A family’s secret, a ruthless fanatic, and a covert arm of the American government—all are linked by a single puzzling possibility: What if everything we know about the discovery of America was a lie? What if that lie was designed to hide the secret of why Columbus sailed in 1492? And what if that 500-year-old secret could violently reshape the modern political world? Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist Tom Sagan has written hard-hitting articles from hot spots around the world. But when one of his stories from the Middle East is exposed as a fraud, his professional reputation crashes and burns. Now he lives in virtual exile—haunted by bad decisions and a shocking truth he can never prove: that his downfall was a deliberate act of sabotage by an unknown enemy. But before Sagan can end his torment with the squeeze of a trigger, fate intervenes in the form of an enigmatic stranger. This stranger forces Sagan to act—and his actions attract the attention of the Magellan Billet, a top-secret corps of the United States Justice Department that deals with America’s most sensitive investigations. Sagan suddenly finds himself caught in an international incident, the repercussions of which will shudder not only Washington, D.C., but also Jerusalem. Coaxed into a deadly cat-and-mouse game, unsure who’s friend and who’s foe, Sagan is forced to Vienna, Prague, then finally into the Blue Mountains of Jamaica—where his survival hinges on his rewriting everything we know about Christopher Columbus. Don’t miss Steve Berry’s short story “The Admiral’s Mark” and a sneak peek of his new novel, The King’s Deception, in the back of the book.

Controlling Accounts.--The addition of special columns in books of original entry makes possible the keeping of Controlling Accounts. The most common examples of such accounts are Accounts Receivable account and Accounts Payable account. These summary accounts, respectively, displace individual customers' and creditors' accounts in the Ledger. The customers' accounts are then segregated in another book called the Sales Ledger or Customers' Ledger, while the creditors' accounts are kept in the Purchase or Creditors' Ledger. The original Ledger, now much reduced in size, is called the General Ledger. The Trial Balance now refers to the accounts in the General Ledger. It is evident that the task of taking a Trial Balance is greatly simplified because so many fewer accounts are involved. A Schedule of Accounts Receivable is then prepared, consisting of the balances found in the Sales Ledger, and its total must agree with the balance of the Accounts Receivable account shown in the Trial Balance. A similar Schedule of Accounts Payable, made up of all the balances in the Purchase Ledger, is prepared, and it must agree with the balance of the Accounts Payable account of the General Ledger."

Do you believe in miracles? You will when you discover The Third Secret... For fans of The Da Vinci Code comes a timely thriller that takes us from the echoing halls and papal politics of the Vatican to the wilds of Romania and a mysterious world of holy visitations and miracles. In the library of the Vatican, in its most secret vault, lies a box. A box that may only be opened by the Pope. And within this box once lay a scrap of paper that could shake the foundations of the church and faith itself - until in 1978 a junior cleric seized his chance and stole the paper. in July 1917 the Virgin Mary appeared to three children in Fatima, Portugal, and entrusted them with three secrets. The world soon learned that the first described Hell, and the second foretold the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II. The third, not revealed until 2000, predicted an attempt on a Pope's life - which had indeed taken place 19 years earlier. Shock swept the globe: it didn't make sense - why keep this a secret for so long? And many around the world continued to wonder... Cut to the present day and the frail and elderly Pope Clement XV has become obsessed with accounts of visitations from Mary. He suspects that there was more to the Third Secret and assigns his trusted aide, Father Colin Michener, to discover the truth. Cardinal Valendrea, frontrunner to become the next Pope, knows for sure that there was more to the message than has been revealed, and he's ready to kill to prevent the full Third Secret from being made public. As the cardinals gather in conclave to decide the next Pope and Valendrea prepares for victory, only Michener can stop him, and his quest turns into a roller-coaster of a journey that could change Michener, the Church - and the world - forever. Based on true events, including the Fatima Secrets reported by three peasant children in Portugal, The Third Secret is a riveting thriller that melds fact, theology, tradition and fiction very much in The Da Vinci Code mould. And with the death of Pope John Paul II and the election of his successor fresh in the minds of readers, this is a timely and fascinating insight into the workings of the Vatican.

In this original eBook novella by the New York Times bestselling author of The King’s Deception, globetrotting intelligence agent Cotton Malone is lured into dangerous intrigue surrounding the world’s most famous royals—and uncovers a murderous conspiracy of terrorists and traitors, all born from an ancient tale of Saxon history. “In Malone, [Steve] Berry has created a classic, complex hero.”—USA Today In England to participate in the trial of suspected international terrorists, Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is mysteriously summoned to an audience with the Queen of England. A cryptic call has warned of looming danger to the ailing queen’s son and grandson—the next two heirs in line for the throne. And when the source of that ominous information, a notorious tabloid publisher, dies mysteriously, the royal family has reason to fear a genuine conspiracy. But they also suspect that the enemy lies within—and no one at Buckingham Palace, or even the nation’s own Secret Intelligence Service, can be trusted. Now it’s up to Malone to discover the truth. Matching wits with a power-mad politician and a vicious royal blue blood, he must race against time through the streets of London to the forbidden reaches of Iceland, all to stop a monstrous plot to seize the monarchy—one that stretches back to the time of Arthur.
