A priceless book, hidden in a corpse. A family secret, handed down through generations. And a woman with no memory of her past. #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.

"Author Brad Meltzer has written a mystery about the murder of a host of a TV show on conspiracies. Clearly, he didn't need to go far for inspiration--as anyone who has ever caught "Brad Meltzer: Decoded" can attest. A dual narration by Scott Brick and January LaVoy makes a great book even better in audio. LaVoy deserves special credit for her calm portrayal of a young woman who is left without memory or emotion after her father, the TV star, is murdered. It all has to do with a book that may have belonged to Benedict Arnold. Meltzer, always one to provoke readers with tantalizing theories, asks a simple question: What if Arnold was really a double agent for George Washington? And what would certain people do to keep such knowledge secret? Murder would be the least of it. M.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
