1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Gail Cooke TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 15 2012
Format: Audio CD
It seems every positive adjective available has been used to describe film, television and radio performer Scott Brick. And, for my money, they're all on target. He's simply one of the best voice performers; he brings reality, excitement and drama to his narrations. He has lots of explosive material to work with in Steve Berry's THE COLUMBUS AFFAIR.

So, settle back and consider a question - was Christopher Columbus Jewish? The answer to that question is of import as Berry's pulse pounding plot reveals. A formerly esteemed investigative journalist, Tom Sagan, is as close to suicide as possible and still be breathing. His life and career are in tatters - a news story from the Mideast has been seen as fraudulent and there is no way he can prove that the charge was orchestrated by an unknown enemy. Sagan has had to return his Pulitzer, his daughter, Alle Becket, no long speaks to him, he has become a pariah.

Enter rich Austrian Jew Zachariah Simon who believes that Columbus died knowing the location of a Jamaican gold mine. He also believes that Sagan is the one man who can help him find the gold so, of course, Simon wants his help. Sagan will help for the simple reason that Simon holds his daughter prisoner (or so a video purports to show). Intriguing? You bet!

Thus begins a torturous trek throughout the world, beginning in Florida, moving on to Vienna and Prague and finally to a mountainous region of Jamaica. The stakes are unbelievably high, but not for gold alone.

Enjoy!

As usual, Steve Berry doesn't disappoint. Love all his books, lots of historical data, and where it isn't historic he has the common sense to tell us. Very well done Steve

Not one of his best. Ending pretty predictable. Prefer the Cotton Malone series. Did like how Berry does author comments at end to define fact from fiction

THE ADMIRAL'S MARK by author Steve Berry is a good short story mystery, thriller that's gripping and well-written.

Scott Brown is the brother-in-law of Cotton Malone, an ex-agent for the DOJ. He dies under mysterious circumstances while scuba diving in Haiti. The police give their report, but Cotton's sister and wife isn't buying it, so he travels to Haiti to find the truth. He discovers that Scott had come upon the sunken wreakage of the old Christopher Columbus ship, the Santa Maria.

The novella is packed with gripping suspense, action and heart-stopping moments. Highly recommended.

Recommended by my brother as a fabulous book and a must read, as we just returned from a vacation in Jamaica and were very familiar with the area of St. Ann's , Runaway and Discovery Bay. Very fast moving, and added to the history of the Island including an historical and present day perspective. It was an enjoyable, engaging book!
