The Third Secret
By Steve Berry
Bold new jacket to match the UK branding of NYT bestseller THE TEMPLAR LEGACY and Berry's new novel THE ALEXANDRIA LINK
What is the Third Secret?
It is rumoured to be a prediction so shocking that it has been locked away for over eighty years. Could this be what is drawing Pope Clement XV to the Vatican archive, night after sleepless night?
When Father Colin Michener is sent on a secret mission to the highlands of Romania, he is pitched into a vortex of suspicion, deceit, murder and forbidden passion. Suddenly, he is forced to face the very thing that has so distressed the Pope - and to unravel a mystery that will shake the world.
Steve Berry lives on the coast in Georgia, USA, with his wife and daughter. He is a lawyer who has traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, and Russia. His first two novels, THE AMBER ROOM and THE ROMANOV PROPHECY, were US bestsellers; his third, THE THIRD SECRET, was a New York Times bestseller. His books have been translated into over thirty languages.
