#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer returns with a pulse-pounding novel of lies and deception at the highest levels of government. There are stories no one knows. Hidden stories. I love those stories. And since I work in the National Archives, I find those stories for a living. Beecher White, a young archivist, spends his days working with the most important documents of the US government. He has always been the keeper of other people’s stories, never a part of the story himself—until now. When Clementine Kaye, Beecher’s first childhood crush, shows up at the National Archives asking for his help tracking down her long-lost father, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the President of the United States privately reviews classified documents. After they accidentally happen upon a priceless artifact—a two hundred year old dictionary that once belonged to George Washington—hidden underneath a desk chair, Beecher and Clementine find themselves suddenly entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder. Soon a man is dead, and Beecher is on the run as he races to learn the truth behind this mysterious national treasure. His search will lead him to discover a coded and ingenious puzzle that conceals a disturbing secret dating back to the founding of our nation. It is a secret, Beecher soon discovers, some believe is worth killing for. Gripping, fast-paced, and filled with the fascinating historical detail for which he is famous, The Inner Circle is a thrilling novel that once again proves Brad Meltzer is a brilliant author writing at the height of his craft.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Meltzer has earned the right to belly up to the bar with John Grisham, Scott Turow, and David Baldacci.” People
“Meltzer skillfully shows that conspiracy theories aren’t a modern invention but have been a part of the US government since Washington’s days. The author weaves well-known historical facts with lesser-known details and even humorous mistakes housed in the National Archives…Meltzer spares no historical accuracy in this briskly paced novel.” Tampa Bay Times
The Inner Circle…is a fast, fun thriller. Once the twists start coming, Meltzer proves his prowess with the Washington DC political thriller, and soon it’s impossible to resist the lure of the next page.” BookPage
“Meltzer is so good.” Entertainment Weekly
“A fascinating look at the hidden treasures of the National Archives.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Scott Brick is the perfect partner to tell the story of a hidden America. His energetic delivery heightens the drama.” AudioFile
“A fast-moving tale of murder, deception and intrigue linked to George Washington’s Culper Ring and its espionage descendants.” Kirkus Reviews
“In this political thriller with historical-conspiracy overtones (or perhaps it’s the other way around), Meltzer creates his most engaging protagonist in years…Meltzer teams Beecher with an equally strong character, Clementine Kaye…Meltzer expertly develops the story, throwing in twists and turns at appropriate intervals, and he does an excellent job of putting us in Beecher’s corner and making us care about what happens to him. The story has a surprising and satisfying conclusion, and Meltzer leaves the door wide open for a sequel.” Booklist
