Book Review: The Patriot threat

Book: The Patriot threat

Author: Steve Berry

Plot: Cotton Malone, once a member of an elite intelligence division within the Justice Department known as the Magellan Billet, is now retired and owns an old bookshop in Denmark. But when his former-boss, Stephanie Nelle, asks him to track a rogue North Korean who may have acquired some top secret Treasury Department files—the kind that could bring the United States to its knees—Malone is vaulted into a harrowing twenty-four hour chase that begins on the canals in Venice and ends in the remote highlands of Croatia. With appearances by Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Mellon, a curious painting that still hangs in the National Gallery of Art, and some eye-opening revelations from the $1 bill, this riveting, non-stop adventure is trademark Steve Berry—90% historical fact, 10% exciting speculation—a provocative thriller posing a dangerous question: What if the Federal income tax is illegal?

Rating: 4/ 5 stars


Man !! That is too much History and Information !!

Steve Berry is one of those authors who bring thrill in thriller fictions. Pick up any book and you would find a solid conspiracy theory at its base. The way the author picks up and sharpen these conspiracy theories to form a story is remarkable and that is why Steve Berry is up there with the likes of Dan Brown having a large fan following. He is ingenious to his own way of narration and treatment of his themes and story.
