Janel’s #CBR4 Review 47 The Jefferson Key by Steve Berry
I got to hear Steve Berry talk earlier this year in Dallas and I have read some of his stand alone books in recent months as well. This was the first Cotton Malone book I had read in a while. Berry throws the reader and the main character right into the action from the first couple of chapters.
I enjoyed the local DC setting for part of the book. Some of the plot twists seemed a little obvious and a little stretched and I felt the ending was a overdone. There was a lot of backstabbing and switching of “sides” as the book progresses. I can see how Dan Brown is still an influence on Berry’s writing.
