The 16th Amendment to the Constitution legalized federal
income tax, but what if there were problems with the 1913
ratification of that amendment? Problems that call into
question decades of tax collecting, and could even bring
down the US economy. There is a surprising truth to this
possibilityâ€”a truth wholly entertained by Steve Berry, a
top-ten New York Times bestselling writer, in his new
thriller, The Patriot Threat.
His protagonist, Cotton Malone, once a member of an elite
intelligence division within the Justice Department known as
the Magellan Billet, is now retired. But when his former
boss, Stephanie Nelle, asks him to track a rogue North
Korean who may have acquired some top secret Treasury
Department filesâ€”the kind that could bring the United States
to its kneesâ€”Malone is vaulted into a harrowing
twenty-four-hour chase that begins on the water in Venice
and ends in the remote highlands of Croatia.
With appearances by Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Mellon, and a
curious painting that still hangs in the National Gallery of
Art, Steve Berryâ€™s trademark mix of history and suspense is
90% fact and 10% exciting speculation, a provocative
thriller that poses a dangerous question: What if the
federal income tax is illegal?
