The President’s Shadow by bestselling author Brad Meltzer is now available. The political thriller is part of the Culper Ring series and follows The Fifth Assassin and The Inner Circle as top-notch reads.
Published by Grand Central and released June 15, The President’s Shadow combines intrigue, murder, and a family secret “that will have repercussions for the entire nation.” This is where the Culper Ring, a 200-yuear-old secret society founded by George Washington, comes into play to protect the President of the United States. Beecher White, a staffer with the National Archives in Washington D.C., is the main character, who will untangle the mystery and take readers on a breathtaking ride.
Meltzer, along with being a best-selling fiction author, has published bestselling non-fiction (History Decoded, Heroes for My Son, and Heroes for My Daughter), children’s books and also comic books (Justice League of America). He is also known as the host of the History Channel’s Brad Meltzer’s Decoded and Brad Meltzer’s Lost History.
According to Meltzer’s website, The President’s Shadow “opens with this simple idea: One morning in the White House Rose Garden, the First Lady uncovers a severed arm buried in the dirt. How did the arm get there? How’d they get past security? And most important, what’s the secret puzzle that’s hidden in the hand? You won’t believe the answer. And yes, Brad is already working on his next thriller.”
Among his other novels are The Tenth Justice, The Millionaires, The First Counsel, The Zero Game, and The Book of Fate, which was helped research by Presidents Clinton and Bush.
