It begins so innocently when Goldberg starts moonlighting for an eccentric, aging conservative billionaire whose final wish is to leave behind a memorial library about himself.
But the most memorable thing about him is a secret that must never be revealed. He is part of a plot to steal the presidential election if it appears that Augustus Winthrop Scott -a character who will remind you of the republican you love the most or love to hate the most – seems likely to lose the next election.
It's one of those moments when knowledge is a dangerous thing and a little knowledge is even more dangerous, and the men with the guns want to kill the fellow indexing the archives.
In the tradition of Carl Hiaasen and Elmore Leonard, The Librarian is a frenetic, scary, and darkly comic thriller that goes deep into the dark heart of election-year politics.
