“Chillingly written…One thing is certain, the author has a massive heart. J.T. is addicted to the rush of writing that his passionate soul is drawn to…and has managed among all the machinations in the world of espionage, black ops, war games, the CIA, to get one to care about what happens in the life of Sean Havens.”
-Best Selling Crime Thrillers Review Rating 4 stars!
WARNING: J.T. Patten is one of those guys who has been there and done that, and Primed Charge is his blood spattered T-shirt. This is a det cord burning, C-4 blasting, hollow point to the cranial vault kind of thriller. So if you are looking for something cute to take to your book club, I suggest you cross the street, and avoid eye contact when you see Primed Charge coming. But if you are looking for a book that will have you stuffing a loaded .45 under your pillow, give it a read.
-Josh Hood, Bestselling author, Clear by Fire, former 82nd Airborne
“SAFE HAVENS: Primed Charge cements J.T. Patten’s seat with today’s top thriller authors. In Patten’s latest black ops novel, he continues to demonstrate his knowledge of the shadow world and an ability to craft a heartfelt story of warriors, their families, and global threats.”
-Bob Mayer, NY Times Bestselling author, publisher, former Green Beret
“J.T. Patten has walked the walk and it shows in his newest novel, Primed Charge. The book starts with a bang and never lets up. But its the little things that make the read so enjoyable from the spot on gear to perfect lingo. With each turn of the page, I had to–again–remind myself the story was fiction.”
-Kevin Maurer, award-winning journalist and best selling co-author of No Easy Day, a first hand account of the raid to kill Osama bin Laden
