Description

In the fourth thriller in Brad Taylor s "New York Times" bestselling Pike Logan series, the Taskforce must stop a suicide bomber intent on triggering a global epidemic. Invented by nature but genetically manipulated by man, a mutation of a deadly virus has fallen into the wrong hands. Angered by sanctions placed against its nuclear program, a rogue state is determined to release it. Their chosen method: one of the Black Widows female suicide terrorists of Chechen descent with a deadly reputation for slaughter that rivals any other group. The only thing standing in the Black Widow s way is the Taskforce, an extra-legal counterterrorism unit. Racing against time to prevent a global pandemic, Taskforce operator Pike Logan and his partner Jennifer Cahill follow the trail across Southeast Asia to the United States, only to learn that the enemy they face may not be the enemy they should fear. "The Widow s Strike" ties together government-sanctioned terrorist activities, nefarious multinational conglomerates, and frighteningly plausible science. Infused with authenticity from Brad Taylor s decades of service as a Delta Force commander, it s an explosive ride alongside America s counterterrorism operators that will leave readers breathless.
