Primed, by acclaimed thriller-writer Eric J. Gates, is the long-awaited sequel to Outsourced, the first novel in the series. It again features the much-loved agent Major Bridget Mason and the two writers Beasley and Stiles.
Primed has Mason teamed up with a new character, The Great Dane, who is reminiscent of a foreign Dirty Harry, but without the penchant for drawing his weapon.
They make a fascinating partnership and their interplay was the highlight of the story for me.
The Pen also comes into the storyline again, but does not play such a big role as the various Russians who are operating on the right and wrong side of the (Russian) law on America’s West Coast.
I am confident that you will be enthralled by Primed and that you will find that it ends too soon, as I did.
I have no hesitation in recommending Gates’ latest masterpiece, Primed and give it five out of five stars – a definite buy!
