As COVID still rages, a deadly countdown clock steadily ticks away, bringing the world ever closer to doomsday. For someone has been watching, waiting for the perfect time to strike a deadly blow that will devastate the world. But there’s one person who can stop it from happening: Pike Logan. Will he succeed? Find out in Brad Taylor’s End of Days.

Brad Taylor's END OF DAYS
William Morrow

After the head of Israeli intelligence is murdered while paragliding over Switzerland, Mossad brings in Aaron and Shoshana to investigate. They conscript Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill to help them find the culprit before the body count rises any further.

While some are happy to point fingers at Keta’ib Hezbollah, an Iranian-funded militia group operating in Iraq, Logan and his team must discover if they are responsible for the “accidental” deaths of both American and Israeli government officials. Something just doesn’t add up, however, and Pike is determined to hunt down the real assassins.

Then the Taskforce stumbles upon a serial killer loose in Rome, and evidence leads them to the Knights of Malta. Now they must navigate between religious and political landmines if they are to find out who is pulling the strings in one of the most dangerous cases of their careers.

With End of Days, Taylor does an exceptional job constructing a chilling tale set dead center in the midst of the COVID pandemic. He bridges the recent past and the present with relative ease, carefully revealing why the American forces who fought in the Iraq War still have reason for trepidation. The result is a story that doles out both suspense and political insight with equal measure.

Like most books in the Pike Logan series, this 16th volume will definitely make readers sit up and pay attention because Taylor’s insider knowledge makes everything here seem all too plausible. He reminds us of what potential horrors may still await, and why it is little wonder that governments must be ever vigilant regarding any and all potential time bombs that appear on their radar. If you enjoy tightly written thrillers that leave the hairs on the back of your neck standing at attention, End of Days definitely needs to be high atop your TBR pile.
