I finished Steve Berry's The Alexandria Link last night. The book features Cotton Malone who has appeared as the main character in several of Berry's previous works as well.

Malone, who retired as a US government agent and is living in Denmark as a book seller, is drawn back into action when his son is kidnapped.

The reason is Malone's knowledge of George Haddad, a Palestinian who is the Alexandria Link, a person who can find the lost library of Alexandria.

Several groups are seeking the library, and several others are trying to stop it from being found as there is reason to believe that the Jewish land granted to them by God is in Saudi Arabia in the area of Mecca and Medina and not Jerusalem, which would cause turmoil from both Jews and Muslims.

Business interests, foreign governments, agents, and keepers of the library all pursue and chase one another in this suspenseful page turner.

I thought the whole thing was well done for the genre and will continue to read Berry's works as his topics continue to be of interest to me, his characters are well thought-out, and he has twists that are surprising, yet believable within the context of the book.
