Will the duo discover the truth about the explosions or will they become Caesar's next victims? Find out in this Dan Brown style political thriller filled with dark secrets, fast paced action and deadly political intrigue.

If you are curious about what goes on behind closed doors in big business, the dark halls of Washington and shadow governments, Killing the Giants could be just what you're looking for.
"Fascinating look into the dark side corruption. This book reminds us why we root for the little guy. Four Stars!" - The Kindle Book Review
"Move over Dan Brown!" - Kendra Dalton (Avid reader)
"This powerfully driven political thriller emancipates the hidden truths of secret societies and projects those terrifying realities into a medium like none other." - Dory Maust, Author of Blood Stained
"Admittedly, I was astounded at the amount of insight depicted within the pages of this novel regarding the ins-and-outs of the various secret societies and how they integrate with the overall world-wide political and economic trends to favor a select few. Both of my grandfathers and father attended Yale University and I remember well the stories [albeit "facts] related by them - especially my father who was subjected to harsh acts of hazing not knowing what the end held in store for him. Indeed, it wasn't pretty as he opted not to play by their rules and was viciously attacked such that he ended up shunned from their society and was eventually pushed out of "normal" life leaving my mother and I to fend for ourselves. The harshness portrayed in this book is no exaggeration and in fact, is almost too kind to these vultures. Typically, I read a book first skimming it to see if it's worth reading a second time to devour the details. As I stated to the author, it was a no brainer for me as it related to "reality" in my world and the second reading totally absorbed me. Not only because of the facts stated above, but the story itself was well constructed and engaging.
I would recommend this to anyone interested in learning how the other side works [i.e. upper echelons] and not look at this as total fantasy. Unfortunately, it's not!" - William Peck
"Well written and timely for the shaky period the USA is in. Easily passed my 20 page rule - if a book cannot hold me for 20 pages, I usually do not finish...Read about the last 100 pages in a sitting - couldn't put it down. Storyline is gripping and detailed with a great background on the characters. I usually read King and Grisham, and this did not disappoint. Killing the Giants will be a well read book, looking forward to the next installment." - Jeff Kirchner
"Killing the Giants draws you into a suspense filled drama, which pulls you to the edge of your seat and then starts twisting & turning, leaving you wanting more, and horrified about the real potential of power brokers, and the world we don't see! A great Read!" - Steve Smith, Lawyer

It's a good effort but so overripe with adjectives it is not very pleasurable to read. Character development is severely lacking.
When ATF agent Sarah Perkins is assigned to investigate a series of seemingly unrelated - yet deadly - events at two separate oil facilities, she soon finds herself thrust square in the middle of a global conspiracy underwritten by Caesar, a sinister secret society determined to rule the world. Armed only with her wits and what she hopes ultimately proves to be good luck, Sarah faces the ominous task not only of making the world aware of Caesar's existence, but also of saving all of humanity from its malicious grasp. Little does she know, though, the success of her quest may ultimately cost her nothing less than her very life... Rife with more than its fair share of mystery, suspense, and drama, Killing The Giants is a conspiracy theorist's dream. From the very beginning, author Jeff Bennington draws you into a world of intrigue, corruption, and powerful shadow forces, all coalescing to orchestrate a devastating global takeover. Given the irrefutable evidence of the incorrigible influence of money and power throughout history, one can't help admitting that the premise of an elitist global agenda designed to dominate all of humanity, is - no matter how unlikely - at the very least believable. It is precisely this type of agenda that Bennington brings to full life in the pages of Killing The Giants, impressively framed by twisting plotlines and a vivid, realistic assortment of characters. In compelling fashion, Bennington leaves you wondering just whether or not a global conspiracy truly is surreptitiously afoot - long after the final page has been turned. With gripping action that unfolds at a break-neck pace, Killing The Giants is an eye-opening read guaranteed to change the way you look at the government for years to come.

When Presidents and Senators speak in fear and dread of the dark side of politics, you know something is terribly wrong. However, when fiction runs parallel with the truth, you are faced with the intrigue of realism, and an earth shattering reading experience. Killing the Giants: The Road to Nihilism, written by Indiana resident, Jeff Bennington, is such a book. A graduate of Indiana University, Jeff blends a fresh writing style with his diverse life experiences to make this a truly riveting political thriller that will bring you into a world you wish never existed. Published Author - Dory Maust, author of Blood Stained and the Benn Mac series writes, "This powerfully driven political thriller emancipates the hidden truths of secret societies and projects those terrifying realities into a medium like none other." Killing the giants is well represented by the words penned by President Woodrow Wilson when he wrote, "Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture[ing], are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." Jeff Bennington's debut novel is a telling story about the hidden forces that continue to silently rule the United States today. A true page-turner, Killing the Giants is wrought with lovable and humorous personalities who experience the consequences of an elitist global agenda.
