Publisher's Summary

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.

Hayley Chill isn’t your typical West Wing intern. Ex-military, and as patriotic as she is principled, she is largely vilified by her peers and lauded by her superiors - it’s a quick way of making enemies.

It is Hayley who finds the body of the White House chief of staff, Peter Hall, on his kitchen floor, having died from an apparent heart attack. It is also Hayley who notices a single clue which suggests his death was deliberate, targeted. That he was assassinated.

Unsure who to trust, Hayley works alone to uncover a wide-ranging conspiracy that controls the furthest reaches of the government. And Hall is just the beginning - the president is the next target.

Hayley must now do the impossible: stop an assassination when she has no idea who the enemy is, all while staying hidden, with Peter’s final words to her ringing in her ears: Trust no one. Because the Deep State will kill to silence her. And they are closing in.

It is entrenched.

It is hidden.

It is deadly.

Interesting story but badly read.

The narrator ruined it. It was difficult to follow in places because she raced through it. She had a flat, dull and rather abrasive reading voice which made it all unpleasant to listen to.

I really had to persevere in order to follow what was otherwise a good book. That said, I do find it rather annoyingly lazy when authors don’t take time to establish ‘relationships’ in their characters but offer rather lame instant connections instead.

If you’re considering this book then I’d recommend actually reading it yourself rather than bothering with this poorly read audible version.

Not bad

Oh it’s an ok thriller. Quite exciting and the protagonist is amazingly clever and can do everything. Not sure I would recommend this book though but I’m tough.
