The CommissionSERIES

Deep State

Where would you head to if you had to disappear? Where would you go if the deep state was after you? If your life was at risk, whereabouts in America could or would you hide?

I couldn’t imagine a better place to disappear than the Florida Everglades. Wild, dangerous, mosquitos, uninhabited, oppressive heat, thousands of small swampy islands over thousands of square miles, remote, and for those with survival skills, a smart place to drop off the grid. But what if the people after you, a team of assassins working for the deep state, have orders to track you down and then kill you, no matter the cost?

What happens then?

That’s the problem Nathan Stone has to deal with in my latest American Ghost thriller, REQUIEM (Thomas & Mercer), out today exclusively on Amazon.

Here’s what you need to know:

Nothing and no one can stop assassin Nathan Stone.

When black-ops asset Nathan Stone took out the heads of the Commission, a secret deep-state organization, he thought he’d destroyed them for good. Now he’s gone off the grid, trying to get as far away from his past as possible. But the Commission isn’t done with him yet.

Lying low in a Miami bar, Stone knows something’s up when an alluring actress strikes up a conversation with him. His suspicions are correct. The Commission is hot on his trail, and Stone is soon forced to run deep into the heart of the Everglades with the terrified woman as his hostage. He’s the Commission’s number one target—and this time nothing will stop them from eliminating him.

But Nathan Stone is no ordinary target. The crew of mercenary assassins on his heels have no idea what’s in store for them on the River of Grass. Because the hunt is on, and they picked the wrong prey.

American Ghost

Rogue book cover

I’ve been keeping this news under wraps for a while now. I’ve been sworn to secrecy. Seriously. But I’m very excited to reveal that in summer 2018, I’ve got a brand new thriller series being launched.

The forthcoming American Ghost® series kicks off with Rogue (Thomas & Mercer) which will be published worldwide on 7 June 2018.

And I’ve got to say, I had a blast writing it. Writers love going off the deep end with characters. Trust me. And my terrifying protagonist, Nathan Stone, originally from the lower east side in New York city, is a perfect vehicle for that. His past is as murky and mysterious as the shadowy organisation who control him.

Here’s an overview of the American Ghost series which is launched in summer 2018:

After he was critically wounded while serving as a covert CIA operative, everyone thought Nathan Stone was dead. But behind closed doors, he was rehabilitated by a highly secretive government organization known as the Commission, given a new identity and appearance, and remoulded into a lethal assassin. His brief: to execute kill orders drawn up by the Commission, all in the name of national security. The Commission owns him, but Stone knows one wrong move could turn him from loyal asset to hunted man.

The first book in the series sees Nathan Stone being housed at a secret facility in Scotland.

Rogue concerns a deep-state US organization who have a top-secret kill list—and a popular senator is on it.

Here’s an overview of Rogue:

Nathan Stone was killed in action while serving as a covert CIA operative. Or so everyone thought. In reality he’s become a ghost, a black-ops asset with a new identity and controlled by a secret government organisation. The Commission has one aim: to hunt down and assassinate anti-establishment enemies of the state.

Its number one target is Senator Brad Crichton, an ambitious politician with growing popularity. Stone’s orders are to take him out. The kill list is leaked to a journalist —whose own name is on the list. But a short while after the journalist tries to alert the senator, he is found dead in suspicious circumstances. All the while, Stone is closing in on the senator.

He knows that one wrong foot will put him in the firing line. But where national security is at stake, the hunter can quickly become the hunted . . .
