The Book of Fate
by Brad Meltzer
Not bad - though it took me a lonnnng time (months) to finish listening to this in audio book format. Not so "National Treasure"-y conspira-tol as it had been sold, but an engaging enough story, and okay enough.
Eight years ago, presidential aide Wes Holloway survived the attack of a crazed assassin that killed the chief executive's oldest friend, Ron Boyle. Now permanently disfigured, Holloway receives a report that sounds impossible: Half a world away, Boyle has been spotted alive and well. Not surprisingly, Wes becomes almost unnaturally obsessed with the truth behind the sighting. Before his quest ends, it will lead him deep into Washington cover-ups, Masonic secrets, and an intricate code invented by Thomas Jefferson. Deciphering mysteries at a high-adrenaline pace.
