A woman is found dead on the island of Gozo. The cops say she fell from the Azure Window tourist spot, but her father thinks otherwise.
CIA Section Chief Foster needs help to prove it was murder, so he turns to the only person he knows can get the job done: John Steel.
The Hive, securely seated under the US Embassy on the island of Malta, is an operation that monitors all passage from North Africa and the Middle East into Europe and the US. A platform that requires the latest in technology and facial recognition.
In seven days, that software will be updated. In two days, all hell will break loose. And the clock is ticking for an attack on American soil.
Together with the beautiful Sammara Malk of Mossad, can Steel find out who killed Lucy – and stop whoever is behind the impending attack?
Stuart Field is back again with another John Steel novel, and I was so excited to be on the blog tour for this one. I’ve been absolutely loving this series, and Maltese Steel did not disappoint!
I think this can work as a standalone, but you’d miss the other amazing books and the character development over the series.
Fast paced, this one kept me on my toes. The plot was excellent and Stuart Field‘s writing ability is incredible. His attention to details really draw you in as a reader.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*
