"What happens if both the president and vice-president-elect die before taking the oath of office? The answer is far from certain--in fact, what follows would be nothing short of total political chaos. Shot down over Siberia, ex-Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is forced into a fight for survival against Aleksandr Zorin, a man whose loyalty to the former Soviet Union has festered for decades into an intense hatred of the United States. Before escaping, Malone learns that Zorin and another ex-KGB officer, this one a sleeper still embedded in the West, are headed overseas to Washington D.C. Inauguration Day--noon on January 20th--is only hours away. A flaw in the Constitution, and an even more flawed presidential succession act, have opened the door to disaster and Zorin intends to exploit both weaknesses to their fullest. Armed with a weapon leftover from the Cold War, one long thought to be just a myth, Zorin plans to attack. He's aided by a shocking secret hidden in the archives of America's oldest fraternal organization--the Society of Cincinnati--a group that once lent out its military savvy to presidents, including helping to formulate three invasion plans of what was intended to be America's 14th colony--Canada. In a race against the clock that starts in the frozen extremes of Russia and ultimately ends at the White House itself, Malone must not only battle Zorin, he must also confront a crippling fear that he's long denied, but which now jeopardizes everything. Steve Berry's trademark mix of history and speculation is all here in this provocative new thriller"--… (mer)

The 14th Colony: A Novel is an extremely well researched book that not only has a lot of United States history but is also a great adventure that involved Cotton Malone. The story begins in Siberia and concludes in Washington DC. To say anything more than this would spoil the story. It is a five star adventure, historical novel and very well written from beginning to end. The 14th Colony is highly recommended. ( )

This one renewed my faith on Steve Berry. Very interesting story about lingering bad feelings with some former Russian KBG agents over the consequences of the collapse of the Soviet Union and the revenge they planned on the United States. Felt it was great story and did a very good job of tying in the current political environment in the US with a catastrophic plot to destroy the government and destabilization of the country. Have always enjoy Steve Berry's characters as, while they are not always presented with depth, they fit the story and plot so very well that the reader always feel comfortable with them.

Would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrillers tied in with historical characters and the potential impact of historical actions on todays world. ( )
