bookshelves: thriller

I saw this at the library last week. I thought it would be a good bathroom book. We all have those, right? OMG! I ended up literally throwing this into the wall. I've never done that. The protagonist is a young, supposidly bright archivist for the US National Archives. This character suffers from so many annoying Tropes. Let's see: Horrible Judge of Character; Ignore all evidence; No knowledge of his primary job; Selective obliviousness; Suffers from 2 unrequited relationships; Carries the Idiot Ball and basically becomes an example of Too Dumb to Live. Skip this and just Google "The Culper Ring."

I know. Thought it was just going to be some quick - guilty pleasure - thriller - mind candy. I almost feel like writing to him for my money back for the tax $ my library wasted buying it.

Michael No doubt: this is Meltzers worse. I'm understanding there may be a sequel unfortunately. How can we stop that from ever happening
