Before the bestselling Sabel Security series featuring Jacob Stearne and Mercury, Pia Sabel took over the company and ran into trouble. Sabel Origins #2, Bring It, chronicles that time Jacob, still on his meds, was tasked with saving the boss.

When Pia Sabel is abducted after trying to bust a ring of deviant criminals, it's up to veteran agent Jacob Stearne to navigate the dark web of deceit and lies to save her from her torturous captors.

Pia Sabel expected a little recognition after she liberated a pedophile resort in Sri Lanka, not a State Department inquisition. Forced to play the deadliest game of her life, she finds molested children used in a new version of "enhanced interrogation tactics". Putting herself in danger to save the innocent, her overconfidence leads to agonizing torment.

Sabel Agent Jacob Stearne and his team of decorated veterans have lived through warzone horrors but nothing could have prepared them for the ugly reality they uncover. Fending off accusations of treason and terrorism, Jacob unravels a network of ambitious appointees and black-budget contractors to discover who is responsible for some of the most horrific crimes against humanity.

Praise for Seeley James

A fine thriller with intriguing locations, intricate plot twists and a complex heroine. – Kirkus Reviews

I loved the character of Pia Sabel – there's a girl Charlie Fox would team up with any day! -- Zoe Sharp, author of the Charlie Fox novels

Seeley James has created a protagonist that is strong and yet conflicted. --

I fell in love with the characters and can't get enough of them ... I felt every ounce of rage and desperation. -- CarolAnn Review

An excellent fast moving action thriller -- Eric Crown, Founder of F500 company, Insight Enterprises

Interview with Seeley James from

DW: Do readers really compare Pia and Jacob to other literary heroes and heroines?  

SJ: I've heard Pia Sabel compared to Jack Reacher many times because she's a straight-forward, no-nonsense heroine who beats the crap out of people. Recently, I've heard Jacob Stearne in the same breath as Stephanie Plum because of his whacky lifestyle and romantic problems. It's appropriate because he's our comic-relief character.

DW: What is your favorite book of all time? How has it influenced you and your writing?

I don't have just one. One Shot by Lee Child, because it has such an intricate set of clues, ranks right up there with First Drop by Zoe Sharp, because she nailed the teenagers with incredible insight and humor.

DW: Did you always want to be a writer or did you fall into the profession?

I was nineteen and single when I adopted a three-year-old girl and raised her (More about that on my site, ). Kids need a lot of money and attention, so I worked in the upwardly mobile tech industry. Later in life, my career afforded me the ability to take a huge risk.

DW: Which authors have had a profound impact on your writing?

SJ: Gillian Flynn because she thinks way outside the Agatha Christie formula. Janet Evanovich because her books are just plain fun. J. D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) has some phenomenal writing techniques. Daniel Silva, Harlan Coben, John Sandford, James Rollins, A. G. Riddle, the list just goes on and on...

About the Author

His near-death experiences range from talking a jealous husband into putting the gun down to spinning out on an icy freeway in heavy traffic without touching anything. His resume ranges from washing dishes to global technology management. His personal life stretches from homeless at 17, adopting a 3-year-old at 19, getting married at 37, fathering his last child at 43, hiking the Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim several times a year, and taking the occasional nap.

His writing career ranges from humble beginnings with short stories in The Battered Suitcase, to being awarded a Medallion from the Book Readers Appreciation Group. Seeley is best known for his Sabel Security series of thrillers featuring athlete and heiress Pia Sabel and her bodyguard, veteran Jacob Stearne. One of them kicks ass and the other talks to the wrong god.

His love of creativity began at an early age, growing up at Frank Lloyd Wright’s School of Architecture in Arizona and Wisconsin. He carried his imagination first into a successful career in sales and marketing, and then to his real love: fiction.

# Bring It Sabel Security Book II Bring it is the second book I've read of the Sabel Security series. I liked the first one enough to continue, though it's been a while since I've read anything due to some vision problems. I just started reading again about one month ago, so it should tell you something that I chose this book so soon. Anyway, on to the book. The action starts immediately. At first, I was a bit confused, and thought it might have been since it had been so long between reads, but Seeley filled in the details nicely, and I realized that some of the events had happened previously. In a mystery or thriller, one of the important parts of the book are plot twists and James doesn't disappoint here. The plot is well thought out and delivered nicely, complete with the unexpected twist. I like this in a book or movie. It makes it exciting when you know that something unexpected might happen. The other thing that's refreshing is the character development. I had a minor issue in the first book with character development, but that has been resolved. I think the development is good, and the characters also will surprise you. Another good thing. As usual, Seeley does an excellent job of setting, and letting you feel as if you are right there with the character, no matter where they happen to be. Whether it's a remote island, the nation's capitol, or Eastern Europe, Seeley does a great job of making you feel part of it. This is no easy task, but he does it well. Lastly, the action is good and believable. All in all a great read and a series I would recommend.

WOW! James, Pia and her crew take us on another wild ride. This was a real page turner for me. Story line was awesome and the cast as usual were perfect. A high treason Washington conspiracy up there with some of the best. Loads of action, indecision and mistakes along with a new character kept me on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend reading this Pia Sable series of books !

I enjoyed this thriller for its well-paced plot, vivid description, and believable characters. The action starts right away. Since part of the story has happened before the book begins, the beginning could have been confusing, but the author weaves enough background into the narrative so you understand what's going on. The plot twists are unexpected. Characters are sometimes not what they seem to be. The description of places is deftly done without slowing down the story. And the story covers a lot of ground, from an isolated island to Washington DC, from the Azores to a town in Romania. The description of the action is riveting. It pulls you through the story pretty much nonstop. And it's credible. (The scene where Pia is water boarded is so credible it's scary.) The heroes have skills, but they don't perform superhuman feats. And they can be wounded like actual human beings. None of the characters are the kind of ciphers you sometimes find in thrillers. I won't forget Pia, Jacob, or Tania anytime soon. And I definitely want to read more about them.
