What a great action-adventure story, with intense characters and very interesting situations and plots!! Jack Steel is a Blackhood Operative, making a career out of protecting and saving innocents and stopping terrorists for good! But this new Op he is on starts to make no sense, as they are ordered to kill civilians- something that turns Jack's stomach and has him questioning every order given...
Unable to follow these orders, Jack screws up the whole 'mission', and vows to find those

Fascinating Web of Intrigue

This is the first novel by Geoffrey Saign that I have read. Jack Steel is retired from the military but now works as a Blackhood operative to carry out specific missions that the US government does not wish to be associated with. On his previous mission Jack questions his orders when he is told to ignore the longstanding explicit directive that no civilians are to be killed. Jack foils the mission by injuring the leg of the military chap in charge of the mission. He

This book starts out with a bang, pun intended.

Jack Steel is on a mission with orders to kill all. When it is obvious that not all of the people in the compound are terrorists, he defies his orders and allows several to escape. Then the hunt to take down Steel begins.

The story is fast-paced with twists and turns that keeps the reader (moi) on our toes.

One interesting thing Saign does is provide the reader with the flora, fauna, birds and insects at most of the story's locations. It make you feel

This was a great read and a wonderful start to a new series. No spoilers in this review, but you need to know that this a must-read, that gives stiff competition to any other better-known mystery/thriller authors. A fast-paced story that will keep you glued to the story, Jack Steele is my newest favorite character in a series! Well developed storyline, characters, action, and intrigue, get this and read it for yourself. You will find yourself, like me, anxiously awaiting the next installment. ...more

An action-packed, heart-stopping, seat-of-your pants adventure!

This book has everything: treason, betrayal, tragedy, family drama, clandestine government ops, a brooding hero, politics, drug cartels and so much more! It may sound like a bit much going on, but it actially blends quite nicely to make an awesome read!

I've already started Steel Trust because I HAVE to keep on this journey!

I received an ARC of this book from the author and I'm thrilled that I can give an honest review.

Jack Steel is a desperate loney soldiers whose daughter went missing a year ago, an event that broke him. Still he hasn't lost his conscience and refuses to kill civilians on a black ops operation to kill 'terrorists'. It turns out the operation really was for a different cause and his refusal brought him on a death list. But he isn't that easy to kill and fights back...

Everyone wants Jack Steel dead. Steel uses all his training in self-defense, weapons and hand-to-hand, to survive. Non-stop action all around the world as he fights off the U.S. government black op
assassins and big business killers. I was gifted this from the author.

Excellent! Well- drawn characters make a believable story. An indictment of leaders who have forgotten public service in the pursuit of self-service.

This is a wonderfully crafted action-packed story with twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat right to the last page. The story grabs you from the first page and the many twists and turns in the story make it a real page turner that makes it hard to put the book down. Don’t start reading it if you are not prepared to stay up all night!

Thanks to the author who gave me an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

If you enjoy Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne - you will enjoy this book. Steel Force is an action thriller with an engaging plot with plenty of conspiracies to keep you guessing. Jack Steel is an interesting well-rounded character who is driven by a strong moral code.
