Steve Berry, In Pursuit Again

October 23, 2008

Steve Berry’s first novel, The Amber Room, was published in 2003. The book, about a search for the famed amber panels taken by the Nazis from Russia’s Catherine Palace was a bestseller. Since then, Berry has written five more thriller bestsellers, pursuits in the vein of The Da Vinci Code. Of these six books, the first three (The Amber Room, The Romanov Prophecy and The Third Secret) had unrelated protagonists, while the last three (The Templar Legacy, The Alexandria Link and The Venetian Betrayal) share ex-U.S. Justice Department agent Cotton Malone as the star character. The Charlemagne Pursuit is due out December 2nd and looks to be the best of Berry’s Cotton Malone books yet.
