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.
"This is a roller-coaster ride.... Reich keeps the tension level appropriately high throughout, and Bolden is an engaging "ordinary guy" protagonist."—San Francisco Chronicle
"I thoroughly enjoyed the intrigue and suspense that Reich creates as well as the multi-dimensional characters.... An engaging read."
