Now, 160 years later, two factions of what remains of the Knights of the Golden Circle want that lost treasure—one to spend it for their own ends, the other to preserve it. Thrust into this battle is former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone, whose connection to the knights is deeper than he ever imagined. “Berry’s fans will love his latest endeavor as he brings more detail into Malone’s past and how he came to be known as Cotton. …Berry has written another gripping novel.” — Associated Press

DATE WITH DEATH by Julia Chapman
