Description
**A New York Times Bestseller**

Former Special Forces Officer and New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor delivers a heart-pounding thriller featuring Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill as they come face to face with a conspiracy where nothing is as it seems.


Hot on the trail of a North Korean looking to sell sensitive US intelligence to the Syrian regime, Pike Logan and the Taskforce stumble upon something much graver: the sale of a lethal substance called Red Mercury.

Unbeknownst to the Taskforce, the Syrians plan to use the weapon of mass destruction against American and Kurdish forces, and blame the attack on terrorists, causing western nations to reassess their participation in the murky cauldron of the Syrian civil war.

Meanwhile, North Korea has its own devastating agenda: a double-cross that will dwarf the attack in Syria even as it lays the blame on the Syrian government. Leveraging Switzerland's fame for secrecy and its vast network of military bunkers, now repurposed by private investors for the clandestine storage of wealth, North Korea will use Red Mercury to devastate the West's ability to deliver further sanctions against the rogue regime.

As the Taskforce begins to unravel the plot, a young refugee unwittingly holds the key to the conspiracy. Hunted across Europe for reasons she cannot fathom, she is the one person who can stop the attack—if she can live long enough for Pike and Jennifer to find her.

        October 22, 2018
        Bestseller Taylor’s meticulously plotted 13th Pike Logan thriller (after 2017’s Operator Down) supplements the derring-do of Pike and the other Taskforce counterterrorism agents with the story of Amena, a 13-year-old Syrian refugee. Amena has landed with her family in Monaco, where she and her younger brother steal valuables from tourists to survive. But when they steal an iPhone from a Syrian intelligence agent, they find themselves in big trouble. The phone contains information about a Syrian plan to use a North Korean biological agent known as Red Mercury, a deadly poison that kills then renders itself safe and untraceable, on an American Special Forces outpost. Pike and his team are in Monaco on a separate mission when they stumble on the Red Mercury plot. Soon Amena is fleeing from the Russians, the Syrians, and the North Koreans, all of whom want the phone. Pike and his fellow agent/love interest, Jennifer Cahill, display their usual resourcefulness, but it’s the plight of Amena that makes this entry particularly gripping. Agent: John Talbot, Talbot Fortune.

        An elite U.S. task force tries to prevent North Korea from selling lethal chemical weapons to the Syrian regimeA retired lieutenant colonel whose service included time in special operations with the legendary Delta Force, Taylor (Operator Down, 2018, etc.) clearly has the qualifications to provide a military thriller with realistic details, and he does just that in this latest addition to the Pike Logan series. In this outing, Logan and his team are in Monaco on the trail of what they presume to be a plan by North Korea to sell the Syrians Chinese-hacked data containing the identities of U.S. government employees with security clearances. The assignment becomes convoluted when it turns out that, in fact, North Korea is selling Syria something called Red Mercury, a deadly chemical compound which is both mythical and mysterious. This increasingly intricate mission becomes downright explosive when a Syrian refugee street urchin pickpockets an iPhone X containing data crucial to the pending deal between the Syrians and North Koreans. Logan's team will have to find the phone before a Russian mercenary/mixed martial arts fighter who will stop at nothing to get it back, including killing anyone who gets in his way. Now, throw in a pencil-pushing CIA case officer who makes questionable decisions in handling a crucial Syrian asset along with all the petty personal politics so prevalent even at the highest levels of government and you have the makings of a fast-paced thriller.A believable story with the kind of interesting details that keep the pages turning.

        Starred review from November 15, 2018
        Taylor's latest Taskforce novel finds Pike Logan, Jennifer Cahill, and their team trying to stop the sale of a deadly nerve agent. The lethal substance is rumored to be Red Mercury, a gas so horrible that it has achieved a near-mythical status, though nobody in the intelligence community truly believes it can actually be manufactured. Has North Korea found a way to do the seemingly impossible? The sale hits a snag when a young woman who steals to survive takes the wrong man's cell phone. With the entire operation laid out in detail on the device, an order is given to find the thief and kill her and anyone else who might have seen the material. Double crosses and a bold plot to start WWIII all hinge on whether Logan and his team can get to the woman first. Taylor has already established himself as a master of special-ops thrillers, and this one will only add to his stellar reputation. By focusing less on his near-superheroes and more on secondary characters this time around, Taylor adds human depth to his usually plot-driven novels, and the result is one of his best books to date.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)

Now Pike Logan and the Taskforce must find a refugee somewhere in Europe who can stop these machinations. With a five-city tour.
