Publisher's Summary

Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are used to putting their lives at risk, but in The Polaris Protocol it's Jennifer's brother and countless more innocents who face unfathomable violence and bloodshed. Pike and Jennifer are in Turkmenistan with the Taskforce - a top-secret antiterrorist unit that operates outside US law - when Jennifer gets a call from her brother, Jack. Working on an investigative report into the Mexican drug cartels, Jack Cahill has unknowingly gotten caught between two rival groups. His desperate call to his sister is his last before he's kidnapped. In their efforts to rescue Jack, Pike and Jennifer uncover a plot much more insidious than illegal drug trafficking - the cartel that put a target on Jack's back has discovered a GPS hack with the power to effectively debilitate the United States. The hack allows a user to send false GPS signals, making it possible to manipulate everything from traffic signals and banking wire transfers to cruise missiles, but only while the system's loophole remains in place.

Too Much Brutality

I enjoy the author's stories, plot lines, characters, and action, but the brutality has been getting worse and worse, and I might be done with him because of it. He could make his point quite well in a fashion other than with prolonged graphic torture scenes. I do not care for Henry Strozier's voice and style. It's ponderous and unpleasant. The voice of Pike Logan is very good, and I would be happy to listen him narrate the entire book.

Grammar school clique fest

If you're looking for a good thriller skip this author. This book has a ridiculous storyline and is truly horribly written. I only finished this book because I wanted to give the author a chance thinking that maybe the book would get better as I went. Unfortunately it only got worse with an overly complicated plot and very little in the way of action or mystery. I found the story to be most propelled by nonsensical decisions by the characters the no person would make in real life. The only thing worse than the story was the dialogue. It was so full of clichés that I wanted to quit but pressed on. The best part of the book is when the reader said "The End". Extremely predictable with manufactured tension and pointless conversations full of stereotypical male machismo and female bumbling and ineptitude. Save yourself twelve hours and forty-two minutes of your life and skip this hunk of garbage.

The best of the best Pike Logan and his team!

Great book unique adventures and positively the best writing and narration. I do wish they would use a female voice for Jennifer! I'm a great fan of the series!

Darn good book!

A very enjoyable thriller top-notch all the way. The narrators are excellent not overstating things but just telling the story. I enjoyed this Pike Logan story the best of the five so far. If you're on the fence get off of it this is a good book, a really good book!

Be afraid...be very afraid

Would you try another book from Brad Taylor and/or Henry Strozier?

Not a chance. There are only so many hours in a lifetime.

Any additional comments?

It was like teen fiction. Perhaps 'Twilight' for its' espionage equivalent. I have only ever stopped reading / listening to two books in my lifetime. This gem has the distinction of being the third.

Not as good as the others

Kind of verging on non stop action that adrenaline junckies like. Little character development. Almost gave up half way through. Might be my last of the Pike Logan series.

Loved the book…..

But I did not appreciate the last 10 mins or so. I want my protagonists to be better than that.
