Description

A New York Times Bestseller!

In the latest explosive thriller from New York Times bestselling author and former special forces officer Brad Taylor, Pike Logan races to stop an insidious attack orchestrated by a man who knows America’s most treasured secrets.

Conducting a routine cover development trip to Tajikistan, Pike and Jennifer learn that Afghanistan has fallen, and there’s a man on the run. One that has done more for the United States in Afghanistan than anyone else. Pulled in to extract him, Pike collides headlong into a broader mystery: his covert company, along with every other entity in the Taskforce, has been hit with a ransomware attack, and there’s some connection between the Taliban and the hack. 

Given the order to track down the perpetrators, he has no idea that the problem set is much, much larger and more dangerous than a simple attack on his organization. That hack was just a test-run, and the real one is coming soon, engendered by a former NSA specialist in the U.S. government. 

A man who wants to return to the bipolar world of the Cold War, the turncoat has cloaked his attack behind hackers from Serbia and Russia, and if successful, his target will alter the balance of power on the global stage. So far, the specialist has remained one step ahead of the Taskforce, but he has just made one massive mistake: hitting Pike Logan.

    So boring and formulaic I couldn’t even stand to finish it. The last few in the Pike Logan series have been much of the same tedious formulaic bollocks. Such a shame when they were such good reads in the beginning of the series.
  • Great Read

    Telling a story from multiple characters point of view is a great way to fill pages. If used correctly it can be an effective writing tool. Not the case in this book.

    Pike Logan and his team are trying to stop an incident involving a civilian space ship from crashing into a space station. This individual is a highly coveted and respected NSA specialist who now owns his own tech firm. He wants to create a scenario like 911, Twin Towers which he feels will cause Americans to rally toward the defense of America. An excellent read in this series. Enjoyed immensely!!

    I have followed the Pike Logan franchise and this was like Brad Taylor lost his ability to write….confusing, hard to follow, etc….just really bad. Can I have my money back?
