Pamela, like her brilliant father, German emigrant Russell Roth, exhibits from childhood a cool composure and a rare intellect. Although only a teenager, she in increasingly absorbed by the truth of her father’s early life in wartime Germany. It is a past Russell never discuses.
As Pamela immerses herself in the history of World War II Germany and the Holocaust, her mother, Janet, alarmed at her daughter’s obsession, turns for help to Otto Ebenstein. Otto is an old friend and a former teacher of Janet’s. He is also a psychiatrist with an outstanding record for tracking down Nazi war criminals.
Pamela’s youthful passion rekindles Otto’s flagging devotion to the cause. When two ex-Nazis are found sexually assaulted and tortured to death, Otto begins to suspect Pamela of strange powers beyond his reckoning. He come to know Pamela and gains her trust. He studies the girl’s secret files and materials on the Nazi period and on her father’s career. His investigations lead him to an astonishing discovery.
With its chilling suspense, Death Knell is a breathtaking novel of retribution whose seed lies in the gas chambers of Auschwitz and whose shattering climax evokes memories of The Exorcist and Audrey Rose.

About the author

C. Terry Cline Jr. was born in Birmingham, Alabama “on a train going out,” he always said, because his family moved often during his youth. Terry looked at life as a big adventure and aspired to be a writer from an early age, despite the fact that he hated school. His relationship with traditional learning and his desire to escape authority to his natural environs was captured in Judith Richards's novel, Summer Lightning, set in Belle Glade, Florida.

Writing was an early interest, and he was selling articles on nature and short stories by age seventeen. As an adult, and creator of his own advertising and public relations business, Terry once trained a chimpanzee to bowl – a unique way to draw crowds to newly opened bowling alleys. He traveled the U.S. with Judy the “Chimpion” Bowler, appearing on every major TV outlet. The outgrowth of working with a chimp was a magazine, Land Alive, and an educational program on animals offered to schools.

At age 37, Terry sold his business to concentrate on writing novels. The first of his ten novels of psychological suspense sold after a three year effort. Cline was called a “master of suspense” by more than one reviewer. He finished his last work, The Cordoba Connection, a few months before suffering a stroke, which resulted in his death in 2013.

C. Terry Cline’s wife of thirty-four years, author Judith Richards, collaborated with him in the writing of all his works.

"The result is a thriller that intrigues and provides historical context. Berry is the master scientist with a perfect formula." — Associated Press

One of USA Today's "Five Books Not to Miss!"

The next in New York Times top 5 bestseller Steve Berry's Cotton Malone series involves the Knights of Malta, papal conclave, and lost documents that could change history.

A deadly race for the Vatican’s oldest secret fuels New York Times bestseller Steve Berry’s latest international Cotton Malone thriller.


The pope is dead. A conclave to select his replacement is about to begin. Cardinals are beginning to arrive at the Vatican, but one has fled Rome for Malta in search of a document that dates back to the 4th century and Constantine the Great.

Former Justice Department operative, Cotton Malone, is at Lake Como, Italy, on the trail of legendary letters between Winston Churchill and Benito Mussolini that disappeared in 1945 and could re-write history. But someone else seems to be after the same letters and, when Malone obtains then loses them, he’s plunged into a hunt that draws the attention of the legendary Knights of Malta.

The knights have existed for over nine hundred years, the only warrior-monks to survive into modern times. Now they are a global humanitarian organization, but within their ranks lurks trouble — the Secreti — an ancient sect intent on affecting the coming papal conclave. With the help of Magellan Billet agent Luke Daniels, Malone races the rogue cardinal, the knights, the Secreti, and the clock to find what has been lost for centuries. The final confrontation culminates behind the walls of the Vatican where the election of the next pope hangs in the balance.
