In the eighth action – packed thriller in the New York Times bestselling Pike Logan series, ISIS, the most maniacal terrorist organization the modern world has ever seen, is poised to make their most audacious strike yet.
The United States has anticipated and averted countless attacks from terrorist groups—thanks in large part to the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce. But in The Insider Threat Book, a much more insidious evil is about to shatter the false sense of safety surrounding civilized nations. While world powers combat ISIS on the battlefield, a different threat is set in motion by the group—one that can’t be defeated by an airstrike. Off the radar of every Western intelligence organization, able to penetrate America or any European state, they intend to commit an act of unimaginable barbarity. Only Pike Logan and the Taskforce stand in the way of an attack no one anticipates, a grand deception that will wreak unthinkable chaos and reverberate throughout the Western world.
“Taylor is one of the best in the Vince Flynn line of military thrillers featuring covert operations, and he has the eerie ability to predict real-world headlines. And, somehow, he just keeps getting better and better.” —Booklist (starred review)
“Taylor absolutely knows his stuff, and he brings a notable accuracy to the events Pike goes through in defeating the enemy.” —Spencer Daily Reporter
“The alternating first- and third-person viewpoints offer up a splendidly intense plot peeled back layer by layer in the best tradition of Jack Higgins and Frederick Forsyth. The Insider Threat is a bit lighter on brawn than the last few efforts featuring Logan and Taskforce but heavier on brains, as Taylor stretches his talents beyond razor-sharp action to the honing of structure that solidifies his claim as heir apparent to the great Vince Flynn.” —Providence Journal
“The Insider Threat has nonstop action, and a very realistic plot. As with Tom Clancy novels he is able to write about serious dangers in a very suspenseful and intense way. Through well-defined characters and dialogue this novel is a page-turner that is a must read.” —Military Press
“Strongly recommended for the many fans of the “Logan” series and those who enjoy a breakneck pace… Taylor gives hope for a positive resolution to today’s hostilities.” —Library Journal
