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.

Tests rather than captures the imagination

In a world of inept leaders who fail to see trouble that is plainly apparent to readers, only Luke Stone is able to deal with every threat. Yet he spends most of his time agonizing about his own common issues. Writing and narration are okay, but unlikeable and underdeveloped characters make the book kind of boring.

Ok but not well developed

I got this book based on my suggestions for reading from audible. The story was OK but pretty thin in detail and character development. Even the story development was pretty weak. Not bad enough to return it and get my money back but I'd wait till it was on the discount rack.

Over The Top

We expect to suspend elements of reality when we read fiction but when nothing is solid or based in reality, it becomes too difficult to connect with the characters, story or plot. Instead the reader or listener will find themselves noting inconsistencies and flaws. It really is a shame because the story has potential it just isn't told very well. The overall recipe for this story is the same as book 1. Luke is trying to leave the group, he gets pulled in, his family suffers for it and he has to choose between them and saving the world. He is the only one the president trusts, yet he gets fired and then rehired ... Meanwhile Luke is racing around doing the impossible with his wounded friend.

Good Book. Great Narrator.

Ok let's start with this. So many are trying to compare everyone's books to Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn. There will never be a replacement so comparing apples to apples is not fair to this author. I started at book 2 because it showed up as a suggested read. I enjoyed the book, I thought it was a little short but still it was good. The storyline was believable given all the other things we read and hear in this world. I think the narrator was great. Actually I think this narrator gave the best performance of any of the books I've listened to yet. So do yourself a favor. Understand that no two people write the same. I think you'll enjoy this book if you open your mind.

A great read.<br /><br />

I enjoyed listening to this book. Had no trouble following the story line. The narrator did a good job.
