Editorial Reviews

Brad Meltzer's latest entry to the NYT Bestsellers list sounds as good as it looks, thanks in large part to Scott Brick, who brings a sense of urgency to the characters. Wes Holloway is scarred in body and soul after the failed assassination of his boss, the President of the United States. Brick brings out the humanity of Meltzer's hero, who isn't a superman who laughs in the face of death, but a regular guy. You can hear his confusion when he sees a friend he thought was dead and his fear when he learns that the man who scarred him is back for a second try. And no one does icy villains like Brick. Better allow some extra drive time--you won't want to turn this off." Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award --AudioFile Magazine, on Book of Fate
Brad Meltzer is one of my favorite writers to narrate, primarily because when we're recording, it feels like he's there in the studio with me. Not just because his books are usually written in the first person and dynamically voiced, but because Brad was the first author to show me just how much he cares about the audio versions of their work. Scott Brick
“Told with a flair that belies the author’s youth, the plot dips and turns…Thoroughly enjoyable…The plot is inventive, and Meltzer has a good ear for dialogue. His writing style is fresh, and the care he devoted to his craft is apparent throughout.” Washington Post Book World
“Fast-paced…A quick and intriguing ride, full of blind alleys and hints of betrayal among friends…The Tenth Justice, with its youthful dialogue and carefully developed characters, refreshingly breaks the mold of legal thrillers.” USA Today
“The action spirals to the highest reaches of influence peddling and insider trading…The behind-the-scenes glimpse into our highest court is fascinating.” Newsday
“In The Tenth Justice, young Brad Meltzer has formulated a thriller that fairly crackles, having pace, confidence, and velocity-charged storytelling.” Irish Times
“Completely absorbing.” Scientific American
“Meltzer’s debut novel is a crafty legal thriller set in Washington, DC…Meltzer moves the story along at a crisp pace, spicing the action and legalese with lively banter and intriguing DC arcana. Meltzer’s shadow-filled world will entertain…readers.” Publishers Weekly
“A witty, almost violence-free, fresh, and satisfying page-turner.” Booklist
“A barn-burning first novel…Meltzer spins a mean paranoid fantasy that’ll have you turning pages in a frenzy.” Kirkus Reviews
