Book Review: A Pike Logan Novel – The Devil’s Ransom

Brad Taylor’s latest novel, “Insidious Attack,” is not just any ordinary thriller. It’s a rollercoaster ride full of intrigue, suspense, and unexpected twists and turns that will leave readers breathless.

The novel follows the story of Pike Logan, a former special forces officer who is tasked with stopping an insidious attack orchestrated by a Washington insider with twisted loyalties. Conducting a routine cover development trip to Tajikistan, Pike and his partner, Jennifer, learn that Afghanistan has fallen, and a man who has done more for the United States in Afghanistan than anyone else is on the run.

Pulled in to extract him, Pike collides headlong into a broader mystery: His covert company, along with every other entity in the Taskforce, has been hit with a ransomware attack, and there’s some connection between the Taliban and the hack. Given the order to track down the perpetrators, he has no idea that the problem set is much, much larger and more dangerous than a simple attack on his organization. That hack was just a test-run, and the real one is coming soon, engendered by a former NSA specialist in the U.S. government.

The story is fast-paced and action-packed, with heart-stopping moments interspersed with quieter moments that allow readers to catch their breath. Brad Taylor knows how to write intense scenes, and he does it with a level of detail and authenticity that makes it all the more captivating.

One of the most impressive things about this novel is how Taylor manages to weave in real-life events and issues, such as the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan and cybercrime. It makes the story feel more relevant and timely, giving it an added layer of depth and meaning.

Taylor’s characters are also incredibly well-crafted. Pike Logan is a flawed hero, but it’s his vulnerabilities that make him so likable and relatable. Jennifer also shines as a strong and capable partner, and their chemistry and banter are a delight to read.

Overall, “Insidious Attack” is a thrilling and entertaining novel that will keep readers hooked from start to finish. It’s a testament to Brad Taylor’s skills as a writer and storyteller, and a must-read for fans of the thriller genre. So buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life!
