In PRIMARY COMMAND (The Forging of Luke Stone—Book #2), a ground-breaking action thriller by #1 bestseller Jack Mars, elite Delta Force veteran Luke Stone, 29, leads the FBI’s Special Response Team on a nail-biting mission to save American hostages from a nuclear submarine.

Primary Command

Great book. The author has made such a believable protagonist in Luke Stone. Have enjoyed all seven of the original books and am now enjoying the newer versions.
Mr. Mars, you have added another great supporting person in Murphy. Hope to see him again.

The deception and intrigue in Primary Command holds your interest as you keep turning pages to see how the plot and sub-plots unfold. Initially, Luke Stone and his team are sent to rescue three men who were captured trying to install listening devices attached to the Russian communications network under the Black Sea. However, as we find out later, it is the first in a series of events that are masterfully woven to initiate World War III. Another page-turning thriller by Jack Mars!

Primary Command

More action and surprises with the Special Response Team (SRT). The book also gives more in depth character development for the SRT, their friends, and people not their friends. Often it is difficult to tell a good guy from a bad guy. Susan Hopkins gets a walk-on part as well (If you have already read the Luke Stone Thriller series you are well acquainted with this wonderful lady). Another great read from Jack Mars.
