Author: Brad Taylor
Series: Pike Logan (2nd)
Synopsis (from the publisher): A terrorist hit is coming.
The CIA, FBI, and Department of Defense systems have spiked, but traditional intel is going nowhere. It falls to the Taskforce-a top- secret team that exists outside the bounds of U.S. law and is charged with finding and destroying asymmetric threats — to stop the unknown conspirators.
A shadowy trail leads the Taskforce through Asia and into Egypt, where an attack leaves one hardened Taskforce member dead and another barely breathing. Pike Logan and his partner, Jennifer Cahill, are forced to helm the increasingly convoluted and dangerous mission — a mission that tests Jennifer's ability to justify means for an end and Pike's tenuous ability to stay in control. Sifting their way through the opposing plots of two terrorist organizations will turn out to be the least of their problems when a weapon of unthinkable power touches American soil … the only country in which Taskforce members are forbidden to operate, and the only country that Pike Logan may be unable to save.
