The Devil's Ransom
A New York Times Bestseller!
In the latest explosive thriller from New York Times bestselling author and former special forces officer Brad Taylor, Pike Logan races to stop an insidious attack orchestrated by a man who knows America’s most treasured secrets.
Conducting a routine cover development trip to Tajikistan, Pike and Jennifer learn that Afghanistan has fallen, and there’s a man on the run. One that has done more for the United States in Afghanistan than anyone else. Pulled in to extract him, Pike collides headlong into a broader mystery: His covert company, along with every other entity in the Taskforce, has been hit with a ransomware attack, and there’s some connection between the Taliban and the hack. Given the order to track down the perpetrators, he has no idea that the problem set is much, much larger and more dangerous than a simple attack on his organization. That hack was just a test-run, and the real one is coming soon, engendered by a former NSA specialist in the U.S. government.
A man who wants to return to the bipolar world of the Cold War, the turncoat has cloaked his attack behind hackers from Serbia and Russia, and if successful, his target will alter the balance of power on the global stage. So far, the specialist has remained one step ahead of the Taskforce, but he has just made one massive mistake: hitting Pike Logan.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
You know what you’re going to get when you pick up one of Brad Taylor’s Pike Logan thrillers: genuinely tense action—and lots of running. This time, Pike, his partner, Jennifer Cahill, and their special-ops team known as the Taskforce are set loose from Tajikistan to Croatia in a maze of twisted loyalties, ruthless killers, secret treasure, and wily international hackers. A former Delta Force officer himself, Taylor peppers the story with inside knowledge of military terminology and espionage methods, all of which regular series narrator Rich Orlow makes as exciting as the thrilling action sequences. If you love an adrenaline-fueled read, The Devil’s Ransom is just the ticket.
