New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry
returns with his latest thriller, a Cotton Malone adventure
involving a flaw in the United States Constitution, a
mystery about Abraham Lincoln, and a political issue thatâ€™s
as explosive as it is timelyâ€”not only in Maloneâ€™s world, but
All is not as it seems. With these cryptic words,
a shocking secret passed down from president to president
comes to rest in the hands of Abraham Lincoln. And as the
first bloody clashes of the Civil War unfold, Lincoln alone
must decide how best to use this volatile knowledge: save
thousands of American lives, or keep the young nation from
being torn apart forever?
In Utah, the fabled remains of Mormon pioneers whose
nineteenth-century expedition across the desert met with a
murderous end have been uncovered. In Washington, D.C., the
official investigation of an international entrepreneur, an
elder in the Mormon church, has sparked a political battle
between the White House and a powerful United States
senator. In Denmark, a Justice Department agent, missing in
action, has fallen into the hands of a dangerous zealotâ€”a
man driven by divine visions to make a prophetâ€™s words
reality. And in a matter of a few short hours, Cotton Malone
has gone from quietly selling books at his shop in Denmark
to dodging bullets in a high-speed boat chase.
All it takes is a phone call from his former boss
in Washington, and suddenly the ex-agent is racing to rescue
an informant carrying critical intelligence. Itâ€™s just the
kind of perilous business that Malone has been trying to
leave behind, ever since he retired from the Justice
Department. But once he draws enemy blood, Malone is plunged
into a deadly conflictâ€”a constitutional war secretly set in
motion more than two hundred years ago by Americaâ€™s Founding
From the streets of Copenhagen to
the catacombs of Salzburg to the rugged mountains of Utah,
the grim specter of the Civil War looms as a dangerous
conspiracy gathers power. Malone risks life, liberty, and
his greatest love in a race for the truth about Abraham
Lincolnâ€”while the fate of the United States of America hangs
in the balance.
