Overview

In the first ever short story by Retired Delta Force officer Brad Taylor, the stakes couldn’t be higher as operator Pike Logan goes after the first Taskforce target leading a team he can’t fully trust.

Includes an exclusive preview of Brad Taylor’s hotly anticipated third Pike Logan novel, Enemy of Mine, coming January 15, 2013.

Commissioned at the highest level of the U.S. government, and designed to operate outside the bounds of U.S. law, a new counter-terrorist unit known as the Taskforce has just been formed, but not fully tested. Until now. Pike Logan has been given a team of operators drawn from the CIA’s National Clandestine Service and the military’s Special Operations Forces without any say in selecting the men on which he must depend. While executing a full mission profile exercise on U.S. soil, a target of opportunity appears before the Taskforce is deemed mission capable. Forced to execute, Pike and his team are sent to Yemen to track their first real target. The future of the Taskforce depends on their success, but when Pike is challenged by one of his own, their clear-cut mission teeters on the brink of disaster. The price of failure will reverberate much deeper than the loss of the target – straight into the presidency itself.

Propulsive, compelling, and told with unparalleled realism, The Callsign brings readers new insight into the origins of the Taskforce as they execute the first Omega operation in a relentless and action-packed short story.

    "THE CALLSIGN" I enjoyed reading about how this call

    "THE CALLSIGN"
    I enjoyed reading about how this call sign was assigned. Having followed an Air Force pilot around the
    country for 23 moves in 19 years, I know how important call signs are to all AF men. I have read all of Brad Taylor's books and can't wait for Enemy of Mine, especially after reading The Callsign.I know it will be as exciting as All Necessary Force and One Rough Man. Pike Logan is my hero, however, I think it's time for Pike and Jennifer to hook up. The Callsign is a great way to get acquainted with Brad Taylor's writing and to get to know The Taskforce and "Enemy of Mine." A great Christmas present!

    Short but Good

    As the story begins, Pike Logan's newly formed Taskforce, is on a training exercise in Charleston. The training involves committing an actual burglary and avoiding arrest. All without any sanction from the 'authorities'-because they are an off the record group.

    The new Taskforce is called upon for an urgent mission in Yemen, ready to go, or not to perform. Not all members were 'ready' and the mission goes south.

    I know this was a short story to give a little background on the Taskforce, but it was too short to do justice to the author's talent. A bonus at the end is an excerpt from the next full size novel, Enemy of Mine!

    This copy was provided by NetGalley and the Penguin Group in exchange for an honest review!
