Brad Meltzer's Latest Thriller "The Lightning Rod" Starts With a Lifelong Fear He's Had

The Lightning Rod is author Brad Meltzer's latest thriller, and he's dishing details on the characters and plot—without giving too much away. 

"I'm hearing voices in my head. I speak to my imaginary friends. I always start with my great fears. So, in this book it opens up with a fear I've had my whole life. I've heard this little voice in my head for decades now. The opening scene has a character hand his car keys over to a valet at a fancy restaurant. And the valet takes the car keys, but instead of parking the car, he hits the little GPS button...and says the magic words "Go home." And now, the valet is heading to that man's house...he's got his car keys, he's got his house keys that are on there too because he's going to rob him. This is a robbery, but when he gets to the man's house, there's another man waiting for him with a gun because this isn't a robbery at all this is a trap," says Brad.  

And that's just the first chapter. 

Wait, There's More ...
