Read Caroline Baum's Review
Author Drew Chapman may be a debut novelist but he has serious chops when it comes to plotting: he writes for US TV so he understands momentum, tension and suspense. This is an almost plausible complex thriller built on American paranoia about China’s increasing power. It pulls together financial, military and political scenarios of fear and collapse with taut, brisk urgency. Our hero, Garrett Reilly, has no morality at the outset. He’s cocky about his own brilliance at numerical recognising patterns, but indulges in a little too much dope which makes him an unpredictable recruit for the intelligence agency that spots his rare skill.
