Join 100,000+ readers riveted by the bestselling Sabel Security series for a gripping novel ripped from tomorrow’s headlines.
Veteran Jacob Stearne and athlete Pia Sabel race across the globe to find terrorists and the billionaire who financed them. Fleeing their pursuit, the terrorist leader eschews his morals to save his children and wonders, is he damned?
I fell in love with the characters and can't get enough of them. -- BookFanatic
Jacob tries to save his relationship but can’t shake the bad feeling about an American he rescued from ISIL. After a strange call from Syria, he asks questions of bureaucrats uninterested in the threat. When he discovers a plot against the American government, his mental health records surface and authorities dismiss what they perceive are delusions.
Interview with Seeley James from DigiWriting.com
DW: Do readers really compare Pia and Jacob to other literary heroes and heroines?
SJ: I’ve heard Pia Sabel compared to Jack Reacher many times because she’s a straight-forward, no-nonsense heroine who beats the crap out of people. Recently, I’ve heard Jacob Stearne in the same breath as Stephanie Plum because of his whacky lifestyle and romantic problems. It’s appropriate because he’s our comic-relief character.
DW: What is your favorite book of all time? How has it influenced you and your writing?
I don’t have just one. One Shot by Lee Child, because it has such an intricate set of clues, ranks right up there with First Drop by Zoe Sharp, because she nailed the teenagers with incredible insight and humor.
DW: Did you always want to be a writer or did you fall into the profession?
I was nineteen and single when I adopted a three-year-old girl and raised her (More about that on my site, http://seeleyjames.com/about/ ). Kids need a lot of money and attention, so I worked in the upwardly mobile tech industry. Later in life, my career afforded me the ability to take a huge risk.
DW: Which authors have had a profound impact on your writing?
SJ: Gillian Flynn because she thinks way outside the Agatha Christie formula. Janet Evanovich because her books are just plain fun. J. D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) has some phenomenal writing techniques. Daniel Silva, Harlan Coben, Russell Blake, John Sandford, James Rollins, A. G. Riddle, Lance Charnes, the list just goes on and on…

Absolutely enjoyed the 5th book of the Pia Sable series. Disturbing to see just how easy it could be for terrorist to cross our borders. Pia's crew battles even the gov't forces to protect and defend the country . Only problem with the book is now I have to wait for #6. Sandi/MT
Pia and Jacob are having personal problems and need to uncover who is bringing terrorists into the U.S.. This book is exciting from being to end. As always Seeley James has written an excellent book. Must read. I guarantee you will enjoy this book. Joy943
