ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Brad Meltzer, is the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The Escape Artist, The Inner Circle, and many other Bestselling Thrillers, as well as the "Ordinary People Change the World" Series.  He is also the Host of the History Channel TV shows Brad Meltzer’s Decoded and Brad Meltzer’s Lost History, which he used to help find the missing 9/11 Flag that the firefighters raised at Ground Zero.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Taking place during the most critical period of our Nation’s birth, The First Conspiracy tells a remarkable and previously untold piece of American history that not only reveals George Washington’s character, but also illuminates the origins of America’s counterintelligence movement that led to the modern day CIA.

In 1776, an elite group of soldiers were handpicked to serve as George Washington’s bodyguards.  Washington trusted them; relied on them.  But unbeknownst to Washington, some of them were part of a treasonous plan.  In the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, these traitorous soldiers, along with the Governor of New York, William Tryon, and Mayor David Mathews, launched a deadly plot against the most important member of the military: George Washington himself.  This is the story of the secret plot and how it was revealed.  It is a story of leaders, liars, counterfeiters, and jailhouse confessors.  It also shows just how hard the battle was for George Washington and how close America was to losing the Revolutionary War.

In this historical page-turner, New York Times Bestselling Author Brad Meltzer teams up with American History Writer & Documentary Television Producer Josh Mensch to unravel the shocking true story behind what has previously been a footnote in the pages of history.  Drawing on extensive research, Meltzer and Mensch capture in riveting detail how George Washington not only defeated the most powerful military force in the world, but also uncovered the secret plot against him in the tumultuous days leading up to July 4, 1776.
