I persevered right to the end where quite possibly the worst incompetence and the most unbelievably lucky set of circumstances, brought the story to an end.
Sorry! Pike is not for me, I'm afraid.
Again reading one of the many authors who specialise in these great books.
Brad Taylor, is the right man to write this type of books, why you ask?
He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Infantry. Brad served for more than 21 years, retiring as a Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel. During that time he held numerous Infantry and Special Forces positions, including eight years in 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment – Delta where he commanded multiple troops and a squadron. He has conducted operations in support of US national interests in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other classified locations.
The first Pike Logan novel from New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor.
They call it the Taskforce. Commissioned at the highest level of the U.S. government. Protected from the prying eyes of Congress and the media. Designed to operate outside the bounds of U.S. law. Trained to exist on the ragged edge of human capability.
Pike Logan was the most successful operator on the Taskforce, his instincts and talents unrivaled—until personal tragedy permanently altered his outlook on the world. Pike knows what the rest of the country might not want to admit: The real threat isn't from any nation, any government, any terrorist group. The real threat is one or two men, controlled by ideology, operating independently, in possession of a powerful weapon.
Buried in a stack of intercepted chatter is evidence of two such men. The transcripts are scheduled for analysis in three months. The attack is mere days away. It is their bad luck that they're about to cross paths with Pike Logan. Because Pike Logan has nothing left to lose.
In this book we follow Pike across Central America, Norway, Bosnia as well as America. Along with Pike is a great character Jennifer Cahill, who really add to the story as well as adding humour to the fast paced, action story.
Pike Logan is a tough, appealing hero and I look forward to reading more. Just maybe one star below Brad Thor , Ben Coes and Tom Wood.
But a strong four star.
After a tragic personal loss, “Pike” Logan leaves the special black ops unit he is in and starts to wallow in self-pity. A chance encounter forces himself to get involved once again, and he ends up chasing terrorists around the globe while avoiding a kill squad that has been put on his tail.
Nothing original here and it does read like a first book and normally I would probably not bother with the rest of the series, but having been told that it gets much, much, better as the author grows in confidence I think I will continue with this series.
