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.

Traversing the globe to stop this catastrophe, the two soon discover there is a more dangerous enemy lurking in the shadows.

New release in this series on June 28, 2016

During recent years the Pike Logan-Jennifer Cahill series by Brad Taylor has become one of my favorites. The genre is espionage/action thriller. Brad Taylor is a very prolific author releasing novels at the rate of 2 annually. The Widow's Strike is a solid 5 star thriller. To get more info on the book read the publisher's summary. Book 10 in the series, Ghosts of War., will be released in 6 days. I really like the narration style on these novels. Rich Orlow narrates the first person Pike Logan parts and Henry Stozier narrates the third person parts. Both narrators are outstanding.

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

Terrible.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

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.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

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.


What about Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performance did you like?

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.


Any additional comments?

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.
