While representing a wealthy tycoon and his ambitious and devious grandson, hard-boiled lawyer Jake Stone is saved from a vicious beating in a shady alley by a lovely young woman with a knack for the martial arts. Snowflake, she calls herself and quickly latches onto Jake for a wild ride through the underbelly of corporate America and beyond. But is she who she says she is, just a humble paralegal looking for a job, or is she a corporate spy, a gun runner, an assassin, or simply a nice girl on the hunt for a decent guy, or perhaps all of the above?
The big question is whether Jake will live long enough to find out.
"I grabbed the first volume of The Jake Stone Thrillers for $0.99 and started reading out of curiosity--after a few pages I couldn't put it down. Mr. Peters writes in a very fresh, authentic style, and the characters have a real charm. The plot is well developed and keeps the pages turning. I'm already buying the next few books in the series. Do yourself a favor and check it out!" Tiger03
�At 190 heart stopping pages Deception is a rollicking, action-packed thriller with plenty of bullets, bodies, karate chops, belly laughs and shady characters to enchant even the most demanding reader. I especially enjoyed Snowflake. Now there�s a girl who really knows how to kick butt in style! I look forward to reading the next volume in this wild and engrossing series.� Theodora K.

"The book is great, and surprisingly well developed, given all the twists and turns. This author has a way of vividly depicting events that has the reader SEEING the altercations and fights. Here's a story that's a good comedy ( or is it a farce?)! The ending is a good surprise, and I do wonder about the lawyer's next steps." Purplespa
