Non-stop action

In this fourth novel featuring the one-time top operative for the U.S. Justice Department, Cotton Malone, Cotton sets out to discover the full story behind his father¿s death thirty-eight years ago. Cashing in a favor with his ex-boss Stephanie Nelle, Cotton learns a shocking the shocking secret that the Navy covered up. His father died in a top-secret submarine mission beneath the ice shelves of Antarctica. Within minutes of receiving the highly classified file Cotton finds himself in danger. In order to save himself and learn the truth behind the cover-up he teams up with twin sisters Dorothea Lindauer and Christl Falk whose father also died on the submarine. Filled with unease about working with the twins Cotton cautiously embarks on a perilous journey by solving clues left in a diary found in Charlemagne¿s tomb. Filled with non-stop action, The Charlemagne Pursuit kept me on the edge of my seat the entire book. Berry threw curve balls left and right that kept me second guessing who was a good guy and who was just plain up to no good. I actually cried at the end and even though the book is 528 pages I wished it would have gone on for 500 more. Having read all three of the previous Cotton Malone books I can honestly say that this book is the best one yet but if you¿ve haven¿t read the previous three this one does stand alone. I HIGHLY recommend this book to all thriller and suspense lovers.

Cotton Malone has yet another adventure. This is the 2nd Berry Book I've read and mistakenly have read out of order. I hope it does not matter. I am starting to get a feel for Berry's writting style and like how he takes factual information and events and add little bits to make it his own. This only makes the story more interesting. The one thing I really ejoyed about this book is how Berry brings closure to a desparate ache in Malone's heart. This book series reminds me of a cross between the Dan Brown - Robert Langdon stories and the Jack Ryan stories - by Tom Clancy (Patriot Games).

    Don't Buy this book

    The story line is great, but I cannot read the book because keeps resetting to a previous page or previous chapter. Very aggravating to say the least.

    more from this reviewer

    Abridged audio is too confusing. SPOILERS

    Abridged CD/Code Mystery: Wow, this was bad. I can't fully blame the author because this may be a good paperback read. I don't blame narrator Scott Brick, who read tons of novels for a living. I blame the producer/director for this jumble of do-do. The director had Brick read the book really fast. When there was a change of paragraph (scene or characters), there wasn't any sort of pause in between. It kept rolling on and became confusing because there were so many characters in three parts of the world. This is book four of the Cotton Malone series, and I was confused on who everyone was. Here is what I can tell you: While in Europe, Cotton's dad died on a submarine during the 60's from toxic fumes when something went wrong. In Washington D.C., Ramsey has political aspirations and has someone kill anyone who know about the Charlemagne secret. Search party was misdirected on where sub sank. Jump to somewhere else in America, Stephanie who is one step behind a killer, I think. Davies hates Ramsey and thinks Ramsey killed some chick. The U.S. President may or may not be a good/bad guy or smart/dumb. Some guy gets blown up. Cotton meets 50 year-old twins who hate each other. The twins are pegged against each other by their mother. Their father died on sub. Cotton has sex with one twin, who you think is the good twin. Overnight, the story ends with Cotton in Antarctica, underground, in a lost frozen city with twins and mother. Cotton and twin in some Bulgarian monastery, I think, and try to figure out puzzle to lost city. Cotton's dad died here with crew and not on sub. (Not caring at this point, just want it over.) Evil twin is not evil twin, but good twin, I think. Twin kills twin and then kills herself. Cotton back at home with.... cliff hanger. Okay, the person who abridged this book needs to get blamed too. Skip the abridged audio.

    a good history lesson

    I have read several Cotton Malone books, however, I did not think this one was the best. I enjoyed it, but not sa much as some of the others in this series. The history presented was excellent.
