"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
"It was about time someone created a skillful and intelligent page turner using Turkey and its politics as the base." -Yesim Erez, Cumhuriyet
"An EXPLOSIVE novel." -B.Johnson, High Tide Journal and Washington Times communities.
Luke Montgomery is a writer of true-to-life fiction who has crafted a brilliant piece of work. His debut suspense novel A Deceit To Die For is a fast-paced page turner that took me on a roller coaster ride from which I still haven't quite recovered. I predict we will be hearing more of Mr. Montgomery in the days to come. --Elizabeth Wise, author
Raised on the ancient hunting grounds of the Mescalero Apaches, Luke Montgomery cut his teeth on tales of Geronimo’s exploits, supped with Viking heroes in Valhalla and embarked on exhilarating voyages with Odysseus. Somewhere along the way, he grew older, but he didn't grow up. After obtaining his MA in Linguistics, he set a course for adventure in Europe and the Middle East, where he lived for over a decade combing Hittite, Phrygian, Lycian, Greek and Roman ruins on the shores of the Mediterranean and Aegean. An inquisitive anthropologist and history buff, Mr. Montgomery immersed himself in the local culture, mastering both the language and customs of the people. He has sipped tea with the sons of Ottoman sultans, explored the Taurus Mountains with Turcoman tribes, listened to haunting Kurdish folk songs and watched the sun rise in Aman with the Arabic call to prayer floating over the desert sand. When he is not consulting private and public institutions with interests and operations in the Middle East, he tends grapes, raises Longhorn cattle and researches political developments. As an expert on Islam, he spends much of his time researching and writing about religious politics.
