Steve Berry returns to perfection with his latest effort The 14th Colony. Motivated by military heroes and foes with the focus on the political and economic structure of the Soviet Union in the 1980's, the 40th president of the United States, Ronald Reagan, joins forces with the pope for a secretive long term goal to rid communism. Spun from this attempt of setting people free comes the fictional brainchild of Steve Berry. The reader is fast forwarded to the present where old relics are uncovered, KGB and GRU agents resurface, and U.S. operatives are dangerously stranded behind enemy lines. This thriller is a pleaser for action page turner fans of all kinds.
