The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer
(Grand Central Pub., 2011, 449 pages)
Written by the guy who hosts “Decoded” on the History Channel this is about a secret spy ring that Washington started during the revolution, the Presidency’s Inner Circle. A National Archives employee, Beecher, is visited by an old schoolmate/”girlfriend” and asked to help her find her father. When she visits the archives they stumble upon a mystery that involves the President of the United States.
It was a pretty standard conspiracy/Da Vinci Code kind of book. I didn’t hate it but I kind of made myself finish it. I felt like he was trying too hard to make parts of the story work together and the pace was a little bit frustrating.
