This is a bit of a double today as Jack Steele is celebrating LONG SHOT being released as a paperback today and he is also offering LOOSE CANNON as a free download for a limited period!
THIS IS THE SECOND BOOK IN THE SERIES, NOW AVAILABLE AS A PAPERBACK
I read and reviewed LONG SHOT earlier this year, so here is my 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
Jack was born in Hackney, London and grew up on the Bannister House Estate. He enjoyed English at school with his English teacher, Bernard Phillips, always encouraging him to enjoy reading. At 16, he left school and started a 4 year printing apprenticeship. ‘To say there were a few dodgy characters that I worked/mixed with would be an understatement. They included petty criminals, football hooligans and gangsters.’ Obviously great characters for his novel! As Jack grew older, his love for the Crime Fiction genre became more apparent. As the years rolled by he became more discerning. ‘The Crime Fiction books I was reading were either too descriptive with little action, or too many characters that confused me.’ He decided to write a crime novel that appealed to his own personal taste. He spent five years researching books, magazines, documentaries, movies and internet articles on various subjects. He concentrated on reading fiction/non-fiction on the subjects of Organised Crime, the Mafia, Vice, Psychopaths and Policing.’ Jack completed a creative writing course and attended workshops run by the Nottingham Writers Studio. In 2016 Jack published his first Crime Fiction novel ‘Loose Cannon’ with great reviews. ‘A lot of my characters are based on old colleagues and acquaintances. My readers have enjoyed their own particular character in the book. Many have picked out the doorman, Norman, as one that could have his own series!’ The final words go to Jack. ‘I would like to thank all my readers, editors, bloggers and Crime book club friends who have been so supportive through this process. Their encouragement drives me on to write the next book in the series.’ Jack Steele is the pen name of Mark Homan.
