I love to read and I enjoy finding new books to try which is one reason I participate in Book Beginnings. Head on over to Rose City Reader for this great link up party.
Today’s beginning comes from “The Venetian Betrayal” by Steve Berry which is the 3rd book in the Cotton Malone series.
”The smell roused Cotton Malone to consciousness. Sharp, acrid, with a hint of sulfur. And Something else. Sweet and sickening. Like death.”
Wonder what Cotton has gotten himself into now? As a former government agent turned antique book dealer, his life is full of adventures.
The Cotton Malone books remind me somewhat of the Robert Langdon books written by Dan Brown. They are full history, intrigue and colorful characters. I have enjoyed all that I have read and plan on reading the whole series.
