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.

    I needed a new series to read and love characters like Mitch Rapp and John Corey. I saw a posting on social media from Nelson DeMille about Brad’s books and downloaded immediately. I’m totally hooked!

    Got started reading Jack Carr but then got introduced to Brad Taylor. Pike Logan would smack James Reese. Obviously joking, but all in all absolute home run. Im hooked.

    An excellent read! It grabs you and leaves you wanting more when it’s finished. Then you realize it’s 3:30 AM and you have to be at work by 8:00…

    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
