Book 7, A Pike Logan Thriller - A Pike Logan Thriller

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 20, 2014 – In Taylor's edge-of-your-seat seventh Pike Logan thriller (after Days of Rage), the head of the top-secret counterterrorism unit known as the Taskforce, Col. Kurt Hale, orders Pike and fellow operative Jennifer Cahill to locate his niece, Kylie, a University of Virginia student on exchange to Cambridge University. Terrorists have kidnapped Kylie along with several other family members of key U.S. government officials and are holding them for ransom somewhere in Europe. Essentially fired from Taskforce for disobeying orders in Days of Rage, Logan must find Kylie with no support other than Cahill's and very little to go on. The stakes rise when they discover that one of the kidnap victims is the American vice president's son who was working at a NATO intelligence center in England and that the terrorists may be planning something much more nefarious than a simple hostage exchange. The nonstop action, intricate story line, and jaw-dropping plot twists all but make up for the lack of character development.

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.

Best Yet

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.
