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....
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 200-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 from the founding of our nation. It is a secret, Beecher soon discovers, that 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 as a brilliant author writing at the height of his craft.

This is my first Brad Meltzer book and i am hooked. Often it takes a few chapters to capture me in an audio book, but not this one. This is the first time i listened to a book and was captivated in the first chapter. I thought Scott Brick was amazing narrator. I thought Meltzer's novels would be on the same level as Robert Littel (the company) so i was a bit disappointed. However, it takes several chapters before i am hooked into any of Robert Littell's books.
Overall, Brad Meltzer's writing reminds me of Grisham or Sidney Sheldon. easy reads, good story line, and very entertaining. It's worth the credit.

WOW Get this book. Great plus Scott Brick
I have been an Audible customer since 2006. I have never been motivitated to leave even stars for a book. After over 400+ books I am moved to write a review for this book. This book is a real thriller in every way. You never know who the are the good guys or the bad guys. It never had slow periods. I was amazed how it managed to keep my attention througout the entire book. Scott was wonderful as always. The short chapters helped keep place on my player. I have purchased some Melzer before. I will be going back to check for more after this. Thanks Brad.
