From the tranquil canals of Bruges, to the elegant rooms of Wawel Castle, to deep beneath the earth into an ancient Polish salt mine, Malone is caught in the middle of a deadly war—the outcome of which turns on a secret known as the Warsaw Protocol.


Praise for Scott Brick as Cotton Malone:

CHAPTER ONE


TUESDAY, JUNE 4

Praise for The Warsaw Protocol

Advance Praise for The Warsaw Protocol

“Berry once again shows there’s no working author more skilled at combining thrilling adventure with engrossing historical detail.” — Publishers Weekly

"Berry has called Dan Brown and raised him, taking the lead in the big-money game of the religious-relic thriller." —Booklist

Praise for Steve Berry

“The intrigue is intense . . . . Thriller fans will have their violence fix, but the real fun is in learning about the inner workings of the church, its history dating all the way back to Constantine, and the troubled past of Malta . . . . This one will appeal to Dan Brown fans and anyone else in the mood for a page-turning yarn.” —Kirkus Reviews on The Malta Exchange

"[Berry] really is very good at the historical-conspiracy thriller; he’s a skilled writer—much more so than Dan Brown, to whom he's often compared—and a more dexterous plotter than many of his contemporaries. Fans of the Malone series will give this one an enthusiastic thumbs-up.” — Booklist on The Malta Exchange

"The Lost Order, Steve Berry’s latest Cotton Malone adventure, combines the history of a secret society with a look inside the Smithsonian Institution —and it’s terrific. Berry has written another gripping novel.” —Jeff Ayers, Associated Press (USA Today, Washington Post, ABC News) on The Lost Order

“Another terrific blend of history and thrills.” —Library Journal “Best of 2017” on The Lost Order
