A secret worth killing for, a woman with no past, and an act of treason that changed America: #1 bestselling author Brad Meltzer returns with The House of Secrets.
"When Hazel Nash was six years old, her father taught her: mysteries need to be solved. He should know. Hazel's father is Jack Nash, the host of America's favorite conspiracy TV show, The House of Secrets.
Even as a child, she loved hearing her dad's tall tales, especially the one about a leather book belonging to Benedict Arnold that was hidden in a corpse.
Now, years later, Hazel wakes up in the hospital and remembers nothing, not even her own name. She's told she's been in a car accident that killed her father and injured her brother. But she can't remember any of it, because of her own traumatic brain injury. Then a man from the FBI shows up, asking questions about her dad -- and about his connection to the corpse of a man found with an object stuffed into his chest: a priceless book that belonged to Benedict Arnold.
Back at her house, Hazel finds guns that she doesn't remember owning. On her forehead, she sees scars from fights she can't recall. Most important, the more Hazel digs, the less she likes the person she seems to have been.
Trying to put together the puzzle pieces of her past and present, Hazel Nash needs to figure out who killed this man -- and how the book wound up in his chest. The answer will tell her the truth about her father, what he was really doing for the government -- and who Hazel really is. Mysteries need to be solved. Especially the ones about yourself."

    Boring. I have tried since I paid for it, but it goes on and on about nothing.

    This book was far from your best. Plodding painful and would not end. I been a fan of yours since you started. Please get back to gripping suspense and humor.
  • Good read

    I have read and loved all Brad's books. This one was a little different read. I can't say it was his best - a little slow confusing in the beginning but a very good read once it got started. The characters were vivid and easy to imagine. Maybe since it was a collaboration we find it different than his style in his other novels. I will continue to read his books and look forward to the next one. Hopefully it won't be as long of a wait.

    Not only is this one of the worst Meltzer boos I've read, it may be on the worst books I've read. What's with the story line. I did finish it because I usually like Meltzer but not this time.

    Very disappointed with Brad Meltzer's House of Secret. It was a huge letdown compared to all his other books. It really started off with a bang, I thought wow this is going to be great. Unfortunately it was downhill from then on mixed with a few exciting chapters. I had to force myself to finish it. Don't waste your money on this one.

    I just did not like this book. I have enjoyed his other books but this one just didn't seem to be up to par for me.
