Available on Amazon…The Deeper Dark is a psychological thriller that takes readers on a journey and it doesn’t let up.
A fighter pilot endures years in a POW camp in Afghanistan after his jet experiences equipment failure while on a routine mission. By some strange miracle one day after years of incarceration, Captain Haven Kayd finds a way to escape.
Meanwhile, his wife was informed of his death and has moved on with her life. So has his daughter who has been growing up on her own without a father since his disappearance. To their surprise, they are visited one day by two Marines who are there to inform them that Haven is in fact still alive.
Haven’s return shocks the nation and his life is celebrated while he’s simply trying to play catch up in a world that went on without him. It’s not long before he stumbles onto the truth, a scandalous truth that finds him mixed up in the middle of unbelievable corruption. Not only was his plane meant to go down, but he was meant to die. And that just scratches the surface of how evil this scandal gets.
The movie a producer was planning to make about his story suddenly gets canceled without any explanation. As Haven continues to investigate, he is contacted anonymously by someone who claims to be very powerful. The help he offers is limited, but the guidance he gives Haven makes it easier for him to dive deep into the dark web where he uncovers more than just a cover story about a man and his faulty plane.
Turning to the internet and using his newfound notoriety, he begins to expose what’s going on behind the curtain. Soon, friendly hackers are coming to his assistance while bad hackers are hired to take him out. But Haven won’t back down and the fight is taken to the real world where he finds himself pitted against an enemy he once thought was on his side, an invisible enemy that reaches quite high and has resources far beyond Haven’s imagination.
When his daughter comes up missing, he recruits the assistance of friendly hackers who help him chase a human trafficking crew across the country. Always just one step behind, he continues in hot pursuit until he finally catches up to them. Up against highly trained operatives, it appears he’s outmatched. But they have no idea how far he is willing to go to save the only person he has left in his life.
