Publisher Description

It’s all the news channels can talk about: the White House has been bombed, there's chaos in the streets, and the United States has found itself in the throes of a violent revolution.

Surrounded by panicked people, washed-up journalist Len Savitz takes the crisis in stride. It’s nothing that a stiff drink won’t cure. After all, bad news only hurts optimists.

But when the mysterious leader of the rebels cherry-picks him to acquire certain information for her, Len is forced to go on an investigative mission where he uncovers millennia-old secrets and unwittingly triggers a chain of disturbing events that will determine the future of humankind.

Author Kevin Gaughen’s dynamic debut novel, Interest, creates a seamless alternate reality behind real-world political tensions while keeping pace with its page-turning plot. Interest is as riveting as it is thought-provoking.

Who really runs the world we live in? The further Len digs, the darker the answers appear to be…

Interest (Final State #1)

I don't usually like this type book but I liked this one. I gave it only 3 stars because it had too many secrets, by that I mean, the reader couldn't deduce the conclusion because no matter what, it would be wrong. As each secret was revealed, the conclusion changed. I don't know why that bothered me but it did. All in all, a good read. It certainly has a story line I have not seen before.

Great read

I just couldn't put it down. Finished it in one night.

WOW! Scary how closely this book parallels our human condition today! Except for the aliens identified (which are imaginary I hope) , all the civil unrest, the disregard for human lives, and the rising cost of every commodity we desire, it could be fact, not fiction.
