"Chapman's novel is The Hunt for Red October meets Hackers...a must-read for international-thriller fans."
— Booklist (Starred Review)
"Fans of Homeland and 24 will love The Ascendanta rocket of a thriller that's fresh and cool and totally real."
— Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia and Buried Secrets
“From its first page, The Ascendant pulls you into a compellingly suspenseful story, and delivers it at a break-neck pace. Drew Chapman demonstrates the assured hand of an author on his twentieth novel, not his first. I couldn’t put it down!”
— Alex Grecian, New York Times bestselling author of The Yard
“Political thriller? International thriller? Financial thriller? Whatever you call it, The Ascendant is smart, edgy, fast-paced storytelling at its best. Its unlikely hero, Garrett Reilly, reminded me of a young Jack Reacher as a tech-savvy bond analyst. Drew Chapman is a debut novelist to watch.”
— Alafair Burke, bestselling author of If You Were Here
“Like his intriguing protagonist Garrett Reilly, author Drew Chapman possesses startling skills and this first novel just blows the doors off. The Ascendant is a rollicking, globe-hopping, timely and prescient page-turner—a Twenty-First Century thriller that once begun refuses to yield or loosen its grip on the reader. A stunning debut.”
