Simon St. James and his wife, Deborah, are called to the island of Guernsey in the English Channel to help solve the mystery of the death of Guy Brouard, one of Guernsey's wealthiest inhabitants. China River, Deborah's friend, has been arrested for the murder, and her brother Cherokee has called them to come and investigate and try to clear her. There are other possible suspects the St. Jameses look at for the murder. Forced as a child to flee the Nazis in Paris, Brouard was working on opening a museum honoring those in Guernsey who resisited the German occupation of the island during World War II when he died. Everyone on the island seems to have something to hide, and the book takes several twists and turns before the killer is found. This is a long book, but worth reading.


The Templar Legacy (Cotton Malone, Bk 1) (Audio CD) (Abridged)
Review Date: 12/3/2014


This book reminds me of the Da Vinci code, with a chase to discover treasure owned by the Knights Templar, and lost centuries ago. It was a good book to listen to on CD in the car. Not the best action adventure book I've ever read, but enough to keep my attention. I will probably keep reading Steve Berry's books.

This is a mystery thriller in which the two protagonists stumble upon a strange experiment of hybrid human bird-like children at a lab hidden in the mountains in Colorado. It is very fast-moving and action-packed. The sequel to this book is the Lake House.
