Matthew Betley Unveils the Cover for His Next Logan West Thriller, ‘Rules of War’

If you’re not already signed up for Matthew Betley’s official newsletter, you should be.

Those already on the author’s mailing list were treated to an exclusive early cover reveal for his fourth Logan West novel, Rules of War, in stores next summer.  

Just before the release, I reached out to Betley to ask about the cover art for Logan West #4, who told me “the cover for Rules of War perfectly illustrates what the fourth book in the Logan West series is – a non-stop, action-packed, dynamic, roller coaster full of things I have not done in previous books. Strap in, buckle up, and enjoy the very wild ride!”

See the cover art, along with the hard-hitting plot details, below. 


Rules of War

Following the events of the “fast, hard-hitting, and impossible to put down” (The Real Book Spy) Field of Valor, Logan West continues his mission to bring America’s traitorous vice president to justice, even as the clandestine group pulling all the strings makes one last deadly bid to regain their power.

The vice president of the United States is missing, the director of the National Security Agency has been assassinated, and the mysterious organization orchestrating global instability is in tatters. While John Quick recovers from a gunshot wound that nearly killed him, Logan West is on the hunt to bring the vice president back to the US to face justice for his treason. The final stakes have never been higher and Logan and his task force are left with little to no options. Will it be this warrior’s end?
