The Columbus Affair--#21 finished

A fun read about Christopher Columbus being Jewish and hiding the lost temple treasures in Jamaica.  I get the author Steve Berry confused with James Rollins in that both take rumors or unlikely theories and pull them out into a story.  Not just a ho-hum story but an action page turner type story.  They are fun.  I really don't know much about Columbus or lost temple treasure so I can't say how hair brained these theories really are, but Berry makes them sound both possible in some ways.   The treasure in Jamaica very unlikely but had to find a way to put them together to make the story.  It was entertaining at least and somewhat educational in a way.

I have posted it on PBS, there was 1 WL for it so I will be mailing it off with a couple other books shortly.  Still reading Nightwing but getting closer to finishing.  Also still reading The Clarinet Polk and Does Anything Eat Wasps--I hadn't read much this last week, been busy with other stuff.  Weather is also turning better so reading time will probably shrink some as well.
