Publisher's Summary

In Primary Valor (The Forging of Luke Stone, Book 5), a ground-breaking action thriller by number one best seller Jack Mars, elite Delta Force veteran Luke Stone, 29, and the FBI’s Special Response Team, are summoned when a teenage girl is taken captive and trafficked to a billionaire’s private retreat in South America. Luke is handed an impossible rescue mission, pitting one man against an army. 

Making matters worse, behind it all may be something much greater, leading to the upper echelons of government, and to a national security crisis.  

Primary Valor is a stand-alone, 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 bestseller Jack Mars, dubbed “one of the best thriller authors” out there. 

Book 6 is also available! 

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

Well-balanced all around

Let's get the narration out of the way. It's quite good, not perfect, but good. The women's voices are fine, and there is differentiation among the men. He needs to learn to improve his Spanish (poliCIa not poLIcia), and he needs to pronounce Luke's name correctly. It needs to be said with the vowel of "Luc, use the Force," the same vowel as in "shoot". He says it as "Look" you know, rhyming with book, took, and shook. It can slip through most of the time, but not when Luke looks at something; then it becomes "Look looked". Made me snort in the middle of a shoot out. Okay, 'nuff said.

Shooting, flying, planning, back stabbing, megalomania, kidnapping, trafficking, it's all here. But it is better than that; there's guilt, trauma, and introspection. Several good people die and that's sad. The story balances the action with the self-justifying done by the bad guys, and the soul searching done by Luke, Ed, and the victim, as well as contemplating the motivations of the 70-year-old who can't leave the work. And then there's the question of whether death is enough punishment for some crimes. Not just empty hours of blood letting.
