From time to time I comb the shelves of a bookstore in search for a new author. That's how I stumbled into Steve Berry. Reading the summaries of his books it's clear that he tries to emulate Dan Brown; Brown actually endorses "The Romanov Prophecy".

Needless to say it doesn't compare. This book is confusing and slow. The plot is unbelievable and the bad guys are the most inept lot put together in the history of literature. I know this is fiction, but if you know a little about Russian culture you will keep raising your eyebrows, too many licenses and inaccuracies.

This is Berry's first effort, only for that I will give him the benefit of the doubt and two stars and maybe pick one of his latest offerings like "The Third Secret" to see if there is improvement.
