James Chapman, a fellow blogger who runs a web site called “Just Really Great Books” has placed Knights of the Saltier on his recommended book list. Check out his posting at http://just-really-great-books.blogspot.com/ and tell him how much you appreciate his support of this book and other great books out there.
Here’s what he had to say on his site:
“The story is about an organization, which works in secret to help people without the existence of the Order of the Saltier ever being revealed. The Order is structured in the same way as the orders of knighthood during the times of the crusades, but instead of armour and swords, they have high-tech gadgets like the CIA would use. I highly recommend this book, which is the first of a trilogy, it is a well-written, fresh and compelling story. This is a new author that is anticipated to become well known. ” Posted by James Chapman.
