Description
The electrifying Pike Logan series continues as the Taskforce—a top secret team that exists outside the bounds of U.S. law—races to stop a terrorist hit....

A shadowy trail leads the Taskforce to Egypt—where an attack leaves one member dead and another barely alive. Veteran warrior Pike Logan and his young partner, Jennifer Cahill, are forced to helm the increasingly convoluted and dangerous mission: a mission that tests both Jennifer's ability to justify her actions, and Pike's tenuous ability to stay in control.
Sifting their way through the opposing plots of two terrorist organizations will turn out to be the least of their problems when a weapon of unthinkable power touches American soil—the only country in which Taskforce members are forbidden to operate, and the only country that Pike Logan may be unable to save....

        November 7, 2011
        In Taylor’s exciting second Pike Logan thriller (after 2011’s One Rough Man), Pike, who’s been mustered out as the leader of Taskforce, a secret unit authorized by the U.S. president to target terrorists, heads a civilian business designed to assist Taskforce activities worldwide. When U.S. intelligence operations pick up Internet chatter indicating that an attack on American soil is imminent, Pike gets back in the game. He turns for help to Jennifer Cahill, his girlfriend and business partner, who saved his life in the last book and under his tutelage tried out for Taskforce. The supporting cast includes such familiar types as the well-meaning president, the government traitor, the craven high-level government adviser, and an assortment of Middle Eastern terrorists, this time aided by Americans recruited from prisons. While some readers may find the terrorists’ U.S. targets insufficiently important, the high violence level and authentic military action put Taylor, a retired Delta Force officer, solidly in the ranks of such authors as Brad Thor and Vince Flynn.

        Starred review from December 1, 2011
        Terrorists plan to strike America with a vicious blow, and it's Pike Logan's job to stop them. This fast-moving thriller poses the dilemma: Must he obey the law, or must he use all necessary force to thwart the enemy? In the second book in Taylor's series (One Rough Man, 2011), Logan is part of the top-secret Taskforce set up to handle asymmetric threats to the United States. Muslim terrorists plan an attack on the Great Satan's power grid, and they set out to kill anyone who is remotely in their way. Logan is no pansy himself as he terminates his share of bad guys. Also he encourages Jennifer Cahill to earn a place on Taskforce, to the chagrin of his chauvinistic colleagues. Cahill proves as tough as any man, and she has a conscience too: you can get her to kill, but you can't make her like it. As the story veers back and forth between the terrorists and the Taskforce, the weight of saving America from disaster falls squarely on Logan and his team--can they stop the impending simultaneous attacks on nuclear power plants? It's a simple post–Cold War scenario: The black ex-convict finds Mohammed in prison and wages jihad against America. Meanwhile, the hero breaks all the rules, because that's what heroes do. Logan angers some of his superiors because of actions that could land him in prison, even though the whole concept of Taskforce is that it's supposed to be extralegal. Whose side will President Warren take in this dispute? What makes the story even more interesting is the moral component Cahill adds, forcing Logan to examine his conscience as they both do what they must to protect the rest of us. Well written, edgy and a damn good yarn.

        The terrorists are coming, but nobody knows where they'll hit or when. It's up to TaskForce, which operates outside the law, to track down clues. After an attack in Egypt, Taylor hero Pike Logan ends up in charge with partner Jennifer Cahill, who's worried about the legality of their mission. They'll still triumph. Retired Delta Force officer Taylor had a big hit with his first Pike Logan work, One Rough Man, and has since been speaking up on Fox News, MSNBC, and elsewhere, so expect interest.

        Taylor's follow up to One Rough Man (2011) continues the adventures of Pike Logan in another gritty look at a Special Forces team. Logan, the leader of a counter-terrorist organization that routinely skirts the law, takes college student Jennifer Cahill under his wing, and she begins the grueling training to become an operative. It's not pretty, and she struggles to maintain her sanity while battling sexism in her unit. Then what seems like a minor mission to get Cahill's feet wet turns out to be more sinister. During the Vietnam War, a soldier took incriminating photos of a spy working with the Soviets. That spy is now a U.S. congressman. When the missing camera shows up, the spy will do anything to keep his participation a secret. Fans of military thrillers will enjoy the look into how men in uniform fight for our freedom. Readers will want to hear more of Logan and Cahill.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2012, American Library Association.)
