The King of Fear: Part One

Book 1, King of Fear Series - A Garrett Reilly Thriller

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


King of Fear can either be read as a full-length ebook or in three serialized ebook-only parts. This is part one of three.

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.

Now in Part One of Drew Chapman’s thrilling sequel The King of Fear, Garrett Reilly is desperately trying to put the events of the Ascendant behind him. But when the President of the Federal Reserve is assassinated, fingers point to Garrett. On the run from the government and following an ever-shifting trail of clues, Garrett soon realizes that he’s more than a target to the shadowy force hunting him. He’s their first step towards total economic collapse.

Faced with a mounting international menace, cyber attacks and the fate of American security, Garrett makes the call. He must convince the most unlikely team of geniuses to join the fight again—before it’s too late. Drew Chapman’s critically acclaimed rogue hero is back in a series called a “wild ride through the headlines of our times” (Kirkus Reviews).

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 14, 2015 – An eccentric genius is all that stands between the U.S. and total financial collapse in Chapman's first-rate sequel to 2014's The Ascendant. Garrett Reilly, who has a gift for detecting patterns, has put that talent to work in creating the Ascendant project, "an attempt to assemble a team of out-of-the-mainstream thinkers to help America fight the next generation of wars." Though the program succeeded in thwarting a Chinese cyberattack, Garrett quit after suffering psychological and physical damage. Now his work as an investment analyst alerts him to another alarming problem evidence of an "enormous pool of money" accumulated in a private equity exchange. Meanwhile, a hit woman murders the head of the New York Federal Reserve; she accuses Garrett of ordering the killing before taking her own life. The allegation puts him on the run and into the path of an elusive Russian crook who may be his intellectual equal. Chapman makes the battle of wits as suspenseful as a standard action thriller.
