This is my review of the book The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry, which I finished the other day. It caught my eye for two reasons firstly someone had left it in our holiday accommodation, and secondly it said on the front cover “The lost tomb of Alexander the Great could hold the key”. I don't believe I have read any of Steve Berry before, certainly not recently, so I thought I would give it a go. Having read the history of Alexander over three books in the last few months I was interested to see how this tied in with the plot line.
Sadly having now read it I can see why it was left behind. What a contrast to my previous book Robert Goddard. Maybe that was the problem, I just could not relate to the characters or story line. I seemed to spend more time looking for the inconsistencies, and massive leaps in the story. So on the face of it it could have been am interesting book but just never quite hit the mark. There is not much more to say really.
