The Veritas Deception
on Tour August 2016
Synopsis:There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.
Days after U.S. Senator Malcolm Phillips changes his vote on a bill he sponsored, he is murdered and his death disguised as an accident. He contacted one man before he died: investigative journalist, Jack Logan. He left Jack a single clue to help him uncover the truth and keep Phillip’s widow, Taylor, safe. But safe from whom?
Jack and Taylor’s desperate hunt leads them to a vast network of corrupt authority controlling everything from social media and television programming to law enforcement and US legislation. The key to unraveling a complex web of lies is a set of ancient relics, dating back to the time of Christ. But what do these relics have to do with a senator’s death?
Allies turn to foes when Jack and Taylor discover that those closest to them are part of the conspiracy, and that they too have been manipulated. How long has a puppet master been pulling their strings—and will Jack and Taylor trust the right people long enough to win what becomes a colossal battle for souls?

The Veritas Deception is one of those books that take you by surprise. The things happening troughout the book, you cannot even imagine to happen. But it does give you something to think about.
The story evolves around Jack and Taylor and Damon Crosse. The latter is a villain you do not come across very often. He has patience to work out his evil plan. No rush, just have the intend to corrupt and distroy any morality in the world and he takes his time for this. Many years to be precise while knowing that once the plan works it will be long after he's gone. He has taken years to raise foster kids to do his bidding and has them in high ranking positions. And what he needs are 30 silver coins that will give him the power to summon the devil himself.
Well the 30 coins are the Judas coins and that part together with the devil part were a downer for me, but the part where he is the heartless villain trying to rid the world of any moral was well written en thought out. He has people everywhere in high ranking places. He controls the tv shows that air and has many people in the goverment and legal system. You never know who belongs to him, no-one can be trusted.
And this is also what Jack and Taylor find out. Even their lives have been fabricated by this man. And to stop Damon they need to figure out who can be trusted.
I do not want to go into detail since I do think it is worth reading although you need to take the devil part not to seriously to my opinion and really think about what Damon is doing and the consequenses it could have. Are people really so easy to manipulate? The way he wants to actually execute his "evil" plan is quite meticulous. But to be honost I do not like these open endings. Are we getting a follow up story or not?
