I only have a few reasons why anyone should read this and those reasons are as followed: 1. You're a Steve Berry fan or Cotton Malone series fan! 2. It's fast, fun, and typi Leggi tutto
For some reason, this book by Steve Berry did not grab me the way that his other books have. In it Cotton Malone teams with Cassiopeia Vitt and travels from the museums of Europe to the terra cotta soldiers of China to rescue a stolen child. They become embroiled in a power struggle between Ni (a mo Leggi tutto
Steve Berry’s sixth novel in his remarkable Cotton Malone series, THE EMPEROR’S TOMB has tremendous resonance in today’s geopolitical world. For example, Chinese leader XI JinPing recently had his presidency extended for life. Second, is the US, China, and Russian competition for energy resources an Leggi tutto
