The Patriot Threat

Steve Berry. Minotaur, $27 (400p) ISBN 978-1-250-05623-8
Bestseller Berry comes up with a highly unusual premise for his 10th Cotton Malone thriller (after 2014’s The Lincoln Myth): a historical flaw in the U.S. income tax code has the potential to destroy the country’s economy. In Berry’s timely what-if scenario, North Korean leader Kim Yong Jin has been dropped from the line of dynastic succession because of a disgraceful abortive trip to Tokyo Disneyland. Kim, now known as a playboy, sees an opportunity to regain his former glory when he stumbles on a 1936 mystery involving then secretary of the treasury Andrew Mellon and president Franklin Roosevelt. Kim’s accidental but fortuitous reading of a book about the American tax code, The Patriot Threat, written by tax resister Anan Wayne Howell, puts him on the path of the mystery, which he, along with his warrior daughter, Hana, are determined to solve, no matter how many people they have to kill to do so. Fans of political conspiracy fiction will find plenty to like. Agent: Simon Lipskar, Writers House. (Mar.)
