Honest FBI agents go head to head with the operatives of the Deep State.

Plenty of thrills and spills in this book, and the author excels at chase scenes. He also presents a loathsome, vile, and downright nasty villain against which his heroes must strive.

Some of the plotting could have been tighter and more attention given to editing for grammar and misplaced words.

I particularily like the author's visual style. The imagery is well captured.

Overall, a decent first effort for a new author, and a good demonstration that the author can put a story together.
