Any Means Necessary (a Luke Stone Thriller—Book #1) by Jack Mars Book Summary

“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!

Any Means Necessary. Enjoyed the twist and turns of the book. Quick reading and kept your attention. Was surprised as how it ended. Looking forward to reading the sequel.

Reads like watching a movie!. Very well written and engaging the whole way through!

Any means necessary. Good read.

Great read. Good story fast paced

Inconsistent and predictable. It’s so unfortunate that the continuity of character interaction is so inconsistent between this and the ‘Forging Luke Stone’ series. It turned me off in the first chapter, and I couldn’t continue. It’s just lazy. Not recommended.

Interesting from the beginning. It felt like an Action movie. Very interesting plot Going to red the next one in line now !

Good and bad. Good reading. Not boring at all! However, I don’t like being told how many words I have to write in this space. It puts me in a mindset not to read the next book in this series. Bemullins

👍🏻. I like the book but I don’t like that The Forging of Luke Stone doesn’t correlate with this series. Doesnt make sense.

Any Means Necessary. Excellent! Can’t get enough !!!!!

Fantastic!. Fantastic story. Kept the story line going to the last page!

Excellent thriller could happen tomorrow. Jack Mars builds his thriller right out of what could be tomorrow’s headlines. Luke Stone is a believable terrific agent who you are glad is on your side.

Any Means Necessary. A real page-turner, scary in our current environment of political senselessness. Good suspense.

Any means necessary. An unrealistic story from a person whose only goal is to sell more books. The no ending is real disappointment. Would not recommend this book to anyone.

Stars strong.... but. At about the midpoint the plot starts struggling for credibility ... just walk her in front of a camera, lol

Fast-paced. Enjoyable read that really makes you hate the Republicans more! Viva lá peace

Any Means Necessary. Really enjoyed all the suspense and action. Loved the characters and how the main ones come out every time. Thanks for a good read.

Action Packed and Fast Paced. Any Means Necessary by Jack Mars is the first book in the Luke Stone series. I read the series quite a few years ago and am rereading the series and realized I never left a review. The plot regarding the planned murder of the president and the overthrow of the government is chilling and frightening especially in light of the sitting president’ tactics after losing the 2020 elections. Luke Stone is a hero, a man who chooses his country’s needs and career over his family, but definitely is troubled.

By any means necessary!!. Excellent Read!

Any Means Necessary. 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.

Terrible follow up to The Forging of Luke Stone. After listening to this for 15 minutes, I am deleting the series because it made zero sense. They talked about how one of the main characters from the forging, a blue stone, which came before this series was being introduced to somebody that Luke stone had never seen. And it made no sense and has no place in the Luke Stone series.

Page turner. Even with the multiple typos and occasional poor grammar this was a great read. Jumping from the first two in the series “Forging Luke Stone”, to this one, took a chapter or two to realize I missed something by not finishing the first series. All in all it kept me reading to the end. I will return for the next book(s) after I read the forging series.

Any Means Necessary. Fast read, good author. Jack Mars moves the reader through each chapter without repetitive descriptions while increasing the suspense and focusing on the story.

Terrific book. Great non-stop action. Spellbinding

Any Means Necessary. Loved the book! Scary stuff but probably not far from the truth. Hate that it’s a cliffhanger.

dope book. dope book

Non-stop Action. Great plot with twists and turns.

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.

Perfect title. I couldn’t wait to turn the page to see what was going to happen next. Well written. Would read additional titles by this author. Enjoy books like this.

Any means necessary. Luke Stone is my hero - and everyone else’s too!! - Charley

A great title.. Another fabulous yarn by Jack Mars bravo.

Eh.. Couldn’t get past the first few chapters boring as heck

Exciting fast pace. Very exciting and fast pace, but so unrealistic. Ending was very abrupt.

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!

Disappointed. I really was hoping to have discovered a series, new to me, to be excited about. Instead, reading this book was a slog. The characters were flat, and while the premise sounded exciting, I was bored for most of the read.

Great Story!. Love the character Luke Stone. Fast paced, well written and can’t wait to read the next one.

Familiar themes. The books starts out with the same Islamic terrorist threat to America but quickly diverts to domestic terrorism and a coup toppling the American government. Sound familiar? It is the same super hero, silent macho, secretive government agents, accountable to no one who save the day. These types of protagonists, who are found throughout many contemporary novels are getting a little threadbare and boring.

