Compared to such luminaries as #1 New York Times best-selling authors Brad Thor and Vince Flynn, Brad Taylor delivers edgy and adrenaline-drenched military thrillers. The Widow's Strike pits Taskforce operator Pike Logan and his partner Jennifer Cahill against a Chechen suicide bomber intent on releasing a deadly, genetically mutated virus. Traversing the globe to stop this catastrophe, the two soon discover there is a more dangerous enemy lurking in the shadows.

Fans of the Grey Man, maybe. The characters are flat as cardboard. No background or personalization whatsoever. I previously complained that Patricia Highsmith spent too much time in developing a character and what they were thinking. This is the other extreme: no character at all.
Not at all. I didn't care a bit for the characters, therefore the plot was of no interest. If anything kept me on the edge of my seat it was wondering when I might learn something about the characters.
Unlike others, the use of two different narrators, one for first-person and one for third-person, didn't bother me at all. They were adequate but didn't have anything interesting to work with.
I have worked my way through most books that I didn't care for, but a few, including this one, I just couldn't finish. I really didn't care what happened, so the slog wasn't work the effort. I quit and returned the book.
