Audie Award Finalist, Thriller/Suspense, 2014
From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been more than two dozen assassination attempts on the President of the United States.
Four have been successful.
But now, Beecher White - the hero of the number one New York Times best seller The Inner Circle - discovers a killer in Washington, D.C. who's meticulously re-creating the crimes of these four men. Historians have branded them as four lone wolves. But what if they were wrong?
Beecher is about to discover the truth: that during the course of a hundred years, all four assassins were secretly working together. What was their purpose? For whom do they really work? And why are they planning to kill the current President?
Beecher's about to find out. And most terrifyingly, he's about to come face-to-face with the fifth assassin.

I could not follow this book. Not sure if it was the naration or the way it was written but it seemed very confusing so I gave up. Pity since I adore Scott Brick and have listened to many in this series.
What a ride - a terrific continuation of Meltzer's previous release. It was great getting back in touch immediately with the characters. As one who is also interested in presidential history, I found the integrated realism of events that surrounded key presidents, Lincoln most prominently, but others as well, very intriguing. It inspired many search and Wiki inquiries to determine any reality in Brad's basis for some of the plot twists. Truly couldn't put it down - made my commute longer by design. Highly recommended.
plot twists, deep basis for story lines, plenty of surprises
Scott's a favorite - as many have said, he could read the phone book and it would be a must-listen
I was pleasantly surprised and inspired to learn more all along the read
Historical bounty intriguing
I could NOT STOP LISTENING. I stayed up til the wee hours of the morning as I had to have this resolved then zap....it leaves you during a high point in the story. The rest of the story please? How long until the next book comes out.? I cannot wait to see how this story ends.
Beecher. He just grabs his passion and inner dialogue so well. I feel that I almost know him personally.
I LOVE the little known historical facts such as President Lincoln sneeking into St Johns Church to pray and attend services and leaving before service ended. I also did not know that Lincoln was a member at Foundry Methodist church nor did I know of Foundry's history. Love their sharing of little known facts about George Washington and the playing cards. Facinating.
I was shocked at the books ending..."WHAT?" You cannot end it here.....how long do I have to wait for the rest of the story? Oh dear! I want to know the rest of the story! I also plan on visitng the sites in the book the next time I visit DC. St Johns Church and Cafe Milano here I come. I've visited the other places. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. I LOVE this series.
I thought the book was for me but as it went on and on I realized that at the very end I should have kept this book on the bookshelf
I think my next book will be The Intercept by Dick Wolf
I think Scott Brick did all he could but the book for me lacked substance
The story did not grab the reader's attention as one would expect from a thriller.
I really enjoy these books. Usually, I go through them in a matter of days only because I force myself to stop listening so that I don't have to wait long for my next set of credits... Lol. Great book. Loved it
This next installment lived up to expectations. Couldn't stop listening. I do so love the level of detail & obvious desire to educate the reader/listener. Thank you, Mr. Meltzer.
a great thriller with more plot twists than a West Virginia mountain road. The second book in the series and very well researched.
