Brad Meltzer's #1 New York Times bestseller featuring a two-hundred-year-old code devised by Thomas Jefferson and a present-day conspiracy at the highest level of power .
"Six minutes from now, one of us would be dead. None of us knew it was coming."
So says Wes Holloway, a young presidential aide, about the day he put Ron Boyle, the chief executive's oldest friend, into the president's limousine. By the trip's end, a crazed assassin would permanently disfigure Wes and kill Boyle. Now, eight years later, Boyle has been spotted alive. Trying to figure out what really happened takes Wes back into disturbing secrets buried in Freemason history, a decade-old presidential crossword puzzle, and a two-hundred-year-old code invented by Thomas Jefferson that conceals secrets worth dying for.
Politics and history are key players in this thriller from bestseller Brad Meltzer. Former presidential aide Wes Holloway has been permanently scarred by an assassination attempt that spared the President but left Wes wounded and the President's close friend dead. Years later, Wes comes upon the supposedly deceased man in Malaysia--but he's looking quite alive, albeit with some cosmetic changes. Not only that, but it appears as if the mysterious man may be going after his old friend, the former President.
