Book Review: Ring of Fire by Brad Taylor

Ring of Fire by Brad Taylor 
Okay, I am not the target audience for this book. This book (the eleventh featuring ex-special forces operator Pike Logan) centers around a terrorist cell looking to use the 15th anniversary of 9/11 to launch a massive strike against he United States. Pike Logan and his extra-governmental task force are the only ones who can stop him.

I made it about 100 pages in. While I’ve enjoyed thrillers in the style of the Dirk Pitt books by Clive Cussler  (am I dating myself?) or the Joe Ledger books by Jonathan Maberry, those series have a decent amount of escapism built in. I certainly don’t consider reading about the next 9/11 to be fun.

Add in a healthy dose of casual sexism, subpar banter, and slightly cardboardy characters, and I felt it better to leave it lie. Now, if you typically like military thrillers, this book might be more I  your wheelhouse. If you’ve liked the previous books in the series, you will probably like this one. Unfortunately,  Ring of Fire just wasn’t for me.

A free copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Ring of Fire will be available for purchase on January 17th, 2017.
