About the author

Brad Meltzer is the number one New York Times bestselling author of twelve bestselling thrillers, including The Inner Circle, The Book of Fate, and The Escape Artist. He is also the host of the TV show Brad Meltzer’s Decoded on the History Channel. He lives in Florida with his wife and three children.

In Meltzer’s latest novel, The Lightning Rod, Archie Mint has led a charmed life. When he’s killed while trying to stop a robbery in his own home, his family is shattered—and then shocked to learn his perfect life actually held criminal secrets beyond imagination.

While working on Mint’s body before his funeral, mortician “Zig” Zigarowski discovers something he was never meant to see, which leads him to uncover Mint’s involvement in a top-secret military unit and his connection to military artist Nola Brown. Two years ago, Nola saved Zig’s life, so he knows better than most that she’s as volatile and dangerous as a bolt of lightning.

Everyone wants to talk to Nola, but she’s not cooperating. To track her down, Zig teams with Nola’s long missing brother, who’s just as combustible as she is. As they follow Nola’s trail, they discover one of the U.S. government’s most intensely guarded secrets: an undisclosed Cold War-era military facility that holds the key to a hidden group willing to compromise the very safety and security of America itself.

Trouble always finds her…

She’s the lightning rod.
