Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Brad Taylor's latest heart-stopping thriller, Pike Logan returns with his most dangerous and personal threat yet: a Taskforce operator gone rogue.

For years the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce has worked in the shadows, anticipating and preventing attacks around the globe. Created to deal with a terrorist threat that shuns the civilized rule of law, it abandoned the same, operating outside of the US Constitution. Though wildly successful, it was rooted in a fear that the cure could be worse than the disease. And now that fear has come home.

A Special Forces soldier is killed on an operation in Afghanistan, and complicit in the attack is a government official of an allied nation. While the US administration wants to forget the casualty, one Taskforce member will not. When he sets out to avenge his brother's death, his actions threaten not only to expose the Taskforce's activities but also to destroy a web of alliances against a greater evil.

Pike Logan understands the desire but also the danger. Brought in to eliminate the risk, he's now forced to choose between his friend and the administration he's sworn to protect while, unbeknownst to either of them, the soldier's death is only the beginning....

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Another supurb Pike Logan thriller!"

    Brad Taylor is rapidly becoming one of my favorite espionage thriller writers. The Forgotten Soldier, novel 9 in the series, does not quite measure up to some of the prior novels in the series, but it is still a great listen. The narration is really excellent.

    Story
    "Each Logan/Cahill book is better than the last"
    What other book might you compare The Forgotten Soldier to and why?

    I would compare this to a Vince Flynn or David Baldacci or Ben Coes book. Nonstop action combined with international intrigue, who could ask for more?


    Which character – as performed by Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow – was your favorite?

    Orlow and Stozier have become the voices of Pike Logan and company. Their performances were excellent as always.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was certainly worth the wait and in my opinion the best of the series so far! The story was complicated enough to give it a realistic feel with out going so far out that it sounded like "fiction". A task force member's brother is killed in Afghanistan and his personal effects are returned to him. I won't restate everything you can read in the synopsis but when the brother (Guy George) takes his suspicions before those in charge of this country's security he is told to back off and that he's making his brother's death personal. He goes out on his own and bodies begin the pile up. This turns into a global race with Pike and Company close but not close enough. If I say anymore it will spoil it for anyone who wants to read/listen to this book but the tension, stratigies and even humor that follow had me listening to 3/4 of it the first day! This is an overall Excellent listen with a satisfying conclusion and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

    "Another great read"

    Brad Taylor continues to show evolution as a writer and with his character development. his short stories for introducing new characters and background information flow seamlessly into his new books. Since Vince Flynn left us, there is no one even close to what Brad Taylor is currently producing in this genre.

    "Best yet"

    All of the Pike Logan series seem are strictly about him and his girlfriend's exploits. It was referring to have another character development for a majority of the book and then have Pike sort of wipe up.....

    "A new wrinkle for a change... Well done"

    This book starts out with a number of new characters slipped into a new story foremat, along with identity take overs and of course spontaneous violence.
    But this story line is new and somewhat unique, so much so that in the beginning I checked a few times to make sure I was reading the right book. The readers turned in a great product this time.. Don't mind telling you I was happier with this book over the last two!
    This one is worth the credit!

    "Best one yet"

    I'm a huge Brad Taylor fan and I think this is the best book yet. The characters have really matured and changed based on their experiences. It really feels like you are part of a team that has come a long way and now operates better than they did in the first books.

    "Character and Plot Maturing into Real Depth"

    In the latest installment we see Pike maturing in his understanding of the Oversight Committee, Task Force organization and management as well as his decision making. At the same time we see Jennifer embracing the work of the Task Force and less reluctant to participate in operations only because Pike has pushed her into the life; she too is maturing into the role of an operator and team member. The new team member (Veep) is a nice addition to see how a new guy struggles to integrate as well as how he is mentored. Nice character development and personal touches that create depth to the characters. There is action, tension, politics, comradery, and touches of humor. This is well written and well narrated.

    "Another good one!"

    My only issue, as with others in the series, is the occasional inconsistencies with narration. Pike's voice should ALWAYS be his. Not interchanged. Minor point. But being a fan of the series I've picked up on it.
