Review

The Constitution . . . secret codes . . . loads of history . . . AND pirates! What else does anyone need? The Jefferson Key won't just haunt your nights--it'll haunt your life. Cotton Malone is coming back to the scariest place of all: Home. (Brad Meltzer)

One of the most spellbinding and ingenious openings in all of thrillerdom. The cast of characters is huge but every one of them is memorable. The action is intense and masterfully choreographed. As always with Steve Berry, you're educated about significant things while your knuckles are turning white and the pages are flying. Easily Cotton Malone's most epic, swashbuckling adventure. (David Baldacci)

THE JEFFERSON KEY starts with a bang and holds the reader in its grip until the last page. Fascinating American history, up-to-the-minute politics, pulse-pounding action. (Vince Flynn)

'Ingeniously plotted . . . Berry offers plenty of twists and vivid action scenes in a feat of historical imagination' (Publisher's Weekly)

'Berry builds on actual historical facts to create a no-holds-barred thriller guaranteed to increase the pulse of the reader' (The Associated Press)

'[a] page turner' (Los Angeles Times)

A top-notch, gripping, intelligent thriller in the very finest traditions of the genre (Peter James on THE PARIS VENDETTA)

You don't just read a Steve Berry novel. You live it. (James Rollins)

Steve Berry always finds intriguing ways to link the past to the present in his fast-paced thrillers. (Harlan Coben on THE PARIS VENDETTA)

All the Berry hallmarks are here: scale, scope, sweep, history - plus breathless second-by-second suspense. I love this guy. (Lee Child on THE PARIS VENDETTA)

Sexy, illuminating...my kind of thriller (Dan Brown on THE AMBER ROOM)

In Malone, Berry has created a classic, complex hero (USA Today on THE CHARLEMAGNE PURSUIT)

'Pure intrigue. Pure fun.' (Clive Cussler on Steve Berry)

Action-packed, fast paced and engaging (Sunday Express on THE VENETIAN BETRAYAL)

So... one review for and one review against... so where do i come in!??

For of course... Its like the old arguments about adventure films... oh that was rubbish the plot had no substance it was all flashy effects, boobs and bangs...SO! that's what is to be expected of certain types of films.

and in the case of These books its what you should be expecting, they are fast paced action novels that stretch the bounds of reality past breaking point to take the reader on a ride that is so far from reality that they forget reality for a while.
This was what i wanted after reading 3 roman books back to back, something to clean the palate something that required no thinking, that contained good fun characters, a plot that was not too taxing but took the reader along at a high pace, with a smattering of reality that ust makes the plot plausible.

Its a brain off thrill ride, as the majority of Cotton Malone books have been!... i knew what i was getting when i parted with my cash and i wasn't disappointed... if you are thinking of buying this and getting Tolstoy, well you have wasted your time, if you think Matthew Riley, Andy McDermott, Clive Cussler then you are in the right ball park.

Its fun enjoy the ride

Typical Steve Berry, this book pulls you straight in at a run. From there, the pace continues, hurtling the plot backwards and forwards over more than a hundred years.
Reading the short story, The devil's Gold first will help you to understand the annimosity that Wyatt has towards Cotton Malone and so will give a better insight to the plot.
Pirates, the kidnap of a key character, attempted assassination, Malone's arrest ... all thisoccurs in the first few chapters ~with plenty of excitement to follow.
An enjoyable read

This is great - a tremendous story teller who delves into history ... narrates a compelling tale - and then confesses the fictional parts at the end! Yes, it does bring the past to life, and -- being human - I have no difficulty separating the fact/ myth/ fiction: these tales are a huge bonus to understanding something more of the past, and very welcome. True - as a minor criticism - there are the occasional jumps, and I have to think sometimes on, 'Who said that?' ... but these are very minor quibbles. This is great!

I enjoyed the story. Action packed and it drew me in - I just couldn't put it down. There were so many twists and turns, it kept me on my toes. With so many links in the 'real world' it was believable that something like that could happen. I enjoyed how each of the characters played off of/complimented each other in the story and the terror that some of them created. I've already recommended this to friends and to my daughter. I've read other books by Steve Berry and this did not disappoint at all- it was good to read more about familiar characters.

By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 Mar. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is an entertaining, page turning thriller, featuring recurring character Cotton Malone and his now main squeeze, Cassiopeia Vitt. Cotton, a former agent with the Justice Department, is on a weekend jaunt in New York City with Cassiopeia, when he receives a mysterious summons, purportedly from his former boss, Stephanie Nelle. When he responds, he is thrust into the maelstrom of a fight that has a historical basis and involves pirates and privateers.

Mixing history with fiction, the author delivers an intricate, densely plotted thriller that will grip the reader's imagination. With facts torn from the fabric of United States history, the author weaves an elaborate tale that will delight those who enjoy conspiracy theories, as well as those who enjoy an action packed, fast paced story with intriguing characters. Presidential assassinations, secret ciphers and codes, and the United States Constitution all figure prominently and are well integrated in the plot.

This is most definitely a plot driven book, and while the characters are interesting, there is little time spent on character development. Those readers who are history buffs, however, will most definitely enjoy the historical underpinning of the plot. Moreover, the writer's notes at the end of the book are worth mentioning, because in them the author details what is actually factual in the book. It is a very neat and interesting historical synopsis that only adds to one's enjoyment of the book.

This is a fast-paced thriller with another explanation of who really holds power in the US (and who killed several US presidents). It revolves around decryphing clues to find the missing pages that would legitimise privateers in the US, who are ruthless and power hungry. It is a real "goodies and baddies" story that offers lots of action, even if, at times, it crosses the border of credibility. But if you just want a good page turner, with a light twist on the Da Vinci Code, then this does the job. However beware it has the Dan Brown habit of flipping between different elements of the story on a regular basis.
