Today is the blog tour for Hidden Steel (John Steel #2) by Stuart Field. Thank you to Damppebbles Blog Tours for allowing me to participate today. Check out my review and let me know what you think!
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.
Quick paced, action packed thrill ride, Hidden Steel is book two in the series, but I read this as a standalone and had no issues. The only “issue” is adding yet another book to my TBR, because now I want to read book one!
The book does tend to change points of view quickly and it was a bit confusing until I got into it. Of course, once I was into the book, ines hooked! It was such an absorbing story that I felt like I couldn’t put it down.
Lots of action and characters that are believable, Stuart Field has created one heck of a novel. And of course, it couldn’t end nice and tidy, I was left with lots of questions that will be answered in the next book I’m sure. I’m really looking forward to more from this series.
I definitely recommend checking out Hidden Steel. It’s a compelling read that I really enjoyed.
Stuart Field was born in the UK, in the West Midlands. He spent his early years in the army, seeing service in all the known (and some unknown) hotspots around the world. He now lives in Germany with his wife Ani. When not engaged in highly confidential security work, he writes thrillers which perhaps mimic his life-experience more than the reader would like to believe.
