Brad Meltzer's #1 New York Times bestseller featuring a two-hundred-year-old code devised by Thomas Jefferson and a present-day conspiracy at the highest level of power . "Six minutes from now, one of us would be dead. None of us knew it was coming." So says Wes Holloway, a young presidential aide, about the day he put Ron Boyle, the chief executive's oldest friend, into the president's limousine. By the trip's end, a crazed assassin would permanently disfigure Wes and kill Boyle. Now, eight years later, Boyle has been spotted alive. Trying to figure out what really happened takes Wes back into disturbing secrets buried in Freemason history, a decade-old presidential crossword puzzle, and a two-hundred-year-old code invented by Thomas Jefferson that conceals secrets worth dying for.

Once I started this one, I couldn't put it down! Fast-paced, lots of suspense, thrilling!! I had read Meltzer"s Millionaires and The Zero Game and didn't enjoy them as much as this one. The story was great with twists and turns all over the place! Great read!

A great political mystery
After reading Meltzer?s Millionaires I was a little disappointed in this story. But, I have come to respect his work. As a whole Meltzer?s average story beats other authors good stories hands down. This story has a lot of good content as well as a nice development of the motivations and actions of Wes Hollow as President Manning?s aide. I was worried that this book would be an attempt to replace The DeVinci Code by Dan Brown but I was very happy to find out that it wasn?t drowned in secret/hidden meaning or secret society hunts. This was a great story it mythology related to masonry and tied it to a set of believable events. The plot twist and search for a mole within this novel will keep you reading page after page. I can?t say more about the story without giving away some of the mysteries that make this book so fun to read. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Great Fast Read
I picked this book up at the airport and then even when the flight was over counldn't put it down. Short chapters that bounce from character to character. Easy to keep track of the characters. For the story, a good insight to the life of a president and the private life they live. A good suprise ending. Fast moving.
