Kurzbeschreibung

27. Juli 2010 Cotton Malone
Former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone wakes to find an intruder in his Copenhagen bookshop: an American Secret Service agent with assassins on his heels. Narrowly surviving a ferocious firefight, the two journey to the secluded estate of Malone’s friend Henrik Thorvaldsen. The wily Danish tycoon has uncovered the insidious plans of the Paris Club, a cabal of multimillionaires bent on manipulating the global economy. But Thorvaldsen also harbors a hidden agenda—a vendetta—that will force Malone to choose between friend and country, past and present. Starting in Denmark, moving to England, and ending up in the storied streets and cathedrals of Paris, Malone is forced to match wits with a terrorist for hire and to plunge into a desperate hunt for Napoleon’s legendary treasure, lost for two hundred years. It’s a breathless game of duplicity and death, all to claim a prize of untold value. But at what cost?

Von Amelrode
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I was quite looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed. I got hooked with page one and could not let go. Mainly set in Paris around Christmas the No. 8 of the Cotton Malone mysteries - as in the previous seven novels - offers the reader a fast moving plot linking present and past. It is action packed and another thriller of first order. Political intrigues of the present find their link with the past and its mysteries. Fact and fiction merge into a gret a story.

This novel is sequence but stands as well alone and makes perfect sense.

The chapters are short and easy to read and one simply wants to know what happens next. The style is just fanastic and a pleasure to read.

No. 8 of the Cotton Malone mysteries is a changing point as familiar figures leave the scene and new emegeres. It will be interesting to see how these develop. Somthing to look forward to.

If you enjoy thrillers this is one you do not want to miss. Steven Berry has proven himself - once more - as a superb story teller.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The wrath of Thorwaldsen creates a catastrophic fate 2. Dezember 2012
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This time Steve Berry concentrates on Henryk Thorwaldsen and his revenge for the death of his son. Thorwaldsen found out who was the killer, but the Magellan Billet wants him, too, and alive. Cotton Malone stands between them and has to act as a friend against Thorwaldsen which escalates Thorwaldsen's wrath to the extreme, with catastrophic consequences.

I enjoyed this book more than "The Charlemagne Pursuit", it is much more realistic and the plot is really dramatic in the very sense. One important person has to die, another one comes newly into the story. The fight against the professional terrorist Peter Lion has James Bond qualities. One of the best Cotton Malone books, I would say.

What is strange is the notion that Muslims in France were allegedly repressed from taking part in the societal life and therefore tend to terrorism; no such repression exists, especially not in a laical country like France, rather it is the other way round that a certain part of the Muslims keeps distance to western rationality, freedom and the French way of life, although they are invited to take part; furthermore radical believers of all religions need no other reason for bombing than that someone is not submissive to their faith. All in all the book has a far too simple view on problems with Muslim immigration in Europe.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Malone zum Fünften... 13. Mai 2010
Von Zeitgeist
Format:Taschenbuch
Mit 'The Paris Vendeta' liegt der fünfte Cotton Malone Roman von Steve Berry vor. Der erste Eindruck neben dem Vorgänger 'The Charlemagne Pursuit' ist: Deutlich dünner. Da Berry jedoch meistens eine ganze Weile braucht, bis seine Geschichten in Fahrt kommen, schadet die Kürze dem Roman nicht. Im Gegenteil, nach nicht einmal 200 Seiten ist der Punkt erreicht, ab dem man am liebsten in einem Zug bis zum Ende durchlesen würde. Das Ende hat es dann in sich, aber mehr soll an dieser Stelle nicht verraten werden, ohne die Spannung zu verderben.

Der zweite Eindruck von 'The Paris Vendeta' ist: Ähnlich, aber doch anders. Alles in allem backt Berry hier etwas kleiner Brötchen. Der historische Aspekt tritt etwas in den Hintergrund und die Geschichte wird dafür (tages)politischer. Ob dem Autor die Puste ausgegangen ist, wäre reine Spekulation und Napoleon ist sicher eine interessante historische Persönlichkeit, aber nach dem Templer Orden, der Bibliothek von Alexandria, dem Grab von Alexander dem Großen und sogar Atlantis, wirkt die Geschichte um den französischen Kaiser doch etwas unspektakulärer. Wobei man Fairerweise sagen muß, daß der Autor die Meßlatte mit den vorherigen Themen auch extrem hoch gehangen hat. Positiv betrachtet fällt der neuste Band der Serie wieder deutlich bodenständiger aus.

Die Handlung ist insgesamt recht überschaubar, in der Jetzt-Zeit zum Großteil auf Paris konzentriert und springt in gewohnter Weise von Figur zu Figur. Dabei liest sich der Roman wirklich sehr wie ein Agententhriller.

5.0 von 5 Sternen BERRY AT HIS BEST 13. Januar 2010
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Opening with Napoleon on Egypt's Giza Plateau in 1799 Steve Barry again takes us on an exciting, suspenseful, ever surprising journey with former justice department operative Cotton Malone. One of the many things that makes reading a Berry book so intriguing is his splendid mix of history and mystery.

As we know Napoleon was, among other things, an excellent thief. He had stolen vast treasures from repositories of wealth throughout the world. Question is what became of this booty after his death? Was it hidden somewhere, could it be found?

Malone's night is rudely interrupted by a break-in to his Copenhagen bookshop. An American Secret Service agent, Sam Collins, comes knocking with gun in hand and assassins in his wake. He's there to tell Cotton that his good friend, Henrik Thorvaldsen, needs him. Escaping the gunmen Cotton and Sam head for Henrik's estate.

