Brad Taylor—the New York Times-bestselling author of the Pike Logan series and former Special Ops officer—delivers an action-packed international thriller involving a plot to bring about the end of the world and a serial killer on the loose in the heart of Rome in END OF DAYS: A Pike Logan Novel.
Stuck at home in Charleston for months because of COVID, Taskforce operators Nephilim “Pike” Logan and Jennifer Cahill finally have the chance to get married in a lavish ceremony in front of family and friends. But their plans suddenly change when two trusted Israeli allies, Shoshana and Aaron, show up at the rehearsal with an urgent request. A former head of the Mossad, Israel’s equivalent of the CIA, has apparently been assassinated by an Iranian-backed terrorist group while paragliding in Switzerland. But Shoshana and Aaron doubt that theory, and want the Taskforce to help identify the true culprits. Beyond that, Shoshana—a highly skilled but volatile assassin with uncanny instincts, who was mentored by the murdered intelligence chief—is determined to make them pay the ultimate price.
The Taskforce, an ultra-secret Special Ops group, is designed to carry out covert missions vital to US national security. With a direct line to the president, the organization is authorized to blow past bureaucratic boundaries and agency turf wars to do whatever it takes to get the job done, including the taking of human life if necessary. This mission, however, is a stretch even for Pike and his team of unconventional operators, starting with their need to travel on Israeli passports in order to evade COVID restrictions as they race the clock to stop World War III.
When two American diplomats are assassinated in Italy, Iran’s fingerprints seem to be all over those hits, too. But as Pike and his team dig deeper at Shoshana’s insistence, they discover something truly stunning. A group of rogue operators within the Knights of Malta, a centuries-old Catholic charitable organization with roots in the Crusades seems intent on fulfilling an ancient biblical prophecy known as the End of Days. Meanwhile, a twisted serial killer is murdering women in Rome, and a female Italian police investigator is close on his heels.
As international tensions mount, hawks in Israel, Iran, and the United States push for war. Yet everything that has happened so far is just a prelude to what has been planned by Garrett, the leader of the renegade Knights of Malta unit, who like Pike is a former U.S. Army Special Forces officer. Israel’s prime minister is preparing to welcome dozens of foreign dignitaries, including the Grand Master of the Knights of Malta and American Christians who fervently believe in the End of Days prophecy, at the place known in the Bible as Armageddon—the scene of the final battle between good and evil before the Day of Judgment. If Garrett succeeds, there will be a deadly strike on that meeting unless Pike and his team can stop it.
