Thank you Steve Berry for an awesome story!
This story, takes Cotton on the journey to finally find what happened to his father, and though the file may be from D.C. to find out the truth he must start his truth seeking in Germany.
Of course, Cotton is followed by agents who, you guess it put a transmitter on his car again. (My only complaint in the series is that you would think he'd check for those darn things)
The main character, Cotton Malone, is a recurring one. He is definitely a likable character. A former government agent, he is currently retired from service and living in Denmark, where he is a bookseller. Then he learns that his beloved father, who died when Cotton was a child, had not perished is a submarine disaster in the North Atlantic as originally thought, but, instead had died while on a classified secret mission in a submarine lost beneath the ice shelves of Antarctica
Cotton joins forces with twin sisters, German by birth, whose own father had also disappeared on that same submarine. They each want to discover the truth about their father's death. There are journals written in a previously unknown language, clues found in the tomb of Charlemagne, and other revelations. Adding to the problems of the quest is the enmity between the sisters, making the quest a do or die situation.
Unlike the author's other books, this one dragged. It also hit an all time high on the implausibility scale. While I am still a fan, this simply was not one of his better books. While it picked up some steam towards the end, it did not compensate for all of the moments of inertia one felt while reading this book. If you have never before read a book by this author, do not make this one your first, or you may never pick up another of this author's books again. Fans will stay the course and hope that the next one will have the author back on track.
If you like history merged into fiction you'll enjoy this book.
