Berry (“The Amber Room,” “The Romanov Prophecy”) dives into ancient Chinese history with his fifth Cotton Malone thriller. The tomb of China's first emperor, guarded by an underground army of terracotta warriors, has remained sealed for 2,200 years. Though it's regarded as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, the Chinese government won't allow anyone to open it. Why not? Malone and heartthrob Cassiopeia Vitt reunite in this race to track down a secret that will determine the future of China.
