The Ascendant Book Cover

Hidden deep within the figures tracking the ups and downs of the stock market lies a terrifying truth: America is under attack. Our government…our economy…our very way of life are in the cross hairs of a ruthless enemy…and no one knows. Except one man.

Garrett Reilly has a knack for numbers. He sees patterns no one else can. His gift has made him a rising star on Wall Street. But when he notices that two hundred billion dollars’ worth of U.S. Treasury bonds are being sold off at a terrifying rate, his gift makes him the most wanted man alive.


The Ascendant is a rollicking, globe-hopping, timely, and prescient page turner – a twenty first century thriller.
