This was my first Meltzer novel, and I was a bit disappointed given that I have heard plenty of people give his stuff great reviews. The premise of this novel has an archivist accidentally discover a document/artifact that he wasn't supposed to that may compromise the President of the United States. When others start to realize that Beecher White, the archivist in question, may possess something with which to blackmail the most powerful man in the world, Beecher's life becomes a treacherous maze of who is on his side and who isn't. I liked that you didn't know who was on his side, but it seemed to me that Beecher, if he was as intelligent as he was described, should have been able to figure some things out well before I did, but he didn't and many of my predictions as to who the "bad guys" were proved to be true. There was also a lot of action scenes that really weren't all that "action-packed". The premise was great, but the execution failed to deliver what was promised
