This is my first Jack Steel novel. I have never even heard of him before. But if Steel Force is any kind of indicator as to the tension, action, suspense and adventure to be found in the Jack Steel series, then we will all soon know who he is. I can’t say that Jack is as compelling and sympathetic a character as Jason Bourne; hell, who is? But he is definitely in that upper echelon of fictional spies. Jack is an updated version of Jason, but with a greater emphasis on the active duty special forces aspect of the character. What I like most about Steel Force is the emphasis placed on the fact that men behind desks, whether government desks or corporate desks, often misuse their position at the expense of the soldier in the field. Sometimes with devastating consequences. Geoffrey Saign brings this point home with every bit of skill and intensity as the late great Robert Ludlum did. The result is a superior spy thriller, the likes of which I haven’t seen since Robert Ludlum passed away.

OK, by now you have figured out that Jack Steel is one bad dude. But that would mean nothing if there wasn't a compelling human side to this character. Jack has a lot of problems but he’s getting through them in the quiet, honorable way of Gary Cooper and those heroes of the ’40s and ’50s did. I can’t help but admire and cheer for a badass character with polite, quiet dignity. I loved him and I think a lot of other readers are going to feel that way too. If you relish well-written spy novels with a great plot and realistic characters and action, read Steel Force by Geoffrey Saign. I’m calling it now: Jack Steel is the next great spy series.
