Summary

Summary

Beecher White, a young archivist, spends his days working with the most important documents of the US government. He has always been the keeper of other people's stories, never a part of the story himself …

Until now.

When Clementine Kaye, Beecher's first childhood crush, shows up at the national archives asking for his help tracking down her long lost father, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the president of the United States privately reviews classified documents. After they accidentally happen upon a priceless artifact—a  two-hundred-year-old dictionary that once belonged to George Washington, hidden underneath a desk chair—Beecher and Clementine find themselves suddenly entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder.

Soon a man is dead, and Beecher is on the run as he races to learn the truth behind this mysterious national treasure. His search will lead him to discover a coded and ingenious puzzle that conceals a disturbing secret from the founding of our nation. It is a secret, Beecher soon discovers, that some believe is worth killing for. 

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Meltzer is noted for his meticulous, on-the-scene research. It has taken him into the basement and attics of the US Capitol…The Inner Circle is spot-on.” USA Today
“Meltzer infuses his audacious plots with believability thanks to his meticulous research and likable, realistic characters. His ability to expound on a historical footnote shines as his eighth novel, The Inner Circle, delves into secret spy rings, political conspiracies, and a behind-the-scenes look at the National Archives.” Tampa Bay Times
“Narrator Scott Brick is the perfect partner to tell the story of a hidden America. His energetic delivery heightens the drama of the story of a humble Washington archivist who is caught up in a deadly game that could destroy not just the president but also the presidency. Brick’s intense style adds to the excitement of Meltzer’s best work yet.” AudioFile
“Meltzer creates his most engaging protagonist in years…Meltzer expertly develops the story, throwing in twists and turns at appropriate intervals.” Booklist
“A fast-moving tale of murder, deception, and intrigue linked to George Washington’s Culper Ring and its espionage descendants.” Kirkus Reviews
