(The first book in the Luke Stone series)
A novel by

 
 
Luke Stone, former special-forces commando and head of an elite, secret FBI department, is summoned when jihadists steal nuclear waste from a New York City hospital. Their target is shocking, and Luke has 48 hours to stop them. But the conspiracy may run deeper than even Luke can predict….

The #1 bestselling and USA-Today bestselling series, with over 2,000 five-star 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, Diane Donovan (regarding Any Means Necessary)

As Luke 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.

A cat and mouse chase follows, pitting the world’s most savvy government agents versus its most sophisticated terrorists.

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 of spy novels that will leave you turning pages late into the night. Fans of Vince Flynn books or the Mitch Rapp series are sure to fall in love!

Books #2–7 in the Luke Stone series are also now available, as are books #1--#6 in the Forging of Luke Stone series! (Complete series order below.)

“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)
