Reviews

Because not since the Fletcher Knebel seminal Seven Days in May or James Grady's scathing Days of the Condor, has there been a political thriller as relentlessly paced or blisteringly effective as The Fifth Assassin. An early contender for the best thriller of 2013.-- "The Providence Journal on The Fifth Assassin"
History and suspense collide in shocking ways - and the intensity never lets up. Beecher carries the weight of the story. He's a great character who will resonate with readers since he's like the fun next-door neighbor or your best friend in college....One of his best books to date...The ending of The Fifth Assassin appears to announce that Beecher White will return, and that cannot come fast enough.-- "Washington Post on The Fifth Assassin"
Clearly a history buff of the highest order, Meltzer knows his stuff, and he's included research from chats with none other than President George H.W. Bush....Beecher's got the mental acumen of Robert Langdon and the gumption of Indiana Jones, but unlike those globe-trotting types, Meltzer's protagonist is thrown into adventures made in the USA and acts as an awesome gateway into the deadlier aspects of American history.-- "USA Today on The Fifth Assassin"

The twists and turns...will keep even the most jaded reader up all night...Meltzer blends history into the story line, and a good portion of it is insider knowledge, giving authenticity to the conspiracy that is slowly unveiled. This is the third thriller to feature White, and it's a perfect cap to an amazing trilogy.

-- "Associated Press"
All of Brad's books are a fascinating read. He is a great storyteller who keeps all of us on the edge of our seats.-- "President George H.W. Bush"
Full of surprises, action, twists and turns, it is a wild and entertaining (and yes, educational) romp, wonderful in every way...Read The Fifth Assassin and prepare to be entranced and enthralled.-- "BookReporter on The Fifth Assassin"

Electrifying...Meltzer's character development is particularly superb in this book.

-- "Dallas News"

A taut political-conspiracy thriller...Readers will find it difficult to put this quick-paced page-turner down as they get pulled into the maze of deceit, intrigue, and conspiracy. Those who are new to the series should read the first two books.

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

Fans of historical conspiracy fiction will find a lot to like.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Numerous plot strands, multiple narrative perspectives, divided loyalties, a Devil's Island labor-camp nightmare from the past, and a psychotic killer add up to another chilling adventure from plotmaster Meltzer...a high-energy page-turner, full of shocking violence and unrelenting peril: a stay-up-all-night nail-biter.

-- "Booklist"

[With] Scott Brick's dependable narration...the plot moves quickly...He portrays the characters well, so listeners get a clear picture of what they're all about...Brick makes it a quick listen.

-- "AudioFile"

Clearly a history buff of the highest order, Meltzer knows his stuff...Beecher's got the mental acumen of Robert Langdon and the gumption of Indiana Jones.

-- "USA Today, praise for the series"
