At the same time in New York, where the liner is headed, sexy Detective Samantha McCall (one of Black’s past girlfriends) is tasked with catching a serial killer, who is on the rampage in the Big Apple. Assisted by her colleagues Marinelli and Toombs, not forgetting Medical Examiner Tina, Detective McCall begins to make headway in her investigation, and is surprised to get a phone call from John Steel who is aboard the liner, asking her for help. She is angry. There are more killings. The puzzle of finding the killer is seemingly insoluble.
Meanwhile, Steel is trying to find out what’s going on aboard the liner. There are some very interesting glimpses into the luxury lifestyle aboard a cruise ship, with an insider’s knowledge of all the ins and outs of daily life on the ocean. Steel makes friends and enemies, also friends who ‘might be enemies’, which adds to his worries. He also meets some glamorous women who certainly take a shine to him, though being a perfect English gentleman, he never treats them with disrespect.
The tension mounts both in New York, where the corpse count is steadily mounting, and on board the ship, where Steel has fights and run-ins galore, and the shady characters he meets are intriguing and threatening in equal measure. Who can he trust? It seems that no one is on his side, and he keeps up his persona of the mysterious ‘Anthony Black’, who gives away no details of his personal life to anyone.
John Steel knows that someone on board wants to blow up the vessel, but he doesn’t know who or why. All he knows for sure is that time is running out.
Simultaneously, on dry land, Samantha McCall hits more danger and dead ends and more people die.
To say more would give away too much. But if you like fast action, tough-guy heroes and sexy feisty heroines, you’ll love this book. By the way, these people aren’t one-dimensional characters, the writer brings them to life and rounds of their personalities, so that you find yourself liking them as people.
You’ll also like this book if you enjoy a good murder mystery. There’s action and intrigue on every page, and the mysteries pulls you in. Once you start reading you won’t want to stop.
The book then jumps back fourteen days earlier. John Steel has previously been working with the NYPD Homicide department. He's now working on a new lead and books himself on a new cruise liner leaving the English coastline on it's way to New York via Spain. He's using an alternative alias, Antony Black. So who is this guy? Imagine a mix of James Bond and Mission Impossible and you'd be pretty close.
Back in New York's homicide department Detective Sam McCall is dealing with multiple murders and dead ends of clues. Where's Steel when you need him? Swanning around on a cruise. Except he's not, he's got a nose for trouble and when The Neptune docks in Spain, trouble finds Steel in a BIG way. But even this pales to insignificance when the cruise heads off to New York and Steel uncovers a huge arms deal about to go down and just who is behind "Operation Unity?"
This is a good action thriller, quite a few characters, but not too many that your head is left reeling. The action scenes are believable and not filled with too much technology. Steel is the ultimate mystery man and one to make the ladies swoon.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
