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 best seller lists nationwide, including The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today. Propulsive and compelling, Enemy of Mine is sure to join them.

Who was your favorite character and why?
Pike Logan of course.
What does Rich Orlow and Henry Strozier bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
They work well as a team.
Any additional comments?
This is partially a story about revenge for both Pike and Jennifer. Jennifer gets a bit annoying with all of her thoughts about being a good person and being better than the people they are sent to kill. The plot twists and turns in unexpected directions which keep things interesting. The oversight council is still annoying, but it gives you a sense of how frustrated Pike must feel when terrorists are about to escape and politicians wring their hands.
I like Pike the rage filled man who is on the ragged edge of going berserk and this book definitely has that. It also brings Pike back to a sane place and he shows some superhuman restraint. This book feels like Brad Taylor is hitting his stride in terms of writing and everything is getting more polished and presentable. There is plenty of action and the pace is fast. There is also a lot of thought provoking story going on.

Good Story Telling
I really enjoy the way Brad Taylor weaves operational detail, the thinking process and mental gymnastics, as well characters into his story telling. Plus there are always a surprise twist or two and the good guy doesn't always make it in time - Pike and the team aren't always perfect but they do get the mission done.
