Cotton Malone of The Columbus Affair is back crossing London with his teenage son and a young fugitive. Naturally complications arise, and an historical conspiracy comes to light. It is fast, at times thought-provoking and hideously inaccurate. It is also very American and set in London! But hey – it’s a Steve Berry adventure, it’s allowed to be improbable and OTT. That is what you read it for. Right?

If you like Steve Berry you might also like to read books by James Twining, Raymond Khoury and Chris Kuzneski.

Synopsis

The King's Deception by Steve Berry

There is a secret from our history - 500 years old - startling in its revelations and devastating in its political impact. A secret that has, thankfully, stayed hidden. Until now. Former Justice Department agent, Cotton Malone, travels to England and finds himself caught in a dark conspiracy born long ago, in the time of the Tudors. Now both the CIA and MI6 seem to be competing to uncover the mystery and, for Malone, supposedly on holiday with his son, Gary, it's not just the action which comes thick and fast. When Gary disappears, Malone is forced into a race against time, as he battles to decipher a puzzle that leads him from the Middle Temple to the chapel at Windsor Castle, from an Oxford college to the sewers beneath Hampton Court. With assassins, traitors, spies, and dangerous disciples of a secret society closing in, Malone discovers that the solution to the mystery will not only draw him into a lethal trap, but force him closer to his own troubling past. And a shocking revelation.

Reviews

In classical Steve Berry style, there are more twists and turns in this plot than in a 1970s disco bar. With its great plot and interesting characters, this book is a real page turner and an enjoyable read. Highly recommended.- History Novel Society

A textbook lesson in everything a great thriller should be. As smart as it is chilling, as bold as it is brash, Berry's latest is literary entertainment of the highest order.- Author Magazine

Betrayals abound, and it's never clear what's really going on or the true motives behind the players manipulating Malone at every turn. The Big Story The tension, the suspense and the adrenaline rush are all at their most fevered pitch. - Huffington Post
