Deep State Chris Hauty read online review & book description:

Editor’s Choice from The New York Times Book Review
A Los Angeles Times Bestseller
Indie Next Pick for January

“One of the more surprising double-reverse plot twists…in some time.” —The New York Times

Deep State is a propulsive, page-turning, compelling fragmentation grenade of a debut thriller.” —C.J. Box, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wolf Pack and The Bitterroots

“The plot...rings eerily true...will keep you turning the pages well into the night.” —Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL and acclaimed author of The Terminal List and True Believer

In this white-knuckled, timely, and whip-smart debut thriller, a deadly plot against the president’s life emerges from the shadows of the Deep State.

Recently elected President Richard Monroe—populist, controversial, and divisive—is at the center of an increasingly polarized 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, ominous clue that suggests he died from something other than natural causes, and that a wide-ranging conspiracy is running beneath the surface of everyday events: powerful government figures are scheming to undermine the rule of law—and democracy itself. Allies are exposed as enemies, once-dependable authorities fall under suspicion, and no one seems to be who they say they are. The unthinkable is happening. The Deep State is real. Who will die to keep its secrets and who will kill to uncover the truth?

  • Nice but silly ending

    By SCS 65
    Was a nice story. Easy to grow to like the main character and world she is in. The twist at the end killed it for me. Was a silly end to what was otherwise an interesting story.
  • Excellent

    By ElsieW.
    From the first page to the shocking last, I was hooked. I read hundreds of books a year with political thrillers being one of my favorite genres. Looking forward to reading Savage Road!!
  • Meh

    By kiitttyykat
    The book was interesting at times but seemed a little too shallow and try hard. I was ready for a decent ending but was disappointed when it plunged into an entirely new plot. Not going to read another book in the series.
  • Not a cure for the COVID blues ...

    By scrabble tile too
    Too fantastical with many abrupt twists and turns. I didn’t read the last few pages, I just couldn’t take any more. Some good moments early on convinced me to give the book my time, but by the end the convoluted and cutesy twists were too much.
  • Had to stop

    By jmacbain
    While the intern heroine is quite appealing and has impressive talents, the plot is way too convoluted to be believed. Yes, I know it’s fiction but I need some semblance to reality to read a book like this. I just couldn’t do it.
  • Good read

    By Eternaljourney
    Not at all a bad read for a first time published author. Grab the lookup tool as you will have to decipher a few words’ meanings if you don’t play crosswords. This work is truly inspired and analogous to the current times. You will feel an instant connection to the plot and main character. Enjoy!
  • Excellent Book!

    This was an exciting read. The surprise ending caught me completely off guard. You’ll love it. Hope there’s a sequel.

    It’s like a well written scooby doo.
  • Sheltering in place relief

    By WET Sr
    My wife and I are of two minds about Deep State. 1. It is the perfect escape from Shelter in Place confinement. 2. We wish that it had been 1,000 pages. Each of us blew through it in less than 48 hours. We could not put it down. Each of us was immersed in literature and composition in college. We marveled at the keen attention to character and plot development throughout. The roller coaster movement of the plot was perfection. The climax to conclusion resolve was extraordinary - and THEN the dessert. We cannot wait for the next product of this incredible author. Please make it soon - consistent with the gold standard quality of your maiden (no pun) offering.
