The Escape Artist by Brad Meltzer

Into the Wild

The Escape Artist Read Online Free - 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."

I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars here. It's amazing to think that it's been nearly 22 years since Brad Meltzer burst on the scene with his first book, The Tenth Justice . I remember him being quite the wunderkind at the time, and I even went to a book signing at one of those long-defunct bookstore cha...

Brad Meltzer is back with another thriller to appease his adult fans. With a story that dazzles and characters whose lives enrich the storytelling, the wait for this gem seems justifiable. Jim “Zig” Zigarowski works as a civilian mortician at the Dover Air Force Base, having seen much during his...

Murder, deeply hidden political secrets, interesting but emotionally scarred characters and a unique setting - who could ask for more? Me, actually; I'm thinking (make that hoping) this marks the start of a great new series. The intriguing setting is Dover Air Force Base, where exceptionally tale...

I have read books by Brad Meltzer previously and know that he will once again deliver a thrilling and mysterious story. And I was right. I was also delighted that the story included a Harry Houdini angle! Who is Nora Brown? Who is this woman that is killed when an airplane crashed? I have to admit...

See this review and more at Who is Nola Brown? That’s the question readers will ask themselves as Brad Meltzer’s latest high-octane thriller, The Escape Artist, kicks off. Officially, Nola Brown is dead. Her body was found among others after a devastating plane crash. Her c...

Clever and accurate title. Well-written thriller, plot-wise. But it's entirely a book written by a man that is supposed to be about a woman but is actually about a man instead. The marketing is well-done but inaccurate. This book is about Zig, and tangentially about Nola Brown. It would be nice t...

*3.5 stars rounded up. I was surprised to realize I've never read any books by Brad Meltzer before and found I quite enjoyed this taste. The main character here is Jim "Zig" Zigarowski, a divorced mortician at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. A small plane carrying military personnel and governme...

He works at Dover Air Force Base applying his superior skills to re-building the remains of downed US Service men after they’ve been killed and maimed in combat. He’s the best there is and he always gets the toughest cases. But he a...
