“The Jonas Trust Deception” is a new Thomas Gunn thriller by bestselling author AFN Clarke. Thomas (ex-Special Forces) goes on high alert after a desperate message from his journalist friend, Morgan. Her life’s in danger. But where? And why? Rushing to her ranch he finds it being torn apart by a highly-trained female assassin of East European descent, with a mysterious butterfly tattoo on her neck. An image that stirs his already troubled soul.
Thomas fears Morgan has stumbled on something explosive in her ongoing investigations of the “Orange Moon” conspiracy. Following tangled leads, he and his girlfriend Julie are thrust into the deadly path of Mexican drug cartels, corrupt politicians, unscrupulous financial brokers like Jonas T Purdue, the FBI, the UK intelligence services, secret societies and even their arch nemesis Marika Keskküla. What deception binds these unlikely “players” together? And even more personally disturbing, why the links to a secret mission in Afghanistan that Thomas has tried so hard to forget?
Outraged by the feeling of constantly being “played”, Thomas decides to turn the tables on the faceless “puppeteers” by taking an action so bold, so dangerous, and so unexpected, that even his team fear he’s lost his mind. Has he? Or can he expose the “vermin” at the top and finally eliminate them forever?
