Summary

A passenger jet is attacked in Northern Africa by terrorists wielding RPGs, resulting in an enormous loss of life. Yet US intelligence reports this is merely a distraction, a prelude to a worse terror incident.  

A cargo ship is pirated off the African coast, and terrorists are puzzled to find in its vast hold just one mysterious crate. It contains a weapon they do not understand - one of vital interest to al Qaeda. It is a weapon, we learn, that will inflict catastrophic damage on the US if not stopped in time.  

The weapon disappears deep into the heart of Africa, and as all hope seems lost to retrieve it, Luke Stone is summoned. Forced to cross deserts, to enter jungles, Luke and his team embark on a mad race across Africa, on a suicidal mission: to destroy the weapon before it is too late.  

A political thriller with nonstop action, dramatic international settings, and heart-pounding suspense, House Divided is the seventh installment in the best-selling and critically acclaimed Luke Stone series, an explosive new series that will leave you listening late into the night.

Critic reviews

"Thriller writing at its best. Thriller enthusiasts who relish the precise execution of an international thriller, but who seek the psychological depth and believability of a protagonist who simultaneously fields professional and personal life challenges, will find this a gripping story that’s hard to put down.” (Midwest Book Review

Shaker

Good story/crsis and better family side story with his son and Susan. Loved the inner and more physical Ed. Keep Dunn! Bring him back to offset the goody twoshoes. Nice dose of near reality.

I returned Decoy

I liked this book. The newest boo, Decoy, is impossible for me listen to. Why did you screw up a good thing?

Some good, some...

Sometimes the level of detail on minor issues is painful, at other times almost no detail provided, especially for the ending or wrapup. As I went through the series I noticed a significant increase in the use of verbatim "recycled" material from previous volumes. Disappointing

Fresh clever plot

You get involved, e.g., President Susan is incompetent. Doesn’t effectively manage people, sabotage, crises, issues or strategy. Not a team leader. Luke stone is incredible superhero.

The Finally Chapter

The final book of the series didn’t drop the intensity, story telling and presented a realistic problem. I really enjoyed listening to the story and it’s funny when it evokes emotion. When Ed was working to turn off the device I was gritting my teeth! My consistent critique for Mr Carr, you need to get briefed on tactical operations and weapons.... What the heck is a “M15?” Keep up the good work and I hope Luke Stone and the SRT return.

House Divided another Luke Stone thriller.

I enjoyed this book. I'm looking forward to new Luke Stone novels. The narrator did a great job.
