Pike Logan recruits Jennifer Cahill to team
One Rough Man, the first Pike Logan novel by Brad Taylor was released early in 2011, showed real promise for the new espionage thriller author and former US special forces lieutenant colonel. The audiobook suffered from poor narration. The Dig, the first Pike Logan short story, made two important and valuable changes. The first was the recruitment of Jennifer Cahill onto the Taskforce. The second one was new narrators for the audiobook. All of Taylor's books are written partially in first person Pike Logan and partially third person. Rich Orlow became the voice of Pike Logan and Henry Strozier became the third person narrator. The Orlow and Strozier duo have continued as narrators. They are terrific!
With the mid-year 2016 release of of Ghosts of War novel the Pike Logan series will be 10 novels and 5 short stories. The quality of the books has remained consistently high. The frequent rate of new releases of novels in a series, 10 in six years, is unusual for a top tier thriller author. Most such authors release one novel annually (in some cases less than one per year).
The Dig also makes another major change as Pike Logan goes from government employee to government contractor when he and Cahill start Grolier Recovery Services in Charleston SC to serve as a cover company for government espionage contracting.
Although The Dig is a short story the changes therein are major elements in setting up the series for it future excellence and success. The story is Book 1.5 in the series

Hard to follow early narration.
The early narration of the “locals” and male non-primary characters was almost impossible to follow, one voice for almost all characters.
I found it frustrating and hard to follow.
Also at the introduction and the end the female announcer calls the main character “Spike” Logan, I thought I miss heard but I didn’t. His name is “Pike” Logan, the first book goes through a complete explanation of how he got the name “Pike” so I don’t know how “Spike” got into the introduction and conclusion credits. Very Poor editing I guess.
