NY Times Bestseller, Steve Berry, Visits Norcross on Saturday 2/26

NY Times Bestseller, Steve Berry, Visits Norcross on Saturday 2/26

Norcross, GA--  (submitted by Tixie Flower) Steve Berry, the author whose historical thrillers have repeatedly made The New York Times bestseller’s list, will be at the Norcross Cultural Arts & Community Center for a book-signing Saturday, February 26, at 7:00 pm. 

Berry will be promoting his newest book, “Emperor’s Tomb”, the 6th in a series of harrowing adventures faced by former-Justice Department operative Cotton Malone. The story offers up astounding historical revelations, pits Malone against a ruthless ancient brotherhood, and sends him from Denmark to Belgium to Vietnam then on to China, a vast and mysterious land where danger lurks at every turn. In this story like all Berry’s thrillers, there is plenty of fascinating history, as he constantly introduces something from the past — lost, forgotten —that continues to hold great relevance today.
