Another book by this author with lots of action and strong characters. I like the incorporation of historical facts and the information about the Smithsonian.

Very good new installment of the Cotton Malone series. I enjoy historical fiction and Steve Berry's Cotton Malone character and novels are generally quite interesting. However, Berry can get a bit "wordy".

This is the first Cotton Malone title I have read. A fascinating read based around the founding of the Smithsonian Institute and the American Civil War. The highly complicated interwoven story line in the present day has a raft of characters on a treasure hunt with subtly coded clues and a trail of corpses. It would adapt well to film or the small screen.

Another fun read from Steve Berry with the bonus of learning about some little-known aspect of history! Love his books!

More politics and manipulation. I couldn't get past the first few chapters. No thank you.

I'm a big Berry fan and have never been disappointed with his books. This one ranks with his best as it somewhat mirrors todays Federal government. Read the poem on page 407 and think about it.
What if....states rights.

Steve Berry always serves up a great novel. This thriller is no different. Super blend of historical fact and fiction with both familiar and new characters. One thing I like about Berry is he always has a precise description after the end of the book of what was fact and what was fiction (other than the obvious) - and in this case there was even more fact than I was anticipating. So if you like a modern thriller that reaches back to the immediate post-Civil War period regarding the loss of the Confederate archives and treasury and also accounts for some very interesting history of the Smithsonian Museum (particularly the "Castle"), you will like this one. And as a bonus, there are many interesting (real) ideas from way back then that reflect on issues we face with the US Congress and its rule-making ability and gridlock that many are talking about today.
