A booky health warning should be stamped on this cover… once you start you won’t want to stop! I read right through to 03:30am, until I had devoured every single and absolutely wonderful last drop. Hayley Chill, ex-military and champion boxer, is a new West Wing intern in the White House. When she finds the body of the Chief of Staff, she also finds a clue that it wasn’t the reported heart attack, and everything now points to an assassination plot on the president. The first few pages really sum up Hayley Chill, she is courageous, honourable, and can kick some serious ass. In other words, she is someone you would most definitely want on your side. Chris Hauty has the ability to highlight a life in just a few sentences, adding to the vivid overall picture in my mind. Deep State is a fast-moving, full-on adrenaline hit. Please, please tell me that this is the start of a new series, because I want more! Chosen as a Liz Robinson pick of the month and LoveReading Star Book, because Deep State really is that addictive.

Mind stopping, heart racing - you'll love the tension on every page. Brilliantly written, and you're with Hayley every step of the way.

Heart-stopping almost from page one. You're with Haley on every page - talking to her, warning her, worrying for her. You won't want to put this book down until you've finished it. An absolutely brilliant book all the way through. Fast, energetic, amazing - and the twist at the end is something you would never in a million years, guess before it's revealed to you.

Elizabeth Anne Rhodes

A gripping political thriller with a feisty female protagonist - don’t underestimate Hayley Chill!

Deep State is an engaging political thriller set in the White House. Hayley Chill, a young military veteran, joins the White House as an intern. However, she soon becomes aware of the dangerous undercurrents of subterfuge within the Secret Service and the White House itself. After Hayley discovers the body of the murdered White House Chief of Staff she inadvertently finds herself at the centre of a dangerous power struggle and an even more alarming plot.

I enjoyed reading Deep State, though would say to any reader that you need to continue right to the very end!

Annie Day

Well written, with a fast-paced plot, this is a book you will want to stay up to finish.

This book is a rare combination of excellent writing and a cracking story. It's written in the present tense and this, coupled with the concise writing, gives the plot a sense of urgency. What I particularly like is the way the author projects forward, using the future tense, in order to explain what happens to some of the main characters. The heroine, Hayley, is enigmatic, but although she is a woman of few words, her character comes through. If I have any criticism of this book, it is that some of the characters are two dimensional but that did not detract from my enjoyment. The author grabs the reader's attention at the beginning of the book and takes you on a roller coaster journey.
