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.
It is entrenched.
It is hidden.
It is deadly.
Who can you trust?
The White House Chief of Staff is dead, discovered collapsed in his home. Paramedics say it was a heart attack, but something's not right - and only his intern, Hayley Chill, can see it.
After her fears are dismissed by police, Hayley uncovers an organisation buried in the furthest reaches of government. Now she has no way of knowing who she can trust.
Then things get really dangerous.
There is a plot to assassinate the president, one they are ruthless about hiding. They know that someone is on to them, and soon they will know that it’s her. So Hayley must work like the Deep State: Infiltrate. Trust no one. Kill – or be killed.
