"For years, the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce has worked in the shadows, anticipating and preventing attacks around the globe. Created to deal with a terrorist threat that shuns the civilized rule of law, it abandoned the same, operating outside of the US Constitution. Though wildly successful, it was rooted in a fear that the cure could be worse than the disease. And now that fear has come home. A Special Forces soldier is killed on an operation in Afghanistan, and complicit in the attack is a government official of an allied nation. While the US administration wants to forget the casualty, one Taskforce member will not. When he sets out to avenge his brother's death, his actions threaten to not only expose the Taskforce's activities but also to destroy a web of alliances against a greater evil. Pike Logan understands the desire but also the danger. Brought in to eliminate the risk, he's now forced to choose between his friend and the administration he's sworn to protect, while unbeknownst to anyone, the soldier's death is only the beginning." -- jacket

Very long and boring. Slow to get going, speeds up a little nearer the end, but you can skip pages and not miss a thing. Taylor must have been paid by the word for this disappointing effort. The Forgotten Soldier is forgettable.

slow, slow, and slower. Verbose to say the least. However, the more you read, the better it gets. Don't read word for word. Skip some of the BS and you want miss anything.

Enjoyed the book but wasn't quite as good as his other books!

Another Taylor novel with Pike and the crew. A few things hidden in this one. An eye on the future with current events sprinkled in. It's a quick read.
