"The 16th Amendment to the Constitution legalized federal income tax, but what if there were problems with the 1913 ratification of that amendment? Problems that call into question decades of tax collecting, and could even bring down the US economy. There is a surprising truth to this possibility a truth wholly entertained by Steve Berry, a top-ten New York Times bestselling writer, in his new thriller, The Patriot Threat. His protagonist, Cotton Malone, once a member of an elite intelligence division within the Justice Department known as the Magellan Billet, is now retired. But when his former boss, Stephanie Nelle, asks him to track a rogue North Korean who may have acquired some top secret Treasury Department files the kind that could bring the United States to its knees. Malone is vaulted into a harrowing twenty-four-hour chase that begins on the water in Venice and ends in the remote highlands of Croatia. With appearances by Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Mellon, and a curious painting that still hangs in the National Gallery of Art, Steve Berry's trademark mix of history and suspense is 90% fact and 10% exciting speculation, a provocative thriller that poses a dangerous question. What if the federal income tax is illegal?"--Publisher.… (mer)

Very appropriate read with Tax day just around the corner. Love his commentaries at the end showing the facts behind the fiction. This one has alot of relevance. Couple redundancies but otherwise another one that makes him the great writer that he is. ( )

I must say this is not my favorite Cotton Malone novel. It was obvious that the author did a lot of research before putting this story on paper. Research into Andrew Mellon, The 16th Amendment and ratification procedures, as well as research on George Mason was very evident, but all that background information slowed the book to a crawl in too many spots. The bad guy was a disinherited heir to the North Korean dictatorship and his illegitimate daughter. The story takes place in both the US featuring Magellan Billet boss, Stephanie, and it follows Cotton Malone plus 2 other agents from Venice to Croatia. Everyone is in search of documents involving a riddle with origins in 1913, a problem that could effectively put the Inited States out of business for good. Although the premise was interesting, the story just got too bogged down with history and detail. ( )

read about halfway through and the majority of that was all rehashing the first 10 or so books without moving the story very fast. I think I'm done with this series if it's only going to rehash everything each book. the characters used to be interesting and now they're just whiny if they were real people, I would deep-six them from my life

Franklin Roosevelt hated being in the same room with his infamous visitor, but he appreciated the need for them to talk.
