Summary

A biological agent is stolen from a biocontainment lab. Weaponized, it could kill millions, and a desperate national hunt ensues to catch the terrorists before it is too late. Luke Stone, head of an elite FBI department, with his own family still in jeopardy, has vowed to walk away - but when the new president, barely sworn in, calls him, he can't turn his back on her.

Shocking devastation follows, winding its way all the way to the president, who finds her own family in jeopardy. Her strength tested as she steps into her new role, she surprises even her closest advisors. Rival presidential staff want Luke out of the picture, and with his team in danger, and left to his own resources, it becomes personal. But Luke Stone never gives up until he, or the terrorists, are dead.

Luke realizes quickly that the terrorist's final target is even more high value - and more terrifying - than even he could imagine. Yet with only a few days before doomsday, it's unlikely that even he can stop what's already in motion.

Oath of Office is a political thriller with non-stop action, dramatic international settings, unexpected twists, and heart-pounding suspense.

Great start... but

Good story with lots of promise Out of the gates at a full gallop however, the author must have got bored as the last dozen chapters just slowed and then just stalled.

Very Good Book

I began this series because of other review comparing it to the Mitch Rapp series. While I don't feel it reaches that level of writing, I understand the comparisons. Based on the current books available in this category, Luke Stone definitely nears the top. Looking forward to the next one!

Solid espionage thriller!

The Luke Stone series has great potential. Luke Stone is not Mitch Rapp, Jack Mars is not Vince Flynn, and KC Kelly is not George Guidall, but they are almost as good. Oath of Office is a 5 star espionage thriller except for a flaw of having Luke Stone perform one literally impossible physical feat. My issue with Any Means Necessary, Book 1 of the Luke Stone series, is exactly the same. In that case he jumped five feet off a helicopter going 100 miles an hour onto the top of an SUV going 70 MPH and managed to hold on. In this book he does something even more impossible. Except for one scene in each book I would have rated both novels 5 stars.

Audible, when will you be releasing Situation Room, the next book in the Luke Stone series? It has been available in Kindle ebook format since late June of this year.

Backyard Threats

Ugly images of what could be in your own backyard when radical religious beliefs meet opportunity and get fueled by hate.

beter than book 1<br />

Book 2 held my interest and in my opine had more plot twists. I was skeptical after book 1 but the cliff hanger ending "forced" me to download book2. I will continue the series now. good read.

Good Series

Like Stone and crew their crusade against terrorism. Realistic scenarios, places and possibilities. I wish Jack Mars would have talk to some tactical professionals as Luke and Ed’s weapons don’t have the impact he describes. And FBI HRT really doesn’t use shotguns on entry or riot shields for a hard
hit. The story telling is really good and can be appreciated.

Entertaining, very fast-paced

Good guys kill lots of bad guys. Author has excellent language skills. Narrator was not overly dramatic, made it easy to keep the characters straight. Definitely a fun listen for people into this style.

Oath of Office by Jack Mars

This is a book that should give anyone pause. Very good. To think there people who are so full of hate. And also those like Luke. Thank-you. Worth reading.
