History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel, and his newest book, The Patriot Threat, is no exception. 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 one dollar bill, his newest story poses a dangerous question: What if the Federal income tax is illegal? When Berry’s popular character, Cotton Malone, is asked to track a rogue North Korean who may have acquired some top secret Treasury Department files, he is vaulted into a harrowing twenty-four hour chase that begins on the canals in Venice and ends in the remote highlands of Croatia.
