    NYC – The Fifth Assassin Signing

    About this Author
    Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Fate, as well as the bestsellers The Tenth Justice, Dead Even, The First Counsel, The Millionaires, The Zero Game, and The Book of Lies.

    He is also one of the co-creators of the TV Show, “Jack & Bobby” and is the Eisner Award-winning author of the critically acclaimed comic book, Justice League of America.

    His first non-fiction book, Heroes for My Son, is a collection of heroes from Jim Henson to Rosa Parks that he’d been working on since the day his son was born. This December, he’ll be launching “Brad Meltzer’s Decoded” on the History Channel. And his newest thriller, The Fifth Assassin, will be released on January 15, 2013.

    Raised in Brooklyn and Miami, Brad is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School. The Tenth Justice was his first published work and became an instant New York Times bestseller. Dead Even followed a year later and also hit the New York Times bestseller list, as have all six of his novels. The First Counsel came next, which is about a White House lawyer dating the President’s daughter; then The Millionaires, which is about two brothers who steal money and go on the run. The Zero Game is about two Congressional staffers who are literally gambling on Congress. The Book of Fate is about a young Presidential aide, a crazed assassin, and the 200-year-old code created by Thomas Jefferson that times them together. For authenticity, The Book of Fate was researched with the help of two former Presidents, Clinton and Bush. His last book, The Book of Lies, is about the missing murder weapon that Cain used to kill Abel, as well as the unsolved murder of Superman creator Jerry Siegel’s father. Brad is
    one of the only people to interview Jerry Siegel’s family about the murder and, with his charitable site, OrdinaryPeopleChangeTheWorld.com, has been the driving force behind the movement to repair the house where Superman was created.

    His books have spent over ten months on the bestseller lists, and have been translated into over 25 languages, from Hebrew to Bulgarian. In The Tenth Justice, the opening lines are: “Ben Addison was sweating. Like a pig.” In the Hebrew translation, it became: “Ben Addison was sweating. Like a horse.” We’re not sure if it’s a Kosher thing or what!

    Brad has played himself as an extra in Woody Allen’s “Celebrity,” co-wrote the swearing-in oath for AmeriCorps, the national service program, and earned credit from Columbia Law School for writing his first book, which became The Tenth Justice. Before all of that, he got 24 rejection letters for his true first novel, which still sits on his shelf, published by Kinko’s.

    Brad currently lives in Florida with his wife, who’s also an attorney.
