about

NEW YORK TIMES BESETSELLER“Those who relish suspense in the Da Vinci Code vein will snap this one up, the best yet in the series.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

As a child, former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone was told that his father died in a submarine disaster in the North Atlantic. But what he now learns stuns him: His father’s sub was a secret nuclear vessel lost on a highly classified mission beneath the ice shelves of Antarctica. 

Twin sisters Dorothea Lindauer and Christl Falk are also determined to find out what became of their father, who died on the same submarine–and they know something Malone doesn’t: Inspired by strange clues discovered in Charlemagne’s tomb, the Nazis explored Antarctica before the Americans. Now Malone discovers that cryptic journals penned in “the language of heaven,” conundrums posed by an ancient historian, and his father’s ill-fated voyage are all tied to a revelation of immense consequence for humankind. As Malone embarks on a dangerous quest with the sisters, he will finally confront the shocking truth of his father’s death and the distinct possibility of his own.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Steve Berry’s *The Columbus Affair *and a Cotton Malone dossier.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't quite put my finger on it why....but not as good as the rest of the series. Cotton has always wondered what happened to his father Forrest Malone when he was declared missing by the Navy back in 1971. Now Cotton has received information showing that his father was on a secret mission for the Navy, a mission that could still affect the world if the truth comes out. Soon Cotton is caught up in the middle of another family’s legacy that involves two twin sisters who are looking for the same answers that Cotton is, each for very different reasons. Their father was with Forrest Malone on the sub that went missing they all work together to get to find out what happened. Cotton can’t trust either of these women as they are willing to kill anyone to find the answer before the other sister does. All the clues lead everyone to an ancient culture that may or may not have had an epic effect on the world. Could there have been a culture that was just as advanced as ours that died out? Cotton has seen stranger things, but for the love of this father he will get to the bottom of this. This is the fourth book in the Cotton Malone series. I was a little disappointed as I thought we were going to find out more about Malone during his search of his father, although we now finally know what happened to Forrest Malone. I also found the book to be more about all the other characters and less about Malone. I can’t quite put my finger on why I did not enjoy this one as much as the previous three, but I am hoping that book five will have the series back on track.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Twisting Historical Events Book 4 in the Cotton Malone series Mr Berry is without any doubt a master at twisting historical events. In the past he has created intriguing and intense stories that stimulate the reader’s imagination. The story begins with Cotton Malone being held at gun point; it becomes evident that someone else wants the classified Navy files regarding the disappearance of his father and all crew members of a submarine in mid Atlantic. Cotton realizes there must be more behind this incident, there are more questions than answers, and he needs to know the truth. The main plot is the interesting and captivating part of the novel. True to his style, Steve Berry propels his protagonist in a deadly pursuit, a quest where revelations will be as shocking as they are unexpected…..As the story moves along, sub-plots kick in. They are a series of choppy events that are abnormal, absurd and implausible and did not appear to connect to the main plot. The story in whole moved at a fast pace and provided: intrigue, conspiracy, treachery and lots of violence. My mind tended to wander with the sub-plots; they were a distraction and did not enhance the story, I found this to be disappointing and not at par with his previous novels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring Boring Boring This book put me to sleep. I am at page 200 and find it extremely boring to the point I am ready to chuck it in file 13 where it belongs. This book may well be a Best Seller but it sure as blazes is not a best reader. Save your money. Finally finished the book. What a waste of time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the Best I have to agree with some of the previous reviewers, this is not his best book. It seemed like two different books were woven together by a very thin thread. This book is about Cotton finding out about the truth of his Father's death yet he seems to play a minor role in the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Berry Thriller! Another installment in the exciting life of Cotton Malone as he searches for his father's last resting place amid a long lost civilization in Antartica. A good quick read as we venture within the world of Charlemagne, the US Navy and the prospect of a mysterious civilization. The only disturbing thing is that Cotton Malone, the main hero, character is overshadowed by secondary figures in the story. Still, good stuff!
