As he investigates, he realizes it's a that may have dire repercussions for the President. Even worse, the message turns Beecher's personal life upside down, pointing him towards the dark truth about his father's death.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 20, 2015 – Bestseller Meltzer's third near-future Culper Ring thriller (after 2013's The Fifth Assassin) opens with a great dramatic image: First Lady Shona Wallace finding a severed arm in the White House Rose Garden. This grim discovery leads President Orson Wallace to consult Beecher White, a member of the Ring, which was founded by George Washington to "protect the presidency" and at present consists of only six members. The two men have a complicated relationship: Beecher once saved Wallace's life, but also believes that the chief executive committed a violent crime as a college student. Beecher agrees to help Wallace when he learns that the dead man's hand was clutching a flattened penny that could have a link to the mysterious death, many years before, of Beecher's father, who was a mechanic in the Army. Fans of historical conspiracy fiction will find a lot to like, but readers should be prepared for thin characters and a wildly over-the-top plot. 10-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

The President' Shadow

Excellent thoroughly enjoyed it like the previous two. I still feel you could do a fourth in the series and be successful with it. I wonder how it would read. Thanks for a great reading adventure!

Presidents Shadow

This story basically plodded along. Every once in a while the story line picked up, but that was rare. Even after the tale was over, there were three more chapters.


I have loved following Beecher White and his journey with the Culper Ring. This book was a fitting end to the trilogy.
