He’s led a charmed life—he’s got a beautiful wife, two impressive kids, and a successful military career. But when he’s killed while trying to stop a robbery in his own home, his family is shattered—and then shocked when the other shoe drops. Mint’s been hiding criminal secrets none of them could have imagined.While working on Mint’s body before his funeral, mortician “Zig” Zigarowski discovers something he was never meant to see. That telling detail leads him to Mint’s former top secret military unit and his connection to artist Nola Brown.

This is the second book I have read by Brad Meltzer. No disappointment on either. They were good read reads and I can’t wait to read more. Brad was on Rachael Ray and she highly recommended his books. I started looking for his books on Kindle and just started reading them this week. I have had vertigo and I’m laying down a lot so perfect timing to catch up on reading. This and the one before it were great books. Any recommendation for which to start next?

I’ve been reading a lot lately. This book is clearly the best I’ve read in a long time. Hard to put the book down.
Complete suspense all the way through, very well written and flows from start to finish. Love the ending one that will make you smile.
Short and sweet answer is storyline was too back and forth. Present to past just could not get into this book had to force myself to finish
