Brad Meltzer (JLA, Identity Crisis, Green Arrow) appears at the Vero Beach Book Center on Saturday, June 20th at 1 pm to present his latest novel The President’s Shadow.
Following The Fifth Assassin and The Inner Circle, Brad Meltzer is back with his new political thriller book from the #1 New York Times bestselling Culper Ring series: The President’s Shadow.
There are stories no one knows. Hidden stories. I find those stories for a living.
To most, it looks like Beecher White has an ordinary job. A young staffer with the National Archives in Washington, D.C.,, he’s responsible for safekeeping the government’s most important documents…and, sometimes, its most closely-held secrets.
But there are a powerful few who know his other role. Beecher is a member of the Culper Ring, a 200-year old secret society founded by George Washington and charged with protecting the Presidency.
Now, the current occupant of the White House needs the Culper Ring’s help. The alarming discovery of the buried arm has the President’s team in a rightful panic. Who buried the arm? How did they get past White House security? And most important: what’s the message hidden in the arm’s closed fist? Indeed, the puzzle inside has a clear intended recipient, and it isn’t the President. It’s Beecher, himself.
Beecher’s investigation will take him back to one of our country’s greatest secrets and point him towards the long, carefully-hidden truth about the most shocking history of all: family history.
