'Full of twists and unexpected switchbacks, this one will keep you hooked to the very end' JAMES SWALLOW Sunday Times bestselling author of Nomad THE DEEP STATE - noun A covert state hidden within a government; a secret organisation of high-level operatives; exerts control through manipulation and a culture of pain and fear. It is entrenched. It is hidden. It is deadly. Who can you trust? *** The White House Chief of Staff is dead, discovered collapsed in his home. Paramedics say it was a heart attack, but something's not right - and only his intern, Hayley Chill, can see it. After her fears are dismissed by police, Hayley uncovers an organisation buried in the furthest reaches of government. Now she has no way of knowing who she can trust. Then things get really dangerous. There is a plot to assassinate the president, one they are ruthless about hiding. They know that someone is on to them, and soon they will know that it's her. So Hayley must work like the Deep State: Infiltrate. Trust no one. Kill - or be killed. *** WHY READERS HAVE BEEN FLOORED BY DEEP STATE . . . 'Deep State has just become the first author since Sarah Pinborough to completely floor me with a pitch perfect unexpected resolution. Brilliant' 'This one had great twists and turns. When I thought we were headed in one direction, it would veer off into another and I loved it' 'This is going to be THE book for 2020' 'Somewhere between David Baldacci's Absolute Power and Vince Flynn's Tern Limits. Timely set ups makes this page turner unputdownable . . .'

Deep State

Author: Chris Hauty Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/01/2020

Recently elected president Richard Monroe - populist, controversial and divisive - is at the centre of an increasingly polarised Washington, DC. Never has the partisan drama been so tense or the paranoia so rampant. In the midst of contentious political turf wars, the White House chief of staff is found dead in his house. A tenacious intern discovers a single clue that suggests he died from something other than natural causes, and it seems there may be a deep conspiracy running beneath the surface of everyday events: powerful government figures are scheming to undermine the rule of law - and democracy itself. Soon, allies are exposed as enemies, once-dependable authorities fall under suspicion, and it seems no one is who they say they are. The unthinkable is happening. The Deep State is real. Who will die to keep its secrets? Who will kill to uncover the truth? 'A propulsive, page-turning, compelling, fragmentation grenade of a debut thriller' C.J. Box, author of Wolf Pack 'A modern-day whodunnit set in the political morass that is current Washington, DC. Riveting and engrossing with an atypical protagonist, it keeps you guessing until the final pages are turned. Chris Hauty has just placed a marker in the world of political thrillers' Matthew Betley, author of Overwatch
