Overview

There are only a few good solutions in a world gone mad.

America has disappeared some years ago. A neo-fascist Party has come to power in the UK. Russia has expanded south. Ships leaving continental European waters are attacked. China is on the rise.

A submarine hurtles through the cold dark waters of the Atlantic en route to an unknown destination. Only the ship’s doctor knows its true mission, but he is not who he appears to be. Raised as a perfect assassin by a mysterious organization called the Office, he was once a family man, enjoying a peaceful life in a remote corner of Africa. But when his family is murdered, he must return to his old profession and step on a path of vengeance.

A sweeping tale moving from the violent heart of Apartheid South Africa, to the ruins of the United Kingdom, and down to the edge of the world in the frozen Antarctic landscape, The Depths of Deception is a modern homage to the works of Alastair Maclean, Hammond Innes, Nevil Shute and other great adventure writers.

It is a cruel tale of revenge, served as a shatteringly cold dish.

    Hauntingly beautiful

    Set in some future time after an apocalyptic event has wiped America off the map and thrown the rest of the world into chaos, Depths of Deception leads you through the journey of an assassin who leaves his profession in order to lead a "normal" life, only to find his profession is not willing to let him go. Mr. Fraser has a remarkable ability to craft vividly believable scenes and dialog, leading the reader back and forth through various times and settings as the main character experiences the whole gamut of human emotions. Beautifully written, this story will draw you in and not let you go. A compelling and thought-provoking story of one man's quest for answers and closure in a world gone mad. I highly recommend this book. Superb job, Mr. Fraser!

    Thought provoking and imaginative.

    Bought this book on a whim and turned in to a fan in the first ten pages. Well written and imaginitive with a level of detail perfectly suited for the story. Technical matters are addressed without being burdensome. Fast paced, enjoyable and at times a real tear jerker. Not for everyone but if this is your genre you are going to have trouble putting this one down!

    Used fiction to suppport his position that muslim terrorist were responding to aggressive US military.

    This writer used every event in recent history in his attempt to blame the US, Israel, and the UK for the actions of Muslim terrorist. Do not purchase from this super liberal hateful individual.
