USA Today bestselling author Ward Larsen’s globe-trotting, hard-hitting assassin, David Slaton, returns for another breathless adventure!
In a Syrian palace, the presidents of Russia and Syria undertake a clandestine meeting. No staff or advisors are permitted in the room. No records are kept. By necessity, however, there are two witnesses: the interpreters. The Russian, Ludmilla Kravchuk, returns to her hotel room burdened by what she has heard. When her Syrian counterpart is murdered before her eyes, Kravchuk fears she is next and goes into hiding in Syria.
The CIA gets word of the defection. Desperate to uncover the purpose of the meeting, they task their newest off-the-books operator–legendary assassin David Slaton–to undertake a daring rescue. Deep inside Syria’s war-torn borders, what Slaton finds is a plot that will tear the Middle East apart. And one that only he can stop.
“Highly reminiscent of Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series.” –David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author
THE RUSSIAN INTERPRETER, LUDMILLA KRAVCHUK GOES INTO HIDING IN SYRIA…
CAN LEGENDARY ASSASSIN DAVID SLATON UNRAVEL A SINISTER PLOT BEFORE THE MIDDLE EAST IS IN RUINS?
Ward Larsen is the USA Today bestselling author of espionage thrillers. A six-time winner of the Florida Book Award, his first novel, The Perfect Assassin, is in pre-production as a motion picture with Amber Entertainment. A former Air Force fighter pilot, he has also served as an airline captain, and is a trained aircraft accident investigator.
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?
“The plot of Chris Hauty’s DEEP STATE rings eerily true in a novel that will keep you turning the pages well into the night. Be warned, you might not look at newspaper headlines the same way come morning. In a country with a government of the people, by the people and for the people, is the DEEP STATE really pulling the strings?” (Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL and critically acclaimed author of THE TERMINAL LIST and TRUE BELIEVER )
