Yet Another Review of “Knights of the Saltier”

The third review of the book.

Left me wanting more!, August 19, 2010 by MRW of Arizona.

Knights of the Saltier is the first book of a trilogy by William Speir, and I wish the next two books were already published – I can’t wait to read what happens to these characters next! In Book 1, we are introduced to a group of characters that do something unusual – they help people in secret. They ask for no recognition, they seek no reward, they just go around helping people get justice and helping law enforcement capture criminals. The Order of the Saltier, which is the organization these characters belong to, is sort of Mission Impossible (the 70’s TV series) meets the Knights Templar. The book has a lot of energy, and it is just the right length to read comfortably without forgetting at the end of the book what happened at the beginning. I recommend this book to anyone who likes action, espionage, intrigue, and adventure novels. William Speir is a great writer and I think we can expect great things from him in the future!
