Brad Meltzer's new book is called "The First Conspiracy: The Secret Plot to Kill George Washington", and is his first non-fiction book. Like his fiction best-sellers, it starts with a bang on the first page, and takes the reader on quite the ride. He's known not only for his thrillers, but also the "I Am..." children's book series, and even comic books.

FOX's Tonya J. Powers sat down with Brad to talk about the new book, but also asked him how he kept going after getting two dozen rejections for his first one.
