Overview

Retired Delta Force officer Brad Taylor returns with the third explosive installment in the Pike Logan thrillers.

In retired Delta Force officer Brad Taylor’s third Pike Logan thriller, 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—gets wind 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, are charged with following the assassin’s flimsy trail through the Middle East, a trail that becomes more muddled at every turn. They must contend 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.

Brad Taylor is the complete package: a writer who understands how to tell a thrilling story, who possesses the knowledge to construct an intricate and utterly believable plot, and who has more than enough on-the-ground experience to back it up. His first two books appeared on bestseller lists nationwide, including The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today. Propulsive and compelling, Enemy of Mine is sure to join them.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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. Agent: John Talbot, Talbot Fortune. (Jan.)
Kirkus Reviews
This is Taylor's third Pike Logan thriller, and it's a good one. The United States government has secretly brokered a peace deal between Israel and Palestine, and terrorist forces plan to subvert it. Logan heads a clandestine Taskforce team that's determined to identify and root out the threat while there is still time. Logan's team must prevent an assassination in Qatar, facing down two adversaries. One is an Arab known as the Ghost, and the other is an American named Lucas Kane, who would murder his own mother for the right price. Logan knows him only too well, while Kane sees both men as killers at heart. Is Kane right, or does Logan have a moral core that sets him apart? He certainly gains the reader's sympathy as he struggles to balance being a rule-bending badass with being a human who has emotions extending beyond rage. In the past, Logan suffered a horrible personal loss that bears directly on his motivation, yet surprisingly, his climactic action hinges more on what happens to a colleague. The story moves along at a rapid clip, using short chapters and at least four points of view to grab and hold the reader's attention. The terrorists are smart, capable enemies, very much an even match for Logan's team. Satisfies from start to finish.

Brad Taylor's 3rd edition of Pike Logan and the Taskforce is the best yet!  While he builds off story-lines that were developed in the first two books, it could be read as a stand-alone.  Mr. Taylor is an incredible writer that has a way of sucking you into the plot. You will need to catch your breath as you complete Enemy of Mine.  The story is like a run-away train that will get your heart pounding and your adrenaline rushing.  It is one of the best books I have EVER read!

While I enjoy his book plots and characters I find that his descriptions of the violence a little too over the top. It is okay but not a book that I could recommend to many of my friends who do not like the deep descriptive violence.

I think Taylor is an excellent story teller. I totally enjoy following Pike Logan. Just finished two books and can't wait to pick up the next one.

At $13 for a nook book, it's too expensive. I love the series, but $13...really?
