The blistering sequel to The Ascendant: an action-packed thriller starring a bond trader turned antihero.

Unlikely patriot Garrett Reilly can identify threats against America from both inside and outside the nation’s borders. But now the whole world’s economy is at risk …

Garrett Reilly sees what others do not: numbers, patterns, a nation on the brink of collapse. His unique talents saved countries from falling into a world war in The Ascendant. But it also made him a marked man?marked by terrorist groups, marked by the US Government.

Now in Part One of Drew Chapman’s thrilling sequel The King of Fear, Garrett Reilly is desperately trying to put the events of the Ascendant behind him. But when the president of the Federal Reserve is assassinated, fingers point to Garrett. On the run from the government and following an ever-shifting trail of clues, Garrett soon realizes that he’s more than a target to the shadowy force hunting him. He’s their first step towards total economic collapse.

Faced with a mounting international menace, cyber attacks and the fate of American security, Garrett makes the call. He must convince the most unlikely team of geniuses to join the fight again—before it’s too late. Drew Chapman’s critically acclaimed rogue hero is back in a series called a “wild ride through the headlines of our times” (Kirkus Reviews).

Quotes & Awards

  • “An eccentric genius is all that stands between the US and total financial collapse in Chapman’s first-rate sequel to 2014’s The Ascendant…Chapman makes the battle of wits as suspenseful as a standard action thriller.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Terrorism, economic warfare, and ‘too big to fail’ banks lend this thriller a sense of urgency. Who knew international economics, the Federal Reserve Bank, and a room full of geeks could be so much fun, though Chapman gave us a hint in the first novel in this series, The Ascendant…Ascendant frantically connects the dots to Markov’s ultimate target and ends up in a game of chicken…and the gamble is breathtaking. Chapman again delivers a crisp thriller, tapping themes of our times that daily news has made commonplace.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Chapman’s nonstop thriller [is] ably narrated by George Newbern…Newbern brings Chapman’s plot to life with a steady newscaster-like style that grabs the listener and never lets go. When events heat up, so does the pace of Newbern’s presentation, which takes on a staccato dynamic to capture Reilly’s brilliant insights while mimicking the rhythm of the once omnipresent stock market tickertape. Listeners who enjoy a good thriller will enjoy this audiobook.”
