Overview

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.

"A most interesting version of the usual lawyer vs the bad guys novel. This book is an easy read and makes you want more." RRCERNY

"Love this author and find his writings mesmerizing and his vocabulary is top notch." Brandon Zimmerman

"If you're looking for entertainment, aren't scared off by strong, beautiful women, enjoy taking your thrills with some laughs and are willing to pay 99 cents, this book is for you."

"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

"Love this writing style. New characters are easily introduced while developing the intriguing story line. Rapid moving story allows you see what you are reading. I am officially a fan."

"This was a great read - compelling, entertaining and definitely a sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller. I'm searching other books by the author already!" P. Sands

"Great series, loved each and every volume in this fast paced, futuristic series. Loved it! No amount of words can say how unique these stories are!" Gloria M.

"I blindly chose this author, and I am so glad I did. I couldn't put my kindle down. Great book!" Sue

"Of course it was good, it's a Jake Stone thriller!!!" tc

�There�s no question that Peters is a master wordsmith.� Gerry B�s Book Reviews

T.L. Peters' way of writing is wonderful.
Linda A. Root
"The way to read this series is to start with Deception, Book One, and keep reading as long as Peters keeps on writing....These books are just plain fun." Linda A. Root, "a prosecutor" and author of the acclaimed novel, The First Marie and the Queen of Scots
Da K
�I originally bought a Jake Stone novel because it was 99 cents. Then I got hooked and bought all the rest of the novels! I love Snowflake - she gives feminism a new face! Jake is a lovable, henpecked guy. The women are all great. I can hardly wait for a new one to be published.�

I got this book as a gift. It is hard to believe how poorly written it is. Don't waste your money on it. I plan to make the person who gave this book to me read it.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!! Too short for the money & weirdly written and ended weirdly too.

I thought this would be more like an Alex Cross series. It is not. In fact, the story line is quite unbelievable. I bought the first 5 books to read while on a trip. I didn't even get through the first book as the book was like a comic in word-form.

If you like WWF or similar activities, you'll enjoy this series. Not my interest so I didn't care for the series. I purchased before I read the first one and regretted the subsequent purchases.

Reading this book was like watching a Wylie Coyote cartoon: absurd situation after absurd situation. It was humorous, although I'm certain the humor was unintentional.

Having difficulty finishing this one. Bought it because of the good reviews and the fact it is a series, but I don't know.

A very hokey type read, like watching the old batman tv series shows. But it was fun and interesting. Worth 99 cents!

Dumb character, stoooopid as a bocks of rox.

I have only read a third of this book and I am basically forcing myself to finish to see if it gets better. This must be the author's first attempt at a novel. Obvious next steps in a story are missed. If the primary partner of a law firm is found dead, how can that be ignored for the next 15 pages - hello, police investigation. And that is just one of many - really silly plot at this point.
