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
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!
