Today is my stop on the blog tour for Long Shot by Jack Steele. He is a really lovely guy and his writing is so face paced it will have you on the end of your seat!
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.
Ok so I have to insert a disclaimer here: I didn’t finish the book. I will explain though. What I read was awesome, very fast paced and really gripped me HOWEVER I had not read Loose Cannon as I didn’t have the time to. I got roughly about half way through Long Shot and realised that reading Loose Cannon was a must read prior to Long Shot.

I was born in Hackney, London and grew up on the Bannister House Housing Estate in Homerton. 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 Cannon’ with great reviews. It was the first in the 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 believable characters.
I would like to thank all my readers, editors, bloggers and Crime book club friends who, like you, Lisa, have been so supportive through this process. Your encouragement drives me on to write the next book in the series.
