I finished reading yesterday The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry. It is the third book of the Cotton Malone book series. There are 12 books in the series.
Warning: there is some violence.
The past two books I read of Steve Berry’s dealt with the Bible. This one deals with Alexander The Great, the Iliad, and HIV. Yes, a weird combination. In Venetian Betrayal, Cotton is forced back into trouble. He is asked by Cassiopeia Vitt to a museum. The museum, though, is set ablaze with a special type of fire. He barely escapes alive. Cassiopeia Vitt tells him that she and a special friend of hers are on the quest to find Alexander The Great’s grave and to stop another woman from finding it and causing a huge war. That other woman is obsessed with The Iliad and Alexander The Great. One of her associates has found a cure for every disease, especially HIV. It is learned that Cassiopeia Vitt has HIV. Cotton and others do find Alexander The Great’s grave and the cure. Cassiopeia Vitt and her friend drink the cure.
I really liked this book. I do wish that cure wasn’t fictional though. Now I’m listening to The Charlemagne Pursuit by Steve Berry.
