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.
I was really looking forward to reading this book and it certainly did not disappoint!
It is a well written story with some great characters – I really enjoyed the interaction between McCall and Steel and I think they worked really well with the story too.
The plot was well developed and there was plenty of action! The setting for the book was great, the author had great attention to detail for me and I thought that the descriptions used were great too.
This is book 2 in the John Steel series but I think it would also work really well as a stand-alone story. I really enjoyed book 1 so if you do get an opportunity to read that too I would definitely recommend that you check it out!
It is 4 stars from me for this one, it was a well written crime thriller and it had me hooked – I loved the characters and it is definitely one I will be highly recommending!!
