Description

In this heart-stopping thriller from New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor, Pike Logan returns with his most dangerous and personal threat yet: a Taskforce Operator gone rogue.

For years, the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce has worked in the shadows, anticipating and preventing attacks around the globe. Created to deal with a terrorist threat that shuns the civilized rule of law, it abandoned the same, operating outside of the US Constitution. Though wildly successful, it was rooted in a fear that the cure could be worse than the disease. 
 
And now that fear has come home. 
 
A Special Forces soldier is killed on an operation in Afghanistan, and complicit in the attack is a government official of an allied nation. While the US administration wants to forget the casualty, one Taskforce member will not. When he sets out to avenge his brother's death, his actions threaten to not only expose the Taskforce's activities, but also destroy a web of alliances against a greater evil. Pike Logan understands the desire, but also the danger. Brought in to eliminate the risk, he's now forced to choose between his friend and the administration he's sworn to protect, while unbeknownst to either of them, the soldier's death is only the beginning...

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 26, 2015 – Complicated character motivation muddles bestseller Taylor's unusually introspective ninth Pike Logan thriller (after The Insider Threat). When Sgt. First Class Timothy George dies in an ambush while on a mission in Afghanistan, Guy George, his brother and a member of Taskforce, vows to go after Timothy's probable killers, identifiable in four photos inside an arm-band Timothy was wearing when his body was recovered. These four were the terrorists Timothy was targeting, but they apparently got him first. Since Taskforce won't support Guy for political reasons, he goes off-reservation for his own personal vendetta. When Guy begins killing, Pike must try to stop him using any means. Pike has mixed feelings about his assignment, since he can understand the reasons for both Guy's and Taskforce's actions, and readers will wonder where his sympathies really lie. The result of this ambiguity is a less rousing, more downbeat outing for Pike and company.

HI

Brother actually lived but finder of brother died

It was ok....

Typical, no surprises, same rhetoric, predictable

A bit slow

Not up to his usual standard. I found that dragged, then lots of action for about 30 pages. Good, but lacking.
