The story centres around Max Easton, an ex-spy brought back into the field to avenge the death of his son. He will find himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war and a conspiracy to profit from the spread of chaos throughout the Middle East. The story asks: can we escape our past? Do second chances really exist? And so begins a gripping emotional quest of a father in pursuit of answers, desperate to protect his family. DEEP STATE explores a world in which war is the continuation of commerce by other means, where cash is derived from chaos. This is a story of supremely high stakes – a conspiracy that could topple governments.
