Veteran Jacob Stearne and athlete Pia Sabel are all that stands between right — and a world full of deadly wrongs. The pair takes on corrupt politicians, rogue corporations, and terrorists in three novels ripped from tomorrow’s headlines. Join over 100,000 readers riveted by nearly 1,000 pages of murder, betrayal, rogues, and traitors. From the madness unveiled in ELEMENT 42, through destructive forces in DEATH AND DARK MONEY, to Americans who would use terrorists to push their political agenda in DEATH AND THE DAMNED, you’ll love the irresistible characters, the chilling masterminds, and tense circumstances. As one VineVoice reviewer said, “I could not put this book down.” Jacob Stearne was a killing machine for the Army until he started listening to Mercury, winged messenger of the Roman gods. Now he works for Sabel Security. This irresistible hero is definitely lethal—but is he divinely guided, completely insane, or the next rampage killer? Ever since Pia Sabel witnessed her parents’ murders, she’s been looking for ways to eliminate the corrupt and murderous. When her adopted father hands her the keys to a security company staffed with battle-scarred veterans, she discovers her calling as an avenging angel. Book #1 - ELEMENT 42: When a drug company tests a deadly disease only their patented drug can cure, overconfident heiress Pia Sabel and unstable veteran Jacob Stearne are all that stands between right and deadly wrong. Chapter 1: The voice in my head returned when I stopped taking my meds. My caseworker said the voice was part of my condition—PTSD-induced schizophrenia—but I call him Mercury, the winged messenger of the gods, and a damn good friend. Book #2 – DEATH AND DARK MONEY: Can a female athlete and a legendary veteran work with terrorist financiers to unravel a web of money and murder in time to save the country? Chapter 1: Brent Zola waited in a Washington DC diner on a frozen January evening, surrounded by the greasy smell of fries and the sharp clatter of dishes, unaware he was witnessing his best friend’s last hour of life. Book #3 – DEATH AND THE DAMNED: Why would a billionaire smuggle terrorists into the country? The next riveting thriller from sensational author Seeley James featuring the unrivaled heroine Pia Sabel and the legendary veteran Jacob Stearne asks the question: who can you trust? Chapter 1: Who to trust is the scariest decision we make in life. I grabbed him by the hair, pulled his head back, and, cheek-to-cheek, we contemplated the sparkling stars dotting the moonless Syrian sky. I sensed his eyeballs strain all the way to the right to look at me. His fingernails dug into my forearm. Anxiety caused him to miss the grandeur of the moment. Too bad. It was stunningly beautiful. You don’t see that many stars from over-lit American cities. But I tired of our two-second relationship and drew my blade across his throat, severing his carotid artery and larynx before he could scream a warning to the others. I dropped his carcass on the other jihadi at my feet. Unmatched in scope and depth, Sabel Security thrillers throw you into a unique world that kidnaps you on the opening pages and won’t release you until the end. Read one, and you’ll yearn for more. From the master of thrilling adventure comes the latest novel in a landmark series unlike anything you’ve read before. With Sabel Security, Seeley James has launched a groundbreaking world, combining psychological, political, and action thrills in a continuing epic. Mystery, loss, intrigue, humor, romance, and adventure fill the pages of these magnificent stories.

Before the bestselling Sabel Security series featuring Jacob Stearne and Mercury, Pia Sabel took over the company and ran into trouble. Sabel Origins #2, Bring It, chronicles that time Jacob, still on his meds, was tasked with saving the boss. When Pia Sabel is abducted after trying to bust a ring of deviant criminals, it’s up to veteran agent Jacob Stearne to navigate the dark web of deceit and lies to save her from her torturous captors. Pia Sabel expected a little recognition after she liberated a pedophile resort in Sri Lanka, not a State Department inquisition. Forced to play the deadliest game of her life, she finds molested children used in a new version of “enhanced interrogation tactics”. Putting herself in danger to save the innocent, her overconfidence leads to agonizing torment. Sabel Agent Jacob Stearne and his team of decorated veterans have lived through warzone horrors but nothing could have prepared them for the ugly reality they uncover. Fending off accusations of treason and terrorism, Jacob unravels a network of ambitious appointees and black-budget contractors to discover who is responsible for some of the most horrific crimes against humanity. Praise for Seeley James A fine thriller with intriguing locations, intricate plot twists and a complex heroine. – Kirkus Reviews I loved the character of Pia Sabel – there’s a girl Charlie Fox would team up with any day! -- Zoe Sharp, author of the Charlie Fox novels Seeley James has created a protagonist that is strong and yet conflicted. -- PJReviewofBooks.com I fell in love with the characters and can’t get enough of them … I felt every ounce of rage and desperation. -- CarolAnn Review An excellent fast moving action thriller -- Eric Crown, Founder of F500 company, Insight Enterprises Once I started reading, it was hard to put down. Can't wait for the next adventure! -- Robert Manning, Amazon "PTSD sufferer Jacob Stearne and his mythical Roman god Mercury take the reader on a fierce, unforgettable adventure." --Bill K. Yucatan Review 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…
