Product Description

"The Benevolent Deception features far-flung locations that are brimming with authenticity, centered around a complex and twisting plot that never fails to thrill." - Rob Sinclair, author of The Enemy Series

"Aiden L. Bailey’s debut spy thriller is mind-bending, genre-breaking, cliche-twisting . . . call it whatever you like, just read it! The prose moves along at just the right pace, seasoning the building conspiracy with moments of thrilling action, and the breathtaking beauty of some incredible settings. Africa, Columbia, Afghanistan . . . The story takes you on a journey, deeper and deeper into a the shadows of mystery, until you finally look up and ask “What the heck is going on here?!?” - Andrew Warren, author of Tokyo Black and Red Phoenix

"Aiden L Bailey has written the start of a unique, fresh thriller novel series that is going to be on its way to achieve complete, global domination of the online thriller novel market." - Samuel Carver, The Orion Team

AN INTERNATIONAL TECHNO-THRILLER MYSTERY CENTERED ON THE GLOBAL THREAT OF CYBER-TERRORISM

Air Force One is shot down by insurgents in the frozen deserts of Afghanistan. The U.S. President is discovered dead, the victim of a successful assassination.

Or is he?

This is a question that only Peri Keser, the sole surviving, on-site Secret Service Agent, can answer, as she surveys the crash site minutes before watching a live broadcast from Air Force One, supposedly en route to Europe. Yet convincing her superiors that the Head of State is an impostor soon becomes an impossibility for Keser, as trusted global media sources continue to report the President not only alive and well, but active in office.

Half a world away in the polluted oil fields of West Africa, security contractor and former intelligence officer, Simon Ashcroft, is sent to protect Casey Irvine, a tourist with a secret that will change everything.

When terrorists, criminal organizations, police and military forces will stop at nothing to eliminate Casey, she and Simon go on the run. Yet their enemies seem able to predict their every move, and every minute becomes a battle for survival.

The game is changing, but the world has yet to notice.


The Benevolent Deception is a fast paced, globe-trotting techno-thriller which boasts breath-taking settings, cinematic action scenes and an impressive cast of diverse and multi-layered characters. Reviews say “If you like Jason Bourne books you will love this one too!"

If you are a fan of Robert Ludlum, Michael Crichton, Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, Andy McDermott and Terry Hayes, then you will be gripped by this exciting new adventure thriller series.

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this new novel by upcoming author Aiden L Bailey. The momentum in this book makes it unputdownable. The characters are interesting and have a depth to them that is not often seen mixed with such adventure. This is not a genre that I normally read, but the political points raised in this were thought provoking, and the fast pace, combined with many twists and turns in the plot make this a really interesting read. For me it was a great combination of escapism, but with a depth and underlying wisdom that really takes this from being an ‘ordinary’ action thriller, to something with much more substance. But still an easy read that flows well from one scene to the next.
I can’t wait to read the next in this Series

Simply Brilliant. I love finding a new Author that can truly capture my attention, and entertain me like Aiden Bailey has done with this amazing book. The story really does move along at a good pace, with plenty of things happening throughout. I especially like the way the Author has structured this book with different characters and events, happening in different parts of the world. Journalist Connor Raferty thought he was going to write the scoop of a life time when he arrived in the Amazon to interview the leader of the FARC. He certainly didn’t expect them to kill his driver, and then for the American Rangers to turn up not long after. He hadn’t heard that America had declared war on the drug cartels, and were going to systematically destroy drug labs around the world. Peri Keser couldn’t believe her ears when she heard Air Force One had been shot down. She had to drag herself out of the hospital bed, barely able to stand from malaria, to get a ride out to the crash site to verify that the President was in fact dead. Nothing is making sense though with reports of the President currently being alive and well in Berlin. Peri needs to stay under the radar while she is investigating, and not end up dead like those around her. If you enjoy Action Thrillers, then you will love this book. It really is that good.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

What instantly drew me to this novel was its interestingly fresh premise, showcased in the synopsis. And indeed “The Benevolent Deception” did not let me down in that regard (or in any other for this matter)!

Aiden Bailey has written a fast paced, globe-trotting thriller-debut, which boasts breath-taking settings, cinematic action scenes and an impressive cast of diverse and multi-layered characters, whom are much more than the stereotypes you usually encounter in this genre. But the book’s biggest selling point is its unpredictability! You can never really predict what happens next and are as much in the dark as the characters, about what is transpiring, until the very end. And just when you think you have figured out what is really going on, the author manages to pull the rug from under your feet with a killer twist, that will have you reeling and impatiently waiting for the next book in the series!

Bailey successfully turns many tropes and conventions of the genre on their head, delivering a dark, thought-provoking and utterly unique thrill-ride. Totally recommended!

So glad to see this is part of a series. There is nothing predictable about this book and the plot twists had me guessing right up until the end. I searched for more from the author but it looks like this is a debut, and a pretty impressive one at that. Great work to be able to maintain such a fast pace throughout the entire read.
