Publisher's Summary

“Few authors write about espionage, terrorism, and clandestine hit squads as well as Taylor does.” (Houston Press

Logan is on the desperate hunt for a man who is about to betray his country - and ignite a horrific new world war - in this pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times best-selling author and former special forces officer Brad Taylor

Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are enjoying a sunny vacation down under when they get disturbing news: their friend and colleague Clifford Delmonty is in serious trouble. While working as a contractor at an Australian F-35 facility, the former Taskforce member - callsign Dunkin - saw something he shouldn’t have, and now he’s on the run from Chinese agents. 

Pike and Jennifer soon discover that Dunkin’s attackers are a dangerous link to a much larger scheme that could launch a full-on conflict between China and Taiwan. In its quest for dominance, China is determined to reclaim Taiwan - a pivotal ally the United States has sworn to protect. Pike learns that the Chinese have a devious plan to bait the island nation into all-out war by destabilizing the government and manipulating an artificial intelligence defense system. 

As the threat reaches a boiling point, Pike alone realizes that what they’re seeing isn’t actually real. A soldier who has always been trained to fight and win, Pike must now track down and neutralize the missing man who holds the key. With the help of Jennifer, the Taskforce team, and a brave Taiwanese intelligence agent, he races to prevent a catastrophic conflict from consuming a whole region of the world.

excellent as usual

Brad Taylor cranks out another winner. With number 15 in the series he manages to again put the team to work on a timely, and believable mission. most authors this far into a series begin to get stale and predictable; Brad Taylor just makes it that much harder to stop turning pages!

Good espionage novel

AMERICAN TRAITOR is Book 16 in Brad Taylor's Pike Logan (and Jennifer Cahill) espionage series. The Taskforce is dealing with issues with the China-Taiwan-US relationship concerning a piece of US military hardware. The high point comes near the end when Taiwan launches a strike against mainland China that they believe is defensive.

Like all novels in the series chapters move back an forth between first person Pike Logan and third person. Until Book 14 Rich Orlow handled the first person narration and Henry Stozier did the third person. I preferred the two narrators, but Orlow does a nice job of narrating the entire book.

Very nicely done.

You left us hanging at the end! Your potential has two goals. The hundred meter goal maybe the mole, the five meter goal the illness that someone contracted.
Or vice versa, depends. Either way I'm interested in the next book regardless of how it goes. one of my favorite authors.

Count how many times narrator says “I said”

Take 90% of the “I said” out and this would be 4-5 stars. It got to the point where I had to turn it off....I don’t know if it’s in script or just the narrator but it’s obnoxious.

Taiwan a trigger point.

story was fine but the dialogue was amateurish and too often the story mixed up who was supposed to be where and when. needed careful editing.

I enjoyed it, some acronyms mispronounced

It was a good listen, well written. It did take a while in the beginning to get beyond setting the stage. An unexpected number of people died

How did pike get the gun from Adelaide to Sidney on a domestic flight?!?!

These books have always been pretty factual in how things are with security in other countries. But In this book somehow pike and Jennifer fly on a domestic flight in Australia with an illegally possessed pistol? Seems a bit of a reach.. get your shit together with reality...

From someone who really lives this life and also enjoys these books
