    I enjoyed listening to this story centered around Dr. Martin Luther King during the 50th anniversary of his assassination. F.B. I. Director, J. Edgar Hoover's bigotry and law violations are exposed to further tarnish his history into well-deserved infamy. Steve Berry's author notes are...

    Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. Cotton Malone is one of my favorite series protagonists of all time. He's brave, he's honest, he's heroic, he's loyal, and he's got depth of character beyond the likes...

    The next chapter in the Cotton Malone series actually backtracks to Cotton's first case when Stephanie Nelle recruits him. This story takes us back through time to a period, when racism and inequality were rampant. I enjoy all of Berry's works thus far, this included, however I woul...

    Wonderful. I was impressed how Berry managed to fit a work of fiction on to an established set of facts. It made the plot plausible. That Martin L King's assassination could have been driven and choreographed by King himself. I enjoyed reading Berry's writers notes; as I followed the s...

    A prequel to the Cotton Malone series, harking back to when Stephanie Nelle recruited him to work for the government, plucking him out of jail for a righteous killing. Cotton is asked to retrieve a case, and finds himself in over his head, without a proper understanding of his mission....

    Interesting read and insight into a little of Mr King. The book also has some introduction into the initiation of Cotton into the Magellan Billet. As with all Steve Berry novels, get ready to have a fictional version of facts with the "facts" at the end... Writers always have that fre...

    I read Steve Berry's books for entertainment. They are fun and I enjoy them and he is an author I follow and collect. My interest is based on the fact that while Berry writes thrillers his stories are usually all premised upon some historic myth, legend, mystery, or event. His stories ...

    When I start reading a Steve Berry book, I can hardly contain my excitement. I know it will be a page turner and I have to resist the urge to devour it in one sitting. His newest novel The Bishop's Pawn was once again another stellar installment in the Cotton Malone series and it took ...

    The Bishop?s Pawn is Steve Berry?s 13th Cotton Malone story. He puts out about one book a year. Keeping a storyline fresh, exciting and interesting for that long is a challenge that many thriller authors aren?t up to. Fortunately for us Steve is! The premise of Bishop?s Pawn i...

    First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Steve Berry, Minotaur Books and St. Martin?s Press for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review. Steve Berry is back to provide readers with another instalment of the Co...

    Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. Cotton Malone is one of my favorite series protagonists of all time. He's brave, he's honest, he's heroic, he's loyal, and he's got depth of character beyond the likes...

    On April 4th 1968 as a shot rang out in Memphis Tennessee striking civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., America was forever changed, and King transformed into a symbol of martyrdom for the movement. Fifty years to that day, the United States is still battling those very demons...

    The next chapter in the Cotton Malone series actually backtracks to Cotton's first case when Stephanie Nelle recruits him. This story takes us back through time to a period, when racism and inequality were rampant. I enjoy all of Berry's works thus far, this included, however I woul...

    Wonderful. I was impressed how Berry managed to fit a work of fiction on to an established set of facts. It made the plot plausible. That Martin L King's assassination could have been driven and choreographed by King himself. I enjoyed reading Berry's writers notes; as I followed the s...

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From the publisher - The first case of New York Times bestseller Steve Berry?s iconic hero, Cotton Malone. History notes that the ugly feud between J. Edgar Hoover and Martin Lu...

    A prequel to the Cotton Malone series, harking back to when Stephanie Nelle recruited him to work for the government, plucking him out of jail for a righteous killing. Cotton is asked to retrieve a case, and finds himself in over his head, without a proper understanding of his mission....

    Interesting read and insight into a little of Mr King. The book also has some introduction into the initiation of Cotton into the Magellan Billet. As with all Steve Berry novels, get ready to have a fictional version of facts with the "facts" at the end... Writers always have that fre...

    ?The Bishops Pawn? is Steve Berry?s thirteenth 13th Cotton Malone story. The premise of the book is that the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover were responsible for the assassination Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The action centers on the events leading up to April 4, 1968, and is as especiall...

    I read Steve Berry's books for entertainment. They are fun and I enjoy them and he is an author I follow and collect. My interest is based on the fact that while Berry writes thrillers his stories are usually all premised upon some historic myth, legend, mystery, or event. His stories ...

    Another historical thriller by Berry. Not as thriller-esque as his previous books. But all in all a good read. ...

    When I start reading a Steve Berry book, I can hardly contain my excitement. I know it will be a page turner and I have to resist the urge to devour it in one sitting. His newest novel The Bishop's Pawn was once again another stellar installment in the Cotton Malone series and it took ...

