Former Special Forces Officer and New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor delivers a heart-pounding thriller featuring Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill as they come face to face with a conspiracy where nothing is as it seems.
Praise for Daughter of War "Mesmerizing...[Taylor] adds
his trademark rapid-fire pace and action scenes that rival the best
of Brad Thor and Vince Flynn. A must-read for all hardcore thriller
"Taylor has already established himself as a master of special-ops thrillers, and this one will only add to his stellar reputation...Taylor adds human depth to his usually plot-driven novels, and the result is one of his best books to date."
--Booklist (starred review) "Taylor clearly has the qualifications to provide a military thriller with realistic details, and he does just that in this latest addition to the Pike Logan series....a fast-paced thriller. A believable story with the kind of interesting details that keep the pages turning."
--Kirkus Reviews "Meticulously plotted...particularly gripping."
--Publishers Weekly More Praise for Brad Taylor and the Pike Logan series "[A] page-turning thriller...Taylor is one of today's premiere authors writing about the world of special ops."
--Associated Press "Brad Taylor's Pike Logan thrillers just keep getting better, and Operator Down is his most ambitious and fully realized yet....Taylor continues to stand with Brad Thor and James Rollins at the top of the action-thriller genre. But Operator Down features the polished echoes of Daniel Silva and even John le Carre, a thriller that's at once both cerebral and muscular, a rare combination that Taylor pulls off with skill and aplomb."
--Providence Journal "Former Delta Force officer Taylor relies on his familiarity with modern combat logistics to create credible characters and complex plots that pulse with intense intrigue, authenticity, and realism. Fans of military thrillers will enjoy how this narrative mirrors current events in the worldwide war on terror."
"As usual in the Pike Logan series, the spycraft and related technology are fascinating, the dialogue crackles, and all the players are operating in an international sea of moral ambiguity. Recommend Pike Logan to readers who like their spies tough, smart, and bordering on superhuman."

--Kirkus Reviews "Brad Taylor continues to tackle one of the pressing fears of today--terrorism. The plots and the characters are fictional but Taylor's meticulous research brings that sense of chilling believability to his Pike Logan thrillers....Taylor delivers a high-energy thriller in Ring of Fire."
--Oline Cogdill, South Florida Sun-Sentinel "Pike ranks right up there with Jason Bourne, Jack Reacher, and Jack Bauer."
--John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author "Fresh plot, great action, and Taylor clearly knows what he is writing about....When it comes to tactics and hardware, he is spot-on."
--Vince Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Logan is a tough, appealing hero you're sure to root for."
