On occasion we discuss fiction books that incorporate numismatic themes. A blog post this week discusses a book that involves a book dealer and elephant medallions of Alexander the Great. -EditorIn Steve Berrys third Cotton Malone novel, The Venetian Betrayal, several elements weave together to tell a story of fear, domination, and the search for historical greatness. Someone has been stealing elephant medallions that portray Alexander the Great. It is suspected that Irina Zovastina, Supreme Minister of the Central Asian Federation, is behind the thefts. Why? Some believe that Zovastina has found the long-lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Meanwhile, an American virologist has discovered a secret that will revolutionize HIV care. But what is his connection with Zovastina? And why has retired US Justice Department agent Cotton Malone, a bookseller in Copenhagen, been dragged into the mess?
