From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been fourteen assassination attempts on the President of the United States. Four have been successful. But now, Beecher White - the hero of the #1 bestseller The Inner Circle - discovers a killer in Washington, DC who's meticulously recreating the crimes of the world's most famous assassins: John Wilkes Booth. Charles Guiteau. Leon Czolgosz. Lee Harvey Oswald. But what's scariest of all is what all four assassins have in common. Historians have branded them as four lone wolves. But what if they were wrong? Beecher is about to find out the truth: that over the course of a hundred years, all four assassins were secretly working together. What was their purpose? Who do they really work for? And why are they planning to killing the President today? Beecher's about to find out. And most terrifying, he's about to come face-to-face with the fifth assassin.

This is the second book in the Culper Ring Trilogy. I would advise reading the first title in the series, The Inner Circle, before this one, to make the story line easier to follow. I liked the book well enough, but I doubt that I will continue with the series.

This could be a good book. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to hear more that the first several tracks on disc one. 4 of the discs are badly damaged in several large areas. I'll let the librarian know when I return it and try to order a playable copy.

This was my first Brad Meltzer book, and I found this story somewhat convoluted and complex to the point of being annoying. The history lesson on the assassinations of President's McKinley and Garfield was interesting, as well as some little known facts about the Lincoln murder. I know he is a popular author, but I am not a raving fan yet.

The reader is too dramatic which distracts from the story. Coulda been a better story without everything being overhyped. Some of the connections are a bit of a stretch. Not the best hat Meltzer has done. Not as good as I had hoped it would be.
