(78)The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer (Audio)

Since the weather has gotten nice (kinda) in Wyoming I have been out walking a lot. I figured that rather than listen to music while walking I would renew my Audible subscription and listen to books. They have a handy-dandy little app that makes it so easy.

For me, an audiobook has to be engaging and suspenseful or it will not generally hold my attention. My mind will wander and I will miss key parts. Brad Meltzer's, The Inner Circle, fits the bill. It is about a young archivist, Beecher White, who tries to impress an old friend, Clementine Kaye, by finding out about her father. In that simple process, Beecher uncovers a secret society as old as the country and his close friend, Orlando is killed. As Beecher searches for the truth about what happened to Orlando he learns some truth about his country and his President. Truths that shakes him to his core.

The Inner Circle was the perfect choice for a walking book. It kept me walking so I could hear what was going to happen next. The characters were well written and the narrator did a fabulous job. Overall it was exactly what I needed to encourage me to hit the trails again.
