If Brad Taylor isn’t the hardest working author in the military thriller genre, I don’t know who is. He’s the only guy writing these types of novels that consistently delivers two books a year. Even more impressive, he seems to only be getting better and better at his craft, which should scare the daylights out of his competition.
Taylor’s second release of 2015, The Forgotten Soldier, comes out on December 29. Any thoughts that the former Delta operator turned New York Times bestselling author would take a break and simply enjoy his incredibly successful run were put to rest with the announcement of his tenth novel: Ghosts of War!
Equally as impressive, there seems to already be a plot description and cover art for Ghosts of War, which Amazon says will be released on June 28, 2016. Check it out:
The Taskforce has stopped countless terrorist threats across the globe, operating outside of US law to prevent the death of innocents. But now, along the fault lines of the old Iron Curtain, the danger is far greater than a single attack. With Russia expanding its influence from Syria to the Baltic States, the Taskforce is placed on stand-down because of the actions of one rogue operator.
Meanwhile, Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill travel to Poland, hired to verify artifacts hidden for decades in a fabled Nazi gold train, only to find themselves caught amid growing tensions between East and West. A Russian incursion into Belarus under the facade of self-defense is trumped by a horrific attack against the United States, driving NATO to mobilize even as it tries to determine who is behind the strike.
On the brink of war, Pike and Jennifer discover that there is a separate agenda in play, one determined to force a showdown between NATO and Russia. With time running out, and America demanding vengeance, Pike and Jennifer race to unravel the mystery before a point of no return is reached. Unbeknownst to them, there is another attack on the way.
One that will guarantee World War III.
Good grief, Mr. Taylor is just showing off now! While most authors are struggling to write one good book a year, he’s rattling them off nonstop and making it look easy in the process.
There’s not many men on the planet I respect more than Brad Taylor, so I’m thrilled to see how successful he’s become in recent years. Kudos, Brad. Keep up the good work!
