A full on, action packed, easy reading novel about 46 year old (retired SAS) Jack Crane’s run in with a gang of car stealing crooks. This is the third Jack Crane novel, I happily read ‘The Stealers’ as a standalone story, as his background is explained. Crane, sometimes woefully unprepared, comes to the rescue of a damsel in distress. Basically, the bad guys are really nasty, and street wise Crane is happy to work outside the law and get handy when he needs to. Charles Hall certainly seems to know his cars, and his love for them shines through. The fight to gain the upper hand between the goody and the baddies does feel rather like a game of tennis on occasion, I almost felt the need for a score board. You may need to suspend a sense of reality as you read, but just put it to one side and enjoy the wild ride. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Stealers by Charles Hall

A rip-roaring read that takes Jack Crane into the heart of a deadly crime...Jack Crane's quiet retirement from the army is shattered when his iconic Red Mustang is stolen by a gang of vicious car thieves. Come what may, he wants his car back! Jack corners one of the gang members, a feisty young woman who is being coerced into the gang by its leader, Bradley. She agrees to help Crane, but before long they are drawn into a dangerous web, which takes them from East Anglia to France. Help arrives in the form of the gang's French security guard - an unlikely hero who is appalled to realise that the gang's sinister dealings also include child abduction. The trio find themselves embedded in a deadly crime syndicate. Cunning and resourceful, gang leader Bradley returns to the UK where he ensnares a close friend of Crane and holds her to ransom. It will take all of Crane's SAS skills to stop his murderous intent...
