We're told by experts that the Fed is our number one inflation fighter, our protector against economic meltdown. Certainly, any person who cares about our country would accord it only the highest respect. But Preston Mathews wants to destroy the Fed. And he's apparently surrendered everything -- including the woman he loves -- to do so. Who is this renegade who wishes to bring back the dark days of despair, as his critics charge? He's the Fed's top gun, the lord of interest rates . . . the chairman of the Federal Reserve. Combining a high-energy plot with scholarly research, The Flight of the Barbarous Relic pits the entrenched forces of inflation against a growing underground movement that builds to a showdown between the world's two most powerful men . . . with the fate of the country hanging on the outcome.
