Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2013-05-15)

When pastors of Washington, DC, churches attended by presidents are murdered, archivist Beecher White discovers that the crimes parallel four presidential assassinations. Were those killings connected, and does the current string foreshadow a fifth assassination? This sequel to political thriller The Inner Circle picks up shortly after the end of the previous novel but stands alone. Well researched and filled with historical tidbits, Meltzer's latest work satisfies listeners who want a solid story to accompany the action. Frequent viewpoint changes and plot twists create a breakneck pace. With mellow tones and perfect pacing, Scott Brick delivers one of his best performances.

Verdict: This thriller will appeal to fans of action fiction by authors such as David Baldacci, John Grisham, and James Rollins.
