About the Book:
“…a stand-alone thrill-ride, and his best book to date.” –Associated Press
“Berry’s imaginative mix of Judaic and Columbus lore as well as Tom’s transformation from suicidal flop to heroic everyman should please his many fans.”
– Publisher’s Weekly
“Sure to be another best seller.” – Library Journal
“There is simply no one today writing better or more satisfying thrillers than Berry and this one is not to be missed.” – Providence Journal
“For 500 years historians have pondered the question: Who was Christopher Columbus? The answer is simply another question: Who do you want him to be?” – Anonymous Observer
He was called many names – Columb, Colom, Colon – but we know him as Christopher Columbus. Many questions about him exist: Where was he born, raised and educated? Where did he die? How did he discover the New World? None have ever been properly answered. And then there is the greatest secret of all.
From New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry comes THE COLUMBUS AFFAIR (Ballantine Books Hardcover – On sale May 15, 2012) an exciting new adventure – one that challenges everything we thought we knew about the discovery of America.
Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist Tom Sagan has written hard-hitting articles from hot spots around the world. But when a controversial report from a war-torn region is exposed as a fraud, his professional reputation is destroyed. Now he lives in virtual exile, haunted by bad decisions and the shocking truth he can never prove: that his downfall was a deliberate act of sabotage by an unknown enemy. But before Sagan can end his torment with the squeeze of the trigger, fate intervenes in the form of an enigmatic stranger with a request that cannot be ignored.
Zachariah Simon has the look of a scholar, the soul of a scoundrel and the zeal of a fanatic. He also has Tom Sagan’s estranged daughter at his mercy. Simon desperately wants something only Sagan can supply: the key to a 500-year-old mystery, a treasure with explosive political significance in the modern world. For both Simon and Sagan the stakes are high, the goal intensely personal, the consequences of opposing either man potentially catastrophic. On a perilous quest from Florida to Vienna to Prague and finally to the mountains of Jamaica, the two men square off in a dangerous game. Along the way, both of their lives will be altered – and everything we know about Christopher Columbus will change.
