DEEP SLEEPERS (A Tom Blake Thriller/Book1)

Colonel Harry Patterson had proposed the creation of a Deep Sleepers programme, using Tom Blake’s “skills honed as a warfare psychologist, to infiltrate suspected terror organisations with undercover agents. With their subconscious controlled by Blake, they could be embedded in key positions and become virtually undetectable.”
Great first book

When I finish a book, I have one of three reactions – put it down and head to the next one on the list, clutch it to my chest and sigh, or lay awake wondering more about the characters because I’m so hyped up. Deep Sleepers elicited the 3rd response. I finished it at 3:40am, turned out the light, and then my brain took over. Yes, I went over the plot of the story, but more importantly I went over the characters. Adrian Wills made me wonder about their lives and care about them. Without getting into spoilers, I want to know more about a good 80% of the characters – some their past, some their future, and some – like Tom Blake – I want to know it all, from the time he was a wee babe. I want to know about the BFA and if they continue. I want to know if Trent became a famous journalist, and I want to know how Lucy deals with what she knows. I want desperately to know if Nick is OK with everything he’s been through. Mostly, I want to know everything there is to know about Blake, and I hope Mr. Wills delves the information out in increments over the next ten books or so.

This is certainly a different black ops storyline that takes place in the UK. Blake is a warfare psychologist with a non military counterterrorism element of MI5 charged with infiltrating suspected terrorist organizations with undercover agents. With their subconscious controlled by Blake, they could be embedded in key positions and be virtually undetectable. There are many twists and turns along the way in this one.
During the last years, Britain are growing a great group of Indies Authors that’s worthy to read.
A great start to a fantastic, thrilling series
‘Deep Sleepers’ was an awesome start to what sounds like a great series, ‘A Tom Blake Thriller’. The premise was scary real. Just the thought of becoming someone else by a simple tap scares me, yet it does sound realistic and productive. The storyline was brilliantly written and had me glued to the pages. I couldn’t wait to find out how everything intertwined. Well written and well thought out. Blake is quite the determined and passionate agent. He seemed to genuinely care for his agents. Lucy was one determined sister that wouldn’t let things go, understandably so. She never gave up and was prepared for whatever was thrown her way, or so she thought. I look forward to reading more of this series. A great add to your tbr list. Recommended read.

Not kindle unlimited probably from one of my freebie sites, lot of names and that’s an issue for me but not in the writing so didn’t count when rating.

I loved the idea of Psyops done this way. Very well written and thought out. Already bought book two. This is not overly written; not too sci-fi nor too much of a stretch. It’s also written with “people” in mind. Meaning that there’s plenty of “humanity” written into Blake’s character.
Excellent espionage thiller!
This well written espionage novel gives new meaning to the term deep sleeper undercover agent. This novel blends two story lines seamlessly combining a search for a lost brother, skin heads, hypnosis, espionage and terrorism. After reading American espionage thillers I loved the Brittish flair and a story line taking place in England. Adrian Wills weaves a well written action packed novel with a realistic hero.
Excellent. Looking forward to book 2. Read in one setting. Will read more by Adrain Wills.
I would like to recommend this book to anyone who wants to …
