Cotton Malone series (Book 16 of 16)


Reviewed by Shirley Wetzel

Few people alive know what happened in the Führerbunker on April 30, 1945. It is certain Adolf Hitler took his own life. Probably. His wife of two days, a pregnant Eva Braun, died as well. His right-hand man, Martin Bormann, was thought to have died trying to escape Germany, although his death was never confirmed.

Now, decades later, information has reached the current German Chancellor, Marie Eisenhuth, that threatens to impact the upcoming election and re-write the history of the Nazi regime. She turns to her good friend, former president and current United States Senator Danny Daniels, for assistance in finding the man who supplied the advice. He calls on Cotton Malone, former Justice Department agent, current retired bookshop owner, and problem solver, and Cotton’s partner, the equally talented Cassiopeia Vitt, to track down the mystery man who supplied the long-buried secret documents.

Their search for the truth takes them across the globe, from Belarus to Poland, across the Atlantic to South America, and on to South Africa. They survive a plane crash, escape a bombing, and stay one step ahead of persons unknown who will stop at nothing to keep the past in the past.

Mr. Berry’s thrillers are known for high-intensity action, nail-biting suspense, intriguing characters in exotic places, mixed with a healthy serving of historical detail.  THE KAISER’S WEB is no exception. Recommended.
