"Former Delta Force officer and New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor delivers a relentlessly fast-paced, gripping thriller featuring Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill as they come face-to-face with an insidious threat to strike terror into the heart of America. Fifteen years ago, in order to win a contract in the Kingdom, a desperate defense contractor used a shell company to provide a bribe to a wealthy Saudi businessman. Now a powerful player in the defense industry, he panics when the Panama Papers burst onto the public scene. Providing insight into the illicit deeds of offshore financing, they could prove his undoing. To prevent the exposure of his illegal activities, he sets in motion a plan to interdict the next leak, but he is not the only one worried about spilled secrets. The data theft has left the Taskforce potentially vulnerable, leaving a trail that could compromise the unit. Back in the good graces of the new president, Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are ordered to interdict the next leak as well, in order to control the damage. Unbeknownst to either group, the Saudi has been using the shell company to fund terrorists all over the world, and he has a spectacular attack planned, coinciding with the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11. The information Pike and Jennifer uncover will put them on the trail of the imminent threat, but it's one that they might be unable to stop. Called Ring of Fire, it will cause unimaginable destruction across the United States, and it's already in motion. Pike Logan will be challenged like never before, and the ensuing chaos and terror will distract the Taskforce from a truth no one sees: The Panama Papers hold a secret more explosive than any attack, and Ring of Fire was only the beginning. The danger is far from over"--

I've read every Taylor book and thoroughly enjoy his cast of characters. Pike and Knuckles bring todays blaring terrorist problem into more perspective when watching the evening news. My Air Force room-mate was stationed in French Morocco (1959). Remembering his stories about the country, the French control and his travels to Rabat and Casablanca gave me more vision to this story.

I like Brad Taylor's books and this one was no exception. I read three other reviews that expressed some disappointment, but I found the plot interesting and timely and the story moved along generally at a good pace despite needing a lot of set up. Lot's of moving parts and subplots to keep one occupied. All in all another good read.

I've read every one of Brad Taylor's books and felt this one started very, very slowly. It got exciting toward the end but was a disappointment compared to his other outstanding books.

Having read all of Brad Taylor's
previous books, this one was a big disappointment. In a word it was BORING !!! >> I rated this 2 stars (but my computer wouldn't co-operate)
