This audiobook is an expanded, annotated 'writer's cut' edition of The Bishop's Pawn, including fascinating behind-the-scenes commentary read by author Steve Berry.
On the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King comes the explosive new thriller from international best seller Steve Berry that sees Cotton Malone return to his very first case.
History notes that the ugly feud between J. Edgar Hoover and Martin Luther King Jr., marked by years of illegal surveillance and the accumulation of secret files, ended on April 4, 1968 when King was assassinated by James Earl Ray.
But that may not have been the case.
Now, 50 years later, former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone must reckon with what really happened on that fateful day in Memphis.
It all turns on an incident from 18 years ago, when Malone, a young navy lawyer trying hard not to live up to his maverick reputation, is asked by Stephanie Nelle at the Justice Department to help with an investigation.
He soon discovers that the department and the FBI are at war over a hugely valuable rare coin - and a cache of secret files containing explosive revelations about the King assassination, information that could ruin innocent lives and threaten the legacy of the civil rights movement's greatest martyr.
Malone's decision to see his first case through to the end - from the clear waters of the Dry Tortugas to the halls of power in Washington, DC itself - changes not only his own life but the course of history.

Jump past the fact versus fiction and come back
I loved the book and the production, however for some reason the fact vs fiction was added at the beginning instead of at the end. This makes no sense as we don't know what is being referred to. Nearly turned it off as with no background it sounded like yammer yammer yammer. However i came back afterwards and enjoyed it as it now made sense to me.
I love this aspect at the END of the book. Also enjoying the little tidbits added during the book.
Loved the story and enjoy learning more history from Steve Berry's books than I ever did in history at school.
