A mysterious letter hidden in an old manuscript… Merciless assassins determined to recover it… An ordinary family fighting to survive…
When history professor Ian O’Brien purchases an old collection of letters and books, he unknowingly steps into the world of a shadowy organization. His family is soon caught up in a web of intrigue and deceit spun out of a 16th century Muslim conspiracy that somebody still wants to keep secret. This powerful and ruthless group will stop at nothing to recover the document. Events spin out of control, tragedy strikes and the quest for answers begins. Facing impossible odds, they race against time to discover the truth and save their loved ones. In the process, they learn just how powerful and enduring a lie can be. Meticulously researched and drawing on historical facts, Luke Montgomery’s fast-paced, thought-provoking thriller exposes the dark history behind the cultural and religious challenges we face today. This explosive and courageous debut novel forces us to grapple with issues of identity and faith. In the words of one reviewer, “Never again will you utter the words ‘gospel truth’ without thinking of this book.”
I am already looking forward to this author's next novel
As a Middle East politics enthusiast of Turkish origin, I have witnessed the suffering of the Turkish people during the last 10 years from the Orwellian policies of an Islamic regime during which journalists are jailed for criticizing the government, the right to free speech is stifled by intimidating the public and where a government is the Big Brother who listens to private conversations and limits web access.
The common Turk is also aware of Imam Gulen who resides in PA and operates schools via his organization and network throughout the world including in the US.
With all its intricacy and deceit, Turkish politics already reads like a page turner. It was about time someone created a skillful and intelligent page turner using Turkey and its politics as the base. Luke Mongomery has done exactly that.
"A Deceit to Die For" takes place in the UK, the USA, Egypt and Turkey. A collection of letters and books acquired by Professor O'Brien contain a document someone wants to keep a secret at whatever expense. His family in the US find themselves against an international organization who is trying to bury the secret forever. The story breathlessly unfolds an international mystique. The framework is meticulously researched and the reader is treated to slices of life from modern Istanbul, the dynamics between government institutions and between social classes. It has realistic snapshots of suicide bombers, Hizbullah terrorists, government sympathizers with veiled wives.

Gripping, Riveting and Shocking
Truly an explosive novel. It's action-packed and a page-turner with all of the suspense and drama of your favorite thriller, but also crammed with fascinating historical intrigues and insights into culture that make it exquisite. A brilliant expose of institutionalized religion, it is sympathetic as well as outrageous. If you're looking for a fast-paced mystery novel, A Deceit to Die For is one you won't want to put down, but in addition to being titillated and challenged, you'll also come away with a deeper understanding of the fabric of the human spirit and the nature of the threats we all face in our attempts to uncover the truth. -B.Johnson,Washtimes communities columnist
"Luke Montgomery's fast-paced novel is a political and religious tour de force. This book puts a face on the clash of civilizations unfolding in our day. Too true to call fiction, too gripping to put down. Well-researched, brilliantly executed!" —Joel Richardson, New York Times Bestselling author
