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.

One Rough Man
Great Storyline about Special Ops missions. Right words, right bad guys and right good guys. They're human, focused and flawed.
Pike is the best and falls from the top. Written off by everyone, he can't get better because he blames himself for his family's murder. He's spiraled to the bottom as an angry drunk. A chance encounter becomes the mission of his life.
A graduate student steps in to protect Pike from a beating. Her uncle discovers an ancient poison and Islamic terrorists want it. Suddenly Pike finds himself protecting the beautiful student when hired guns think she has the poison. From Guatamala to Belize to DC to Bosnia, She and Pike seek the truth and discover a terrorist cell bent on unleashing a WMD. The US govt doesn't believe it and Pike is on his own to prevent a third world war. While they chase the terrorists, someone is chasing them and intent on only one thing--their destruction.
Non-stop action that only a former operator can describe. You'll find yourself looking up the names of the weapons and hurrying back to read what's next. This is the only book I've ever read that I put down just to imagine what I just read. It's a great read.
Not bad debut, but far from great.
Slow start and at times the plot line becomes B.S. even for a fiction book. However, not bad to put in your rotation. He is not Flynn, Thor, or Coonts but it is an interesting read. Give it a try.
