Publisher's Summary

When a corrupt think tank, The Foundation for a New America, enlists a Taiwanese terrorist to bomb a World Trade Organization conference, the US and China are put on the path to war.
Star journalist Jack Emery is pulled into a story far more dangerous than he could have imagined. Because the Foundation's deputy director, the ruthless Michelle Dominique, recognizes that whoever controls the message controls the world. And she will take control, no matter the price.
Enter Jack's boss, Ernest McDowell, owner and chairman of the largest media empire on the planet. In the midst of political upheaval, EMCorp is about to become the final play in the Foundation's plan. When Dominique traps the EMCorp owner in her web, Jack's the only one left to expose the conspiracy before it's too late.
As the world powers smash each other against the anvil of Taiwan, Jack will risk everything to battle the Foundation and prevent them from taking control amid the devastation of a global war.

The conspiracy theories continue!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If my friend was into an action/conspiracy theory potboilers, then yes. Otherwise, not so much.

Would you recommend The Foundation to your friends? Why or why not?

As above.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't recall listening to this performer in the past, so I don't have a comparable. That said, it was a solid , and actually strong performance, consistent and realistic.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Unlikely. Not my style.

Any additional comments?

I was provided my copy of this audiobook by the author in exchange for this review. This is a relatively solid offering, with interesting underlying concepts and lots of action. Admittedly it is a bit of a stretch from a suspension of disbelief POV, but it does make some interesting points.
Some more editing and trimming is required, but on balance worth the credit, esp. for the type of book it is. Recommended.

A Great Debut!

This is a well thought out political thriller that keeps you turning the page. Following an array of characters on all sides of the moral fence, there's plenty of action and thrills to propel the story along, nicely balanced with moments of intrigue and character examination. I think that's what I like best about this book - the antagonists have their reasons for doing what they do, they aren't just 'bad guy' cardboard cut-outs. And the 'lead' Jack Emery isn't made out to be something he's not. He's a reporter whose skills lay in his investigation and writing - he doesn't suddenly turn into an action superhero - and I like that. Most of all, this book makes the reader reflect on their real world and start to question just how close to reality this story actually is - which is a little terrifying! The Foundation had great narration too!
