REVIEW:The Fifth Assassin

The Fifth AssassinThe Fifth Assassin by Brad Meltzer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Imagine if it was discovered that throughout history all four presidential assassins were actually working together. New York Times Bestselling author Brad Meltzer is writing to prove just that. Returning in his second novel is Beecher White the young national archives archivist who also belongs to the Culper Ring, a covert network of spies founded by George Washington during the AmericanRevolution. As Beecher races to stop another assassination attempt on this nations president he may just come face to face with a fifth assassin.

WOW! What a great story! I am new to Brad Meltzer but thoroughly enjoyed this tale. Nothing intrigues me more than a story of suspense that is wrapped up in unique and strange historical facts.

I will make note that the chapters are short and their are multiple story lines that do intertwine constantly. Normally this might lead to confusion but on the contrary I felt it carried the book. The short chapters moved the action at just the right pace while the various character plots kept the reader guessing until the very end.

Thanks for the reality break!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my un-biased and honest review
