devoted to the performance of good deeds and service, others have taken a decidedly more sinister bent. The one thing they all share is that none want outsiders knowing what goes on in their inner sanctums. Well, that's too bad, because this book blows the whistle on more than 150 of the world's most exclusive secret societies. And you won't have to know the special handshake or stealthily tap out a series of coded knocks to get in the door, either. Instead, author Michael Benson kicks those locked doors right down, exposing underground groups from the Illuminati to the Chinese Triads to the New World Order.
If you liked The Da Vinci Code, you'll love the stranger-than-fiction truths of Inside Secret Societies. But beware of learning too much--you never know who may be watching!
