Summary

The Devil always gets his due.

Once he was called the Sphinx, a man so inscrutable that neither his adversaries nor fellow intelligence operatives could predict his next move. Now a contract agent with a secret mission, Jonathan Wyatt has gone rogue. For eight years he's been plotting. Waiting. Scheming to kill Federal agents Christopher Combs and Cotton Malone, whom he blames for the loss of his career. But as Wyatt prepares for a final confrontation in a remote South American village, he makes a discovery that stretches back to the horrors of World War II, to the astounding secret of a child's birth, to Martin Bormann and Eva Braun and to a fortune in lost gold.

A short alternative ending to Nazi history!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes! Particularly a friend with an interest in history, facts, & what ifs! An alternative ending to Nazi history, "The Devil's Gold", weaves historical fact & fiction into a new cloth.

It is a well written short story introducing Jonathan Wyatt now a rogue agent hunting for revenge from Cotton Malone who is the series star. There's less action & more dialogue in this story & Cotton Malone does not appear. But I think this is best listened to before Berry's novel "Jefferson's Key", & is ment to introduce it although is not necessary to it. Scott Brick is excellent as narrator. This is a standard story from Berry, nothing embarrassing if one is listening as a family but the fiction may need to be explained.

Pulled Me In

My first listen of The Devil's Gold started slow, and picked up steam from there. Get past the first couple of minutes, and you're in for a great story.

Plausible or Not?

Steve Berry uses historical facts to develop a story that keeps you wanting more. The performance was terrific. This is a great listen that can be finished in less than two hours.

Another view of Nazi's who escaped...

...to South America. The Devil's gold is a large cache of the metal supposedly brought from Europe by Martin Bormann. The conspiracy theory gets really weird by bringing in two Hitler-Braun sons, one still living, into the story. This short story is a bit too ahistorical for my taste. I like the story not because of the Nazi conspiracy theories but because of the rogue ex-agent going after Cotton Malone and another agent he blames for ending his career. Scott Brick narrates brilliantly.

Seek Peak

An intriguing introduction to the next of Steve Berry's, Cotton Malone adventures. One part treasure hunter and one part revenge. I continue to be drawn in by Steve Berry's entertaining and thought provoking series. Looking forward to the next chapter.

Disappointing

This is a short story that reads like you missed the first part. Don’t waste any money on it.

A Cotton Malone short without Cotton in it

This is an interesting short story set firmly in the Cotton Malone universe. His presence is mentioned, but the man himself, does not appear here. Also unusual for this series, which is, at it's heart a series about historical mysteries, is that the history here is relatively recent. In the past we have dealt with mysteries going back hundreds to thousands of years. Here we have a story rooted firmly in the 20th century.

The story is mostly standalone, but teases a follow-up that will include Malone in a much more significant way.
I recommend this book.

Be Aware this is simply a part of The Kaiser's W

I'm a Steve Berry addict and love his stories, I was a bit disappointed that a LOT of this short story was either taken from The Kaiser's Web or incorporated into it. There were definitely some unique parts to this short story - and maybe it was necessary, but...
Unless you are REALLY in need of a Berry fix - I'd wait until the next full-length novel.
P.S. I'm now listening/reading all of the other short stories right now too! A lot of fun.
