Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A really excellent modern action-packed story. It sets out the potential conflict between the traditionalists in the army reliant upon discipline and obeying orders to lateral thinking using the internet to deal with issues in an entirely different way. Events can be manipulated to promote or destroy; it’s frightening, a thought-provoking read. The closing section turns into ace stuff as war with China looms and the police and security forces search for a criminal mastermind who may or may not outwit them. Brilliant stuff with gripping twists and a fair spot of humour and human interest. Highly recommended.

Synopsis

The Pattern of Fear by Andrew Chapman

The Pattern of Fear is the blistering debut thriller by Drew Chapman. Garrett Reilly has a rare talent. He discerns the patterns in large amounts of information. He understands what's happening before others. He's ahead of the game. This makes Reilly very good at his Wall Street job, but it also makes him immensely valuable to the secretive government agencies charged with keeping America safe. Mourning the death of his brother in a pointless overseas war, Reilly doesn't want anything to do with them. And in any case, his gifts can only help pull the world back from the brink of annihilation if he can stay alive long enough to figure out what's going on...The Pattern of Fear is the debut thriller from Drew Chapman, the stand-out newcomer for 2014. Fans of Robert Ludlam, Allan Folsom and Robert Harris will be glued to this book.
