Four United States presidents have been assassinated--in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963--each murder seemingly unrelated and separated by time.

But what if those presidents were all killed for the same reason: a clause in the United States Constitution--contained within Article 1, Section 8--that would shock Americans?

This question is what faces former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone in his latest adventure. When a bold assassination attempt is made against President Danny Daniels in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks his life to foil the killing--only to find himself at dangerous odds with the Commonwealth, a secret society of pirates first assembled during the American Revolution. In their most perilous exploit yet, Malone and Cassiopeia Vitt race across the nation and take to the high seas. Along the way they break a secret cipher originally possessed by Thomas Jefferson, unravel a mystery concocted by Andrew Jackson, and unearth a centuries-old document forged by the Founding Fathers themselves, one powerful enough--thanks to that clause in the Constitution--to make the Commonwealth unstoppable.

As always with Steve Berry, you’re educated about significant things while your knuckles are turning white and the pages are flying. Easily Cotton Malone’s most epic, swashbuckling adventure. David Baldacci
  • The Constitution. . . secret codes . . . loads of history. . . AND pirates! What else does anyone need? The Jefferson Key won't just haunt your nights--it'll haunt your life. Cotton Malone is coming back to the scariest place of all: Home. Brad Meltzer

    " Too many characters without enough development "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by John Wadovick | 2/1/2014

    " Never judge a book by it's cover, right? Well I did on this one and didn't regret it. I had never read any of Steve Berry's books before so I was a little behind on some of the character development. However, the story line was fabulous and he did a great job at keeping the pace fast throughout the book. I definitely recommend it. "

    " Great swashbuckling story -- a perfect beach read that moves along and keeps the reader motivated to find out what happens. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Nancy (Colorado) | 1/26/2014

    " I am not a fan of bouncing back and forth between characters. In this book, the author (Berry) goes back and forth about every page and a half or even when the reader turns the page. The short term effect is distracting but the plot and story line does fall into place. "
