Description

In this audiobook, Steve Berry and Macmillan Audio team up again to bring listeners an expanded, annotated Writer's Cut edition of The Bishop's Pawn. This Writer's Cut edition features fascinating behind-the-scenes commentary read by the author. Critically-acclaimed and award-winning narrator Scott Brick returns to tell the thrilling first case of Cotton Malone — eponymous hero of Berry's iconic New York Times bestselling series.

History recalls that the ugly feud between J. Edgar Hoover and Martin Luther King, Jr. — marked by years of illegal surveillance and the accumulation of secret files — ended on April 4, 1968, when King was assassinated by James Earl Ray. But that may not have been the case.

Now, fifty years later, former Justice Department agent, Cotton Malone, must reckon with the truth of what really happened that fateful day in Memphis.

It all turns on an incident from eighteen years ago, when Malone, as a young Navy lawyer, was trying hard not to live up to his burgeoning reputation as a maverick. When Stephanie Nelle, a high-level Justice Department lawyer, enlists him to help with an investigation, he jumps at the opportunity. But he soon discovers that two opposing forces, the Justice Department and the FBI, are at war over a rare coin and a cadre of secret files containing explosive revelations about the King assassination — information that could ruin innocent lives and threaten the legacy of the civil rights movement's greatest martyr.

Malone's decision to see it through to the end — from the raucous bars of Mexico, to the clear waters of the Dry Tortugas, and ultimately into the halls of power within Washington D.C. itself — not only changes his own life, but the course of history.

Steve Berry always mines the lost riches of history; in The Bishop's Pawn he imagines a gripping, provocative thriller about an American icon.

        November 13, 2017
        Bestseller Berry’s 13th thriller featuring U.S. government operative Cotton Malone (after 2017’s The Lost Order) is an effective conspiracy yarn centered on Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. In the present, Malone has a secret meeting in Atlanta with an unnamed man who sent him a note stating, “Fifty years have passed. Bring them.” Flash back to 18 years earlier. Malone, a member of the JAG Corps, is recruited by the Justice Department’s Stephanie Nelle to handle a special assignment—to retrieve a waterproof case containing a stolen Double Eagle coin, worth millions, from a sunken boat off the south Florida coast. Malone makes the dive, only to find that he hadn’t been told the truth; the case is also the target of some armed men and turns out to contain confidential documents relating to an FBI program connected with King’s murder in Memphis in 1968. Berry makes Malone accessible to newcomers by presenting his numerous rookie mistakes as a field operative, but the anticlimactic reveal may disappoint some readers. 400,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: Simon Lipskar, Writers House.

      • content: Scott Brick reprises his narration of the Cotton Malone series. Brick's gutsy, virile voice is appropriate for Malone's first-person recounting of his first case with the Justice Department. He unfolds astonishing events from 18 years earlier, and Brick portrays his regrets and bewilderment as he unravels the battle between the Justice Department and FBI over secret files from the Martin Luther King assassination. Brick narrates the historic African-American voices with respect but doesn't differentiate between male characters to clarify the complex dialogues. Dr. King's writings are read by Kevin Free, whose flat, youthful voice is as unlike the great orator's as can be imagined but at least avoids a poor imitation.
