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.

Why did I add The Operator to my bookshelf?

I downloaded this book from NetGalley back in 2016. I read the first book in the series and liked it although I didn’t love it. I just didn’t feel motivated to pick up the next book in the series right away. Somehow 5 years have passed and I still haven’t picked it up. I really like the concept behind this series and do look forward to finally seeing what happens next to Peri. Plus it will be really nice to scratch one of the older books off my NetGalley tbr.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. I just went through my old NGs and really wasn’t drawn to any of the unread books. It’s a win-win if you end up liking the book


    I haven’t read this book but I have liked other books she’s written

  3. I remember thinking this series sounded good, too. Oh man, I’ve got a few like that where I’m just not motivated enough to grab up the next book. But, maybe getting it off the NetGalley pile will help. 🙂

  4. It is so easy to get behind on those Netgalley reads, I just got caught up fully so I feel ya (I had reads from seven years ago *gasp* Its the worst) But I really hope this one ends up working out for you.
