Pike Logan tracks down a human trafficking ring on his home turf in the latest novella from New York Times bestselling author and former Special Forces Officer Brad Taylor, featuring an excerpt from his electrifying new novel, Hunter Killer.
Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are no strangers to international conflict, but this time the threat they’re facing lies closer to home. Amena, the young Syrian refugee they have taken into their care, is having trouble settling into her new life in Charleston, SC. Unfamiliar with the city and unsure how much she can trust Pike and Jennifer, she befriends a girl and her Serbian guardian on the streets of Charleston, a relationship that causes an argument with Pike. Angered at his rebuke and believing he’s insincere, she runs away from her new home.
Pike, wild with worry over Amena’s disappearance, makes it his mission to bring her home safely. In the process, he discovers the staggering truth about Amena’s Serbian friend: he is a human trafficker, and Amena is in much more danger than she realizes. To make matters worse, classified nuclear information may also be on the line. While Pike is on the warpath, Amena learns of the Serbian’s true nature, and the terrible ‘exit fee’ he exacts from the girls who don’t play by his rules. Still unsure whom she can trust, Amena believes she can help her friend and save herself all on her own. But the risk—and the cost—will be much higher than she imagines.
