David Aaron Baker delivers a tightly paced action-packed story in even, measured tones that ratchet up the tension. He characterizes crooked cops and diabolical politicians masquerading as patriots with appropriate voices. Wolf, a ruthless mercenary skilled at torture, is portrayed with menace as he works on Bolden to extract information and leave his "mark" on him. The story is complicated and requires close attention, but it's worth the effort.

A light snow fell, adding a fresh layer to lawns already covered with six inches of the stuff. Icicles hung from bare branches that swayed in the wind. The forecast called for the brunt of the storm to hit the New York metropolitan area sometime that evening. Anywhere from six inches to two feet was expected. He turned up the heater a notch. The hamlet of Chappaqua belonged formally to the city of New Castle

Thomas Bolden grew up on the streets, his childhood a blur of fragmented memories.

Thomas Bolden grew up on the streets, his childhood a blur of fragmented memories. But now he’s managed to put his past behind him, find the woman he wants to share his life with, and carve out a successful career on Wall Street. Until, in the blink of an eye, his world is turned upside down. A bizarre kidnapping sends him fleeing for his life, his face everywhere on the TV news, and a violent, shadowy organization is framing him for crimes he did not commit. Desperately trying to get back to where he was just a day before, Bolden must re-learn the survival skills of his hardscrabble boyhood. But as Bolden–with just eleven dollars in his pocket and hunters all around him–survives one violent, harrowing hour after another, he makes a series of startling discoveries: about a mysterious woman wanted for murder…about an astounding secret rooted in history, among the country’s Founding Fathers and families…about a conspiracy lurking in the darkest corners of corporate America–and a deadly plan that only he can stop. And in the process, maybe Bolden will also find out who he really is....Furiously paced, filled with brilliantly drawn characters from politicians to patriots, from Wall Street players to battle-hardened cops, The Patriots Club is vintage Reich: brilliant, breathtaking, and impossible to put down until the final unforgettable page is turned.From the Hardcover edition.

Another of Mr Reich compelling stories. Fast paced, a little far fetched... but then is it really? Lots of action and twists and turns... hard to give more details without spoiling the plot... only one thing is certain, the reader wants to turn the page to know what comes next!

I like this author and having read his latest, Rules of Deception, I noted that he had written this book which I had missed. Sadly, it could have stayed that way and I would be none the worse off.

One gets the feeling that Mr. Reich was in a hurry to write this book and in doing so he develops a scattershot storyline with a variety of characters who seem more ready for the psychiatrist's couch than for the more serious job of directing the country in a sub rosa manner.

The "Club" has invited the newly elected president of the United States to join their ranks. She has declined. Therefore she must be eliminated and why not do it on innauguration day?

How this plan is discovered and dealt with has it's moments, but they are too few and too far between. I bought this book from an Amazon bookseller, and if you care to read it, I would suggest you save your money and do the same.

Enjoyed, good research always pays off. Reich has definitely joined my "author read list"! DCR

Reich's prior books I'd read benefited from straightforward and credible plots. This book has a plot that's way more convoluted and roundabout -- and more unlikely. I'm giving it 3 stars only because he's a good writer and because - as in all his books - the financial/banking details are fascinating and probably accurate. That his unarmed hero could keep getting away from these "all-knowing" and "all-powerful" forces strains credulity!

Think carefully about whether you want to spend 2 long evenings reading 540 pages that should have been more like 350.

I love good conspiracy books. I like a believable super hero. The plot of this novel is absurd. The hero, Thomas Bolden, was abandoned at age 6 by his mother. She was an extreme left wing radical who had been pursued by police for participating in a bombing. Bolden grew up in foster homes and after a tough childhood worked his way up enjoying a successful Wall Street career. He is also just about Mr. Perfect. All of a sudden he is targeted by a high powered right wing group called The Patriots Club. The Club has existed and evolved since the days of George Washington. According to the author this club, which has included all Presidents,has secretly and behind the scenes determined U.S. policy since the country's inception. A master computer selects Bolden as a threat and and a bizarre kidnapping of him and his girlfriend ensues. Bolden takes on everything and everyone in his path and ultimately saves the Republic from The Evil. It was tough to get thru all this nonsense.
Kept you guessing on some things and was a little too obvious in others. An interesting take on the history of the presidency. One of those books with an uneven pace but in an interesting way.
