Two men from humble beginnings living a continent apart may be destined to become the two most powerful men in the world. As the plan of one and the dream of the other intersect, neither has any idea of the powerful chain of events about to occur. It is this exciting world of crime and intrigue that retired Arkansas State Trooper Delbert Moad pens in his new book “The Ultimate Deception: A Life of Lies” (published by iUniverse).

Paul Stevens is a bright young man facing an uncertain future. His father, Raul Contreras, is a man of vision and infinite patience, but most importantly a man of action. Raul and his business associate, Rafael Saltas, hold the reins to an empire that rivals those of ancient European warlords. Paul is caught between his father’s dream and the harsh reality of his drug empire and, as he attempts to meet his father’s expectations, soon finds himself becoming more and more like him every day.

Meanwhile, Caroline Williams, Rafael’s strong-willed daughter, struggles to come to terms with her father’s outdated restrictions. Helplessly caught in their fathers’ webs of deceit, Paul and Caroline align themselves with a charismatic future presidential candidate without any idea that a determined DEA agent is hot on their trail.

In this political thriller, time is of the essence as Paul and Caroline sacrifice nearly everything in a valiant attempt to achieve their fathers’ dreams.

“I worked in law enforcement for 34 years,” Moad explains. “During that time I saw and investigated many types of crime. I believe that the story in my book could happen, may have already happened, or could happen in the future.”
