THE DEEP STATE – noun

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:
Trust no one.
Kill – or be killed.
I am all for an addictive thriller, once I got through the first few chapters that were for me a little slow, the story picks up and becomes quite fast paced. I liked the fact that Hayley who is the main characters is a woman as normally it is men who portray this type of character. She is dynamic and feisty and it is an altogether a thrilling read that will make your jaw drop a few times. I couldn’t believe this was a debut novel.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
