Let me tell what you makes JT Patten’s Safe Havens series and his latest, Primed Charge, different than many books in the thriller genre. It isn’t hi..Show More »s deep knowledge of black operations. Or details on weapons. Or the interaction of the numerous special operations groups, systems, and tactics. Or his adroit weaving of international issues into a contemporary action thriller.
What makes Primed Charge different is JT’s relentless reminder that the characters living in his world are just people. They are people with families, imperfections, worries, and hopes. People are the mortar holding all the weapons, operations, issues, and groups together. I appreciate a thriller that is more than thrilling. I appreciate his willingness to remind us we are not protected by superhuman beings—we are protected by dedicated members of our family.
Primed Charge is a refreshing combination of action and humanity.
