Review:

"A grandiose conspiracy linking four previous presidential assassinations threatens current U.S. president Orson Wallace in bestseller Meltzer's convoluted second entry in his Culper Ring trilogy (after 2011's The Inner Circle). Archivist Beecher White, a member of the small, secretive group known as the Culper Ring, created by George Washington and charged with protecting the presidency rather than the president, goes into action after someone known as the Knight begins re-enacting previous presidential assassinations with church figures as victims. Several people from Beecher's past play key roles, including disfigured Marshall Lusk, who may or may not be the assassin, and Clementine Hadrian, who shot and killed Dr. Stewart Palmiotti, the president's close friend and adviser. Beecher tries desperately to discover the Knight's identity and thwart him before he reaches his final target. The cumbersome plot, with its frequent flashbacks to Beecher's childhood, overwhelms Meltzer's impressive grasp of historical details. 10-city author tour. Agent: Jill Kneerim, Kneerim, Williams & Bloom." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Can't wait to read this book by Brad Meltzer. Previewed the first chapter and it left me not wanting to wait for it's release in three weeks! Meltzer is the master of signs, symbols, and codes, as he has demonstrated in History Channel's popular series "Decoded". Everything from the Mayan Prophesies to the missing White House cornerstone to the Old West, whatever the subject, this author knows his stuff and has an exciting, unique style of writing that is endearing to anyone interested in great fiction. If you liked The DaVinci Code, you will love this book.
