Who doesn’t love a good adventure story?  I have gotten hooked on Steve Berry’s Cotton Malone series and can’t wait to get to the next one.  Today, I am bringing you the first lines to The Paris Vendetta:

GIZA PLATEAU, EGYPT
AUGUST 1799

General Napoleon Bonaparte dismounted from his horse and stared up at the pyramid.  Two more lay in succession nearby, but this was the grandest of the three.

I really enjoy how Mr. Berry intertwines actual historical facts with historical myths and completely fiction writing.  Every time I read one of these books, I have to have Google Images on a screen nearby to look up all of the places Cotton travels to.  This book was great fun!
