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.

American Traitor

It was slow moving, overlapping stories and as close to a knockoff of a Jack Ryan Novel as you could get without copyright infringement.
I will not read/listen to a Brad Taylor book again

Predictive....Worst Of The Series

Too many places where the plot is easily predictable. Logan made to look like a Moron by his lack of direction, assuming the mission is ended when it makes no sense.

Loved it!

This is my first Pike Logan novel but it will not be my last. I really couldn't put it down.

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.

Disappointing, Unsatisfying

First off, I love this series, but this book just isn't in the same league as the previous books. One of the things I really enjoy about the Pike Logan series is the cast of characters. In some books they play a larger roll and we learn more about them, in this book they are almost one dimensional, it is easy to feel no connection to them. If I hadn't listened to all the other books in series I may not have cared at all about the supporting characters. The book also feels unfinished. There are more than a few threads that are left hanging including the end of the book which feels incomplete. * Spoiler alert * I wanted to SCREAM when I heard/read that there was another couple/duo (male - female) spy team with an unhinged female. Really Bard you couldn't think of any other duo combination? I liked when you introduced the Israeli couple, they were interesting and unique but when you repeated the pattern here, is there a lack of imagination? I hope there is a next book and I hope it is more like some of the earlier books with more interaction and character development of the supporting characters, fewer untied story lines ... Thanks for writing the series.

Too much detail

A good story but too much detail and switching between characters and plots. Took too long to resolve

Predictable and glorified killing

A totally implausible story with mindless and glorified killing and violence- about the least subtle and tedious book I’ve listened to in years
