Brad Meltzer was born on April 1, 1970. He graduated from the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School. His first published title was called The Tenth Justice. His other works include Dead Even, The First Counsel, The Millionaires, The Book of Fate, The Zero Game, and Inner Circle. He is the Eisner Award-winning author of the critically acclaimed comic book, Justice League of America. He also wrote the non-fiction books, Heroes for My Son and Heroes for My Daughter. He has written speeches for former President Clinton's National Service Program and played himself as an extra in Woody Allen's film, Celebrity.
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.

From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been more than two dozen assassination attempts on the President of the United States.
Four have been successful.
But now, Beecher White--the hero of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Inner Circle--discovers a killer in Washington, D.C., who's meticulously re-creating the crimes of these four men. Historians have branded them as four lone wolves. But what if they were wrong?
Beecher is about to discover the truth: that during the course of a hundred years, all four assassins were secretly working together. What was their purpose? For whom do they really work? And why are they planning to kill the current President?
Beecher's about to find out. And most terrifyingly, he's about to come face-to-face with the fifth assassin.