    The Bishop?s Pawn is Steve Berry?s 13th Cotton Malone story. He puts out about one book a year. Keeping a storyline fresh, exciting and interesting for that long is a challenge that many thriller authors aren?t up to. Fortunately for us Steve is! The premise of Bishop?s Pawn i...

    It seems that Mr. Berry's books are either hit or miss for me. This one I thought would be a total hit for me. Yet, it was a miss. I found the characters and the story to be lacking drama. The story itself regarding a conspiracy involving Martin Luther King Jr. was in itself intriguing...

    Love this character and this writer. Short chapters and lots of action and adventure. This particular book digs up old news inre Martin Luther King. Cotton does the FBI a favor and nearly dies, not to mention those that do die. Shocking ending. Thanks to Mr. Berry and Goodreads. ...

    For some reason, I found this book to be a real snoozer. I had trouble following the action and then it lapsed into boring.i did listen to the book and it might have been better if I had read the book. It just wasn?t up the Cotton Malone standards. ...

    Because I read so much about the Civil Rights Movement and Martin Luther King, Jr., when I read the synopsis of this book, I thought I would like it a lot. Alas, in all honesty, the plot was just too convoluted. A rare coin is missing and documents need to be found. I just could not gr...

    A change of pace in the Cotton Malone series - Berry's newest book is a "flashback" to Malone's first mission for the Justice Department 18 years ago and does a nice job filling in some of the character's backstory. The strength of this series has always been mining the gray areas of h...

    Awful. AWFUL. Did Berry actually write this? The first person was contrived and bulky- most of the sentences were in basic structure and were stuck in a rut of recounting events. In one paragraph containing seven sentences, five began (and a sixth had in the middle) with the following:...

    I am a Cotton Malone fan and this book is the 13th of Berry's series. In the series Berry mixes an adventurous mystery along with a historical mystery setting out possibilities that might have actually happened. I read this book during the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's de...

    The Bishop's Pawn is not my favorite book in the Cotton Malone series. Maybe it was just me, but I had a hard time getting into this story. I was intrigued with the subject matter for this story as it is more than relevant today. For me, this story had too many characters introduce...

    Resonates I should say resonates at last, because this can be a difficult read. The first person requires adjustment, a rookie Cotton Malone requires adjustment, and some of the activity can seem trivial, but I urge every reader to keep going. This book has one of the best endings o...

    E' andata, diciamo così. Ero molto scettica all'inizio, non sono una fan della prima persona, ritengo che dietro l'angolo si nasconda sempre il rischio del tema della prima elementare, ma potevo aver più fiducia nello zio Steve, data la sua esperienza, che se l'è cavata molto bene c...

    Title: The Bishop?s Pawn (A Novel) Author: Steve Berry Pages: 352 Year: 2018 Publisher: Minotaur Books My rating is 5 out of 5 stars. The wonderful joy of reading a story never gets old for me. In fact, there are many times one can find me scouring online retailers for my next ...

    This book will be in my top five of 2018 for sure. As a Black woman, and the daughter of a Black man who weathered Jim Crow, segregation, and The Civil Rights movement -- and TRULY by the grace of God is still alive -- I came to this book with a very high bar set in my mind. My fath...

    THE BISHOP?S PAWN by Steve Berry is both the 13th Cotton Malone story and the first Malone story. This tale is set around the assassination of Martin Luther King, 50 years ago, and the possibility of the FBI?s involvement. Like all of Mr. Berry?s stories, this is actual history...

    In this story, which Steve Berry writes in the first person for the first time, Cotton Malone remembers his first case with Stephanie Nelle, a case very much entangled with the assassination of Martin Luther King, many years before. I thought it an interesting coincidence that I beg...

    It seems that Mr. Berry's books are either hit or miss for me. This one I thought would be a total hit for me. Yet, it was a miss. I found the characters and the story to be lacking drama. The story itself regarding a conspiracy involving Martin Luther King Jr. was in itself intriguing...

    A change of pace in the Cotton Malone series - Berry's newest book is a "flashback" to Malone's first mission for the Justice Department 18 years ago and does a nice job filling in some of the character's backstory. The strength of this series has always been mining the gray areas of h...

    Awful. AWFUL. Did Berry actually write this? The first person was contrived and bulky- most of the sentences were in basic structure and were stuck in a rut of recounting events. In one paragraph containing seven sentences, five began (and a sixth had in the middle) with the following:...

