Familiar. It could be that Steve Berry’s recurring protagonist, Cotton Malone, has started to grow on me. The sixth and latest thriller to feature the former Department of Justice hero is titled The Paris Vendetta, and reprises the Danish billionaire Henrik Thorvaldsen who wants to find out who killed his son. So, Cotton is hauled out of his Copenhagen bookstore on another adventure. Along the way there’s a search for Napoleon’s secret treasure. Berry isn’t a terrific writer, but readers who like a quick-to-read thriller might find a few entertaining hours reading this one.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
