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.


  • 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.

    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.

    Brad Taylor does it again! I truly enjoy reading the Pike Logan stories, and this one has you wanting to skip to the end. A great thriller that once you start reading, you don't want to stop!

  • Engrossing / pulls you in / makes you feel the story's emotion / Fantastic

    By dieselrm
    When I read the book I know that the writer has succeeded and I feel emotions not just of the story of the characters. Here the author not only delivered the emotions is writing but I'm pretty sure while reading it but I was in the room with the characters in the story with the men and women. I commit myself to every Book I start to read if I start it I must finish it. This author made me wish the book would never end. Thank.

    Good read. Started out confusing with so many tangent stories but the writer pulled them together... I wondered how or if he could and he did.

    Brad Taylor never disappoints me. His description of locales are always very good without consuming half the book. I also appreciate his weapon description without giving me a half page history of the weapon. He keeps the storyline moving. I look forward to his next book.
