In 323 B.C.E, having conquered Persia, Alexander the Great set his sights on Arabia, then suddenly succumbed to a strange fever. Locating his final resting place-unknown to this day-remains a tantalizing goal for both archaeologists and treasure hunters. Now the quest for this coveted prize is about to heat up. And Cotton Malone-former U.S. Justice Department agent turned rare-book dealer-will be drawn into an intense geopolitical chess game. After narrowly escaping incineration in a devastating fire that consumes a Danish museum, Cotton learns from his friend, the beguiling adventurer Cassiopeia Vitt, that the blaze was neither an accident nor an isolated incident. As part of campaign of arson intended to mask a far more diabolical design, buildings across Europe are being devoured by infernos of unnatural strength.

Long winded. The writer will describe a situatuibon in 15 words when 3 would have sufficed.

The Venetian Betrayal is similar in style to the novels of James Rollins to the point that Berry even mentions Rollins’ Sigma Force. It’s a good solid techno-thriller with an evil central Asian despot as the enemy, crosses, and double-crosses. The novel was exciting enough. I found the use of CE and BCE instead of AD and BC annoying due to Berry’s inconsistency. I respect an author’s right to use these politically correct designations but not while he’s using the Christian church and the alleged body of St. Mark while referring to centuries “before Christ.” I listened to the CD version and the Danish accent wasn’t bad although the other accents blended together to sound rather non-descript Russian. This was my first exposure to this series and I plan to read more but it’s not on top of my priority list.
