Genre: Fiction

What happens if both the president and vice-president-elect die before taking the oath of office? The answer is far from certain—in fact, what follows would be nothing short of total political chaos. Shot down over Siberia, ex-Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is forced into a fight for survival against Aleksandr Zorin, a man whose loyalty to the former Soviet Union has festered for decades into an intense hatred of the United States. Before escaping, Malone learns that Zorin and another ex-KGB officer, this one a sleeper still embedded in the West, are headed overseas to Washington D.C. Noon on January 20th—Inauguration Day—is only hours away. A flaw in the Constitution, and an even more flawed presidential succession act, have opened the door to disaster and Zorin intends to exploit both weaknesses to their fullest. Armed with a weapon leftover from the Cold War, one long thought to be just a myth, Zorin plans to attack. He’s aided by a shocking secret hidden in the archives of America’s oldest fraternal organization—the Society of Cincinnati—a group that once lent out its military savvy to presidents, including helping to formulate three invasion plans of what was intended to be America’s 14th colony—Canada. In a race against the clock that starts in the frozen extremes of Russia and ultimately ends at the White House itself, Malone must not only battle Zorin, he must also confront a crippling fear that he’s long denied, but which now jeopardizes everything. Steve Berry’s trademark mix of history and speculation is all here in this provocative new thriller.

Genre: Fiction

The first case of New York Times bestseller Steve Berry’s iconic hero, Cotton Malone. History notes that the ugly feud between J. Edgar Hoover and Martin Luther King, Jr., marked by years of illegal surveillance and the accumulation of secret files, ended on April 4, 1968 when King was assassinated by James Earl Ray. But that may not have been the case. Now, fifty years later, former Justice Department agent, Cotton Malone, must reckon with the truth of what really happened that fateful day in Memphis. It all turns on an incident from eighteen years ago, when Malone, as a young Navy lawyer, is trying hard not to live up to his burgeoning reputation as a maverick. When Stephanie Nelle, a high-level Justice Department lawyer, enlists him to help with an investigation, he jumps at the opportunity. But he soon discovers that two opposing forces—the Justice Department and the FBI—are at war over a rare coin and a cadre of secret files containing explosive revelations about the King assassination, information that could ruin innocent lives and threaten the legacy of the civil rights movement’s greatest martyr. Malone’s decision to see it through to the end —— from the raucous bars of Mexico, to the clear waters of the Dry Tortugas, and ultimately into the halls of power within Washington D.C. itself —— not only changes his own life, but the course of history. Steve Berry always mines the lost riches of history —— in The Bishop's Pawn he imagines a gripping, provocative thriller about an American icon.

Ο υποδιοικητής χαμογέλασε όταν σκέφτηκε την ομοιότητα που ένιωθε ότι υπήρχε ανάμεσα σ’ εκείνον και στον ιχνηλάτη σκύλο».Ο Ρόκκο Σκιαβόνε είχε μανία να παρομοιάζει με ζώο κάθε ανθρώπινη φυσιογνωμία που συναντούσε μπροστά του. Περισσότερο όμως από το σέτερ που προκάλεσε τη σκέψη, ο υποδιοικητής θύμιζε μάλλον κυνηγόσκυλο σπινόνε, δασύτριχο, απεριποίητο και όχι ιδιαίτερα κοινωνικό όπως είναι, πάντα όμως πειθαρχημένο στο ένστικτο του κυνηγού. Ο Σκιαβόνε είναι εριστικός μπάτσος, κάθε άλλο παρά άσπιλος και αμόλυντος, από τη Ρώμη και πιο συγκεκριμένα από το Τραστέβερε, με πληγωμένη ψυχή και αθεράπευτες ενοχές. Στην Αόστα που τον έχουν μεταθέσει, θα προτιμούσε να προφυλάσσει από τη βροχή τα αγαπημένα του Clarks και ν’ απολαμβάνει τις εφήμερες ερωτικές του σχέσεις παρά ν’ αρχίσει άλλη μια έρευνα στις χιονισμένες Άλπεις.Μια γυναίκα, μια σύζυγος που πλησίαζε στο φθινόπωρο της ζωής, βρέθηκε πεθαμένη από την οικιακή βοηθό. Κρεμασμένη από το πολύφωτο ενός δωματίου βυθισμένου στο σκοτάδι. Οι καταστροφές τριγύρω φανερώνουν κλοπή. Ο Ρόκκο δεν πείθεται. Μια σειρά από συμπτώσεις και αποκλίσεις, όπως και το αμφιλεγόμενο πολλών χαρακτήρων, μετατρέπουν σιγά σιγά την εικόνα της ληστείας σε ομιχλώδες τοπίο ανθρώπινου, περιβαλλοντικού και εγκληματικού μυστηρίου.
