In a vein similar to the works of Dan Brown, Brad Metzer’s Inner Circle covers a conspiracy going back to the founding fathers. The story revolves around a dictionary reported to have been owned by George Washington. A curator at the National Archives finds the dictionary and along with a former high school crush is involved in web of intrigue. Their objective is to find the secrets to a secret organization, before the organization finds and eliminates them.

This book to me was just okay. There were a few areas where things felt broken and didn’t flow right. Also, I’m not sure even having read it, what the big secret was supposed to be. I haven’t read any of Mr. Meltzer’s other books, but quite frankly, after reading this one, I’m not sure I’d be interested in the others. I had high hopes for it, based on the synopsis I’d received but it failed to draw me in like I thought.

Due to some strong language and adult violence, I’d put this in the older teen to adult market. I can’t fully recommend it. It was good, but not great, so buyer beware, or better yet, maybe get it from the library.
*Disclaimer* A special thanks goes out to Brad at Hachette Book Groups for a review copy of this book. It in no way influenced my review. You can discuss it here or join my facebook page and discuss it there.
