End of Days by Brad Taylor


Pike Logan must stop a deranged killer hell-bent on igniting an international conflagration in End of Days, this explosive, action-packed thriller from New York Times bestselling author and former special forces officer, Brad Taylor.

When a paragliding trip over the picturesque mountains of Switzerland results in the brutal murder of the former head of Israeli intelligence, Mossad brings in terrorist hunters Aaron and Shoshana to investigate. But they’ll need help to find out who was behind the attack and what they’re planning next. Luckily, Aaron and Shoshana know exactly who to call.

Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill have been trapped in Charleston, South Carolina during COVID-19, so when Aaron and Shoshana show up on their doorstep with Israeli passports and a new mission, they jump at the chance to assist their friends. Some suspect that Keta’ib Hezbollah, an Iranian-funded militia group operating in Iraq, might be responsible for the “accidental” deaths of key members of the American and Israeli governments. But something isn’t adding up, and Pike, Jennifer, and the two Mossad operators are determined to find the real assassins before more people are cut down.

As they stumble upon the trail of a serial killer loose on the streets of Rome connected to the deaths and follow evidence leading to the exalted Knights of Malta, they must wade deep into the contentious religious and political fractures of Israel and the greater Middle East. It’s a dangerous world where fanatics and legitimate organizations exist side by side, and it’s up to the Taskforce to determine who is really pulling the strings. What they find could have disastrous consequences not only for them, but for the entire world…


Chapter 1

Long haired, olive skinned, and with a scraggly beard, Mustafa stood out from the other paragliders laying out their kit for the first flight of the morning. He was most definitely not of the Nordic stock who usually took tourists over the landscape of Interlaken, Switzerland. The men around him glanced curiously, but didn’t broach any questions, because Interlaken itself had become a hub of tourism for rich Arabs around the world. He was just a sign of the times as far as they were concerned, like the Halal menus and prayer mats offered at the hotels. The other pilots belonged to individual tour companies, and as such, knew each other well. Mustafa belonged to no company, but he’d taken the place of an individual operator who did.



“Taylor has fashioned a wondrously structured tale that’s complex without being confounding. Once deemed the heir apparent to W.E.B. Griffin, Taylor is now laying claim to being the American John le Carre, and his End of Days is a stunning triumph.”
Providence Journal
“All action from start to finish…. Another solid novel in the series.”
“A whirlwind of high adventure, and edge-of-your-seat plot twists… End of Days is an incredible tapestry of real world implications mixed with stellar story telling. Brad Taylor still has the touch.”
Mystery & Suspense Magazine

“Pike Logan returns with a thundering force… Taylor’s own military experience and insights bleed onto the page, but in an honest and
informative way that makes his story seem a little too real for comfort… Taylor [is] one of today’s finest storytellers.”
