Shadow is the Secret Service code name for First Daughter, Nora Hartson. And when Michael Garrick, a young White House lawyer, begins dating the irresistible Nora, he's instantly spellbound, just like everyone else in her world.

It's a world all of us have heard about but few of us really know. A world where power is an aphrodisiac, your father is the President, your close friends wear earpieces and carry guns, and everyone watches your every move.

Like most, Michael thinks he can handle the pressure. Until, while together late one night, he and Nora witness something they were never meant to see - and become ensnared in a secret scheme by a White House insider that includes betrayal and murder.

Suddenly, this young Washington power broker, who just yesterday was out on a dream date, finds himself trusting no one, not even Nora, in a battle to prove his innocence. It's a battle that will shake the walls of the Oval Office to their foundations - and may ultimately cost Michael Garrick his life.

    " The First Counsel is Brad Meltzer's third book, and like his previous books it was well written and hard for me to put down. I have to say that I liked the first two a little better, possibly because this one dealt with the powers and privileges that come along with being a member of the white house family, or may be it was because I felt part of the plot was a little unbelievable. It was a good story for the most part, with twists and turns like his other books, and I must say that I did not predict the ending. I think that is an important part of a good plot/book and I guess that's why I'd say that I actually liked this one. Overall, I enjoy Meltzer's writing, and I would definitely recommend any of his books for someone to read. I will continue to read what he publishes, but I would recommend one of his other books over this one. "

    " I have always loved Brad Meltzer's books, but this one was over the edge. I didn't appreciate the foul language. It was an intriguing book, and I read it in just a few days, but it is not one I would recommend. Maybe it is the "real world". If it is, heaven help us all if the First Family is as screwed up as this one is! I have faith that a family in this position would have their priorities in better order than this. "

    " If you like John Grisham, you'll definitely enjoy this read. I had a hard time putting it down. "
