A slow start in the first third of the book, and not the most layered story, but a quick and entertaining read. ( )

A group (dating back to George Washington's era) of influential people from the political and industrial arena meet on a regular basis to secretly shape the future of the US and the world. They will stop at nothing to get their way. An innocent bystander, Thomas Bolden is mistakenly caught in their crosshairs and a series of increasingly frightening events take place.

A page turner...but I listened ( )

The Patriots’ Club was one of those books that I have been wanting to read for quite sometime now. I have read several books by Reich in the past and considering this was one of the first of his books to have been made into a movie, I was all excited about it. But, as with any book where the expectations are very high, there is a high probability of disappointment.

The Patriots’ Club is about a secret Club of , well patriots, whose super computer system detects that Thomas Bolden, your regular investment banker is a threat to the security of the world’s super power. One day, Thomas Bolden is basking in the warm sunshine of his immense achievements at Harrington Weiss, the company for which he works, and the next day, he is the America’s Most wanted criminal and all because a little toy, controlled by the rich and powerful decides that he needs some looking after. This action packed thriller follows Bolden through some of the most dangerous parts of New York as he and his girlfriend Jenny try to beat the system, which is pretty much everyone from the FBI to the guy next door, who are bent on getting a piece of Bolden, preferably alive. Without giving away much of the story, suffice it to say that there are a few twists towards the end, which the reader definitely does not see coming.

Forget the Da Vinci Code. The Patriots Club is a conspiracy that is home grown with a brotherhood holding hands through generations of Americans. Christopher Reich combines a couple winning plots and adds a few twists of his own for a winning story in The Patriots Club.

Early in the book I wanted to scan through page after page. Not because the writing was poor, rather I was anxious to find some resolution and simply settle into the meat of the plot. Having read a couple of Reich's books, I knew this to be unwise. A careful and thoughtful reader will pick up little clues along the way. Again, Reich did not disappoint.

Much of the plot line is guessable. However, there is enough variation and simply good writing to carry the reader to the end for a satisfying conclusion.

Four stars - not five because I guessed the end a bit too early. ( )

Plenty of conspiracies around as a new president is inaugurated. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 044024143X, Mass Market Paperback)

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.
