Is Jacob Stearne a terrorist or a hero?
All Jacob wanted was a romantic weekend in Paris with his girlfriend. But when he spots terrorists bent on attacking a crowded church, he flies into action. The victims mistake him for one of the extremists causing the authorities to give him a choice: go undercover to expose neo-Nazis fanatics — or jail.

SUSPEND DISBELIEF, ALL YE WHO ENER HERE! Author Seeley James has put together a rollicking, fun romp of an action story. Yes, sometimes a vital character seems to show up just in time, like magic, but that’s part of the fun. James has labeled “Death and Conspiracy” as a “Jacob Stearne Thriller” but it is also book #7 in the Sabel Security series. This book focuses more on Stearne, although other supporting characters from Sabel Security also play critical roles in the story. Basically, Stearne gets drawn into trying to unravel a complicated global terrorist plot that bears overtones of serious racial bias. But who is Jacob Stearne? He is a conflicted, almost broken, character. A former Army Ranger, he struggles with relationships, maintains a deep concern for innocent bystanders, communicates regularly with a Roman god (Mercury) who may or may not be just a figment of imagination, and is really very good at one thing – killing people who need to be killed. “Death and Conspiracy” gives us a chance to explore all these aspects of Jacob Stearne, while still enjoying the page-turning allure of a good action thriller. It works well as a stand-alone read, but I recommend you also go back and work through the whole Sabel Security Series. (I received an Advance Reader copy of the book for this review.)
