While Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill prepare to join their team on a counter-terrorist mission in the triple frontier - the lawless tri-border region where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay meet - they are targeted in Charleston, South Carolina. A vicious explosion kills a friend, and the perpetrators have set it up to look like an accident. Forged in combat, the Russians are the equal of anything the Taskforce has encountered before, but they make a mistake in attacking Pike's team, because Pike has a couple of elite Israeli assassins of his own. And Pike will stop at nothing to protect his family.

It is nice to see something written by someone who actually knows something about firearms and about actually fighting. A bit too much unreal jujitsu, but I do understand the bias one can have for their own favored style. AND the application of real-world firearms. Gun nuts should enjoy it. And "gamers" should as well. Gives some reality to their choice of weapons when they choose between "missions". The shooting is real, the fighting is mostly real, and they're really are bad guys in this world. On thousands of street corners in cities across the country there are real ones selling young girls' bodies and the drugs that enslave them And there really are pseudo-liberal goofball politicians running most things politically. :-)

But it is fun reading and that IS what the reading is for. Taylor certainly does a more realistic job than the Ludlum type of book where you KNOW it is being written by someone who is a great writer but someone who really does not understand either guns OR personal combat. Perhaps not the best from Taylor but certainly worth escapism reading.

A cross between a comic book and a B-movie with macho, macho characters on both sides. Many melodramatic moments, lots of action, some of it believable and interdictions throughout. Someone should have interdicted me at the library before I got to the checkout.

I gave it 3 1/2 stars out of pity. He's done better.

Brad Taylor is still turning out good, thriller novels with well-crafted, interesting plots. In HUNTER KILLER, the GRS Task Force is dealing with threats to the team at home (Charleston SC) and some nasty election interference in Brazil, as well as the usual bureaucratic interference from DC. This is the usual non-stop action stuff that Taylor writes. The novel presents and interesting twist though. There is a fair amount of discussion among the team members about the level of violence they engage in and its effect on their psyche's and each others. There is some push back aimed at setting some boundaries for the violence, which forces some discussion about how this applies in the kind of undercover work they engage in against vile enemies who have no such boundaries. It definitely seems there is some movement in their thinking towards a reduction in violence whenever possible. Unusual to see this kind of dialogue in thriller novels such as this - and welcome from my point of view.
