Warm up your holiday season with Nick Auclair's thrilling duo of Steel's adventures.
Add them to your Amazon wishlist (or just treat yourself)
The sequel, Steel's Gold
"In many ways, Steel’s Gold is an old-fashioned thriller, set in an exotic location with plenty of sex and violence, but its overlay of political intrigue and psychological cross-currents give it added depth and resonance. Call it a guilty pleasure with benefits." (Hill Rag)
Thank you and enjoy!
