Venetian Betrayal

Steve Berry
This is the third in the Cotton Malone series, Cotton, Cassiopeia Vitt, and Hendrik Thorvaldson are back on yet another quest. They are racing against Irina Kovastina, new President of the Central Asian Federation, a new powerful group of the former "Stans". This time they are looking for Alexander the Great's tomb and his lost magic healing elixir, which can cure any disease. The book is predictable if you've read Berry, yet still fun reading.
