Publisher's Summary

American financial and political powers collide and conspire in a breakneck thriller from New York Times bestselling author Stephen Frey.

Andrew Falcon Jr. is the youngest hedge-fund manager to make partner at a powerful investment bank on Wall Street. His career is soaring, and his financial future is secured. But with fortune comes a high price.

Just as Falcon thought life couldn't get better, his niece Claire is kidnapped - yet her abductors have no interest in money. They want information. In exchange for Claire's safe return, Falcon must dig deep into his firm's affairs, uncovering secrets worse than he could ever imagine.

He discovers a conspiracy tied to the US government - a rogue faction is manipulating the American people to establish a new order. Now facing impossible odds and a plot that goes all the way up to the nation's leaders, Falcon must find a way to save not only his family but also his country.

Boring

The Publisher's write up sounded exciting. The book was not in the least exciting. The narrator was good, but didn't have much to work with. I gave it a good try, but had to quit.

just so bad

this was really bad I normally like Frey"s books but this one is really bad there are no redeeming characters the story plays on so many stereotypes of the worst order and it is also just mean.

one thing that I don't understand is why he would write a story about the son of the main character in his first book only to have him be dead seems like an odd choice.

Really great book

I'm a huge fan of Stephen Frey since the Chairman came up, and this book didn't disappoint.

Stephen Frey has lost his edge

I have read/listened to all of SF's books and in his earlier works he could be compared to Grisham and Baldacci but this book is a bit silly, far fetched and the dialogue is not as polished or realistic as I am used to from SF. The story is fun at times but you get the feeling that SF is now just banging out books for the money as opposed to being the best in class story teller he used to be. As retired military and current member of the financial services community I was disappointed with the lack of believable characters, situations and interactions. C'mon Stephen, you can do better than this! :-)

Classic vortex works despite cliches of gender, racism, wall st

Plausible trump era plot pushed to fascist consequences. If women character development was stronger and there was more nuance and complexity around the dog whistles of racism, misogyny, Wall Street, military I’d give it more stars.

The story grabs you from page1. I liked the action, and the variety and depth of the characters.

A bit far fetched

But still a fun read with likable characters....im more inclined to believe robots that turn into cars then what happens in this book... Lol... I don't know.... I guess if something like this could happen in real life then we're all screwed... Lol... There's not gonna be a falcon or Troy to save us

Ludicrous Book, Total Waste of Money

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I loved Stephen Frey's earlier books. But as time goes on they keep getting worse and worse. This author has some hang-up about Southern myths and descendants of Robert E. Lee being involved in all sorts of evil intrigue.The head of the world's largest hedge fund from Richmond, VA? I think Frey has lived near Washington DC for too long and is to busy nosing up to his New York buddies.

BTW, any President that would go through with the big 3 as outlined in this book would tank the US economy to depression era numbers. Ludicrous to think a politician from Texas would ever consider such a program.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen Frey again?

Will consider with caution

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Stephen Frey fails to impress in this novel

The book seemed to have potential but it just kept getting worse and worse... Dismissal at best.
