This book is a hunderd pages too long -- I felt like it would never end. The premise is something you would think would be a great book or movie, but man -- didn't feel like it was going anywhere at certain points. Sometimes it felt like every single moment had to be reviewed in painstaking steps, and then towards the end, it got sloppy with so many details that were brought up towards the end, but were never really resolved. Best part of the book -- Nico in the truck. Those who have read it know what I'm talkin' about.

It's a decent book to take with you on a trip, but overall, I would say not one of Meltzer's better stories.

not too bad. awful long and drawn out. characters are only so-so. But decent plot. At times when Nico was in full pursuit I felt I was reading DaVinci code again.

Wes Holloway, a hotshot presidential aide, is wounded in an assassination attempt that kills the president's close friend. Eight years later, the dead man reappears, disfigured but very much alive and apparently stalking the former president. Wes thinks he can figure out what's going on, but to do so he must decipher a two-century-old code and penetrate the secrets of Masonic history.

I like Brad Meltzer; this isn't his best work, but it's a good summer read.
