Pike Logan and the Taskforce trail a trained killer through the Middle East in this heart-pounding installment of Brad Taylor’s New York Times bestselling series.
A tentative peace between Israel and Palestine has been brokered by the United States. But the Taskforce—a clandestine team operating outside of US law to protect the country from terrorism—hears of an assassination attempt on the American envoy sent to solidify the treaty. The Taskforce must devote every resource to saving his life—and preventing another bloody outbreak of violence.
Taskforce operator Pike Logan and his partner, Jennifer Cahill, must hunt down the assassin through the Middle East, following a trail that becomes more perilous at every turn. And they must deal with terrorist organizations, independent killers, and shaky allies to uncover the biggest threat of all: an American citizen hiding a secret that just may destroy everything, including the Taskforce.
Bestseller Taylor's action-packed third Pike Logan thriller (after 2012's All Necessary Force) takes Pike, love interest Jennifer Cahill (now a seasoned warrior), and other members of Taskforce, "a counterterrorism organization made up of the best operators from the special mission units of the Department of Defense and the national clandestine service of the CIA," to Dubai, where embittered Palestinian Abdul Rahman (aka the Ghost) is concocting a clever plan involving an elevator and explosives to assassinate Jeffrey McMasters, the new U.S. peace envoy to the region. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Pike, the terrorist known as Infidel also has an interest in McMasters and the peace mission. It's a case of spy vs. spy vs. spy until Pike does what he does best take the bastards down. Taylor, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, may not bring anything new to this subgenre, but those who prize authentic military action will be rewarded.

I am a picky reader. If a book can't catch my attention within the first chapter or two, I will put it away and not finish it. There has not been one book that I have read of Brad Taylor's that has not only kept my attention but has also kept me wanting more! Love his books!!!
Great - spoilers maybe here
Very much enjoyed this book. There were two things that bothered me a bit. Once was that the phrase "in short order" was used way too many times within short spans of each other. The other thing was the last kill. I was looking forward to the closure of the revenge and everything that was building up to it and then it just cut to the next chapter. Major letdown there. I'm not going into detail but while it is worth the read, the kill wasn't what I was hoping for.
Enemy of Mine
