Book Description

In this original eBook novella by the New York Times bestselling author of The King’s Deception, globetrotting intelligence agent Cotton Malone is lured into dangerous intrigue surrounding the world’s most famous royals—and uncovers a murderous conspiracy of terrorists and traitors, all born from an ancient tale of Saxon history.
 
“In Malone, [Steve] Berry has created a classic, complex hero.”—USA Today
 
In England to participate in the trial of suspected international terrorists, Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is mysteriously summoned to an audience with the Queen of England. A cryptic call has warned of looming danger to the ailing queen’s son and grandson—the next two heirs in line for the throne. And when the source of that ominous information, a notorious tabloid publisher, dies mysteriously, the royal family has reason to fear a genuine conspiracy. But they also suspect that the enemy lies within—and no one at Buckingham Palace, or even the nation’s own Secret Intelligence Service, can be trusted. Now it’s up to Malone to discover the truth. Matching wits with a power-mad politician and a vicious royal blue blood, he must race against time through the streets of London to the forbidden reaches of Iceland, all to stop a monstrous plot to seize the monarchy—one that stretches back to the time of Arthur.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a novella rather than a full novel. It introduces Cotton Malone at a time before his other books. The book was good, but not Berry's best. It was hard to get past some of the revisions to English history. If i had not already read some other Cotton Malone stories, I don't think this would have convinced me to try the others. Thre was not a lot of character development.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Tudor (?) Plot May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read and enjoyed several of Steve Berry's Cotton Malone novels. All were well written with a good plot and great characters.

This book has only two things going for it--editing and proof-reading. The spelling, grammar, and punctuation are fairly good. Other than that, the plot stinks, and the characters are totally unrealistic. Even Cotton Malone does not measure up to expected standards. Bottom line--PASS on this one. I wish I had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Adventure! May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Steve never fails to deliver and his deviations from history, like his research into history are taut and truly humming with deviousness. The man has a mind of a master plotter. Machiavellian in depth and scope.

Bravo Mr. Berry, you have come through once again and delighted me with the historical twists.

Too many plots for a novella, a little silly-- a real disappointment. The feel of an abandoned first draft. Sorry

1.0 out of 5 stars Victoria II??????? May 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high expectations for this, but I was put off immediately by Victoria II....????? I get the made up Presidents, but the made up Royals was a joke. I wish I could get my $2.99 back too. That will teach me to always get the sample first.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth reading May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
(caution Spoiler alerts within)

I had been looking forward to reading this since I first learned about it in anticipation of his new upcoming book. however there is no real story. The story is not cohesive and does not flow from one scene to the next. Also, completely inventing a NEW royal family ruined the story. In every fiction novel, the reader must "suspend" his/her belief" to enter into the story. but by giving Great Britain a fictional Royal family goes too far.

1.0 out of 5 stars interesting plot idea; but very bad writing! August 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book to see if I would be interested in reading other books by this author. I won't be doing that. This has an intriguing plot idea; but the plot execution is contrived and forced. The writing is awful. The characters are very badly disguised versions of their real counterparts. We have the King Arthur legend mixed in with treason. I'm not totally sure what the Tudors have to do with this story. I'm also not sure if international espionage really works the way it's portrayed in this story. Oh, well - it's a good thing this was only a few dollars - lesson learned!

2.0 out of 5 stars Contrived June 14, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Implausible and contrived. I've liked the other Cotton Malone books but Berry's editor should have bounced this half-baked effort. I slogged though it just to be done.

His books have been translated into 40 languages with 19,000,000 copies in 51 countries.

History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel. It's his passion, one he shares with his wife, Elizabeth, which led them to create History Matters, a foundation dedicated to historic preservation. Since 2009 Steve and Elizabeth have crossed the country to save endangered historic treasures, raising money via lectures, receptions, galas, luncheons, dinners and their popular writers' workshops. To date, over 2,500 students have attended those workshops. In 2012 their work was recognized by the American Library Association, which named Steve the first spokesman for National Preservation Week. He was also appointed by the Smithsonian Board of Regents to serve on the Smithsonian Libraries Advisory Board to help promote and support the libraries in their mission to provide information in all forms to scientists, curators, scholars, students and the public at large. He has received the Royden B. Davis Distinguished Author Award; the 2013 Barnes & Noble Writers for Writers Award; his novel The Columbus Affair earned him the Anne Frank Human Writes Award; and International Thriller Writers bestowed him the 2013 Silver Bullet for his work with historic preservation. A 2010 NPR survey named The Templar Legacy one of the top 100 thrillers ever written.

Steve was born and raised in Georgia, graduating from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. He was a trial lawyer for 30 years and held elective office for 14 of those years. He is a founding member of International Thriller Writers--a group of more than 2,600 thriller writers from around the world--and served three years as its co-president.
