Publisher's Summary

The Taskforce has stopped countless terrorist threats across the globe, operating outside of US law to prevent the deaths of innocents. But now, along the fault lines of the old Iron Curtain, the danger is far greater than a single attack.
With Russia expanding its influence from Syria to the Baltic States, the Taskforce is placed on stand-down because of the actions of one rogue operator. Meanwhile Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill travel to Poland, hired to verify artifacts hidden for decades in a fabled Nazi gold train, only to find themselves caught amid growing tensions between East and West. A Russian incursion into Belarus under the facade of self-defense is trumped by a horrific attack against the United States, driving NATO to mobilize even as it tries to determine who is behind the strike.
On the brink of war, Pike and Jennifer discover that there is a separate agenda in play, one determined to force a showdown between NATO and Russia. With time running out and America demanding vengeance, Pike and Jennifer race to unravel the mystery before a point of no return is reached. Unbeknownst to them, there is another attack on the way - one that will guarantee World War III.

Brad Taylor never disappoints!

This the third recent release where some Audible listeners posted negative ratings before having the time to listen to the espionage novel even at 3X listening speed. The other two were Foreign Agent by Brad Thor and First Strike by Ben Coes. I usually listen to books at 2X recording speed because that is most comfortable for me. Ghosts of War, the 10th novel in the Pike Logan series, is a solid 5 star espionage thriller which I recommend, but it still is not as good as First Strike by Ben Coes. First Strike ties Back Blast by Mark Greaney for the best espionage novels released so far this year. I use the same criteria another Audible listener has stated for awarding 5 star ratings: I believe it must be an outstanding book which I look forward to listen to again. Ghosts of War easily meets those criteria.

This novel is a continuation of The Forgotten Soldier, the prior novel in the Pike Logan series, but I like this story more. It picks up exactly where The Forgotten Soldier finished.

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

everything awful

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

good narrator and good story with decent dialogue


Has Ghosts of War turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, just this reader and autor


What didn’t you like about Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performance?

Don't know which was which, but the young man sounded like a teenager reading out loud for the first time Older man ok


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment. The author had horrible and redundant dialogue between his characters that changed from interesting in earlier books to childish and silly conversations.


Any additional comments?

Author was very repetitive in conversations and dealt over and over again with the same silly give and take. Completely unbelievable scenarios out of the realm even of soap opera nonsense. Decent and interesting characters from earlier books were reduced to bickering adolescents through psychological mumbo jumbo that was nonsensical.
