Find her before anyone else does.
The Taskforce – a highly clandestine Special Forces unit – discovers a deadly substance. North Korea plans to sell 'Red Mercury' to the Syrian regime. The Taskforce can't let that happen.
Yet no one expected a young Syrian pickpocket to steal the key to the whole conspiracy. Everyone is after the girl, including Taskforce operator Pike Logan. He has to find Amena first so that her life, and the lives of millions, can be spared.
Praise for Brad Taylor:
'It's an excellent read, and I greatly enjoyed it' Nelson DeMille.
'Pike ranks right up there with Jason Bourne, Jack Reacher and Jack Bauer' John Lescroart.
'Logan is a tough, appealing hero you're sure to root for' Joseph Finder.
'Fresh plot, great actions, and Taylor clearly knows what he is writing about' Vince Flynn.
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.
