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.
Fast-paced with twists around every corner and with a lot of witty banter, The Operator was a great and worthy sequel to the Drafter.
It’s been a year after The Drafter ended where Peri is trying to have a somewhat normal life owning a coffee shop. But of course this doesn’t last very long.
I felt like things turned up a notch in this book. Both Bill and the CIA are after Peri, wanting to use her for her abilities. Meanwhile she’s still trying to work through everything she was forced to forget. But the stakes are higher than eever when she is forced to get addicted to a drug called Evocane.
A lot fo characters we already met in the first book made appearances like Jack, Allen, Bill and Silas. But also new characters like Harmony. I loved her and Peri working together.
Overall, this was a thrilling book in the Peri Reed chornicles. I loved very single page.

I haven't read this series, but I do love Kim Harrison, I'll have to check this out!
How have I missed this series! It sounds pretty amazing. Great review.
It was! Also posting this review made me realize the third book never got published. #sad
It's a little different from the Hollows series but also amazing!
There's only two books… I thought there would be at least three but it seems like the third never got published or something.
Yay glad you enjoyed 🙂
This sounds pretty darn good.
Sounds like a good thriller, I'm always a sucker for the CIA/ gov't agency after someone. 🙂
I didn't know Kim Harrison was a Michigan author (I live in Michigan). Cool!
Oh, this sounds SO exciting, Steph! I like the SF angle, plus the fact that Peri sure seems to be a strong female protagonist, in spite of her self-doubts. And it's obviously action-packed! I'm adding this one to my Goodreads shelves for sure!!
Thanks for sharing!! HUGS!! <3 <3 <3 🙂 🙂 🙂
