Firstly I wish to thank Jack Steele for inviting me on this Blog Tour for his new book Long Shot
Detective Joe Stone and his team investigate a major terrorist attack on one of London’s most iconic buildings. They soon draw up a list of suspects who are highly respected members of the community and government. When most of his team is attacked, it soon develops into a war of nerves and a race against time before a deadly weapon is unleashed with horrific consequences.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
This is the second book in the series but the first book that I have read which revolves round a specialised team headed by Detective Joe Stone and what an incredible riveting read it was!
It seems that the previous book ended on a bit of a dare I say story with unfinished business which Joe Stone is more than determined to solve. Unfortunately the bad guys had other plans for London with an unthinkable terrorist attack on a beloved symbol of British history. For one of the team it becomes all too real on a family outing. A welcome bonus for the team though.
What an absolutely belter of a book. I don’t think that slow burn and gradual build up are in Jack Steele’s vocabulary because he starts in 5th gear and doing 120mph. He definitely made my heart tickle my tonsils!
There is far more to this story than your average terrorist attack as it goes much further than just extremists. It takes it all to a new terrifying level of scary. Joe Stone makes one hell of a determined Detective. A superb story from a wicked author.
I wish to thank the author for this book which I read and reviewed honestly and without biased.
HERE IS A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I was born in Hackney, London and grew up on the Bannister House Housing Estate in Hommerton. I now live in Nottinghamshire and married with two grown up children who now have lives of their own, leaving me time to indulge in my favourite passions, reading and writing. I still work full-time in the printing industry which is where I have been for the past 40 years. On many occasions it interferes with my writing, working extra hours or weekends, so it can be a balancing act but one I seem to manage along with an understanding wife of course.
I spent five years researching books, magazines, documentaries, movies and internet articles on various subjects as well as completing a creative writing course and attending workshops run by the Nottingham Writers Studio.
It was a great achievement in 2016 when I published my first Crime Thriller novel ‘Loose Cannon’ with great reviews. It was the first in the Detective Joe Stone series and I was encouraged to write the sequel ‘Long Shot’ which is due for publication on July 29th 2017.
My writing style is a fast-paced page turner with cliff hangers, moral dilemmas and believable characters.
I would like to thank all my readers, editors, bloggers and Crime book club friends who, like you Susan, have been so supportive through this process. Your encouragement drives me on to write the next book in the series.
