The Pike Logan thriller series by Brad Taylor is available to checkout at the library. In “The Forgotten Soldier,” a Special Forces soldier is killed in an operation in Afghanistan and complicit in the attack is a government official of an allied nation. While the U.S. Administration wants to forget the casualty one Taskforce member will not. When he sets out to avenge his brother’s death, his actions threaten to not only expose the Taskforce’s activities but also to destroy a web of alliances against a greater evil. Pike Logan is brought in to eliminate the risk, and now he’s forced to choose between his friend and the administration he has sworn to protect – the soldier’s death is only the beginning. Taylor’s books are also available in the Virtual Library, OneClick Digital and the 3M Cloud library.
