ABOUT THE SERIES

Pia Sabel is the CEO of Sabel Securities.

She is not the founder of that highly successful company, geared towards keeping safe people who have made dangerous enemies and who have enough money to pay for the impressive protection Sabel Securities can provide. That man is her adopted father, a man who took her in when she was quite young after her parents were murdered. He raised her as his own and the love and respect they have for each other is genuine and deep.

Having reached adulthood and having a chance to make a name for herself already, this being in the international soccer arena where she was a star player, Sabel was handed control of the company by the billionaire owner and told, more or less, do not ruin it.

To many of the operatives working for Sabel, the young woman was a travesty as the new boss. What did she know about this line of work? What kind of leader can a pampered debutante actually be especially when things go bad. The fact that she had never been pampered and that her father, loving though he was, always made sure she worked for what she got, meant little to them and she knew it. She was aware she had to prove to them she deserved her position.

In the course of her assuming the management position and taking part in the more high-profile cases, Sabel would make mistakes and pay for them as well as learning from them. She will learn from the beginning how inexperience can be damning and she will make it a point to immerse herself in her new responsibilities. She does learn and she does get a lot better.

But in the course of this learning, her life will be put at risk many times. Thankfully she has Jacob Stearne to have her back.

Stearne is a veteran of the U.S. military having served for quite a few years and proving to be possibly the best killing machine the Pentagon had ever produced. He was absolutely lethal when he had to be and nothing seemed to phase him. At least until he went nuts and heard voices. Then he got even scarier to the brass and they let him go. Sabel Securities gave him a new home and he was quite content - albeit still hearing those voices when not on his meds. Luckily for Pia Sabel, he is absolutely devoted to her. Good, albeit unnerving, man to have watching your six.

Oh, about those voices - actually just one voice but it is the Roman god Mercury who despite being several millennia old talks in modern slang. But when he talks, it pays to listen because while it might really his subconscious pointing out things that his intuition has realized, it has saved his life and the lives of those working with him many, many times. Then again, it might really be Mercury.

MY COMMENTS

Ever since I met Batman (well, the comics) I have loved the idea of a rich highly skilled person going into harm's way to help the underdog or downtrodden. That is a whole lot of what the Pia Sabel series is all about - she is the rich daughter who is given control of - and I love this part a lot - the powerful security company that was created initially to protect her. Now that she in running the show, though, she also uses it for her pet projects that go up against really bad people, and bad governments, all over the world.

Another thing I like about it is she makes mistakes. She is new to this and she screws up. Not a lot but when there are bombs exploding and bullets flying, a mistake can be and is very deadly. This is NOT the perfect agent smoothly dispatching the ungodly. She and her people are highly trained and extremely competent but they (well, she) makes wrong choices and then have to struggle to overcome them.

And then there is Jacob Stearne. I like him a lot. He loves the ladies and he loves the action and he talks to a Roman God that, of course, is not really there and he is a hoot.

This is a series that is just a lot of fun to read.
