On-the-run ex-agent Peri Reed returns bigger and bolder than ever in this second highly-anticipated installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison's new suspense trilogy, The Peri Reed Chronicles.
Peri Reed’s job eats her mind, but for a special task agent in hiding, forgetting the past can be a blessing.
Betrayed by the man she thought she loved and the agency who turned her into the very thing she fought against, Peri abandoned the wealth and privilege of Opti for anonymity riddled with memory gaps and self-doubt. But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who’d use her as a tool for their own success, she must choose to remain broken and vulnerable, or return to the above-the-law power and prestige she once left: strong but without will—for whoever holds her next fix, will hold her loyalty.
Yet even now as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life.
I’m really enjoying this new series by Kim Harrison. I absolutely loved The Drafter and expected very good things from The Operator. Glad to say that those expectations were met.
It’s always a bit of a wild ride with Peri. All she wants to do is live a quiet life without being used and controlled, but she’s hot commodity, baby. Even though it’s more clear on who the villains are now, there’s still plenty of betrayal and deceit to go around. It’s a chess game where Peri had to outwit and outplay in order to survive. It’s totally engrossing and kept me on my toes!
I continue to love Peri! She has attitude and grit that I’m always happy to see in a strong heroine. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t have her struggles and vulnerabilities, especially with the stakes so high this time. The other characters – new and old – are great too! I adore LB and can’t wait to see more of him and his gang. Harmony is also a fantastic addition. I love the dynamic Peri developed with both of them.
There isn’t really anything I don’t like about The Operator. It’s a fun, exciting, and well thought out sequel that left me eager for more.
