A hostage situation places America’s most powerful political elite at the mercy of its worst enemies in this Pike Logan thriller from New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor.

When veteran operator Pike Logan and partner Jennifer Cahill receive a letter from the umbrella cover company for their real employer, a top secret counterterrorist unit called the Taskforce—they expect orders for their next mission. Instead, they learn that their latest actions have gotten them fired, despite having saved thousands of innocent lives.

Pike’s shock and fury is redirected when their commander, Colonel Kurt Hale, asks him and Jennifer for help with a personal matter: His niece Kylie, an exchange student in England, has gone missing. Neither Pike nor Jennifer understands how critical her disappearance will become.

Meanwhile, all Taskforce teams have been redirected to a developing situation. A terrorist organization has targeted military relatives of key members of the US government, including the vice president’s son. Now they’re faced with a terrible choice: cease counter-terrorist operations, or watch hostages die one by one.

How much is a single life worth? Unless the Taskforce can decipher the web of lies devised by their enemies, the United States is about to find out.

    I liked the unexpected twists and turns of this one. Pike and Jennifer were their usual except there were advancements in both characters. Kurt was brought in more too. And the surprise at the end. I have a daughter who means the world to me. Kylie’s ordeal hit home.
  • Fast paced

    Oh. Emm. GEEEE! This is possibly THE most fun, thrilling, and rewarding novel I have ever read! The last 1/4 of the book gave me the most thrilling, white knuckle ride ever from reading a novel. And the ending! Lol 😂 Bravo Mr. Taylor 🙌🏻👏🏻
  • Lots of talking

  • Solid Action

    This is my first Brad Taylor book, and I’m enjoying it. Doesn’t have the pace or edge-of-your-seat plot that marks a Lee Child or Michael Connelly novel, but I’ve read everything by my favoties, and the Pike Logan series will be a good way to keep reading between Reacher and Bosch editions.

    This was far and away my favorite book in the Pike Logan series, so far. A real page-turner with non-stop action and better than usual character development.
  • Thrilling to the bone
