Publisher's Summary

DEA Special Agent Garrett Kohl must rescue a CIA officer after she has been kidnapped in Texas by a brutal band of mercenaries in this pulse-pounding thriller for fans of C. J. Box.

Special Agent Garrett Kohl has just taken down a powerful and deadly cartel boss with the Texas Rangers when he finds trouble brewing back on his family’s homestead. A powerful energy consortium, Talon Corporation, has started an aggressive mining operation that threatens to destroy Garrett’s land, his family’s way of life, and everything they hold dear. To achieve its goals, Talon is flouting the law, bribing public officials, and meeting anyone who challenges it with extreme physical violence. When the Kohls themselves are attacked by Talon henchmen, Garrett goes on the offensive, embarking on an investigation that will hopefully rid the Texas High Plains of the intruders once and for all. 

Garrett soon discovers that the company’s roots reach into the deep dark hinterlands of countries across the globe. Using coercion and assassination levied by mercenaries made up of former Russian special operations forces, Talon and the Russians are working to covertly secure the world’s supply of rare earth minerals, leaving the U.S. vulnerable economically and militarily. The tit for tat exchange between Talon and the Kohls erupts into a full-scale war when Russian spy, Alexi Orlov, kidnaps Garrett’s friend and ally, CIA operative Kim Manning and holds her hostage. While Talon may be accustomed to getting its way around the world, they have yet to encounter this rare breed of warrior down in Texas—a soldier who will fight to the death to protect those that he loves.

Taylor Moore is a new author to be read...!

Audiobook Review – Firestorm – Taylor Moore
Author Taylor Moore’s follow up thriller – “Firestorm” to his debut novel “Down Range” was just as good if not better. Main character DEA Special Agent Garrett Kohl discovers that a powerful energy consortium, the Talon Corporation, has started an aggressive mining operation that threatens to destroy the Kohl’s Texas land and the company’s questionable roots spans into other countries around the world. Using intimidation, coercion and assassination imposed by a private army of former Russian special forces operators, Talon and the Russians are covertly working to secure the world’s supply of rare earth minerals, which will ultimately leave the U.S. vulnerable economically and militarily. The tit-for-tat exchange between Talon and the Kohls erupts into a full-scale war when a Russian spy kidnaps Kohl’s friend and coworker, a female CIA operative and holds her hostage. Talon and its Russian ‘goons’ underestimate the warrior that Garrett Kohl (a former Green Beret) is, and this is where the action begins. Kohl fights to protect his Texas land and those that he loves. This West Texas Panhandle adventure has realistic action, unrelenting suspense, a little romance, and an intense plot that kept me thrilled throughout its entirety. Moore’s diverse characterizations as well as the cultural lifestyles and Texas traditions really brought this story to life. I especially liked the Trip and Sanchez characters – both men of color – who were Kohl’s friends and cohorts in helping him take on Talon and the Russians. A fast-paced plot that was well written and skillfully told, Firestorm, Book 2 in the series, had no traces of a ‘sophomore jinx’ for author Taylor Moore. He penned a captivating and exciting second novel. Anytime an author can capture family dysfunction, danger, corporate and government corruption, violence of action, legal battles, love and romance, teamwork, and multicultural friendship into one easy to follow storyline, then that author is a pretty good storyteller. This was a really good listen! Excited for Book 3 of the Garrett Kohl series.
