"In Steve Berry's latest Cotton Malone adventure, one by one the seven precious relics of the Arma Christi, the weapons of Christ, are disappearing from sanctuaries across the world. After former Justice Department agent, Cotton Malone, witnesses the theft of one of them, he learns from his old boss, Stephanie Nelle, that a private auction is about to be held where incriminating information on the president of Poland will be offered to the highest bidder-blackmail that both the United States and Russia want, but for vastly different reasons. The price of admission to that auction is one of the relics, so Malone is first sent to a castle in Poland to steal the Holy Lance, a thousand-year-old spear sacred to not only Christians but to the Polish people, and then on to the auction itself. But nothing goes as planned and Malone is thrust into a bloody battle between three nations over information that, if exposed, could change the balance of power in Europe. From the tranquil canals of Bruges, to the elegant rooms of Wawel Castle, to deep beneath the earth into an ancient Polish salt mine, Malone is caught in the middle of a deadly war-the outcome of which turns on a secret known as the Warsaw Protocol"--

I love these books! I really enjoyed this one as I don’t know much about Easter Europe and it’s history, so this was a fun way to get acquainted with one part of that area of the world. As always, the book is mind-candy, and it’s always fun to read the author’s note at the end to see what is true and what is fiction!

Not very suspenseful and much too wordy. Over detailed at times.

Steve Berry remains one my favorite thriller authors. In THE WARSAW PROTOCOL, he once again has created a great piece of fiction with a real historical and geographic backdrop described in great detail. I try not to do spoilers, but I would point out that if you are interested in Poland or Polish history around which this novel is written, you will probably love this book. Cotton Malone is back and finds himself helping his boss, Stephanie Nelle, navigate the orders coming out of a USA administration with a President who doesn't know what he is doing, and with major international complications and implications. Lastly, once again Berry, following the style of of the great historical fiction author Bernard Cornwell, gives us an 8-page summary at the end separating fact from fiction. To a bit of surprise, I was amazed at how much reality he wove into this complex story.
