I purchased this political thriller novel at the FOL Used Bookstore in Carpinteria as I became interested in reading a novel by Brad Meltzer novel after I watched him on the History Channel's Decoded television series years ago.
White House lawyer Michael Garrick has a relatively anonymous position at a very public address. That is, until he starts dating Nora Hartson (secret service code name: Shadow), the sexy and dangerously irresistible daughter of the President. But the confident young attorney thinks he can handle the pressure. Until, out on a date, Nora and Michael see something they shouldn't. To protect her, he admits to something he shouldn't. And when a body is discovered and Michael is the suspected killer, he finds himself on the run. Now, in a world where power is an aphrodisiac and close friends carry guns and are under strict orders to risk their lives, Michael must find a way to prove his innocence.
I am giving The First Counsel by Brad Meltzer a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars, which I think is generous. I think I'll skip on reading any further books written by Brad Meltzer.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
