Kurzbeschreibung

27. Dezember 2011 Cotton Malone

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Four presidents of the United States have been assassinated—in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963—each murder seemingly unrelated. But what if those presidents were all killed for the shocking same reason: a clause contained in the United States Constitution? This is the question faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone. When President Danny Daniels is nearly killed in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks his life to foil the murder—only to find himself at odds with the Commonwealth, a secret society of pirates first assembled during the American Revolution. Racing across the nation and taking to the high seas, Malone and Cassiopeia Vitt must break a secret cipher originally possessed by Thomas Jefferson, unravel a mystery concocted by Andrew Jackson, and unearth a document forged by the Founding Fathers themselves—one powerful enough to make the Commonwealth unstoppable.

Don’t miss Steve Berry’s short story “The Devil’s Gold” and a sneak peek of his new novel, The Columbus Affair, in the back of the book.

History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel.

To date, nearly 2,500 students have attended those workshops. In 2012 their work was recognized by the American Library Association, which named Steve the first spokesman for National Preservation Week. He was also appointed by the Smithsonian Board of Regents to serve on the Smithsonian Libraries Advisory Board to help promote and support the libraries in their mission to provide information in all forms to scientists, curators, scholars, students, and the public at large. He has received the Royden B. Davis Distinguished Author Award and the 2013 Writers for Writers Award from Poets & Writers. His novel The Columbus Affair earned him the Anne Frank Human Writes Award, and his historic preservation work merited the 2013 Silver Bullet from International Thriller Writers.
 
Steve Berry was born and raised in Georgia, graduating from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. He was a trial lawyer for 30 years and held elective office for 14 of those years. He is a founding member of International Thriller Writers—a group of more than 2,600 thriller writers from around the world—and served three years as its co-president.

Von Amelrode
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I believe I have read all of Berry's novels but I have to say I am getting more and more disappointed.

Steve Berry writes now with a lot of speed and his novels are published at a regular interval. That might be excatly the problem. There seems to be too many projects and the quality goes downhill. It seems that to me that this is mass production, factory kind of writing. Cahsing in at all price one is inclinded to ask. It is always the same, just the historic background is changing.

If you want to keep your readers Steve you have to do better. Please do remember "less is more".

4.0 von 5 Sternen Heimspiel für Cotton Malone 8. Juli 2011
Von Zeitgeist
Format:Taschenbuch
Mit 'The Jefferson Key' legt Steve Berry den siebten Band seiner Cotton Malone Reihe vor. Diesmal führen die Ereignisse Cotton zurück in die USA und die Handlung spielt daher vollständig an der amerikanisch-kanadischen Ostküste. Dementsprechend ist der historische Teil diesmal mit der amerikanischen Geschichte seit dem Unabhängigkeitskrieg verwoben. Die ganze Geschichte wirkt noch stärker als die letzten Bände wie ein Agenten-Thriller, auch wenn das übliche historische Rätsel einer Cotton Malone Geschichte natürlich in die Handlung eingewoben ist.

Immerhin scheint Berry seine Startschwierigkeiten am Anfang seiner Romane überwunden zu haben und diesmal ist der Roman von Anfang an spannend, statt erst nach dem ersten Drittel anzuziehen. Routiniert schickt der Autor seine Protagonisten auf die Reise und wie gewohnt bekommt der Leser auch einige Einblicke aus der Sicht von Cottons Gegenspielern. Inzwischen gönnt Berry seinen Figuren auch spürbar mehr Tiefe als zu Beginn der Serie. Natürlich darf man in diesem Gerne keine übertriebenen Ansprüche hegen, steht doch die Handlung und vor allem der Spaß am Mischen von realen historischen Ereignissen und fiktionalen Geschehnissen im Vordergrund, was Berry meisterhaft beherrscht. Dennoch wirken seine Figuren lebendiger als in früheren Bänden der Reihe.

Über 'The Jefferson Key' kann man zwei Dinge feststellen: Zum einen ist der historische Aspekt sehr stark auf Personen und Ereignisse fokussiert und weniger auf historische Artefakte, zum anderen nehmen die Figuren eine lebendigere Rollen in der Geschichte ein, als in früheren Bänden.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not the best part of the series 21. Juli 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
This part of the Cotton Malone series did not convince: The mystery is not an ancient mystery but an alleged secret from the beginning of the US history. Furthermore, this secret seems to be a bit far-fetched: Letters of marque, lost but still valid, pirates still active, hm? Ok, not each part of the series can be perfect. The person in focus this time is Dany Daniels, the fictitous president of the United States - or is he? More his wife, I would say, or ... her friend. Well, well, hm. And the British fort where the climax of the story happens, where the secret is found and the final battle is taking place: It is invented, only. It does not sum up to a round story. You can better, Steve Berry!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The reason for reading steve berry. 5. August 2011
Format:Taschenbuch
Sorry I don`t have a video... but I have always enjoyed Mr. Berry`s writing. He has allways done a complete indepth research on the subject he is writting about, goes to a ot of trouble explaining what is fact and where and how he was added fiction.
Once I start reading one of his stories its really hard for me to put the book down. If he is as intent with his law practice as he is with his writting I`d want him on my side and not against me in a court action.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding read, multi-faceted plot, fast moving, historical ties 6. Mai 2011
Von Coolfire - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Steve Berry has done it again. The Jefferson Key is an outstanding read. This work a major sized industrial strength novel closely integrating intrigue, complexity, and history.

