American President Cotton Malone tackles the secrets of Mormonism, a U.S. Senator's stealthy secession plan, and a history-shaping letter that was handed down through the chief executive line. "September 1861: All is not as it seems. With these cryptic words, a shocking secret passed down from president to president comes to rest in the hands of Abraham Lincoln. And as the first bloody clashes of the Civil War unfold, Lincoln alone must decide how best to use this volatile knowledge: save thousands of American lives, or keep the young nation from being torn apart forever? The present: In Utah, the fabled remains of Mormon pioneers whose nineteenth-century expedition across the desert met with a murderous end have been uncovered. In Washington, D.C., the official investigation of an international entrepreneur, an elder in the Mormon church, has sparked a political battle between the White House and a powerful United States senator. In Denmark, a Justice Department agent, missing in action, has fallen into the hands of a dangerous zealot--a man driven by divine visions to make a prophet's words reality. And in a matter of a few short hours, Cotton Malone has gone from quietly selling books at his shop in Denmark to dodging bullets in a high-speed boat chase. All it takes is a phone call from his former boss in Washington, and suddenly the ex-agent is racing to rescue an informant carrying critical intelligence. It's just the kind of perilous business that Malone has been trying to leave behind, ever since he retired from the Justice Department. But once he draws enemy blood, Malone is plunged into a deadly conflict--a constitutional war secretly set in motion more than two hundred years ago by America's Founding Fathers. From the streets of Copenhagen to the catacombs of Salzburg to the rugged mountains of Utah, the grim specter of the Civil War looms as a dangerous conspiracy gathers power. Malone risks life, liberty, and his greatest love in a race for the truth about Abraham Lincoln--while the fate of the United States of America hangs in the balance" --… (more)

I may be swearing off Steve Berry, I wanted to slap every one of the characters in this book, I wanted to scream many time to each "get over it and move the f.. on.

The right of states to succeed from the Union may be important historically, but to take secession as the major plot line in this time was too much for me. Getting the Magellan Billet's top secret team, including a retired Cotton Malone, is a stretch. Too much religion (Church of Latter Day Saints and constitutional law.) Uninteresting characters, and the inexplicable tension between Cassiopeia Vitt and Cotton was annoying. The use of various scripts that were hard to read was VERY unnecessary. Much too long, and Berry roamed from his normal style of offering tidbits of information to keep readers in suspense until the final moments of the novel. Too easy to guess where the unsatisfying ending. ( )

I love this guy!!! The amount of research he must put into a book to come up with the whole premise and put a fictional element into it just amazes me time and time again. Definitely my favorite historical fiction writer!!!
