In #1 bestselling author Brad Meltzer’s new thriller, death is just another way to disappear.

Two hours outside of Washington, DC is the mortuary for the U.S. government’s most top-secret and high profile cases. America’s most important funeral home. To work there, mortician Jim “Zig” Zwicharowski has one rule: never let a case get personal. But when a new body arrives–of young female sergeant Nola Brown, who was a childhood friend of Zig’s daughter–Zig can’t help himself. Looking closely at Nola’s body, he realizes immediately: this isn’t Nola. Indeed, his daughter’s friend is still alive. And on the run. Zig’s discovery reveals a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power–and traces back through history to a man named Harry Houdini. “Nola, you were right. Keep running.”

The highly anticipated new book by Brad Meltzer has been out since March 6, 2018, and I haven’t forgetten it since. There have been a plethora of good books come out of the woodwork this year, but in my opinion, The Escape Artist has the strongest story. You need to meet young sergeant Nola Brown. Brad has created some very unique characters in this one. Who else can make a mortician fascinating? It’s not just one of these characters that make this a blockbuster, but how their lives are connected and intertwine throughout the book. Nola Brown. Jim “Zig” Zwicharowski,  a top mortician of the U.S. government. There’s more but I can’t give you any spoilers!  Can’t wait to see what happens in the next book of the series.
