Product description

Product Description

While representing a wealthy tycoon and his ambitious and devious grandson, hard-boiled lawyer Jake Stone is saved from a vicious beating in a shady alley by a lovely young woman with a knack for the martial arts. Snowflake, she calls herself and quickly latches onto Jake for a wild ride through the underbelly of corporate America and beyond. But is she who she says she is, just a humble paralegal hunting for a job, or is she a corporate spy, a gun runner, an assassin, or simply a girl looking for a decent guy, or perhaps all of the above?

The big question is whether Jake will live long enough to find out.

“At 190 heart stopping pages Deception is a rollicking, action-packed thriller with plenty of bullets, bodies, karate chops, belly laughs and shady characters to enchant even the most demanding reader. I especially enjoyed Snowflake. Now there’s a girl who really knows how to kick butt in style! I look forward to reading the next volume in this wild and engrossing series.” Theodora K.

“There’s no question that Peters is a master wordsmith.” Gerry B’s Book Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Coaster 11 June 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

It was my first summary of Jake Natural stone about this rollercoaster journey. This episode has far more twists when compared to a pack of pretzels. There are numerous issues happening in this particular book that it must be somewhat difficult to track them all. I discovered it fascinating and checked forward to continuous with all the exploits of Jake. I found how the Amazonian character types were rejuvenating, and so they train like Navy Seals [ reminded me of the Demi Moore persona in G.I. Anne]. If you would like real life instances of strong girls, you simply have to glance at the Olympics [ boxing, rowing, wrestling, swimming, track and Judo and a lot more]. This publication is a great place to begin understanding the character types that will interest you as you may continue with the sequence. Jake Natural stone begins as an attorney (like the writer), and seems to become a little more of any investigator. Snowflake, the primary female persona, is certainly one difficult Amazon online marketplace that could remind you of Speculate Lady. I am hoping you enjoy this primary of many exploits of Jake Natural stone and Snowflake. I'm away and off to read through my next episode. Thank you T. L. Peters; Keep up the great work.
1.0 out of 5 stars Not even worth the 99 cent price. 20 June 2015
By Shelley - Published on Amazon.com

This book was so absurd it was hilarious. I didn't notice the typos others mentioned (perhaps they've been cleaned up,) but the language is impossible. It's like the author had a thesaurus and was determined to use every word in it. This guy obviously never read Elmore Leonard's rules of writing (eg. don't use a bunch of words that readers are going to skip over anyway.) He never settles for just one adjective when he can provide several. Example:
"Then his pulse quickened even more when the gaunt pallid man in the rumpled rain suit who was standing in a pronounced slouch at the door flashed a silver badge and announced that he was Detective Crisp of the County homicide squad."
The plot is also very far fetched -- lots of heaving breasts and shapely calves and casual murders -- and the hero is perpetually nonplussed and getting beat up by shapely women.

This was my first introduction to Jake Stone on this rollercoaster adventure. This episode has more twists than a box of pretzels. There are so many things happening in this book that it is somewhat difficult to track them all. I found it exciting and looked forward to continuing with the exploits of Jake. I found that the Amazonian characters were refreshing, and they train like Navy Seals [ reminded me of the Demi Moore character in G.I. Jane]. If you want real life examples of strong females, you only have to look at the Olympics [ boxing, wrestling, Judo, rowing, track, swimming, and more]. This book is a great place to start learning about the characters that will intrigue you as you continue with the series. Jake Stone starts out as an attorney (like the author), and seems to become more of a detective. Snowflake, the main female character, is one tough Amazon that might remind you of Wonder Woman. I hope you enjoy this first of many exploits of Jake Stone and Snowflake. I'm off to read my next episode. Thank you T. L. Peters; Keep up the good work.
1.0 out of 5 stars This book should not be in Christian fiction 10 January 2013
By Texanna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a terrible story. It is full of violence and sex. The characters are all insane, think nothing of lying and murder, and are motivated by sexual lust and greed. God is seldom mentioned (only in refernce to potential fornication) and Jesus not at all. The author has a thinly disguised lust for athletic women which is smarmy. I was disgusted and deleted the book, but I still feel dirty.
5.0 out of 5 stars stupid, but great 6 February 2013
By John W. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The main character is the most stupid I have ever run across, but this book is great. I don't know what these other are reviewing, but it is not the same book I read. The action is ongoing, never stops. I enjoyed the book enormously. It was a short story only took about 2 hours, but I stayed with it. Some books go on for nearly a whole chapter describing the characters, this one got to it right away. Until I got to the end, and saw a picture of the author, I would have sworn the book was written by a woman. All the men is this book are big,and stupid. But a thriller is a thriller. I liked it, regardless what some of the other reviewer said, and I intend to get the next one in the series. This guy has to smarten up sooner or later, but then who knows.
