All Necessary Force
Jan 17, 2012
A terrorist hit is coming. The CIA, FBI, and Department of Defense systems have spiked, but traditional intel is going nowhere. It falls to the Taskforce - a top- secret team that exists outside the bounds of U.S. law and is charged with finding and destroying asymmetric threats-to stop the unknown conspirators.
A shadowy trail leads the Taskforce through Asia and into Egypt, where an attack leaves one hardened Taskforce member dead and another barely breathing. Pike Logan and his partner, Jennifer Cahill, are forced to helm the increasingly convoluted and dangerous mission-a mission that tests Jennifer's ability to justify means for an end and Pike's tenuous ability to stay in control. Sifting their way through the opposing plots of two terrorist organizations will turn out to be the least of their problems when a weapon of unthinkable power touches American soil . . . the only country in which Taskforce members are forbidden to operate, and the only country that Pike Logan may be unable to save.
Told with unparalleled realism informed by Taylor's decades of experience in the U.S. Army Infantry and Delta Force, All Necessary Force takes readers on a terrifying journey that ends at our own front door.
If you enjoy political intrigue/covert war operation type stories, this book has it all. Not only is it filled with action, but because of Brad’s real life experience as a part of Delta Force, it’s incredibly true to life and has solid experience and knowledge behind the story. In fact the publisher made sure to post a disclaimer that this in, in fact, a book of fiction, not a memoir.
This is a very detail oriented story with many twists and turns, so you need to pay attention while reading. But the story line itself is interesting and the characters are well fleshed out and likable, so it’s not a hardship. Don't we all love to read about those "hidden" government groups that keep our country alive and kicking? :)
