Retired Delta Force commander Brad Taylor returns with the fifth propulsive thriller in his New York Times bestselling Pike Logan series.

Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are used to putting their lives at risk, but in The Polaris Protocol it's Jennifer's brother and countless more innocents who face unfathomable violence and bloodshed.

Pike and Jennifer are in Turkmenistan with the Taskforce--a top-secret antiterrorist unit that operates outside US law--when Jennifer gets a call from her brother, Jack. Working on an investigative report into the Mexican drug cartels, Jack Cahill has unknowingly gotten caught between two rival groups. His desperate call to his sister is his last before he's kidnapped.

In their efforts to rescue Jack, Pike and Jennifer uncover a plot much more insidious than illegal drug trafficking--the cartel that put a target on Jack's back has discovered a GPS hack with the power to effectively debilitate the United States. The hack allows a user to send false GPS signals, making it possible to manipulate everything from traffic signals and banking wire transfers to cruise missiles, but only while the system's loophole remains in place.

With the GPS hack about to be exploited and Jack's life at stake, Jennifer and Pike must find a way to infiltrate the cartel's inner circle and eliminate the impending threat. The price of failure, for both the Taskforce and the country, is higher than ever.

Standard Brad Taylor (Pike character) novel...I preferred his previous novels, and felt his cartel villains were somewhat "over the top".

Once again a fast paced, kick-butt action and intricate plot by Taylor. This is #5 in the series and i just learned #6, "Days of Rage", is due out in July. I can't wait!

They trust technology over men, and this is the way to defeat them.
