It is 1806; a powerful and criminal secret society has almost complete control over many of the elected officials, international finance, and commerce in the young nation. Its leaders arrange for a dissident to be brutally murdered and left floating in the Potomac River so that the body surfaces within clear site of Thomas Jefferson's White House.

This criminal act is intended to send a message to the President and all those around him: 'the society's power should know no limit – elected officials – including the president – must acknowledge and support us, allow us to do whatever we want, when and wherever we choose, or suffer the consequences'.

Almost two hundred years later, after discovering a hidden diary written by someone who lived in the White House during that time, a small group of college students and a world class computer hacker learn all there is to know about this particular crime... the identity of the victim and what, if anything, Jefferson did about it? They also learn all about the secret society. By digging into this two hundred year old crime the students attract the attention of the modern day version of the secret society.

The current leader threatens the student's very existence - but rather than retreat, the students decide to fight back.

About the Author

Martin Herman's sixth-grade English teacher told her students to write a story a week. Martin fell in love with the written word at that young age, and he's been writing ever since. But his work remained on the shelf until he was 75 years old. Due to the prodding of one of his acquaintances, Martin decided to bring his work to the public. The reception from readers has been nothing short of spectacular.

The Jefferson Files is a rarity among first novels ... a taut, fast-paced, thriller with the twists and turns you'd expect from an established veteran. Martin's second novel, The Hidden Treasure Files, firmly establishes him as an important new American voice. Fasten your seat belts and be prepared to be wildly entertained.

Martin Herman was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. He has lived all over the United States and currently calls Connecticut home. Martin's professional career has been in business, but he is devoting more time to his first love, writing. He is now working on his third book.
