“The Jefferson Key” by Steve Berry
Four U.S. presidents have been assassinated-in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963 - each murder seemingly unrelated. But what if those presidents were killed for the same reasons?
When an attempted assassination of President Danny Daniels in the heart of Manhattan happens, that same question is being asked by Justice Department operative Cotton Malone. Malone risks his life to protect the president only to find himself in danger of a secret society of pirates called the Commonwealth. In a dangerous exploit, Malone and Cassiopeia race across the nation and take to the high seas, where they discover codes and old documents forged by the Founding Fathers themselves. They may even find something that can stop the Commonwealth.
