"A New King of Thrillers on the Horizon." Sisters in Crime

"If you like spy thrillers with shady characters, twisting plots that involve international conspiracies, and fascinating foreign locales, then you must read Jack King". The Beach Metro News

"King's debut novel is powerful, riveting and an incredible ride through the back passageways of international politics. Strong characters, believable (if incredible) plot lines and nonstop action almost make each page turn without the reader's help. King has entered the spy genre arena with some hefty ammunition of his own." and the Old Book Barn Gazette

"King, a former courier of top-secret information, delivers a tightly wound debut thriller ... [with] intelligent dialogue, relentless pacing and well-rounded characters (including a hauntingly familiar American president)." Publisher's Weekly


As a former top-secret government courier, Jack King was privy to all the ins and outs of covert maneuvering on a global scale. He has turned his work experience into a series of novels that resonate with authenticity. The corridors of power, with their backstabbing, greed, and corruption, are the focus points of Jack's books.

    a new world order in the making

    Drawn to the novel's masonic undertones I was surprised to find a realistic, rather than cabalistic, take on the new world order. Eerily authentic, and evidently based on true attempts to overthrow the American president, I hesitate to call it a dystopian image of America, because it is too close to what we all observe today in the media. Without a doubt the book portrays the Bilderberg group, and its efforts to establish control of the planet by sujugating the most powerful country.
