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.
In The King of Fear, Garrett recognizes a string of events that could lead to economic Armageddon in the US: banks closing, grocery shelves lying empty, the nation's currency rendered worthless. Total chaos could engulf society within a matter of days. Garrett and the Ascendant team reunite to face enemies on all sides: a wounded Russia bent on keeping its crumbling empire in place, a cyber genius fixated on Garrett, a femme fatale willing to do anything to establish a new world order. In the midst of this, Garrett must also confront his own demons: his class rage, growing paranoia, and a dependency that he cannot seem to shake. After all, it only takes one card to make the whole house fall…
A hero with complete disregard for rules and boundaries, Drew Chapman's rogue genius gives readers "a wild ride through the headlines of our times" (Kirkus Reviews on The Ascendant) and this sequel will not disappoint.

"The once unthinkable financial Armageddon becomes a potential reality in Chapman's nonstop thriller. Ably narrated by George Newbern, the audiobook demonstrates the scary reality that results when financial genius Garrett Reilly recognizes that a series of events, including the assassination of the head of the Federal Reserve, could be the beginning of a terrorist attack with the potential to destroy financial markets. 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. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
