The first Pike Logan novel from New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor.

They call it the Taskforce. Commissioned at the highest level of the U.S. government. Protected from the prying eyes of Congress and the media. Designed to operate outside the bounds of U.S. law. Trained to exist on the ragged edge of human capability.

Pike Logan was the most successful operator on the Taskforce, his instincts and talents unrivaled—until personal tragedy permanently altered his outlook on the world. Pike knows what the rest of the country might not want to admit: The real threat isn’t from any nation, any government, any terrorist group. The real threat is one or two men, controlled by ideology, operating independently, in possession of a powerful weapon.

Buried in a stack of intercepted chatter is evidence of two such men. The transcripts are scheduled for analysis in three months. The attack is mere days away. It is their bad luck that they’re about to cross paths with Pike Logan. Because Pike Logan has nothing left to lose.

    Once you get past the cliche set up, this is a terrific page turner.
  • Very Good Read

    I bought this book because I was bored and needed something to read. I was pleasantly surprised when I read it. I was expecting something other than well written characters, events smoothly flowing from one to the next, and underdog villains trying to make a name for themselves and ending up going way over their heads. I also got a little bit of a shock when the main character’s real name was revealed! It was bonkers, but I loved it. The worst part of this book was the switching between first and third person. Fortunately the story and writing was strong enough so that the switches didn’t ruin the reading.
  • Very enjoyable read

    Awesome. Read it. Hard to put down.
  • Pretty good...

    By Longhorn5555
    Well written, and crisp action. The only reason I went with three stars is because at times the main character is a real terrorism specialist, yet at other times he acts like he has no idea that terrorism even exists... He has to practically get beat over the head with pretty obvious evidence... I do like it enough to move to the next book in the series...

    I don't know how it took me so long to discover Brad Taylor's Pike Logan series but I'm certainly a fan after reading One Rough Man. Realistic, Informative and entertaining. Looking forward to reading the entire series.

    Brad Taylor is a worthy successor to Vince Flynn, and Pike Logan the best character since Mitch Rapp. The fast-paced story keeps you turning pages and the three-dimensional characters that Taylor has crafted take on a life if their own as this altogether believable story unfolds. Taylor's real life experience in this world shines through in the realism if his imagery, narration, and dialog. This is a welcome jolt of real world adrenaline in a genre packed with wannabe "operators." Taylor's Pike Logan is the real thing.
