“One of the best thrillers I have read this year. The plot is intelligent and will keep you hooked from the beginning. The author did a superb job creating a set of characters who are fully developed and very much enjoyable. I can hardly wait for the sequel.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Any Means Necessary)

When nuclear waste is stolen by jihadists in the middle of the night from an unguarded New York City hospital, the police, in a frantic race against time, call in the FBI. Luke Stone, head of an elite, secretive, department within the FBI, is the only man they can turn to. Luke realizes right away that the terrorists’ aim is to create a dirty bomb, that they seek a high-value target, and that they will hit it within 48 hours.

A cat and mouse chase follows, pitting the world’s most savvy government agents versus its most sophisticated terrorists. As Agent Stone peels back layer after layer, he soon realizes he is up against a vast conspiracy, and that the target is even more high value than he could have imagined—leading all the way to the President of the United States.

With Luke framed for the crime, his team threatened and his own family in danger, the stakes could not be higher. But as a former special forces commando, Luke has been in tough positions before, and he will not give up until he finds a way to stop them—using any means necessary.

Twist follows twist as one man finds himself up against an army of obstacles and conspiracies, pushing even the limits of what he can handle, and culminating in a shocking climax.

A political thriller with heart-pounding action, dramatic international settings, and non-stop suspense, ANY MEANS NECESSARY marks the debut of an explosive new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #2 in the Luke Stone series is also now available!

    Well I had already read and reviewed this book! But I was about to start #2 but decided that I would reread #1. This is straight action, excellent story-telling and grippingly intense. In the current political environment (2/19), seems like the general overthrow scenario could occur again
  • Hooked to the end

    I’ve always been a fan of military novels and got this ebook after putting off reading for almost a year. Great plot and sub-plots that draws the reader in and captivates till the last page. Only critique is that the bad guy is highlighted a little too early/obviously in the book. Highly recommended and a great read. Thank you, Jack!
  • Raised my blood pressure!

    So exciting but things like this could possibly happen. So much action and lots of plots. Couldn’t wait until I finished the book.

    This was a very good book with lots of action. My one complaint with this book and any others like it is that I don't like an ending that is not complete. I don't like to feel that I am required to read the next book to find out what happens. I am sure the next book will have the same type of ending, and I may not care to read all the books in the series.
