Description

Steve Berry's New York Times bestseller, The Patriot Threat, finds Cotton Malone racing to stop a rogue ex-KGB agent plotting revenge against the United States.
The 16th Amendment to the Constitution is why Americans pay income taxes. But what if there were problems associated with that amendment? Secrets that call into question decades of tax collecting? In fact, there is a surprising truth to this hidden possibility.
Cotton Malone, once a member of an elite intelligence division within the Justice Department known as the Magellan Billet, is now retired and owns an old bookshop in Denmark. But when his former-boss, Stephanie Nelle, asks him to track a rogue North Korean who may have acquired some top secret Treasury Department files—the kind that could bring the United States to its knees—Malone is vaulted into a harrowing twenty-four hour chase that begins on the canals in Venice and ends in the remote highlands of Croatia.
With appearances by Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Mellon, a curious painting that still hangs in the National Gallery of Art, and some eye-opening revelations from the $1 bill, this riveting, non-stop adventure is trademark Steve Berry—90% historical fact, 10% exciting speculation—a provocative thriller posing a dangerous question: What if the Federal income tax is illegal?

        Bestseller Berry comes up with a highly unusual premise for his 10th Cotton Malone thriller (after 2014���s The Lincoln Myth): a historical flaw in the U.S. income tax code has the potential to destroy the country���s economy. In Berry���s timely what-if scenario, North Korean leader Kim Yong Jin has been dropped from the line of dynastic succession because of a disgraceful abortive trip to Tokyo Disneyland. Kim, now known as a playboy, sees an opportunity to regain his former glory when he stumbles on a 1936 mystery involving then secretary of the treasury Andrew Mellon and president Franklin Roosevelt. Kim���s accidental but fortuitous reading of a book about the American tax code, The Patriot Threat, written by tax resister Anan Wayne Howell, puts him on the path of the mystery, which he, along with his warrior daughter, Hana, are determined to solve, no matter how many people they have to kill to do so. Fans of political conspiracy fiction will find plenty to like. Agent: Simon Lipskar, Writers House.

        Beloved Berry protagonist Cotton Malone is asked to track down a rogue North Korean possibly possessing some hush-hush Treasury Department files. The plot hinges on whether the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, which legalizes federal income tax, was properly ratified. A one-day laydown.

        A powerful North Koreana (fictional) son of former dictator Kim Jong-ilplots to destroy America. His weapon: highly classified, incendiary U.S. Treasury Department files that he has recently acquired through, shall we say, violently improper channels. And even though it strains credibility just a bit, only Cotton Malone, the retired intelligence operative, can stop the madman. The latest Malone thriller offers the usual ingredients: likable hero, despicable villain, plenty of action, and a story that draws on a historical mystery and conspiracy. Here, Berry tackles a subject that is much debated by a small segment of the American population even today, the notion that the American federal income tax system might be illegal. Keep in mind, please, that this is a novel, not a treatise, and Berry can have his characters say and do whatever he likes. That said, he presents a plausible if wildly unlikely scenario, plausible enough that we realize Cotton Malone isn't just trying to stop a madmanhe's trying to save the U.S. A solid entry in an entertaining and wildly successful series. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With 19 million copies sold, Berry's high-concept thrillers have proved irresistible to readers in 51 countries and across 40 languages. His latest will leave the starting blocks with a 400,000-copy announced market distribution.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)

        What if our federal income tax was illegal? Such is the premise around which Berry's tenth Cotton Malone thriller (after The Lincoln Myth) is based. Malone, retired from the Magellan Billet, a special elite unit of the Justice Department, has once again been lured out of retirement to assist in recovering sensitive Treasury Department documents that were stolen by a renegade North Korean. Malone is hot on the trail of Kim Yong Jin, whose agenda is not only to bring the United States to its knees but to overthrow the current leader of North Korea. Documents revealing that the 16th Amendment, which granted Congress authority to establish an income tax, is potentially illegal are at the center of a powerful tug of war that leads from Washington, DC, to Italy to the highlands of Croatia. Cameo appearances by Franklin D. Roosevelt and Andrew Mellon establish the historical background of the secret that could destroy America. VERDICT Berry's fans will not be disappointed as he delivers his usual fast-paced and complex story line, highlighted by his hero's superhuman ability to overcome any obstacle and chase the bad guys to the ends of the earth. [See Prepub Alert, 9/22/14.]--Sandra Knowles, South Carolina State Lib., Columbia
