DESCRIPTION:

Not impressed heretofore I read The Templar Legacy over a decade ago and I have eagerly awaited each new Cotton Malone book since. I preordered this book nearly four months ago. I am currently about 30% into this book and I'm not impressed. With other CM books I would read for hours until my eyes watered. They were proverbial page turners. Not so much yet with this point. I have had to put the book down several times. It had been my impression that Mr. Berry was a thorough and dedicated researcher. The style and tone of this book almost sems like it was written by someone else. Some passages feel like they were taken from Wikipedia, a few words delete. "I thoroughly enjoyed this book" according to Carol Ann Stone. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I own all of Steve Berry's books. This one is my favorite by far. Having grown up in Erie County New York there was always talk of Canada becoming part of the US. This is a must read book. The 20th Amendment is thoroughly explained. It is interesting who becomes president if something happens to the President. It is true that on the evening of the State of the Union one of the cabinet members will not be there. That person is the person who will be the next president if something happens to the President Vice-President and the other cabinet members. Great read. I hope who ever reads this book wi. Soap Opera Thriller I wish I could say that the historical background of these novels was the reason I keep coming back to them. That may have been what got me interested but, at this point, the history has become weaker and secondary. Instead, these Cotton Malone thrillers have basically become a literary soap opera for me. I’m basically interested in how the relationships are going to develop in the face of gonzo action.To his credit, Mr. Berry has created a credible alternate history world filled with interesting characters. Cotton & Cassiopeia, Stephanie & Danny, and Luke are the recurring characters (and couples) of interest. Zorin, Pe

"Berry raises this genre's stakes."The New York Times"I love this guy."Lee Child“One of Berry's best books to date.”Associated Press on The Patriot Threat“My kind of thriller.” Dan Brown on The Amber Room“Steve Berry is a master at weaving together historical details with fiction to create a spellbinding thriller…The Patriot Threat is suspenseful, entertaining and thought provoking. As usual, Berry’s writing is smooth, the plot well thought out, and the characters realistic. It’s loaded with action, character sketches, fascinating history and Mr. Berry’s liberal use of poetic license.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette<

A flaw in the Constitution, and an even more flawed presidential succession act, have opened the door to disaster and Zorin intends to exploit both weaknesses to their fullest. What happens if both the president and vice-president-elect die before taking the oath of office? The answer is far from certainin fact, what follows would be nothing short of total political chaos.Shot down over Siberia, ex-Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is forced into a fight for survival against Aleksandr Zorin, a man whose loyalty to the former Soviet Union has festered for decades into an intense hatred of the United States.Before escaping, Malone learns that Zorin and another ex-KGB officer, this one a sleeper still embedded in the West, are headed overseas to Washington D.C. In a race against the clock that starts in the frozen extremes of Russia and ultimately ends at the White House itself, Malone must not only battle Zorin, he must also confront a crippling fear th