Starts right off with a fast dramatic setting involving President Andrew Jackson, simultaneously disclosing some fascinating historical facts which I expect are known by very few.

And then immediately we're taken into the present, and our hero, Cotton Malone, has screwed up big time in a major pickle. We're off on our fast moving adventure. No slack here. . .

This novel wraps itself around a complex multi-faceted plot involving multiple security agencies, interesting interplays between strong characters in addition to Cotton, such as rouge agent Jonathan Wyatt (who I happen to like), NIA chief Andrea Carbonnel, and Cassiopeia Vitt, with shifting loyalties, and a strong private organization, called the commonwealth, which derived its credentials from a privateer past and Article 1 Section 8 of our Constitution - the little known or understood Letters of Marque. I had sometimes wondered what that clause meant and was all about.

In fact, there is a great deal of fascinating historical tidbits closely integrated with the plot, demonstrating an enormous amount of relevant research done by the author which went into this writing. Another way of saying it, there is a wealth of interesting information in this book.

This is one of those works which one wished did not end, rich in intrigue, action, and fascinating historical facts integrated closely within the current action.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Real Pirates 12. Mai 2011
Von S. A. W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
The Jefferson Key gets off to a strong start, first with the attempted assassination of Andrew Jackson, then with an attempt on the life of a modern-day President. Cotton Malone, a former Justice Department operative, is dispatched to bring down the Commonwealth, a covert band of privateers whose roots go back to the American Revolution.

Mixing historical fact with fictional fancy, Steve Berry delivers a complex, perhaps even convoluted, thriller. There are lots of characters and lots of government agencies and at times it's difficult to remember who's who. The story follows multiple viewpoints, often within the same chapter. As a result, the plot comes across as a bit choppy and occasionally bogs down.

The most enjoyable aspect of The Jefferson Key is its portrayal of pirate culture. No camp buccaneers here; Berry gives us a brutal yet organised band who lives by a strict set of agreed-upon articles.

This is the first Cotton Malone book I've read, and as thrillers go, I have to say it is just average. However, the real life history woven into the story was quite interesting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What an entertaining read. 1. Mai 2011
Von M. A. Filippelli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
That Author Steve Berry has created here in an ingenious mix of history and fiction to tie together the plot line of this book.

Cotton Malone receives a request for help. He doesn't know why he's needed but he trusts the woman who is asking.

What unfolds here is an interesting and complex story of Governmental agencies working with and covertly against each other to solve a cipher that holds the key to a non Governmental group called the Commonwealth who was constitutionally enabled to act as Pirates that was authorized by George Washington. Giving them the ability to steal and disrupt other countries that are deemed enemies of the United States. However they have been using and abusing this loop hole for personal gain and not always acting on behalf of the United States.

The book through the fictional story line ties together the assassinations of four sitting Presidents Kennedy, Lincoln, McKinley, Jackson and fictional President Danny Daniels. Danny Daniels.

Berry will have you believing that almost all of the characters is or could be a suspect including the Presidents wife. It seems that almost everyone and every agency has something to gain or loose be the revealing the key to some secret documents.

The story line is complex and it difficult to figure out what the true motives of the characters until the end. This is an intense thriller that will keep you up late reading. The beginning of the book is like no other that i have read, it will lock you in right away and keep you reading all the way through to it's exciting conclusion.

This is the first Berry book I have read. Berry has produced several Cotton Malone books. As a reader I got a good feel for who the character Cotton Malone is from this book.

As I noted earlier , Berry mixes some non fictional history with fictional history. The last chapter Berry clears up what is non fictional history and what is fictional history and explains why he changed some minor facts to tie the story together. The only possible negative I can think of is that the reader is hit with a lot of characters and it can be hard to keep track of them only because the story and the motives of the characters are so complex. I'm not even sure if that's really a negative though.

The writing style is fluid, the editing is good if not great. There aren't many wasted words. The book flows from one chapter to the next

Very well done. Just about every superlative I can think of can be attached to this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely not for the squeamish! 19. Mai 2011
Von Grandma - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I love Steve Berry's books and more than a few of them grace my bookshelves. However, I did not find his latest, The Jefferson Key, as interesting and compelling as The Emperor's Tomb (Cotton Malone). Worse though, this latest offering kept forcing me to put it down.

Now, I am not a squeamish person. I've attended autopsies and studied all kinds of gruesome diseases and watched operations and dealt with gallons of blood. This time, though, Steve really outdid himself with graphic descriptions of torture. When eyeballs started flying across the pages of the book, I had had enough. There is such a thing as too much and frankly, The Jefferson Key is simply not interesting enough to overcome the stomach-churning gore.

Give this one a miss.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A little busy 1. September 2011
Von Dr. No - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
While the story and conspiracy is good there are to many characters to keep track of and excessive back and forth between the 10 important characters in the story. It was hard to keep everyone straight and to develop any connection with names like Cotton and Cassiopia or some such. Then there is Knox, Hale, Wyatt, Daniels, Davis, Stephanie, Carbonell and Shirely. Just to busy.
