Era un semplice favore ai suoi ex colleghi del dipartimento di Giustizia: di ritorno a Copenaghen con il figlio Gary, Cotton Malone avrebbe fatto scalo in Inghilterra per consegnare alle autorità Ian Dunne, un ragazzino inglese scappato in America. All’aeroporto di Heathrow, però, i tre si trovano coinvolti in una sparatoria: Ian fugge, mentre Gary viene portato via da un gruppo di uomini. Ma non è lui il vero obiettivo dei rapitori, che propongono uno scambio: la vita di Gary per Ian Dunne. Pronto a tutto pur di salvare il figlio, Cotton si mette sulle tracce di Ian, e, ben presto, si rende conto che quel ragazzo è la chiave per scoprire un segreto sconvolgente, che risale all’epoca dei Tudor e che potrebbe rivoluzionare gli equilibri geopolitici mondiali...

Poor Cotton Malone. He can't seem to make a simple trip from one continent to another without getting caught in a tangle of international intrigue. It's a gift, he says. He's a trouble magnet, says I. In this installment, Steve Berry takes us on a whirlwind tour of London's landmarks with the purpos Leggi tutto
Berry returns with his newest Cotton Malone installment, sure to impress those with an interest in British history. While transporting a young escapee back to London (a side mission organised by the Magellan Group) before taking his son with him to Denmark, Malone is put in the middle of an internat Leggi tutto
Must say, I am astonished at all the good reviews this book has earned. I struggled to the end just in case it got better, but it really wasn't worth the effort. Firstly, the book is in serious need of an editor, there are spelling mistakes, incorrect uses of words (since when did 'apt' mean being g Leggi tutto
I figured it's close enough to publication date that I can go ahead and post this. Everyone else has! I received (with immature, unadulterated, dance-around-my-living-room delight) an advanced copy from Netgalley for review. The mere mention of King Henry VIII sends historians and lovers of Tudor fict Leggi tutto
Dan Brown a starnit o moda. Undeva pe la mijlocul anilor 2000 a aparut un nou gen de autori - cei care combina faptele istorice (spun combina, desi adevarul este ca le rastalmacesc) pentru a crea un thriller istoric bazat pe teorii ale conspiratiei. Din genul acesta de autori - ca orice moda, a pali Leggi tutto
I know that Dan Brown gets all of the attention, but Steve Berry is definitely the better writer in this genre. Since Angels and Demons, Brown has been on a downward spiral with his books while Berry keeps getting better and better. This is probably the most well researched and plausible of all his
I was so disappointed by this book. I have read and enjoyed most of Steve Berry's other books, including the first 6 Cotton Malone books and was looking forward to reading The King's Deception. I found this book hard to get into and only the thought of finding out about Queen Elizabeth I and the hoa Leggi tutto
5 stars! I had forgot how much I enjoy these sort of books! I hadn't read this genre for ages but now reading it, I don't see why I had stopped, I loved it! The mix of history, thriller and adventure is great and Steve Berry writes it so well. Without giving spoilers away, the ideas and theories abo Leggi tutto
Full review on my blog:- http://www.milorambles.com/2013/05/27... A couple of years ago I read my first Steve Berry book – The Emperor’s Tomb – and was immediately caught up in Berry’s writing, his style and the adventure that ensued. I really enjoyed that book and couldn’t wait for the next adventur Leggi tutto
