Il figlio di Cotton Malone è stato rapito, e come riscatto all'ex agente del dipartimento di Giustizia americano viene chiesto nientemeno che il «Rapporto Alexandria». I rapitori vogliono infatti ritrovare lo studioso palestinese che sostiene che la Biblioteca di Alessandria esiste ancora e conserva la versione originale ebraica della Bibbia, molto diversa da quella tramandata. Così, mentre una rete d'inganni, omicidi e agguati si stringe intorno a lui, Malone segue una catena d'indizi che lo porterà fino al deserto del Sinai...

Reading this book I felt a ton of conflicting thoughts and emotions. There were many things I really enjoyed about it, but there was also one large issue that really roiled my blood and is preventing me from giving this book anything higher than 2 stars. Let me first discuss what I liked. This story Leggi tutto
I had not previously read anything by this author but got this from Book Club, and it’s been sitting on the shelf for a while. This is the second book in a long-running series about retired American super-agent Cotton Malone, who now runs a second hand bookshop in Copenhagen, but gets drawn into hig Leggi tutto
Read my full review at Tales Between the Pages I'm starting to think that Steve Berry is a megalomaniac. The more of his books that I read, the more I see his fascination with power and self-importance. I keep reading him because I expect his stories to get better. I like Cotton Malone, I really do.

The Alexandria Link is the 2nd book in the Cotton Malone series. After uncovering The Templar Legacy , Cotton - along with his friends Henrik and Stephanie, as well as his ex-wife Pam and son Gary – is on the hunt for the lost Library of Alexandria. Of course, what search for something of such histor Leggi tutto
Clearly I'm a sucker for anything involving libraries and books. Not quite as engaging as the previous book, but this feels like it's going to be a middle-of-the-road or guilty pleasure kind of series (which I'm fine with, as long as I remember not to take anything too seriously). A few issues with
"Words are indeed the true weapons of mass destruction" ---The Alexandra Link--- I picked this book up mainly for my fascination with the Library of Alexandria. Unfortunately the novel didn't really spend that much on the Library itself. Rather, it was more of a follow-the-clues type of treasure
4.5 Stars. This is a cracking good read. A good mixture of code breaking, a hunt for the Library of Alexandria, historical backdrop of the Old Testament and Middle East rivalries, as well as good interaction of the characters. If anything I think I enjoyed this more than the first one in the series. Leggi tutto
Okay, another Steve Berry book that gives mixed signals. Just like the Dan Brown stuff, he tries to discredit everything you think that you know about religion. In this one, he has St. Jerome intentionally manipulating the Old and New Testaments. He also has the Old Testament lands actually in Asia

This is the second book in the Cotton Malone Series by Steve Berry. I have to say I enjoyed this book as much as the first. It was lovely returning to read all about charcters I'd read about in the first book. This is why I like series of books. I love to get to know the characters. Cotton Malone is Leggi tutto
