It’s The Jefferson Key, written by Steve Berry, read by Scott Brick, unabridged and out on CD from Random House Audio. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
At one point in American history, however, they tried to take out the wrong man. In 1832, an attempt was made on the life of Andrew Jackson. But the damp pistol held by the assassin failed to fire–twice! Surviving the attempt unscathed, Jackson figured out who was behind it and exacted his punishment not by destroying the letter but burying it in an undisclosed location recorded only in a document protected by a cipher invented by Jefferson himself, thereby leaving the Commonwealth in a legal limbo–unable to prove their protection if questioned. Now they’ve struck again. Deeply opposed to the efforts of President Danny Daniels to shut down certain aspects of the U.S. intelligence infrastructure, they have launched a massive attack on his motorcade in the middle of Times Square.The only person able to stop it is former government operative Cotton Malone, and at great risk to his own well being he manages to shut it down. But in the aftermath he learns that their plan had two parts. The first part is over, thanks to him; part two is just about to begin. His friend and former boss, Magellan Billet director Stephanie Nelle is being held captive in brutal fashion, and it’s on his shoulders whether or not she’ll survive. Now a race is on to find the letter–Malone hoping to destroy it, the Commonwealth hoping to use it to reassert their power–and the action moves from New York City to North Carolina and finally culminates in a spectacular fight on the high seas.
