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.

Yes. Scott Brick gives life to the book.
Follows the Inner Circle. Lots of good twists.
Yes but read at night and would listen until eyes gave up.
Keeps you enthralled. Brad.Neltzer writes such gripping novels, hard to wait for next book.
X Files Freak
The plot was hard to follow. Sometimes some of the characters seemed to be in the past, at other times, they seemed to be in the present. I couldn't always tell if the bad guy was a mental case or where in time he was supposed to be. Conversations between characters sometimes seemed out of place and time. I finally got tired of trying to follow the plot and the bad guy and just gave up. The original plot was good, but there was too many threads weaving in and out of time and I got lost trying to follow thru with the author's intent.
I hope not, unless some of the book is re-written or edited and easier to follow.
I enjoyed this story even more than the previous, maybe because I was already emotionally invested in the characters but possibly because I adore Scott Brick and have listened to enough of his narration that I feel as though we are old friends.
Worth the credit!
I think Meltzer is stretching the reach of the culper ring. it has lost some of the mystery and excitement
move on to another topic
No, I hope not
I didn't really like this story...I had to force myself to finish it, and admit to blanking out several times..it didn't keep my interest
It's a real page turner but when you do there's nothing there. Sorry I spent my money.
Good story with expressive delivery. I loved the historical connection to the four Presidents that have been killed.
Story with a good "who done it" plot.
Scott Brick is very expressive in his presentation. Well done!
I did enjoy a glimpse of a secret government world, and feeling a part of the inner workings of Washington D.C. That being said, I expected more; I'm still wondering why I should care about the characters. Although I met some of them in an earlier Meltzer novel, they are still underdeveloped.
I was engaged in the story, certainly, but disappointed that there wasn't more depth. Consider this a good vacation read; entertaining, slightly informative regarding government history, and an escape from our non-espionage lives.
Narrator Scott Brick comes through, as always, with a stellar performance.

CAN'T STOP READING--WON'T STOP LISTENING
Meltzer is always fresh, surprising . You go for a ride and you learn a lot on the way. TOO RELEVANT FOR COMFORT.
Scott is always good...he seems to really get into The Fifth Assasin
A smart thriller that you will keep thinking and thinking about.
This one is a WOW! Read it or listen.
Good continuity with first book, somewhat ponderous, but a good and interesting listen. I question the need for so much to be made of the "COPPA RING" Look 4 ward to the next follow on.
