Retired Delta Force Lieutenant Colonel Brad Taylor's first novel, One Rough Man, was lauded for its authenticity and riveting action. In this sequel, Special Forces Operative Pike Logan returns with an even more demanding assignment. He and his rather unusual partner, college student Jennifer Cahill, are going to use their bogus archeology business to intercept the transfer of the latest explosives technology to the Chinese.

Not the only one interested in getting his hands on the contraband, Logan is going to be in competition with a terrorist group who, if successful, will use the technology to launch an attack on the United States.

The successful completion of this counter-terrorist mission will stretch from the nation's capital through Asia and to a deserted airstrip in Egypt. Charged by the president to stop this potential attack using any means necessary, Pike, for the first time, has been authorized to use whatever force is necessary any place in the world; this means within his own country as well as off shore. Pike is also reminded to make sure he leaves no fingerprints in his wake!

Asked how he hopes the reader reacts to this high octane thriller, Brad Taylor said he wants him to look at the clock and say, 'Dammit, it's midnight! I need to get some sleep.' And then, he hopes the person keeps reading!
