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.

Thriller about a collected group of businessmen, politicians and industrial bigwigs who use their influence to impose their narrow- minded ideology on those who don't agree with them, even resorting to using henchmen- former military personnel - to impose their will or even - kill. The corruption leads all the way to the highest level of government and corporate interests. Included in all of this is a plot against the "liberal president and the historical origin of the society

This sounded really boring but I liked the cover. And it was cool. Wall St banker's life suddenly turns to custard because the sneaky power boys are pulling strings behind the scenes and plotting to kill the new President.

I went beyond the 100-page rule. I gave this book 150 pages but it failed to grasp me or even make sense. I knew where the plot wanted to go, but I felt like the book was not taking me there
