Cotton Malone has a problem.
The former U.S. Justice operative has just returned home from an exhausting adventure that took him from his home in Copenhagen to the frozen wilderness of the Antarctic.
It’s just days until Christmas, and all Malone wants to do is sleep. Alas, in author Steve Berry’s world, Malone can never seem to catch his breath before being embroiled in the dangerous world of espionage, world economics and counterintelligence.
In “The Paris Vendetta,” Malone joins forces with his friend and mentor Henrik Thorvaldsen, a billionaire, who is still reeling from the death of his only son, Cai, two years prior in a bloody attack in Mexico City.
In his quest to find Cai’s killers, Thorvaldsen has hooked up with rookie American Secret Service agent Sam Collins, who has recently disgraced himself by promoting the idea that there’s a secret organization called The Paris Club bent on controlling the world’s finances. Collins believes the group is about to launch a project that involves both the future of global economies and Napoleon’s secret treasure hoard.
While Collins and Malone focus on the activities of The Paris Club, Thorvaldsen gains membership so he can execute one of the club’s most visible members – the man behind his son’s death.
Berry is the master of creating a heart-stopping plot, driven by action, mystery and, of course, a serious history lesson.
Editor’s note: Steve Berry's novels contain graphic violence. Interferring with Cotton Malone and his allies guarantees a very short life span.
