Are there sex scenes in this book? I have read Meltzer's books but forgot-my 14 year old is interested and I do not want him reading vivid sexual scenes

Wow what an amazing thrill novel. I enjoyed every second I read this novel. Once you start reading, you will have trouble putting it done. The plot is quite amazing with historical facts and details about the most secret society in the history of the USA. Throughout the whole novel you the reader will have difficulty knowing who is or is not telling the truth as the main character whips through this adventure against the President of USA! If you like and enjoy fast-paced novels with a great plot that consists of twist and turns then this a book  is for you! It's mostly based in Washington D.C. and other states nearby but more importantly there is one chapter that does take place in CANADA! A great read...hope you enjoy!

I like the style of writing that Brad Meltzer employs; it's very fast-paced and easy to read. In most of his books, including this one, he manages to splice in historical facts that add greatly to the book's enjoyability. While not for everyone, I'd still recommend this book.

Never was able to reaaly get into the story. I think that secret codes and such has been over done.

Meltzer's writing is not bad, but unfortunately his plot leaves a lot to be desired and turns this book into almost a joke

A fresh story about how the president of the United States used the facility inside the National Archive to communicate messages with his most loyal and secretive friends. The author over used pointless dialogue and a couple of pieces just didn't fit. But good enuff to keep readers turning those pages though unsatisfied in several places from the middle to the end.

Put it down. Couldn't find the motivation---perhaps just Grisham'ed out? Will try it again some other time.
