    Brad’s books are great, I found a book of his at a thrift store and read through it shortly after. Now, I buy them in hardback when they first come out. Even though I also do my best to try getting as many of them on Kindle, so that I can have them in different formats.

    Pike is a fantastic character, and it’s tough to not love the gorgeous Knuckles. There is plenty of action to keep things moving along, and the pages turning as quickly as possible, too. Each one he does seems to be better than the one before it.

    Brad Taylor is the master of chilling and all too plausible plots in his novels.

    My best novel of the Pike Logan series has to be Daughter of War which is a great thriller packed with tons of action sequences. I loved the thrills as Pike Logan, Jennifer and the task force go on a quest to find a weapon of mass destruction.

    Another great novel in the series to check out is Ring of Fire which has some intriguing speculations about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It is a marvelous read that exposes the ties and financial backing of the executors of the terrorist attacks that are tied to the Panama Papers release.

    Reading through the series I loved the gripping and fast paced thrillers. I loved how Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill face up to insidious threat to the United States and do everything they can to deal with it in the face of great personal danger.

    I’m a fan of action-packed thrillers, and in my opinion, Brad Taylor is the right author.
    One Rough Man is an excellent introduction to the Pike Logan series as it gives a detailed background for Pike and how he works along with his supporting characters.
    It’s a high-energy action thriller series with good character development, a budding bold heroine, and a badass fallen from grace former anti-terrorist operative.
    Taylor is a talented writer and writes with great authenticity to leave readers wanting more.
    His books are real page-turners with actions on each page.
    Having served in Special Forces and Delta Force, his writing seems to have some truth.

    I read ‘One Rough Man’ and couldn’t believe it was Pike Logan’s debut novel. If he can produce such a masterpiece on his first try, can you imagine what he will do a decade or two later when his style is finally refined?

    Granted, I don’t have to wait to learn the answer to that question. From what this list says, ‘One Rough Man’ came out in 2011. I can determine whether Logan’s abilities improved or deteriorated by simply reading ‘All Necessary Force’ right now.

    And to be clear, I did not exaggerate when I called One Rough Man a masterpiece. To me, a masterpiece is any book that achieves its objective efficiently and optimally. Logan did that with One Rough Man. I was thoroughly entertained.

    Finished Honeymoon Heist just last week and found it cute. Looking ahead to Dead Man’s Hand.

    THE DEVIL’S RANSOM – Overall, this was a good read. But it was a bit long when the bad guys and good guys chased the main hacker around southern Croatia. It just kept going and going and…….. After reading some other reviews I wasn’t the only one to notice this. I would say almost one-third of the book dealt on running after the hackers. Other than that, it was a good story. One that I haven’t come across yet. Sometimes I get tired of the same old bombs and explosives scenarios.

    This won’t keep me from the next Pike Logan saga.

    I love the genre of Brad Taylor’s books. Another plus is that he has the same main characters in them.

    The Pike Logan series is an excellent read. I have read the entire series at least twice, if not more. I always seem to find some small fact that I didn’t remember from the previous read
