The Devlin Deception
by Jake Devlin
Our Review of The Devlin Deception

Book One of The Devlin Quatrology

An Anti-Political Absurdist Thriller

"The explosive must-read of this decade"

The President, Congress, Supreme Court out, a no-BS dictator in. Snipers, assassins and spies (Oh, my!). A beautiful blonde, a bumbling beach bum, outrageous, offbeat humor, exotic erotics (Ooo!). A brain-twisting, gut-wrenching ride.

"Reads like Baldacci crossed with Monty Python."
"Nah, more like Clancy crossed with Mel Brooks."
(From two readers arguing with each other and the author.)

What could possibly go wrong when an iconoclastic, reclusive billionaire (nope, NOT Trump) buys and takes over the US federal government and starts to fix everything that's wrong with it? (Or what could go right?)

What could happen to the mellow, laid-back beach bum who's writing that story? (Hint: In part, a black helicopter and a few government agencies are involved.) And who is the beautiful woman who slithers into his life? What deep and painful secrets might be haunting her?

And what deep and possibly dark secrets might HE be hiding? But most of all, what's so damned funny? And how much sex is too much ... or too little?

Begin your journey through this absurdist blend of fiction and reality (and some obligatory gratuitous eroticism) and see for yourself. (Nobody has yet guessed the surprising twist in the Epilogue.)
