Brad Meltzer is like a modern day Leonardo Da Vinci. A visionary, Da Vinci was ahead of his time, drawing the principles for an airplane, and other inventions, which he drew, created or invented. Meltzer is also as talented. He is a visionary who brings the past and its mysteries to the present. He is the hero who dares enter into all the shrouded mazes, sniffing out the clues that will eventually render the answers. The man with the “golden mind” has a new book out, Inner Circle. Like everything that Meltzer creates, even the release date, 01/11/11, is unique, because of his attention to detail. All his work shines, splendidly, as if it was covered with gold lustre. His being such a stickler for details is one more reason for his work being so fascinating. Whether reading Heroes For My Son or any of his eight fiction books, or comic books, or watching the History Channel’s Brad Meltzer: Decoded, everything is detailed to the point. In the first season, ten episodes were shown where experts guided by Brad himself, explore wherever clues lead them to find the answers to unsolved mysteries.

Meltzer’s fascination with the masons continues in The Inner Circle. His main character, Beecher White, works as an archivist, handling documents of major importance, in the National Archives, for the U.S. government. He lives a so-so life, until Clementine Kaye, re-enters his dull existence, asking him for help in finding her father. How can Beecher say no, when Clementine was once the star of his puppy love dreams?
Beecher and Clementine come upon a hidden secret, underneath a desk chair, a 200 years old dictionary that was once the property of George Washington. This is the beginning of myriad steps into the path of intrigue, conspiracy, danger, and murder. Will Beecher and Clementine survive the ruthless people who will stop at nothing till their wants are met?
The Inner Circle zoomed up to number one in the NY Times Bestselling list shortly within its release. Meltzer commenced a grueling book tour to please many of his fans. One of his stops was at the popular spot for authors and readers, alike, Books & Books, located in Coral Gables, Florida.
