Brad Taylor is one my favorite espionage novelists

Since his first Pile Logan series novel was published less than seven years ago Brad Taylor has released 10 more novels and 6 novellas in the series. Taylor is not as good as Mark Greaney or Ben Coes (what living authors of espionage thrillers are?), but he is both prolific and terrific. Since Jennifer Cahill joined the Taskforce early on, the series should be called the Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill series.

Set mostly in Nigeria where a Jihadist group has been supplied with a nuclear bomb by the Russians. It is up to Pike Logan and his team and friends from the Mossad he did not ask for or know he needed to resolve the issue. I thoroughly enjoyed Days of Rage which is Book 6 in the Pike Logan series.

After a narration fiasco with his first Pike Logan novel, Brad Taylor hit upon wonderful narrators. Taylor writes his novels in a combination of third person and first person (of Pike Logan). Henry Stozier does the third person narration and Rich Orlow does the Pike Logan first person narration. The combination of two male narrators works wonderfully.

Exciting but not epic

Like all Pike Logan stories the story has a good start and gets you ready. The characters are well developed and you have a good understanding as to where the story is headed. I enjoyed that aspect of the book. However, I found the “Soap Box” style dialogue between Pike and some of the characters boring and counterproductive to the story. They were nothing more than page filling gibberish that the author could have minimized without impacting the movement of the story. The author’s details are spot on and nicely constructed into the story, so as to add inform the reader and better illustrate the story sequence from a technical perspective. I found the character development of the government official involved in the initial Olympic event weak and it stayed that way through the story. This person was the underlying nemesis, yet the author never painted the character as he should have. The same is true for the Israeli team. Their initial involvement was weak and left much for the reader to fill in. The author did a better job developing the Israeli team toward the end of the story, but their actual interface, goals, and objectives weren’t clear until the end of the book. Some of the plots were weak. For example the author spent considerable time on developing the character and purpose for the African agent, then several pages on the final pursuit, and then an anti-climatic end. The book’s ending appeared to be hastily written and anti-climatic. I was expecting a different ending regarding Pike’s involvement with neutralizing the threat and relationship with the female Israeli operator. Non of that happened. I found the entire book ending abruptly, without even a hint of to be continued. I found the narrative excellent. Each character was well presented and identifiable. I would read the book again and would urge Brad Taylor to spend s little more time developing and presenting the story. This one appeared to b

Action, new characters and entertaining

First I really enjoy the maturity that Brad Taylor brings to his novels when handling gender and sexual orientation. He doesn't sugar coat the issues (men doubting women's abilities for example) but he provides room for his characters to develop and grow. And he doesn't ignore the male preoccupation with women's bodies (use of male to male language describing a women's body) still showing reality. He brings this same approach to sexual orientation allowing for the subject to be brought up with humor diffusing the light yet shining a light. Very well done. There is honesty and yet a push to show a higher standard for men, women and different sexual orientation providing role models. This might be wishful thinking on Taylor's part, that people really could work together based on ability and respect, - It is a worthy goal! Thank you Brad! Now for the 'real' review.... there is the usual nonstop action, globe trotting, & traitor but a new twist as Jennifer and Pike find themselves working without the Task Force Team and with a foreign spy service. A few twists as there always are. I don't think it is the best in the series but certainly well worth the credit. Taylor hasn't disappointed me yet, I am looking forward to many more in this series.

Little heavy on the action, short on character dev

Pretty much a single track story that's a little heavy on the adrenaline pumping action. If that's what you like, great. Wish there was a little more character development. Will I buy the next one? Probably. But if it goes this direction more, it'll be my last.

Narrator was top notch. AND the chapters were accurately reflected on my android...a rare thing!

Fav

My new favorite author, for thrillers and action stories.
A realism in some ways more grainey than the more recent Clancy offerings - reminds me of the more early novels like “No Remorse” in intracacy and detail.

sheepdog protecting the flock

In depth story using current intelligence/armed forces protocols. Hollywood has quit sharing the secrets but the master of his craft Brad Taylor shares the ins and outs of working the problem;

Great story and wonderful performance, but. . .

You lose the ability to suspend all disbelief when the story infers that Israel would do anything to help the USA. Remember the USS Liberty, folks!
