Thomas Jefferson -- fiction
Every once in a while a patron will call me to tell me how much they enjoyed a book. Now I have a blog to share these sentiments with you. The Jefferson Key (DB 73400) by Steve Berry is a book that received a glowing endorsement from a patron.
Steve Berry has written a series of books using the character of Cotton Malone, a former Justice Department operative, who gets caught up in historical mysteries. In the newest book of the series, four presidents have been assassinated. Were the assassinations unrelated or were the presidents all murdered for the same reason? After saving the current president from an assassination plot, Cotton Malone realizes that he has angered a secret society. The hunt for that society leads him on a fast-paced chase that is highly thrilling.
Berry always does incredible research for his novels and even lets the reader know what is fiction and nonfiction at the end of the book. If you are looking for a good conspiracy theory, this might be it!
