(The first book in the Hayley Chill Thriller series)
A novel by

 
 
A CONSPIRACY TO KILL THE PRESIDENT
AND ONE WOMAN’S FIGHT TO STOP IT
 
'Full of twists, this one will keep you hooked to the very end' JAMES SWALLOW 
 
'One of the most surprising double-reverse plot twists I have seen in some time' NEW YORK TIMES
 
‘Trust no one’
 
The warning is loud and clear. Shortly after uttering it, the White House Chief of Staff is found dead in his home. It’s ruled as a heart attack. Only his intern, former soldier Hayley Chill, knows something is not right.
 
Starting her own investigation, Hayley uncovers a secret organisation buried in the furthest reaches of government.
 
THE DEEP STATE – noun
A covert state hidden within a government;
a secret organisation of high-level operatives;  
exerts control through manipulation and a culture of pain and fear.
 
When she discovers the plot to assassinate the president, they realise someone is on to them. How long will it be until they know that it’s her?
 
So Hayley must work like the Deep State:

Infiltrate.
Trust no one.
Kill – or be killed.


Fans of series like The Bodyguard and Designated Survivor, or books by of James Swallow, Terry Hayes, Gregg Hurwitz and Rob Sinclair will love this stunning debut. With twists you won’t see coming, this thriller is a true page-turner.
 
PRAISE FOR DEEP STATE

'This is going to be THE book for 2020'
'The definition of a great political thriller’
‘A gripping tale of political skulduggery that is deeper than it initially appears’ THE TIMES
‘Brilliantly fast-moving and absorbing… the twists just keep coming’ SUNDAY TIMES CRIME CLUB
'It’s unique, fresh and the word ‘twist’ is just not acceptable to cover what happens… SUPERB! 10/10'
'This one had great twists and turns. When I thought we were headed in one direction, it would veer off into another and I loved it' 

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book

"DEEP STATE is a modern-day whodunnit set in the political morass that is current Washington, DC. Riveting and engrossing with an atypical protagonist, it keeps you guessing until the final pages are turned. Chris Hauty has just placed a marker in the world of political thrillers." - Matthew Betley

"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

"Hauty provides a fresh twist on the American patriot. Hayley Chill has what it takes to carve out her place in today's thriller scene. She's shrewd, fierce, and always lands the blow that puts her on top." - Kyle Mills

"Full of twists and unexpected switchbacks, this one will keep you hooked to the very end." - James Swallow
