The Inner Circle is about a man named Beecher White, who works at the National Archives in Washington D.C. One day, Beecher's childhood crush shows up, Clementine, and asks Beecher to help her find her father. Beecher wants to impress Clementine so he brings her to a private room that is used only by the president. In the room they find an ancient dictionary. This dictionary may seem like nothing, but it proves to be the beginning of a large series of events. A murder occurs, and this along with many other events sends Beecher and Clementine further down the pike trying to figure out what is going on. Beecher is met with many dilemmas that not only affect him, but many others as well.
I loved this novel by Brad Meltzer. I thought this was a quick read due to the amount of suspense that Mr. Meltzer packed into each page. I was constantly on the edge of my seat while reading this and never wanted to put it down. The Inner Circle was full of many twists and turns that constantly had the reader second guessing very many things. I really appreciated the beautifully developed plot and the absolutely amazing character development. Throughout the novel, I felt that I had known Beecher forever. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend this book to any mystery and suspense lovers.
