There’s much to like about this rollicking read.

An ‘off the books’ team of counter-terrorists led by a wrecking ball of a leader in Pike Logan are forced into action. An opposing force that is its equal in many respects, and is bereft of any morality (or scruples) make for  a heady cocktail.

Adding in a country-hopping road trip, not a little tekkie stuff, and enough gun-play and mayhem to satisfy the most ardent of techno-thriller readers and you have an enjoyable and fast-paced tale.

The Russian opposing force start by trying to assassinate Logan and target him at home in South Carolina, where he is preparing for a job in South America. Logan’s team is under threat, and as his colleagues are like family to him, the touch paper is lit. He loses contact with some members of his team (already in South America). Heading to Brazil with his partner, Jennifer, Pike Logan is unknowingly heading into a nest of well-trained and motivated Russian assassins.

There are echoes of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six and Hendley Associates in Logan’s Taskforce; but don’t let that detract from what is a well-paced and enjoyable read. Brad Taylor knows his stuff and Pike Logan is no one-dimensional trigger puller.
