As an in between read I read The Alexandria Link by Steve Berry. This is the second book in the Cotton Malone series. This time his son gets kidnapped and he and his ex-wife try to find out why. It all has to do with the Alexandria Link, a person who was invited to the Alexandrian Library, which apparently still exists in some form. Of course not everyone is just happy to have knowledge available that has been hidden for over 2000 years so there are governments and business clubs all trying to achieve some sort of goal by finding or hiding the library. The main theory has to do with the location of the promised land and what can be gained or lost by causing strife between the governments of Israel and the Arabian countries. Another fast past read with a relatively happy ending. Four stars.
