Why read it?

2 authors picked The Templar Legacy as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I first discovered author Steve Berry with the publication of his excellent novel, The Templar Legacy, one of a series involving Cotton Malone, a retired security operative turned conspiracy investigator. Berry weaves a complex story about the lost treasures of the medieval Knights Templar, and their modern-day attempts to regain power. As in all of Berry’s books, there is a well-researched historical background, plenty of plot twists, and, of course, murders. I particularly like Berry’s attention to historical detail, his rich description, and sense of fatality. Berry’s writing inspired me enough to ask him to be a cover reviewer…

I owe a lot to Steve Berry. He was local to the area I lived in when I started writing. I was in the same critique group, albeit at a different time, as Berry. I had met him several times and listened to his stories of how he got started writing. Around the time I finished my first manuscript, post-editing, Berry made The New York Times bestseller list. When he was doing a local book signing, I approached him, manuscript in hand, and asked if he'd be kind enough to read it and tell me what he thought of it.…
