In this tense thriller, Christian Gillette, hero of The Protégé, is approached by a shadowy group representing vast wealth and vague motive. They’re a politically conservative alliance interested in a partnership with Gillette’s company, Everest Capital. Then he’s contacted by a charismatic liberal politician named Jesse Wood, who is about to announce his candidacy for president; Wood and his advisers want Gillette to run for vice president. Skeptical of both offers, Gillette tries to discern who can be trusted. But he soon realizes a colleague has ties to one party—and ultimately, he can’t trust anybody at all.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Prashant Singh | 1/5/2012

    " Nothing extra-ordinary. I was promised a financial thriller but its nothing but another conspiracy book, this time a twist on race relations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keegan | 10/15/2011

    " well currently, i find that this book requires at least an hour of focused reading at a time, which has been difficult so I am having trouble keeping characters straight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greer Andjanetta | 10/10/2011

    " A readable story about a group of wealthy, connected men who take it upon themselves to keep America 'pure', i.e. white. Politics, race and big business are all intertwined in this novel which is easy enough to read altho' not exciting or fast-paced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 9/22/2011

    " At times, I thought it would be a good. It had potential. However, I found it lacking. Bit disappointed. Twist and turns were a bit predictable. End didn't do it for me. Actually, it disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sanjay Gopal | 7/29/2011

    " My first Stephen Frey novel and it was so, so. Too many characters, sub-plots and plot lines to keep track of in the first 100 pages or so. It picks up the pace thereafter and moves to a quick finish. Overall, it failed to really impress but I will give another novel by this author a go. "

    Slightly convoluted with so many characters, and a somewhat tired Skulls-like storyline. But overall, pretty good. "
