Chris Hauty’s shocking debut thriller is on shelves today! More buzz after the jump:

Here’s just some of the praise that reviewers have heaped on DEEP STATE, a twisty, action-packed tale of political maneuvering and powerful conspiracies:

Publishers Weekly: “A refreshing change from the typical male action hero, Hayley is a capable, kick-ass, and sharp woman from unassuming roots.”

Kirkus Reviews: “Hayley Chill is no ordinary intern: She comes to the job from the military, after life experiences more varied than her companion interns, and is more self-possessed and focused than they are…Cute and savvy as a Swiss Army knife, there’s nothing she cannot accomplish.”

The Real Book Spy: “With his super-charged plot and a perfectly-timed, mind-bending twist, Chris Hauty becomes the latest writer to take the thriller world by storm . . . Deep State will compete for best debut novel of 2020 and have readers dying for the anticipated follow-up.”

BookTrib: “Screenwriter Chris Hauty’s talents are on full display in his terrific debut, Deep State, a crackling and perfectly timed political thriller…The difference maker here is the pitch-perfect development and depiction of Haley Chill who is anything but what her last name represents. She’s a stellar series hero in the making and here’s hoping Deep State is only the first time we see her.”

Library Journal: “Deep State is a compelling page-turner with an unpredictable last-minute twist that will knock you off your feet… Perhaps ironically, I really think this book would appeal equally to suspense-loving readers on either side of the political spectrum!”

Lima Charlie: “…Captures you from the beginning, introducing a new type of heroine. Hayley Chill is beautiful, courageous, and tough…clear your schedule, as this one will require reading in one sitting.”

Jon Crunch: “Deep State is a terrific entry in the thriller game — featuring a feisty new protagonist in Hayley Chill. With a hair-raising twist in the final pages, Hauty proves a capable craftsman who will have readers thirsting for more.”
