Publisher's Summary

In Primary Threat (The Forging of Luke Stone, Book 3), a ground-breaking action thriller by number one best seller Jack Mars, elite Delta Force veteran Luke Stone, 29, leads the FBI's Special Response Team as they respond to a hostage situation on an oil rig in the remote Arctic.

Yet what at first seems like a simple terrorist event may, it turns out, be much more.

With a Russian master plan unfolding rapidly in the Arctic, Luke may have arrived at the precipice of the next world war.

And Luke Stone may just be the only man standing in its way.

Primary Threat is a standalone, un-putdownable military thriller, a wild action ride that will leave you listening late into the night. The precursor to the number one best-selling Luke Stone thriller series, this series takes us back to how it all began, a riveting series by best seller Jack Mars, dubbed "one of the best thriller authors" out there.

Also available is Jack Mars' number one best-selling Luke Stone thriller series (seven books), which begins with Any Means Necessary (Book 1), which has over 800 five-star reviews!

I'm glad I'm done with the "Forging of Luke Stone"

It's a good story, the narration is grating. the protagonists almost all sound like whiny gangsters from the 1930's-50's, accents get butchered, intonation more playful than in the suck ... I'm glad there's another narrator for the full fledged Luke Stone series.

just bad

Slow and the narrator ruins the book. The story line seems to want to go someplace but I only made it to chapter 5 before giving up. Not for me............... I will write this one off as a loss...

"MEH" A lot of hype, and no bite!

The plot This plot (in my opinion) lacks imagination. Overall the story was not very engaging because it was one of those stories where the villain is laughably shallow, and yet so many steps ahead of the good guys. When I say shallow, I mean like cartoon villain shallow. Oh this guy wants to destroy two-thirds of the world because... Mother Russia, and nostalgia for old the soviet days. Yet he gives no thought to how prepared Russia will be for a ruined world, and economy. The characters Like the cartoon grade villain, the good guys lack serious depth. Towards the middle story one of the main characters, (a real badass, bad boy like character) tries to distance himself from the big fight. But then out of nowhere he gets sweet talked into joining the operation anyway. The performance Like many I would agree that this narrator really didn't do a good job breathing life into this story. Arguably the story was not that good to begin with. However, he really managed to make the characters either sound really flat or whiny.

A Slow Rolling...

Not my favorite. The verbal sound effects distracted from the action being described. Use an audio file or text to illustrate the desired noise. The 8+ hour countdown was ridiculous. Being in a hurry or racing the clock does NOT make you faster. It felt like filler from a another writer. Funny it sounds like I didn't enjoy the story but I did but it felt really hurried.

Worlds Biggest Bad@$$ sounds like a whiney B.

I thought in the last couple books that the narrator was completely off from the tone of who Luke Stone is. The high pitched nasal whining finally got to me in this one. When the writing and narration can make Navy Seals seem like frightened teenagers at magic the gathering party...... I knew I had to write this. It was just too much this time.

An ok thriller.

By the numbers thriller with plenty of clichés. Still, it kept me amused on a few long car journeys! The narrator is decent enough but the Russian accents are pretty bad.
