"Six minutes from now, one of us would be dead. That
was our fate. None of us knew it was coming."
So writes Wes, a young Presidential aide, about the day
that changed his life forever. It was on that July 4th day
that Wes put the President's oldest friend into the
Presidential limousine; by the time the trip came to an
end, the friend was dead, the victim of a crazed assassin,
and Wes was permanently disfigured by a bullet taken in
"Because of me, Ron Boyle died. Eight years later, he
came back to life."
Trying to figure out what really happened on the worst day
of his life will lead Wes on a chase that takes him back
to that long-ago July 4th, back to a decade-old
presidential crossword puzzle, back to ancient Masonic
symbols hidden in the street plan of Washington, DC, and
even back to a 200-year-old secret code invented
by Thomas Jefferson. Employing his mastery of Presidential
lore and powerful secrets, and expanding to the glittering
world of Palm Beach high society and its seedy fringes,
Meltzer has crafted his fastest and boldest thriller yet.
