Product Description

Review

Rollicking, globe-hopping, timely and prescient . . . this first novel just blows the doors off (C. J. Box)

Smart, edgy, fast-paced storytelling at its best (Alafair Burke)

From the first page it pulls you into a compellingly suspenseful story and delivers it at a breakneck pace (Alex Grecian)

Fans of 'Homeland' and '24' will love The Pattern of Fear - a rocket of a thriller that's fresh and cool and totally real (Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia and Buried Secrets)

By J. Morris TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 Jun. 2014
Format: Paperback
Garret Reilly is a 26 year old bond trader with a genius knack to spot patterns; it's making him rich, very rich. He increasingly finds his life boring and without direction, he drinks, womanizes and plays video games to numb the boredom. When he spots a market trend of someone dumping US Treasuries en masse, he takes it to his boss who relays it to the US Treasury. It becomes clear this is a sovereign state trying to devalue the US dollar; a stealth declaration of economic war. Before long the US government want Garrett to wage an unconventional war back on this new-found enemy - but are the explanations for the motivations true? Garretts distrust of authority puts him at odds to the rigid governmental structure, but if there is anyone who can spot the pattern to all of this it's Garrett.

A fast paced pulpy read - it really held my attention for the first 100 or so pages but began to wane as it got increasingly ridiculous - the ultimate fantasy of being plucked from the day job and being thrust into the foray of world changing events. Drew Chapman writes in a fluid style that is interesting and clear, the story flits about between different characters but is easy to follow and comes to a climactic finish. Garrett is an interesting character; petulant and impudent but you can't help but respect his talent - a more three-dimensional character than your usual action hero.

Recommended for a good read, touches on politics and economics but manages to keep the tempo up the whole way through. Definitely worth a read if you enjoyed Robert Harris' Fear Index.

For a first novel this one is unbelievable - brilliant story line and told by a new young master of the genre! Would highly recommend. Very well done indeed. The book arrived in excellent condition and at such a reasonable price too. Would highly recommend the seller too!

A lateral view of modern political warfare that has some odd resonance with today's reality.
I look forward to the sequel

HASH(0x974f94c8) out of 5 stars Good and then bad 18 July 2014
By Mr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well, the first half (approximately) is really good, I'd say worth 4 stars. Then suddenly, our hero the analyst becomes the strategist, and the whole story rockets downwards, getting more and more ridiculous. Also, there are quite a lot of unexplained subplots and details, which I found really annoying. Maybe the author already thought of a sequel, but in that case there isn't enough foundation to make it interesting. The second half I therefore think is a weak 2 stars, which is quite sad, because I liked the concept in the first half.
HASH(0x9738a330) out of 5 stars A great read! 11 Jun. 2014
By Steve P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
What a great read! A real page-turner of political intrigue, conspiracy, drawing on current global tensions with a story that is easy to believe. Superbly paced with short chapters that left me wanting to keep on reading. Drew Chapman has come up with a fascinatingly original plot and an ending that is just right. A remarkable achievement for a debut novel. Hard to imagine how something this good could be repeated, but let's hope that this is the first in a long writing career!
HASH(0x975df780) out of 5 stars Good holiday read 2 Jun. 2014
By Anne Denton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A fast moving great story. This reader does not mind scatological words provided they add to the yarn. In this case they were intrusive and repetitive and therefore boring. A bit of editing on that front would have been helpful. Otherwise a good holiday read.
