A priceless book, hidden in a corpse. A family secret, handed down through generations. And a woman with no memory of her past. #1 bestselling author Brad Meltzer returns withTHE HOUSE OF SECRETS When Hazel Nash was six years old, her father taught her: mysteries need to be solved. He should know. Hazel's father is Jack Nash, the host of America's favorite conspiracy TV show, The House of Secrets. Even as a child, she loved hearing her dad's tall tales, especially the one about a leather book belonging to Benedict Arnold that was hidden in a corpse. Now, years later, Hazel wakes up in the hospital and remembers nothing, not even her own name. She's told she's been in a car accident that killed her father and injured her brother. But she can't remember any of it, because of her own traumatic brain injury. Then a man from the FBI shows up, asking questions about her dad-and about his connection to the corpse of a man found with an object stuffed into his chest: a priceless book that belonged to Benedict Arnold. Back at her house, Hazel finds guns that she doesn't remember owning. On her forehead, she sees scars from fights she can't recall. Most important, the more Hazel digs, the less she likes the person she seems to have been.Trying to put together the puzzle pieces of her past and present, Hazel Nash needs to figure out who killed this man-and how the book wound up in his chest. The answer will tell her the truth about her father, what he was really doing for the government-and who Hazel really is. Mysteries need to be solved. Especially the ones about yourself.



  • The concept of Benedict Arnold was certainly well explored. The author managed to consistently incorporate this idea into the narrative. However, towards the end, it seemed as though the author either hurriedly concluded the story or was uncertain about how to wrap it up. Despite this, I found the story to be enjoyable, although there were a few aspects that could have been further developed. Nevertheless, these minor critiques did not detract from my overall appreciation of the book, which I found to be exceptionally well-written.
  • Listening to this book was an absolute drag. The only character that truly caught my interest was Butchie, whether in human or dog form. The plot seemed to stretch out endlessly, leading nowhere significant. Neither Hazel nor her brother were likable in the slightest. Rather than creating an air of mystery, the constant shifts in time only served to add more confusion. And to top it off, the ending was just as disappointing as the rest of the book, to put it mildly. Save yourself the trouble and pass on this one.
  • I had no idea where the story was headed until the very end, and then I ended up feeling a bit lost, I suppose. I wasn't really into the way they had two narrators telling the story either.
  • I love Brad's work. However I NEVER Could really get into this book. The plot was twisted around so much I never could get a feel the characters To me it missed the mark as one a Meltxer's beautifully conceived plots. Sorry, Brad. It just didn't speak to me like your other work. Waiting for your next masterpiece!
