Shadow is the Secret Service code name for First Daughter, Nora Hartson. And when Michael Garrick, a young White House lawyer, begins dating the irresistible Nora, he's instantly spellbound, just like everyone else in her world. It's a world all of us have heard about but few of us really know. A world where power is an aphrodisiac, your father is the President, your close friends wear earpieces and carry guns, and everyone watches your every move. Like most, Michael thinks he can handle the pressure. Until, while together late one night, he and Nora witness something they were never meant to see - and become ensnared in a secret scheme by a White House insider that includes betrayal and murder. Suddenly, this young Washington power broker, who just yesterday was out on a dream date, finds himself trusting no one, not even Nora, in a battle to prove his innocence. It's a battle that will shake the walls of the Oval Office to their foundations - and may ultimately cost Michael Garrick his life.
exciting fast paced "read" .. err .. "listen"
Honestly, I downloaded this because I loved "Identity Crisis"....and now I had to download all of Meltzer's books. At first, I thought I wasted my money, the first few minutes were slow and I was getting bored quickly, but then....it hooked me. I usually can just listen to books while I'm driving, this one caught me so much that I just couldn't remove the earbud from my ear all day. Loved it.
I have never ever listened to books. I work in an office where i can listen to my iPod all day long but every time i tried to listen to a book, it would put me to sleep. But when Itunes offered The Millionaires for free, I decided to try it. It was great and so I bought The First Counsel, now i'm hooked on Brad Meltzer! He definitely keeps me on the edge of my seat while i'm working and i can never figure it out exactly. If you like The Millionaires, you'll love The First Counsel.
Upset - Purchased this book on 10/12 for $28.95 - now the price is $8.95. I want my $20 back
