"The Lincoln Myth" (Ballantine Books), by Steve Berry

A quick favour plunges former government agent Cotton Malone into a conspiracy with ties to both his personal life and a pivotal moment in American history in Steve Berry's "The Lincoln Myth."

Malone, who has retired to his bookshop in Copenhagen, Denmark, receives a call from his former boss asking him to help another agent grab an informant. Soon bullets are flying. Malone must see the mission to the bitter end, especially since one of the masterminds behind the plot was involved with Cassiopeia, the woman Malone now loves.

Cassiopeia is also on a mission, and it involves getting close to the man she once loved. When evidence demonstrates that her former flame is involved in a deadly plot, can she overcome her doubts to fulfil her mission? Can she trust Malone? And can he trust her?

Malone and Cassiopeia are racing for answers that involve a secret passed down from one U.S. president to the next, starting with George Washington. This secret was passed down by James Buchanan, but died with Abraham Lincoln.

Berry uses his extensive knowledge of law and history for an alternate look at events in U.S. history, and he has delivered a compelling story that's his best novel in years.
