|Summary, etc.:|| "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. Hot on the trail of a North Korean looking to sell sensitive US intelligence to the Syrian regime, Pike Logan and the Taskforce stumble upon something much graver: the sale of a lethal substance called Red Mercury. Unbeknownst to the Taskforce, the Syrians plan to use the weapon of mass destruction against American and Kurdish forces, and blame the attack on terrorists, causing western nations to reassess their participation in the murky cauldron of the Syrian civil war. Meanwhile, North Korea has its own devastating agenda: a double-cross that will dwarf the attack in Syria even as it lays the blame on the Syrian government. Leveraging Switzerland's fame for secrecy and its vast network of military bunkers, now repurposed by private investors for the clandestine storage of wealth, North Korea will use Red Mercury to devastate the West's ability to deliver further sanctions against the rogue regime. As the Taskforce begins to unravel the plot, a young refugee unwittingly holds the key to the conspiracy. Hunted across Europe for reasons she cannot fathom, she is the one person who can stop the attack--if she can live long enough for Pike and Jennifer to find her"-- Provided by publisher.

*Starred Review* Taylor's latest Taskforce novel finds Pike Logan, Jennifer Cahill, and their team trying to stop the sale of a deadly nerve agent. The lethal substance is rumored to be Red Mercury, a gas so horrible that it has achieved a near-mythical status, though nobody in the intelligence community truly believes it can actually be manufactured. Has North Korea found a way to do the seemingly impossible? The sale hits a snag when a young woman who steals to survive takes the wrong man's cell phone. With the entire operation laid out in detail on the device, an order is given to find the thief and kill her and anyone else who might have seen the material. Double crosses and a bold plot to start WWIII all hinge on whether Logan and his team can get to the woman first. Taylor has already established himself as a master of special-ops thrillers, and this one will only add to his stellar reputation. By focusing less on his near-superheroes and more on secondary characters this time around, Taylor adds human depth to his usually plot-driven novels, and the result is one of his best books to date.
