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.

Thomas Bolden, now Wall Street financier, once a street-smart kid, is soon to be engaged. When he and girlfriend are mugged, he chases the thugs and discovers the attack was a ruse to kidnap him. David Aaron Baker delivers a tightly paced action-packed story in even, measured tones that ratchet up the tension. He characterizes crooked cops and diabolical politicians masquerading as patriots with appropriate voices. Wolf, a ruthless mercenary skilled at torture, is portrayed with menace as he works on Bolden to extract information and leave his "mark" on him. The story is complicated and requires close attention, but it's worth the effort. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
