Then there is the statement regarding a botanical-based potion; "These concoctions are pure organic. Nature's own. They leave no chemical residue. No signature. Nothing to find in the blood or tissue." The potions include Datura which most definitely leaves a chemical signature. Where is the research and at least a modest degree of common sense?
Another lame story line is that when Ms. Vitt inhales one of the potions she discovers her past life as a luminary in the court of King Arthur. Why can't, just one time, someone's past life be as a grower of potatoes or a herder of sheep. Piling on the ridiculous premise, the main protagonist, when inhaling the same potion, joins in the same past life as Ms. Vitt. Not ten years later, or ten years before but exactly the same time. Baloney.
I am only 63% through the short story and have given up reading it with such trite absurdities in the writing. This story is not befitting the level of competency readers have come to expect from Steve Berry with or without a co-author. Don't waste your money on this story.
The idea of the story’s foundation is interesting, intriguing and entertaining. It’s a fascinating mystery with history embedded throughout the book. The writers introduce Cassiopeia Vitt who is no stranger to Steve Berry’s Malone Series readers. Cassiopeia has compassion in this story, she has extreme intelligence and she is encouraging adventurous in this story. The only flaw I think is in the story some issues should have been more openly explained to the reader and the story needed to be longer. It would have been better as a book and not such a short story.
The captivating story starts in a mountain village in France. Cassiopeia is visiting a friend at the Museum of Mysteries, a private area of the unusual and dense unknowable characters to tour. While there, a robbery takes place and Cassiopeia didn’t hesitate to chase the burglar and suddenly finds herself in a disturbing heap of chaos. The chase began in Southern France throughout the streets of Paris.
The story goes back and forth between time scenario’s which leads her on unfathomable journeys. She got involved in an angry contested French presidential election where both candidates had problematic secrets they preferred to stay buried. Back at the museum the stolen object was a wooden box of vials containing potions that would harm anyone who did not know how to use them. So, the French Presidency would be in peril if someone used the ancient potions against them.
This mysterious magical story was a fast-paced thriller that was well organized and entertaining….
