Publisher's Summary

A provocative thriller posing a dangerous question: what if federal income tax is illegal?The 16th Amendment to the Constitution legalized federal income tax, but what if there were problems with the 1913 ratification of that amendment? Problems that call into question decades of tax collecting and could even bring down the US economy. There is a surprising truth to this possibility - a truth wholly entertained by Steve Berry, a top-ten New York Times best-selling writer, in his new thriller, The Patriot Threat. His protagonist, Cotton Malone, once a member of an elite intelligence division within the Justice Department known as the Magellan Billet, is now retired. But when his former boss, Stephanie Nelle, asks him to track a rogue North Korean who may have acquired some top-secret Treasury Department files - the kind that could bring the United States to its knees - Malone is vaulted into a harrowing 24-hour chase that begins on the water in Venice and ends in the remote highlands of Croatia. With appearances by Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Mellon, and a curious painting that still hangs in the National Gallery of Art, Steve Berry's trademark mix of history and suspense is 90 percent fact and 10 percent exciting speculation.

    "Fantastic....again!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend the entire Cotton Malone series. In fact, all of Steve Berry's books are fantastic. Think of a mix of Dan Brown and James Bond, then multiply the thrills, spills and intrigue by a factor of ten!


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Scott Brick really has set himself apart from most other narrators. He is exceptional once again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time, I'd do the whole series again, back to back...
