Readers' Annotation: Beecher is thrust into the middle of a secret society with roots from the time of the first U.S. President.
Summary: Beecher, a young archivist, at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. helps his childhood crush find information about her father. When Beecher shows her into a room where the current President of the United States views items from the archives, they discover a secret book stashed under the chair where the President usually sits. This small discovery sets in motion events out of Beecher's control. He doesn't know who to trust and his life depends on trusting the right people.
Evaluation: Readers of Dan Brown and John Grisham will appreciate Brad Meltzer's intricately plotted stories. Meltzer is a master at keeping you guessing who the real villian is. The Inner Circle is plot driven with a few key characters and a few supporting ones. Meltzer makes it easy for readers to keep the characters strait. He is able to keep the story moving with out getting too bogged down in the details behind the secret societies.
