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 the H5N1 virus—aka the
“bird flu”—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 who have the highest kill rate of any terrorist
organization. By infecting her, then instructing her to detonate in the
United States, her body will become the real weapon, spraying the virus
into a crowd.
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.
