NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Four presidents of the United States have been assassinated—in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963—each murder seemingly unrelated. But what if those presidents were all killed for the shocking same reason: a clause contained in the United States Constitution? This is the question faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone. When President Danny Daniels is nearly killed in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks his life to foil the murder—only to find himself at odds with the Commonwealth, a secret society of pirates first assembled during the American Revolution. Racing across the nation and taking to the high seas, Malone and Cassiopeia Vitt must break a secret cipher originally possessed by Thomas Jefferson, unravel a mystery concocted by Andrew Jackson, and unearth a document forged by the Founding Fathers themselves—one powerful enough to make the Commonwealth unstoppable.

Don’t miss Steve Berry’s short story “The Devil’s Gold” and an excerpt from The King's Deception in the back of the book.

The Jefferson key

Steve, I have loved all your books. The plot moves and the story line is great is in this tale.

My only criticism is that you flipped too quickly between stories within the book. After a while it drove me crazy. Please go back to old way of writing.

Hard to follow

I love the historical fiction aspect of this book. However, it is very difficult to follow. I wish there was a key to the characters to refer back to. It seems that character just appear without much introduction. Would like to see a little more character development.