    I read Steve Berry's books for entertainment. They are fun and I enjoy them and he is an author I follow and collect. My interest is based on the fact that while Berry writes thrillers his stories are usually all premised upon some historic myth, legend, mystery, or event. His stories ...

    Another historical thriller by Berry. Not as thriller-esque as his previous books. But all in all a good read. ...

    When I start reading a Steve Berry book, I can hardly contain my excitement. I know it will be a page turner and I have to resist the urge to devour it in one sitting. His newest novel The Bishop's Pawn was once again another stellar installment in the Cotton Malone series and it took ...

    The Bishop?s Pawn is Steve Berry?s 13th Cotton Malone story. He puts out about one book a year. Keeping a storyline fresh, exciting and interesting for that long is a challenge that many thriller authors aren?t up to. Fortunately for us Steve is! The premise of Bishop?s Pawn i...

    It seems that Mr. Berry's books are either hit or miss for me. This one I thought would be a total hit for me. Yet, it was a miss. I found the characters and the story to be lacking drama. The story itself regarding a conspiracy involving Martin Luther King Jr. was in itself intriguing...

    Love this character and this writer. Short chapters and lots of action and adventure. This particular book digs up old news inre Martin Luther King. Cotton does the FBI a favor and nearly dies, not to mention those that do die. Shocking ending. Thanks to Mr. Berry and Goodreads. ...

    For some reason, I found this book to be a real snoozer. I had trouble following the action and then it lapsed into boring.i did listen to the book and it might have been better if I had read the book. It just wasn?t up the Cotton Malone standards. ...

    I am a big fan of Steve Berry's books, especially his Cotton Malone series. I must admit that this particular entry into the series did not impress me as much as the others. It may have to do with Cotton's first foray into life as a secret agent and how he became an employee of the Mag...

    For a retired historian picking up a Steve Berry novel is like revisiting an old friend. Berry?s central character Harold Earl ?Cotton? Malone, lawyer, former member of an elite Justice Department group, pilot, and naval officer, leads the reader through interesting plot lines wi...

    Because I read so much about the Civil Rights Movement and Martin Luther King, Jr., when I read the synopsis of this book, I thought I would like it a lot. Alas, in all honesty, the plot was just too convoluted. A rare coin is missing and documents need to be found. I just could not gr...

    A change of pace in the Cotton Malone series - Berry's newest book is a "flashback" to Malone's first mission for the Justice Department 18 years ago and does a nice job filling in some of the character's backstory. The strength of this series has always been mining the gray areas of h...

    Awful. AWFUL. Did Berry actually write this? The first person was contrived and bulky- most of the sentences were in basic structure and were stuck in a rut of recounting events. In one paragraph containing seven sentences, five began (and a sixth had in the middle) with the following:...

    I am a Cotton Malone fan and this book is the 13th of Berry's series. In the series Berry mixes an adventurous mystery along with a historical mystery setting out possibilities that might have actually happened. I read this book during the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's de...

    The Bishop's Pawn is not my favorite book in the Cotton Malone series. Maybe it was just me, but I had a hard time getting into this story. I was intrigued with the subject matter for this story as it is more than relevant today. For me, this story had too many characters introduce...

    Resonates I should say resonates at last, because this can be a difficult read. The first person requires adjustment, a rookie Cotton Malone requires adjustment, and some of the activity can seem trivial, but I urge every reader to keep going. This book has one of the best endings o...

    E' andata, diciamo così. Ero molto scettica all'inizio, non sono una fan della prima persona, ritengo che dietro l'angolo si nasconda sempre il rischio del tema della prima elementare, ma potevo aver più fiducia nello zio Steve, data la sua esperienza, che se l'è cavata molto bene c...

    Title: The Bishop?s Pawn (A Novel) Author: Steve Berry Pages: 352 Year: 2018 Publisher: Minotaur Books My rating is 5 out of 5 stars. The wonderful joy of reading a story never gets old for me. In fact, there are many times one can find me scouring online retailers for my next ...

    This book will be in my top five of 2018 for sure. As a Black woman, and the daughter of a Black man who weathered Jim Crow, segregation, and The Civil Rights movement -- and TRULY by the grace of God is still alive -- I came to this book with a very high bar set in my mind. My fath...

    THE BISHOP?S PAWN by Steve Berry is both the 13th Cotton Malone story and the first Malone story. This tale is set around the assassination of Martin Luther King, 50 years ago, and the possibility of the FBI?s involvement. Like all of Mr. Berry?s stories, this is actual history...
