Description

"Few authors write about espionage, terrorism, and clandestine hit squads as well as Taylor does."Houston Press

Pike Logan is on the desperate hunt for a man who is about to betray his country—and ignite a horrific new world war—in this pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times bestselling author and former special forces officer Brad Taylor

Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are enjoying a sunny vacation down under when they get disturbing news: their friend and colleague Clifford Delmonty is in serious trouble. While working as a contractor at an Australian F-35 facility, the former Taskforce member—callsign Dunkin—saw something he shouldn't have, and now he's on the run from Chinese agents.

Pike and Jennifer soon discover that Dunkin's attackers are a dangerous link to a much larger scheme that could launch a full-on conflict between China and Taiwan. In its quest for dominance, China is determined to reclaim Taiwan—a pivotal ally the United States has sworn to protect. Pike learns that the Chinese have a devious plan to bait the island nation into all-out war by destabilizing the government and manipulating an artificial intelligence defense system.

As the threat reaches a boiling point, Pike alone realizes that what they're seeing isn't actually real. A soldier who has always been trained to fight and win, Pike must now track down and neutralize the missing man who holds the key. With the help of Jennifer, the Taskforce team, and a brave Taiwanese intelligence agent, he races to prevent a catastrophic conflict from consuming a whole region of the world.

        "American Traitor is frighteningly realistic and will cause a lot of sleepless nights in Washington. Brad Taylor is the best action writer in the business today, and Pike Logan is the right hero for our time." — William H. McRaven, Adm, U.S. Navy (Ret.) and author of Make Your Bed

        "It is [Taylor's] remarkable character work with a robust and memorable cast that is the true strength of the novel. The camaraderie of the battle-hardened operators..., their staunch loyalty... and their stalwart sense of shared duty ultimately make for a big-hearted novel, even amid its many pulse-pounding moments." — Charleston Post & Courier

        "Taylor, who relies on his own elite experience in the Special Forces for both detail and authenticity, has never been better, and neither has his literary doppelganger, Pike Logan." — Providence Journal

        "A memorable cast, powerful action scenes, and authentic tradecraft... Taylor reinforces his place as a major player in the military action genre." — Publishers Weekly

        "Taylor, a retired Special Forces lieutenant colonel, has a good grasp of the geopolitical backdrop of his stories, and this knowledge gives his books a solid layer of plausibility. The high-energy writing also helps sell the story and characters. This is a series that has earned its popularity." — Booklist

        "Lose yourself in American Traitor and find yourself remembering what makes this country so great." — Veteran News Reporter

        "Another solid Pike Logan novel that is all action from the time they get down under." — Red Carpet Crash

        "Brad Taylor knows his stuff. His new Pike Logan novel, Hunter Killer, has the gun metal ring of authenticity and the crisp writing of a military communique... It makes you pause and think while you're being thoroughly and rapidly entertained. It's an excellent read, and I greatly enjoyed it." — Nelson DeMille

        "Brad Taylor continues to dominate the military thriller genre, and it's not close." — The Real Book Spy

        "Taylor continues to tell flawless stories with his stellar cast of characters... It's amazing that after so many novels Taylor can still maintain the high-level quality and breathless action readers expect, while also getting better with each tale." — Booklist (starred review)

        "Taylor brings an unquestionable level of authenticity to his Pike Logan series... Throw in some former Israeli Mossad agents and the cast of elite operators along with the level of bone-crushing violence is almost overflowing. A surefire hit for those who like contemporary foreign affairs spiced heavily with page-turning action." — Kirkus Reviews

        "A blistering, explosive read... Hunter Killer is one of the best in the series to date... An intriguing tale, full of twists, turns, explosions and fisticuffs. By the book's conclusion, you will be wondering why all thrillers can't be this good." — Bookreporter.com

        " A car bomb meant for Pike [sets] the enraged Pike off on an unauthorized mission of vengeance... Aaron and Shoshana Bergman... raise the excitement level as they wreak havoc. A big surprise on the last page will please series fans." — Publishers Weekly

        "In what can only be described as Brad Taylor's best novel to date, Hunter Killer has upped the stakes...With non-stop action, a driven plot, politics, and death, Brad Taylor has delivered a must-read Pike Logan novel that will be one...

        November 2, 2020
        Bestseller Taylor’s taut 15th Pike Logan novel (after 2020’s Hunter Killer) takes Pike, the head of the Taskforce counterterrorism unit, and his Taskforce member girlfriend, Jennifer Cahill, to Australia for some vacation. They intend to stay with former Taskforce colleague Dunkin Delmonty, but on arrival they find Dunkin on the run from Chinese assassins. Dunkin recently exposed the schemes of his coworker, a Chinese-American artificial-intelligence specialist, who sabotaged the software of the new F-35 fighter jet and stole the code for the early-warning system protecting Taiwan from Chinese invasion. The attack on Dunkin prompts Pike to call in his Taskforce unit and team with a former Taiwan intelligence agent to stop a war between the beleaguered island nation and the despotic Chinese government. A memorable cast, powerful action scenes, and authentic tradecraft compensate for blandly generic settings, with neither Australia nor Taiwan brought much to life. Series fans will appreciate the continuing evolution of the characters and the customary attention to tactical detail. Taylor reinforces his place as a major player in the military action genre. Agent: John Talbot, Talbot Fortune.

        The title gives a bit of the plot away, but the latest Pike Logan thriller is still a solid suspenser. Task-force operative Logan and his partner, Jennifer Cahill, are thrust into an escalating conflict between China and Taiwan. But there are other forces at work and even greater threats: Taiwan is under the protection of the U.S., suggesting that a third party may be manipulating the Americans and Chinese to go head-to-head in a global shootout. As usual, it falls to Logan to bring order to the chaos. The Logan novels (this is the fifteenth in the series) sometimes balance on the line between realism and fantasy--could one man, working virtually alone, really accomplish all the things Pike has?--but Taylor, a retired Special Forces lieutenant colonel, has a good grasp of the geopolitical backdrop of his stories, and this knowledge gives his books a solid layer of plausibility. The high-energy writing also helps sell the story and characters. This is a series that has earned its popularity, and American Traitor should generate a lot of interest among Taylor's many fans.
