My first experience with the writings of Steve Berry was a happy accident. I downloaded ‘The Templar Legacy’ by accident and read it because I had paid for it. However based on that book reading his second in the Cotton Malone series was deliberate and turned out to be another excellent read.
Malone’s teenage son is kidnapped and the kidnappers demands are somewhat on the unusual side. They want details on a case that Malone worked on five years previously when he was with the US Justice Department. Those details are only known to Malone and a select few in the United States. Somewhere in the top levels of the American government there is a traitor.
Throw in a European Secret Society, disputed sections of the Old Testament and the missing ancient library of Alexandria and you have a fast-paced plot that literally takes you around the world at breakneck speed.
I particularly like how Berry integrates into the storyline ongoing academic religious debate concerning the Old Testament. He raises questions which whilst not based on academic fact certainly made this reader wonder “what if”?
Great book well worth a read.
The humour throughout was great.
