The First Counsel

Brad Meltzer

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Thriller / suspense, Thrillers (Children's / Teenage)

Massive US bestselling thriller, compared to Grisham by reviewers and readers.

JFK Jr. was Lark. Amy Carter was Dynamo. Chelsea Clinton was Energy. Meet Shadow.

"Shadow" is the Secret Service codename for the First Daughter, Nora Hartson. And when she starts dating young White House lawyer Michael Garrick, he starts feeling like the First Counsel. That's what happens to everyone who lives in her world.

It's a world all of us have heard about, but none of us truly know - a world where your dad's the President, your close friends wear earpieces and carry guns and a world where everyone is watching.

On a date, Nora and Michael see something they shouldn't. To protect her, he admits to something he shouldn't. And when the problem snowballs out of control, she may have to do something she shouldn't.

The First Counsel. The President's Daughter.

You've never dated anyone like this.
