Brad Meltzer’s new political thriller book from the #1 New York Times bestselling Culper Ring series, The President’s Shadow, goes from the discovery of a severed arm in the Rose Garden to uncovering family secrets.
Meltzer is the one of the only authors to have books on the bestseller lists for Advice, Children’s Books, Comic Books and Non-Fiction. He is also the host to two television shows, Brad Meltzer’s Lost History on H2 and Brad Meltzer’s Decoded on the History Channel.
About the book:
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 toward the long, carefully hidden truth about the most shocking history of all: family history.
