In The Charlemagne Pursuit (New York: Ballantine Books-Random House, 2008), as in The Alexandria Link, Steve Berry included a lot of politics, which I didn’t enjoy very much. It was fascinating, though, how he tied together a first civilization, Charlemagne, the Nazis, submarines, and Antarctica.
In his “Writer’s Note” (505-09), Berry lists some books that might be interesting:
- Gerry Kennedy and Rob Churchill, The Voynich Manuscript
- Christopher Knight and Alan Butler, Civilization One
Berry’s latest book, The Paris Vendetta, is due out December 1. I’m number 19 of 35 people who have requested it from the Jefferson County Public Library.
