    Just Another Damn Book Blog: “DEEP STATE is going to be the thriller everyone is talking about in 2020. There are a lot of great authors and a lot of great thrillers coming out this year. Chris Hauty does something that few of them do: he’ll surprise you. .Haley is a tough-as-nails protagonist and someone who is easy to rally behind. She shows great skill and tenacity. The story moves along at a breakneck clip with plenty of action along the way. Surprises keep coming one after the other in this outstanding debut thriller. This is a book that you’re going to want to talk to other people about. Fast-paced, twisty plot and great characters make this a book that demands to be read. Highly recommended.”

    A Book A Week: “With DEEP STATE, his debut novel, author and screenwriter Chris Hauty gives readers the first great thriller of the year. The prologue of the novel quickly endeared me to Haley as a character without hinting at any of the non-stop action to come. By engaging readers first with his character, Hauty imbues the novel with a depth and emotional connection that many thrillers brush over. Let’s be clear, there is plenty of plot and twits to burn through and keep the pages rapidly turning, but it is the thoughtful development of the main character that truly drives the story…Timely, character-driven, and full of action, Deep State by Chris Hauytty is pretty much everything you could hope from a modern thriller.”

    Kritters Ramblings: “The book’s central character is Haley Chill, who leaves the military to become a White House intern. Seeing this story through her eyes made the story feel so unique and different from your typical White House political thriller. Haley Chill, through her military training, is able to do things and notice things that most White House interns wouldn’t pick up on and I liked that she had this training to back her up.”
