  • "Brad Meltzer is one of my favorite writers to narrate, primarily because when we're recording, it feels like he's there in the studio with me.  Not just because his books are usually written in the first person and dynamically voiced, but because Brad was the first author to show me just how much he cares about the audio versions of their work." -Scott Brick

  • "Brad Meltzer's latest entry to the NYT Bestsellers list sounds as good as it looks, thanks in large part to Scott Brick, who brings a sense of urgency to the characters. Wes Holloway is scarred in body and soul after the failed assassination of his boss, the President of the United States. Brick brings out the humanity of Meltzer's hero, who isn't a superman who laughs in the face of death, but a regular guy. You can hear his confusion when he sees a friend he thought was dead and his fear when he learns that the man who scarred him is back for a second try. And no one does icy villains like Brick. Better allow some extra drive time--you won't want to turn this off." Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award
