Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Great narration team

Beginning with Novel #2 in the Pike Logan espionage and suspense thriller series Rich Orlow began doing all of the Pike Logan first person narration and Henry Strozier began doing all of the third person narration. The two narrators combine for consistently 5 star efforts.

Jennifer Cahill joined the Taskforce in short story #1.5. In this third novel she becomes Pike Logan's business partner and his life's partner. Their archeological company is a front government contractor for clandestine work.

As I write this review novel #11 in the Pike Logan series titled Ring of Fire will be released in approximately 30 hours. I am looking forward to listening to it.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Needs a better narrator

I've read Brad Taylor's two previous books, and enjoyed them. I had my doubts about an audiobook, because there's too much extraneous description, but not enough to form a clear picture of the characters. I come away with a fuzzy impression of the supporting characters (not Pike or Jennifer, but I've already read the previous two books!), like they're not real. So the characterization needs work.

The story is good, and the ending and wrap-up particularly satisfying. The narrator doing Pike Logan is fine, and should be utilized for the entire book. The narrator doing the rest of the book is ponderous and lifeless, dragging out his enunciation and interfering with the flow of the story.

Somebody should tell the author to explain himself when he throws in Pike's given name ("Pike" is a nickname), because all he's doing is puzzling the reader, as in "Who's he talking about? Where did that come from?"

I enjoy this genre, and Brad Taylor is a fine asset.
