Pike Logan tracks highly-trained Russian assassins to Brazil in this blistering, action-packed thriller from New York Times bestselling author and former Special Forces Officer Brad Taylor.

“It’s an excellent read, and I greatly enjoyed it.” —Nelson DeMille

Pike Logan and the Taskforce were once the apex predators, an unrivaled hunting machine that decimated those out to harm the United States, but they may have met their match. While Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill prepare to join their team on a counter-terrorist mission in the triple frontier—the lawless tri-border region where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay meet—they are targeted in Charleston, South Carolina. A vicious explosion kills a friend, and the perpetrators have set it up to look like an accident. While the authorities believe this was not foul play, Pike knows the attack was meant for him.

When he loses contact with the team in South America, Pike is convinced he and the Taskforce are under assault. His men are the closest thing to family that Pike has, which means he will do anything, even ignore direct orders to stand down, to find them. Pike and Jennifer head to Brazil to investigate their disappearance and run headlong into a crew of Russian assassins. Within days they are entangled in a byzantine scheme involving Brazilian politics and a cut-throat battle for control of offshore oil fields.

Forged in combat, the Russians are the equal of anything the Taskforce has encountered before, but they make a mistake in attacking Pike’s team, because Pike has a couple of elite Israeli assassins of his own. And Pike will stop at nothing to protect his family.


  • Doesn’t really land

    I got all the way through the novel, but wish I would have given up after the first few chapters. Appreciate the author is trying to connect us to the characters but the attempt was pretty weak. One moral dilemma that kept getting rehashed every few chapters. Also the whole plot premise was extremely weak - no depth or barely any reason for all the violence and they never got at the source (eg who is paying the mercenaries to fight). Playing out the whole good guy doing bad things and wrestling with his conscience while being submarined by weak/corrupt politicians - seems very formulaic and in the end boring with nothing to sink your teeth into (plot or characters). Give this book a pass.

    Good read
  • Disappointed

    By HJH 1K
    Disappointing. Assassin gathers morally confused hit team as his “A” team, including a silly junior high schooler. Dumb.
  • Very exciting book a great read.

    Incredible action adventure thriller. Read it nonstop, couldn’t put it down. Really like the characters. My only wish is that he would write these books faster. They are addictive.
  • Confusing, Political, but Good Intrigue

    By Lakewaco
    A little confusing at times with multiple destinations and people. Hard to follow. Not as good as other Taskforce stories. Worth a read but don’t expect it to go as easily as previous books.
  • Awesome!!!

    This is my favorite in the series so far; building on the last book for added dimensions of stress in Logan’s life. The “family”- emphasis is half-“Lilo & Stitch”, half-“Godfather”, but it works in taking the Taskforce to a different place vs the oversight council. As usual, it’s nonstop action and suspense, and... well... I couldn’t put it down, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It can be read as a stand-alone, but... you’d miss knowing how the characters have developed. Highly recommended!
  • Magnificent

    Once again, Brad Taylor proves to be one of the best if not the best in the action-thriller genre, Hunter Killer is absolutely gripping and impossible to put down to once you begin. Bravo Brad Taylor, bravo.