Seems that Henrik is onto a plot devised by the Paris Club, a group of the world's wealthiest who are bent on manipulating global economy. Cotton and Henrik have been the best of friends and in many a tight spot, but this time it seems even Cotton may not be able to hold terrorists at bay, find Napoleon's lost treasure, and prevent an attack that could change the world forever.

To compound matters, as if they weren't compounded enough, Cotton discovers that Henrik's motives aren't entirely altruistic - he wants revenge for the death of his son who was murdered by the top dog in this cabal of multi-millionaires.

Once more, Berry's love of history and knack for crafting a suspenseful tale come to the fore with THE PARIS VENDETTA. It'S Berry at his best, and that's saying something.

If you prefer an audio edition, Scott Brick does his usual first rate job of bringing a story to life. He's an aces narrator! Available from Random House Audio Books.

Enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent 4. Dezember 2009
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Danish billionaire Henrik Thorvaldsen obsesses over the terrorist incident in Mexico City that left seven dead including his son. He cannot move on as the brain behind the assault has remained free although he now knows who he is.

Henrik sends apparently fired Secret Service Agent Sam Collins to break into the Copenhagen bookstore owned by former United States Department of Justice (DOJ) operative Cotton Malone. The grieving Dane hopes to obtain Malone's cooperation to help bring down the killer Lord Ashby who has ties to a financial cartel the Paris Club planning an assault on the global economy for avaricous gains that the DOJ hopes to counter. The starting point in the plan is a plot to destroy a landmark that could kill hundreds; war is usury profitable for the finance community.

With terrific ties to Napoleon in Corsica and an exciting action packed story line, the latest Cotton Malone thriller (see The Charlemagne Pursuit) is a fun read. Filled with twists and over the top of the Eiffel Tower villains, fans will enjoy Malone's newest retirement caper mindful of War, Inc and If Looks Could Kill although not a satire. Malone teams up with a grieving angry father and a First Amendment conspiracy buff to thwart the latest capitalist plot to have the masses finance war with money and blood so the affluent can make outrageous profits.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Once again, Cotton Malone 14. Dezember 2009
Von Frank J. Konopka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Steve Berry's books are like candy; you read them quickly because the plot is compelling, and you have a pleasant aftertaste. This is the latest in a string of books written about Cotton Malone, the American ex-pat bookseller now living in Denmark. No matter how hard he tries to be retired, just like Michael Corleone "They keep dragging me back".

This is another quest for something valuable, in this case the fabled "lost treasure" of Napoleon. The quest takes us to various interesting places, but most prominently to Paris, where most of the action is centered.

A few new characters for the "good guys" are introduced (and I suspect we may read about them again in the future), and there are the usual coterie of "bad guys". The plot may be a bit "out there", but the book is a very good way to spend a few pleasant hours, finish the book, and wait expectantly for the next Cotton Malone book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not too bad but...cheesey 4. Mai 2010
Von 1eyejacks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was much better than The Charlemagne Pursuit. The Paris Vendetta does have it's problems but it is very readable and takes the reader for a little adventure ride so I give it 3 stars. Not too bad. I'm not trying to be some overly critical reader here, but I hate it when the pieces don't fit together very well. Again he uses Book Store Cotton as his main driver to move the story ahead but it may be time to kill off Cotton or retire him for awhile. Gggeezzzz this poor guy is getting older and some of the antics he's doing are beyond impossible and the scenes with poor Cotton and the helicopter and the runaway plane at the Eiffel Tower must have worn the guy out. As usual Berry throwns in a some history and speculation and some invention to spice up the story and although Napoleon's Treasure is a very central point it does seem to get lost in the action mish-mash and seems to just be an afterthought; which helps to make this a very average middle-of-the-road-thriller.

I don't see any problems with some of the shortened chapters, afterall they clearly avoid chapters crammed with too much.

There are also points where it really drags because it Steve will go into the travelogue mode and overdescribe some details about geography, history or architecture. Not a bad read but not a great read. I like a thriller to put me a bit more on the edge of my seat.

If you like some thrills and some history I'd recommend this book for you to read.

2.0 von 5 Sternen ANOTHER BERRY DISAPPOINTMENT. HAS HE FORGOTTEN HOW TO WRITE? 28. Januar 2010
Von Anne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is another Cotton Malone adventure with the usual cast of characters. The plot starts slow and remains slow for most of the novel. This is another letdown, it lacks detail and excitement, and the characters are not fully developed.
I love a good thriller unfortunately this was not one, I have enjoyed most of the Malone books, but the last two efforts are tedious reading, lacking suspense or excitement. Not worth the price if purchased new as I did. ` Berry `disappointed with this novel.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good Grief 30. Dezember 2011
Von B. Oakes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm so glad I didn't buy this book--I checked it out from the public library instead. I think the author made the mistake of venturing into the Napoleon treasure nonsense. It would have been much better if the author had stuck to the theme of global financial manipulation as it is so relevant to today--and scary.

Also, I have to note one of my pet peeves about international intrigue books with American main characters. It annoys me to no end when American characters on foreign soil are always the heroes while the locals are given minor background roles. While American security personnel do have some clout with it's allies, I have no doubt in my mind that the French authorities would ever allow an American agent to virtually "call the shots" much less be the first to look upon a lost treasure of Napoleon.
