Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if you enjoy the spate of Marvel and DC superhero movies that have been popular the last few years, then you are going to enjoy The Knights of the Saltire, book one of the series of the same name. My thinking is that a vigilante is a vigilante. If you like what they do when they acquire super powers, you will probably like them when they are just dedicated, well meaning citizens. William Speir gives us not one vigilante, but an entire secret organization. An Order, as it were. This is the story and premise of The Knights of the Saltire and it is a fascinating one. The novel is written in one of the best police story tones I have read recently. As I was reading it, I felt strangely like I was watching back to back episodes of Law and Order. I like this book. I like the idea of a secret society of honorable, strong men who say, “enough is enough,” and decide to help society bring bad guys to justice. I know that it is a lot more difficult and complicated than the movies would have me believe. In reality, taking justice into your own hands requires honor, secrecy, incredible knowledge, and not a little luck and experience. This is the story William Speir tells, and luckily he tells it well. The characters are believable and the plot is snatched right out of real life. I liked it a lot!
