Detective Joe Stone and his team investigate a major terrorist attack on one of London’s most iconic buildings. They soon draw up a list of suspects who are highly respected members of the community and government. When most of his team is attacked, it soon develops into a war of nerves and a race against time before a deadly weapon is unleashed with horrific consequences.
“Long Shot starts with an explosive opening chapter” – Claire Knight.
“A hard hitting thriller that will leave you breathless” – The Haphazardous Hippo.
“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” – Booksfromdusktilldawn.
“The story line its self is quick moving with lots going off, so certainly gets the adrenaline coursing through you” – Bytheletterbookreviews.
“Jack Steele writes short and snappy dialogue to keep up the tension throughout the narrative, staying with his trademark mini cliffhangers at the end of some of his chapters” – Mychestnutreadingtree.
Meet the author:
I was born in Hackney, London and grew up on the Bannister House Housing Estate in Hommerton. I now live in Nottinghamshire and married with two grown up children who now have lives of their own, leaving me time to indulge in my favourite passions, reading and writing. I still work full-time in the printing industry which is where I have been for the past 40 years. On many occasions it interferes with my writing, working extra hours or weekends, so it can be a balancing act but one I seem to manage along with an understanding wife of course.
I spent five years researching books, magazines, documentaries, movies and internet articles on various subjects as well as completing a creative writing course and attending workshops run by the Nottingham Writers Studio.
It was a great achievement in 2016 when I published my first Crime Thriller novel ‘Loose Canon’ with great reviews. It was the first Detective Joe Stone series and I was encouraged to write the sequel ‘Long Shot’ which is due for publication on July 29th 2017.
My writing style is a fast-paced page turner with cliff hangers, moral dilemmas and believeable characters.
I would like to thank all my readers, editors, bloggerss 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.

I would like to apologise for not being able to review this story for Jack in time… But if you keep your eyes peeled I will be reviewing both his books together in the future (ASAP), I will make it a special Jack Steele day. But from other reviewers as you can see above you will be crazy to miss out on this series. I cannot wait to dive in and tell you all what I personally think.
