Nine books later he is still following when duty calls. In The Lincoln Myth, he gets a call from his former boss, Stephanie Nelle, and he is once again surrounded by mystery and danger.
Those who follow my reviews know that I love history woven into my thrillers, and Berry rarely disappoints. This time the story involves a mystery dealing with Abraham Lincoln and Mormonism. Berry makes these strange connections work, and the story is fun to follow.
He also includes questions about the constitution, making us wonder if it is perhaps less than perfect.
I am also a lover of philosophy, and I enjoyed the philosophical questions that arise as the story unfolds. There are surely a number of ways to look at most issues, even though our twenty-first century politicians probably wouldn't agree with me.
For those who are fans of Cotton, this book will be a fun read. The old characters appear, and new ones are introduced, and Cotton usually comes out on top. On a personal note, I would love to see another stand alone from Berry next time. I want something to grab me the way that The Amber Room did all those years ago.
