📚 SYNOPSIS 📚
In the UK, Detective John Steel is investigating the organization who killed his family. When he comes across information that something big is going to happen on the cruise ship Neptune, Steel goes undercover. He has fourteen days to figure out what is going to happen – and to stop it.
In New York, Steel’s NYPD partner, Detective Samantha McCall, is investigating a series of deaths. All seems run of the mill for the homicide detective until they find out that the deaths are somehow connected to the cruise ship John Steel is on.
McCall is convinced there is a mole in the department, but can she figure out who he is – and who he’s working for? Meanwhile, Steel is running out of options… and the clock is ticking.
💭MY THOUGHTS 💭
How can I describe John Steel. He is the epitome of a man of mystery and a thrill seeking secret agent. Think James Bond, Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, Bruce Willis in Die Hard. These men have all got the same thing in common, they run around fighting evil and saving the world. Never getting hurt and always bedding the ladies. When I read up about the author Stuart Field, John Steel made perfect sense. Field has a passion for all these action films and grew up on James Bond. And, he’s put all his loves of these film heroes and balled them up into one character. Steel, John Steel (this is how he introduces himself at one stage)
This is what I enjoyed about John Steel as a character though. We have all watched these spy films at some point in our lives, and no matter whether you love or loathe them, you will never forget them.
Hidden Steel is the second in the series. It is easily read as a standalone novel. We do have a few hints and teasers as to what may have happened in the first book. Which is why I would like to read that to get the bigger picture.
A cracking page turner, with breathtaking and impelling drama at every corner.
Thank you to Emma for my spot on the blog tour. And, thanks to the publishers for my gifted copy.
