After the past few missions garnered more visibility than the Taskforce ever wants, there seems to a sustained desire by politicians to reign Pike Logan and his team in. Preparing to join their teammates on a mission in South America they found themselves being the hunted rather than the hunters. These bad guys seem to know far too much about the group, their activities, and where they live. When they get too close to Logan’s family, it gets personal and Pike turns to his darker side.
“Wolffe squatted down and raised the man’s chin with the barrel of his weapon, saying, “In this world there is a measure of skill waiting to be exposed, whether it’s playing football or playing a piano. Very few reach a master class of talent. It takes something to trigger. Something unique to get an ordinary human to do extraordinary things. Usually, it’s pain in life.” The man looked at him in confusion, wondering where the conversation was headed. Wolffe tapped his head with the barrel of his weapon and said, “Pike Logan’s talent is death, and he learned it through the loss of his family. You were dumb enough to threaten his new family, and because of it, you just elevated him into the master class.” Wolffe dropped his chin and leaned back. He said, “Pike doesn’t care about your mission. He doesn’t care about your money. He doesn’t care about your threats. He cares about his family. He’s the fourth horseman, and you opened the seal. Far from you stopping him, I might not now be able to.”
I’ve enjoy all of Brad Taylor’s novels in the Pike Logan series and Hunter Killer is no exception. Non-stop action and breathtaking adventure are a usual component of his novels. If you want edge-of-your-seat action, this novel is for you.
