About this book

Book Summary

In 323 B.C.E, having conquered Persia, Alexander the Great set his sights on Arabia, then suddenly succumbed to a strange fever. Locating his final resting place – unknown to this day – remains a tantalizing goal for both archaeologists and treasure hunters. Now the quest for this coveted prize is about to heat up. And Cotton Malone –former U.S. Justice Department agent turned rare-book dealer – will be drawn into an intense geopolitical chess game.

The Venetian Betrayal
Despite the good historical links and unusual plot, I am totally put off by Berry's disdain of proper English grammar. Sentence fragments are not "style," they're a laziness and a short cut to actually expressing complete thoughts. I am so irritated with this, I won't finish the book and will avoid his work from no on.
