His books have been translated into 40 languages with 17,000,000 copies in 51 countries.

History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel. It's his passion, one he shares with his wife, Elizabeth, which led them to create History Matters, a foundation dedicated to historic preservation.

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; the 2013 Barnes & Noble Writers for Writers Award; his novel The Columbus Affair earned him the Anne Frank Human Writes Award; and International Thriller Writers bestowed him the 2013 Silver Bullet for his work with historic preservation. A 2010 NPR survey named The Templar Legacy one of the top 100 thrillers ever written.

Steve 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars BERRY AT HIS BEST 13 Jan 2010
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
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!

- Gail Cooke

By Amelrode TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
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 out of 5 stars Another great read from Steve Berry 1 May 2011
Format:Paperback
Another great read from Steve Berry. If you want a plot synopsis - lots of the other reviews will give you this. If you are new to Steve Berry DO NOT start with this book. The Paris Vendetta forms part of the Cotton Malone Series, a friend read a random book from the series and wished he'd started in order. This book has all that you'd expect from Steve Berry -a historical twist and turn plot with suspense throughout. This book sees a few new Characters come to the forefront - will they appear in the next book? Who knows? It also says goodbye to a main character from the series - of which Berry may regret.
Overall, a great read with great descriptions of locations and well written.

The Series:
1. The Templar Legacy
2. The Alexandria Link
3. The Venetian Betrayal
4. The Charlemagne Pursuit
5. The Paris Vendetta
6. The Emperor's Tomb

Stand alone books: The Third Secret, The Amber Room & The Romanov Prophecy,

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite... 18 Nov 2010
By Simon Tavener VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I have enjoyed the previous Malone novels from Steve Berry. They are up there with the best of the Da Vinci clone genre. Some people might say that doesn't mean much - but for quick, entertaining reads, they suit me just fine.

This one seems a bit flat compared to the others in the series. The setting is more predictable, the excitement levels not quite so high.

Also the whole Merovingian thing has been done to death...

It is still fun enough and I will buy the next - but still not quite as good as I was hoping.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Holiday Read 7 Oct 2010
By etak110
Format:Paperback
If you love a good mystery with an intelligent mind behind it then this is the one for you; super for the holiday `sun lounger'. Well plotted, structured and written, which in today's market is rare. There is just the right mix of research and historical embellishment to get the reader to engage with the story fully. Having read all of Berry's novels now, I am looking forward to his next, which I believe has a Chinese theme. Have recommended his books to others and been thanked for doing so, hence the review. Go ahead, buy and enjoy you won't regret it.
