“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)

PRESIDENT ELECT is book #5 in the bestselling Luke Stone thriller series, which begins with ANY MEANS NECESSARY (book #1)!

When China threatens to bankrupt the U.S. by calling in its debt, Americans are desperate for radical change. President Susan Hopkins, running for re-election, is floored as she watches the returns come in. Her rival—a madman senator from West Virginia who ran on the promise to nuke China’s islands out of the South China Sea—has, inconceivably, won.

President Hopkins, though, knows she cannot yield power. To do so would be to spark World War III. She needs to prove the election was stolen, and to stop the looming war with China. With no one left to turn to, she summons Luke Stone, the former head of an elite FBI para-military team. The stakes could not be higher as she commands him to save America from its greatest threat: its own President Elect.

Yet as one shocking twist follows another, it may, even for Luke Stone, be too late.

A political thriller with non-stop action, dramatic international settings and heart-pounding suspense, PRESIDENT ELECT is book #5 in the bestselling and critically-acclaimed Luke Stone series, an explosive new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

“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)

Book #6 in the Luke Stone series—OUR SACRED HONOR—is now also available.


  • Blatant political propaganda

    By Silverdali
    Disappointed in the author as I buy his books and Luke Stone series are some of my favorites. But I did not pay for being brainwashed with the blatant left wing political propaganda. Waste of my money.

    By Ole Buzzard
    It is obvious that the author is very bias against President Trump and leans toward Hillary Rodham Clinton. I had enjoyed the previous Luke Stone books even thought there was quite a bit of repetition (cut and paste) in discussions of people and equipment. I don’t think I’ll purchase any more of this series unless the author admits that the basis of this book was an “alternate universe” scenerio where Hillary Clinton was the victor in her primary run against Obama and then in the general election against McCain in 2008 and that Obama took a more overt direction in his efforts to over turn the US Constitution and rule of law.

  • What happened??

    By Dennis, The
    This is a phenomenal series, but this one bit the dust. Obviously the "bad guy" in this book is a reference to Donald Trump. As someone who is not a fan of the President, I still found it ridiculous at the jabs you took at him though your book. I'm sure your fan base is full of fun-loving conservatives, so I think you made a bad move here. We lost, let's deal with it and hope he can come through on helping our country, instead of hoping he fails, because then we as a country fail.

    I have to say this is one of the best books I have read, and I read quite a lot. Love all Jack Mars' books. Can't get enough. Am looking forward to the next one.
