Best-Selling Author Brad Meltzer Reveals Secrets Hidden in Plain Sight in BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED

Premieres Fourth Quarter 2010 on HISTORY(TM)

August 6, 2010, Los Angeles, CA -Best-selling author, Brad Meltzer, has been writing novels for more than a decade. As a history buff he's studied and written about some of the most revered institutions and documents in human history; including the Supreme Court, the Presidency, the Secret Service, Wall Street, and the bible. Along the way he's uncovered countless clues, stories and theories that he hasn't been able to investigate but that keep him awake at night. Until now.

In BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED, premiering fourth quarter 2010 on HISTORY(TM), he will investigate hidden clues, codes and symbols that surround us. The 10-part series will draw from Brad's fascination with history, serving as a foundation to inform the past and reveal valuable stories about the future such as, why did earlier generations leave these hidden treasures for us? What are the origins of these previously undiscovered and forgotten pieces of history... and what is their purpose? In fact, endless clues to the future are hidden in the present, yet they can only be revealed if we understand the past.

Among the mysteries DECODED will explore:

The real story behind the White House cornerstone, one of the first pieces of our democracy which has been missing for two centuries

The location of the lost Confederate Treasury

The hidden messages of the Statue of Liberty

Whether the Statue of Liberty is anti-religion

Brad will be assisted: Scott Rolle, a lawyer and Major in the U.S. Army Reserve who believes there is always more than meets the eye; Christine McKinley, a mechanical engineer who relies on facts and clear evidence in every situation; and Buddy Levy, a professor who believes history is accurate but knows there are two sides to every story. Together they will hunt down answers to some of the most provocative, perplexing mysteries - questions that have been asked for centuries yet until now have never been fully investigated.

Brad is known for the research he applies to all his novels. In fact, former Presidents William J. Clinton and George H.W. Bush have assisted him in his research - research that is so known for its accuracy that he has been a part of the Department of Homeland Security's Red Cell program, which helps explore new ways that terrorists may attack the US.

Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Fate and six other novels. His first non-fiction work Heroes For My Son recently hit the New York Times bestseller list. Meltzer is also author of the critically acclaimed comic books Identity Crisis and Justice League of America and is the first author to ever reach the #1 spot on both the New York Times and the Diamond comic book bestseller lists simultaneously. Meltzer's books have spent over eleven months on bestseller lists. His newest thriller, The Inner Circle, will be released in January 2011.
