In addition, Berry introduces the reader to Sonny Collins, an American secret service agent whose bosses have questioned his quest to expose financiers who continue to enhance their wealth financing debt, and wars in particular. Circling multiple storylines, this is easily the most fast-paced volume in the series as Berry focuses on the long-lost treasure of Napoleon Bonaparte. I especially loved the fact that each chapter is divided into sections - almost each one of them ending in mini cliffhangers. Malone's night is rudely interrupted by a break-in to his Copenhagen bookshop. In his final days, his British captors hoped to learn where the loot lay hidden. In the current case it seems that after two years Thorvalsen has identified who killed his son, an action that had devastated the Danish aristocrat and for him revenge and the humiliation of the man responsible was foremost in his mind.
It kept me reading for a couple of reasons. This one was a little more believable than the last. Opening with Napoleon on Egypt's Giza Plateau in 1799 Steve Barry again takes us on an exciting, suspenseful, ever surprising journey with former justice department operative Cotton Malone. When Napoleon Bonaparte died in exile in 1821, he took to the grave a powerful secret. But when a controversial report from a war-torn region is exposed as a fraud, his professional reputation crashes and burns.
Former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone isn't looking for trouble when it comes knocking at his Copenhagen bookshop. Executed with his usual swagger and panache? While examining the Pyramids Napoleon decides he must return to Paris because the ruling Directory is not following the revolutionary agenda and has made enemies of most of Europe. Doch was ist wirklich gesund? The second flaw of the book is that there's just too freaking much going on in it. Nice short paragraphs so perfect for a commuter read. His latest assignment had seemed simple enough - to lead the American explorer Hiram Bingham to Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas.
Seriously, the whole hidden treasure thing was a back story. Donec scelerisque, urna id tincidunt ultrices, nisi nisl lacinia mi, at pellentesque enim mi eu felis. One of the many things that makes reading a Berry book so intriguing is his splendid mix of history and mystery. Actually, it breaks and enters in the form of an American Secret Service agent with a pair of assassins on his heels. He is currently at work on his next novel. It seems that two men Amando Cabral and Lord Graham Ashby, men who traded in stolen antiquities were about to be charged in a Mexican court for their activities when the killings took place. I would've rate it 3.
Sometimes it was very difficult to understand what he meant to say. What did you like most about The Paris Vendetta? Wie nimmt man effizient ab? I don't think this is one of his best, but still a good read. The story finds Cotton Malone's bookstore home being broken into by an eager young agent by the name of Sam. As we know Napoleon was, among other things, an excellent thief. Writing style: jumbling contemplative descriptions within passages where the rhythm of the story is much faster. None of us knew it was coming.
But I really enjoyed this book and have every intention of going back and starting the series from the beginning! So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon - and its rider missing - Pine is called in to investigate. I like his writing and can always be assured that it will be a clean read. To say I immensely enjoyed it is an understatement. Passionate about the spoken word, he has narrated a wide variety of audiobooks. Er stürzt von einem Abenteuer in die nächste ungeheuerliche Geschichte, muss gegen Bestien, Mitschüler und Fabelwesen kämpfen. Just a sweet 4 star.
It is a pleasant mix of history and reality, with a focus on the controversial figure of Napoleon as either a great leader or a despot and unfair egocentric man who managed to lead France, based on your own preference or view of the man's career. I love the fact that Malone has a love for books………just like me!!! Excellent novel This is perhaps Berry's best effort in the Cotton Malone series. This book seemed to rely more on character interaction and vendettas and such than adventure. There are baddies and other baddies although one of the baddies could be a goodie and a goodie who pretends to be a baddie. By the time the trip came to an end, Wes was permanently disfigured, and Boyle was dead, the victim of a crazed assassin.
Malone has his doubts about the anxious young man, but narrowly surviving a ferocious firefight convinces him to follow his unexpected new ally. There is a heavy dose of Napoleon history and myth, as well. The book is the fifth installment of the Cotton Malone series. This book reminded me a bit of a Dan Brown novel, in the way that history becomes an integreal part of the story. Writing techniqu I crawled to the end of this book. وثأرُ ثورفالدسن يضع مالون في ورطة لا يحسد عليها- وهي أن يختار بين الصديق والوطن، الماضي والحاضر.
