Steve Berry does a good job of combining a fast paced contemporary plot line with historical roots reaching back in time, in this case to Napoleon. Former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is called upon by his wealthy and powerful friend, Henrik Thorvaldsen, for help seeking revenge against the people responsible for killing his son. Malone finds himself working to stop an amoral group of greedy tycoons called “The Paris Club,” while simultaneously trying to discover the location of a treasure hidden by Napoleon. Most of the action takes place in and around Paris, with lots of historical nuggets tossed in to add to the reader’s enjoyment. I found it interesting that, with the exception of Jesus Christ, there have been more books written about Napoleon than anyone else and that the river Seine means winding river in French.

This is the third one of this series by Steve Berry that I have read and he continues to write fun-to-read, action packed page turners.
