Publisher's Summary

When ambitious British journalist Jack Steele travels to the Russian Far East to investigate the mysterious disappearance of two UN officials, he becomes embroiled in a secret military and political international conspiracy to destroy a North Korean nuclear reactor along with several thousand innocent North Korean religious prisoners. In this espionage action thriller 2021, Steele's encounters with blackmail, suicide bombers, double agents, unwelcome romance, and a full-on tank assault will excite fans of British and American spy thrillers, as he incurs the wrath of British, US and North Korean authorities, a Russian organized crime boss, all of whom want him dead.

As if that wasn't enough, Steele alone holds the key to defeating the twisted and ruthless external reality of international politics, diplomacy, and unexpected evil in the Tumen triangle of Russia, North Korea, and China.

From London to Moscow to Vladivostok and into the secret world of Pyong Yang, the suspense and intrigue of North Korea Deception will captivate and electrify mind, body, and spirit throughout this roller-coaster thriller ride.

Think Ludlum and Forsythe. Don't miss this one!

This is a true international thriller - the story weaves from London to Moscow to Vladivostok to Pyongyang and it's a thrilling ride! I always love to hear the narrator narrate. LYNTTON does a great job (you would hope and expect) but what I love most is his (the narrator) ability to give us all the different characters and languages - English, American, Russian and Korean. Definitely don't miss this one!

Great Plot. Good writing, nice accent!

Really enjoyed this story! Its good storytelling winds through international intrigue, and the author / narrator not only speaks an easy-to-listen to British accent, but also perfectly fluent in Russian.
Sample it and see!

International Fast-Paced Thriller

Not only is Lyntton’s debut novel an action-packed thriller filled with plot twists and turns, but his characters are not easily classified as singularly good or evil. Were main character Jack Steele’s motives altruistic or was he seeking the glory of grabbing international headlines with his story. And what about Natasha? She kept me guessing throughout the entire plot.
So many surprises with the "turn of a page", and much attention to detail in the character’s actions and descriptions of the many international settings. Can’t wait to read the next one.

You will not be disappointed!


As I am reading the book I thought I would listen along too and purchased the audiobook. Truly memorable action-packed political thriller
from London to Moscow to Vladivostok. I love how the author takes us to places I have never visited. You will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to Book 2 in this series.

It is rare to find an author who can successfully narrate his own book. I was wary but
Lyntton comes up with the goods - his accents are credible and even speaks fluent Russian in some passages to boot.
Enjoyed the British accent.

The story seems typical enough - a nuclear facility at risk of exploding to kingdom come. But this thriller is so much more.
Lyntton weaves a tangled web full of intrigue and excitement across the globe. American, British, Russian, and North Korean
characters are alive and well and you feel as though you might just bump into them one day! Definitely one to add to your library if you enjoy this genre.
