Hunter Killer

by Brad Taylor

Part of the Taskforce Series

Thriller and Suspense

LoveReading View on Hunter Killer

A full-on “wrecking machine” from the get go, take a deep breath and just fall right on in to this action thriller. Taking place over a week, the Pike Logan series continues with Pike under threat; his team are being targeted and he will do anything to protect them. This is my first foray with The Taskforce and it won’t be my last. Even though I joined an already established series, I felt right at home. If you are also new, let me tell you a little about the author Brad Taylor, and you will know all you need to about the tone and authenticity of these novels. He served for more than 21 years in the US Army, retiring as a Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel. He has conducted operations all over the world, and his final assignment was as the Assistant Professor of Military Science at The Citadel in Charleston. He holds a Master’s of Science in Defence Analysis with a concentration in Irregular Warfare. If you are looking for a new action series and haven’t yet met The Taskforce, then look no further. In 2011 Brad Taylor published his debut One Rough Man which launched the Pike Logan series and now contains over twenty books and novellas. I was sucker-punched at the outset of this novel and as a newbie may have been racing to catch up, but that only added to the tension. The notes at the end are fascinating reading as the author explains how the novel came into being.  Hunter Killer allows you to enter a hidden world of fast moving action from the comfort of your armchair, it’s a whammy of a novel and thoroughly entertaining.

Hunter Killer Synopsis


They call them the Taskforce. Designed to operate outside the bounds of law, trained to exist on the ragged edge of human capability, their existence is as essential as it is illegal. Recruited from top operators in the intelligence spheres and led by ex-Special Forces Operator Pike Logan, they are apex predators. An unrivalled hunting machine, until now.

On a counter-terrorist mission in the triple frontier - the lawless border region where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay join - the Taskforce meets its match. And then the unthinkable happens, Logan's unit goes missing. As he heads to Brazil to investigate, Logan runs headlong into a crew of Russian assassins. Forged in combat, the Russians are the Taskforce's equal... but Logan's on the warpath. He'll do whatever it takes to save his team.
