The Jefferson Key

The Jefferson Key

The seventh explosive Cotton Malone adventure – the first to be set in America.

Cotton Malone has been called on to defend his country’s safety in many exotic locations around the world, often using his knowledge of history to get to the heart of mysteries and conspiracies stretching back for centuries. But never has the danger been quite so close to home.

A stunning opening sets the tone of explosive action and mind-bending intrigue as Cotton battles an extraordinary group of families whose unseen influence dates back to the pages of the U.S. Constitution – and whose thirst for power is about to be satisfied by the cracking of a code devised by Thomas Jefferson himself.

Reviews

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'
<i>Publisher's Weekly</i>
'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'
<i>Los Angeles Times</i>
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
<i>USA Today</i> on THE CHARLEMAGNE PURSUIT
'Pure intrigue. Pure fun.'
Clive Cussler on Steve Berry
Action-packed, fast paced and engaging
<i>Sunday Express</i> on THE VENETIAN BETRAYAL
For several years, Steve Berry has been an ace practitioner among those writers who would pleasurably rob us of sleep . . . Berry has proved himself an adroit practitioner of the Dan Brown-style adventure novel, full of colour and energy.
