Steel Fear by Brandon Webb and John David Mann was an interesting book. It revolves around a series of murders on board the US Navy aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln. The main character in the story is a Navy Seal being transported back to the US on the carrier. He is wondering why the Navy is sending him back this way after a mission went wrong. He apparently blacked out during the mission and does not recall what happened and he is using the return cruise to try and determine what happened.

Finn becomes a suspect in the murders, because he had dealings with several of the victims. He is trying to figure out why he is being set up by the murderer to take the fall. While all of this is going on there is a separate story line about the failures of command on board the ship that is partly fueling the suspicion and the targeting of Finn as an easy solution to the problem.

A fairly good story that you need to pay attention to the few clues to the real murderer. If not, you are going to be surprised at the end and wondering how you ignored the clues given to you during the story. ( )

Review of uncorrected ebook file

Navy SEAL sniper Finn boards the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, hitching a ride home from the Persian Gulf. He’s not at all sure why he’s going home, he doesn’t remember what happened on his team’s last mission, and he fears his disgrace is the result of something gone terribly wrong in Mukalla. But Finn tries to set those concerns aside as he comes to realize that something is terribly wrong aboard the carrier. Morale is low; the ship’s captain is week and ineffectual. As Finn wanders the decks, he sees the furtive meetings, the stealthy interactions, the unexplained.

And then people begin to disappear. Suicides? Or something much more sinister?

Investigation into the purported suicides reveals the presence of a killer aboard ship and suspicion immediately falls on the ship’s newcomer . . . Finn. Can the troubled SEAL prove his innocence? And can he identify the killer?

Set within the confines of an aircraft carrier deployed to the Persian Gulf, the strong sense of place [and the accurately detailed description of life aboard the carrier] keeps the reader involved in this absorbing quasi-locked room tale of military service. The well-defined, believable characters, the undercurrent of apprehension, the constantly-building suspense, and the unexpected twists and turns of the plot all combine to create a can’t-put-it-down, edge-of-your-seat thriller. Detailed and action-packed, readers are sure to try to suss out the identity of the killer as the story unfolds and will find it difficult to set this one aside before turning the final page.

While the main mystery . . . the killer aboard ship . . . is resolved, some questions remain, presumably saved for resolution in the next book(s) in the series. This delightful circumstance leaves readers happily anticipating more adventures with the enigmatic lone wolf Navy SEAL.

Highly recommended.

Nowadays I can always use a good escape from the real world and this book was a good escape. While there is definitely a main character here, Finn, this book is from the point of view of multiple characters. I have to say that the first half felt a bit long to me but that might have been because it was slower paced than the second half. I was definitely more interested in the book throughout the second half and I can't say that I was able to figure out who was behind everything.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley. ( )

This is a promising start to a new series. As a murder mystery set on a Navy carrier ship, there are plenty of suspects. Among them is the Navy Seal with the mysterious past who has just arrived on board and is at the center of the story. The authors provide a lot of ship details, such as layout, personnel positions, equipment, etc., that didn’t really interest me but might be enjoyed by a Navy ship buff. I will be checking out the next book in the series. ( )

I've been looking for a new thriller that would actually thrill me for a while now. I am happy to say that Steel Fear did that for me.

Finn, a Navy SEAL, is being sent back stateside under a cloud of suspicion. His last mission had gone terribly wrong and he is being set up to take to fall for it. He's shipping home aboard the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, which is suffering from poor leadership, low morale, and now a string of missing and murdered crew...

The authors created a character in Finn that just keeps you interested, and there are depths to him that still have yet to be uncovered. The supporting characters are done just as well, where they are all feel like real people and are interesting in their own right. The way the authors crafted the characters add to the complexity of the story as you can't just dismiss them out of hand. The Naval themes are accurate enough to keep the story feeling like it could really happen, without letting the details get in the way of the storytelling. There are so many layers in the story that are effectively intertwined... I would be quite surprised if you have it figured out by the end.

A big thank-you to Ballantine for allowing me to read and review this book. ( )