Any Means Necessary. Non-stop, plain and simple exhausting action! Wonderfully written and engaging. Can’t put it down.

Great action. Action packed from beginning to end.

Outstanding!. This is the last of Jack Mars’ series that I’m reading to get caught up on all of his writing. They’re all very good but this blows them all away! If someone doesn’t option this for a movie…they should because this has everything. Action, intelligent plot twists, intrigue, humor…did I mention action?! I cannot wait to finish this series!

Any Means Necessary. Jack Mars has penned an action-packed political-plot page turner. Great character development and deviously clever story with twists and turns throughout. Hard to put down but when the end comes, you’ll be ready to dig into Luke Stone’s next oversize adventure. I am!!

Any Means Necessary. Any Means Necessary...EXCELLENT. Top drawer in all respects. DLSmith

Any means Necassary. Unimaginative, predictable plot. Obvious villains. Dissappointing.

Any means necessary. 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

Real page-turner. This is a really good book and a very easy read. You’ll find you won’t want to stop reading it. The author does a good job of making you feel too are a part of the action.

Great read!!!. Any Means Necessary was a great suspense book. I couldn’t put it down. It really helped take my mind off of Covid-19 while I was staying at home. Thanks!!!

Any Means Necessary. I read into the book a very short way and was slapped in the face with the most filthy of filthy profane word. You writers need to realize that not everyone is profane and you are missing out on a very large percentage of the population = money because of it. I will not read this author again.

Non Stop Thriller. Fast pace story keeps you turning the pages late into the night.

Any Means Mecessary. Wow! Quite a ride! Kept me reading so I finished it in 1day; certainly well written. No problem with my recommending it.

Any Means Necessary. Read it from the from front to back before putting it down!

Mars is a star. A really fast paced and exciting thriller. Pretty unbelievable sometimes.

Thoroughly enjoyed. Great read and can't wait to continue the story

Old Hat. While this is an entertaining read, the plot is something from the Cold War era. ************* SPOILER ALERT ******************* The story that nasty old capitalists want to seize power is one that I'd thought had been consigned to the great plot graveyard in the sky. But, obviously not. ******************SPOILER ALERT ******************* Although it, the plot that is, is cliched and hackneyed the story itself and how it unfolds makes this an entertaining read. The characters are fairly believable and, while the main characters don't wear their underpants outside their trousers on too many occasions, there is enough action and suspense to keep one engaged. Would I read the others in the series? At this point I'm not sure.

Great book, love the Luke Stone series. The book keeps you drawn in and guessing, you won’t want to put it down. I’ve really enjoyed the Luke Stone series so far. The only downside is that I came across the prequel series first. The main character (Stone) apparently meets some of his supporting cast for the first time in this book (Ed, Swann & Trudy) but he’s already working closely with them in the prequel series. Would have enjoyed it more if the characters stories flowed a bit better.

A cracking good read. Good characterization.. Would have given it 5 stars but for the very abrupt ending.

ANY MEANS NECESSARY .. Very good fiction ,especially for a First attempt . Enjoyed reading .

Burn this book.. One big cliche, not worth buying for free.

Ant Means Necessary.a review. I have enjoyed this book very much and look forward to reading the next book in the series,it was a thriller from beginning to end

American thriller. Easy to read, follows the usual plot one good man saves America from itself. Fast paced a good read.

Action packed and easy read. Packed with action from start to finish. Easy to read but hard to put down. The story has enough technical detail to be interesting but not overloading.

Any means necessary. Brilliant

Any Means Necessary. Pathetically weak ending.

Couldn't put it down. First of Mars' books I have read. Couldn't put it down. Loved the characters and there were a couple of surprising plot twists. Thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Purchased the 2nd instalment straight away.

It got me.. I picked this up as the free book on iTunes. As soon as I finished it I bought the next instalment. It looks like Luke Stone and I will be spending some time together through his adventures.

A must have. Couldn't get enough. The first book of the Luke Stone collection and is a must read!!!! You'll be crazy not to! WARNING! A must read during the day book and not a 'Read before you sleep' book or you'll be up all night reading this fantastic book!! I know, I learnt it the hard way, Guaranteed.

Love it. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. Fantastic thriller

Any Means Necessary. Enjoyable read, but a bit disappointing to have to buy the next book to find out what happens to Luke's family.

Thrilling!. Really enjoyed this one. Highly recommended.
