#MBBRR Showcase: Brad Taylor's Newest HEART-STOPPING Thriller - THE FORGOTTEN SOLDIER @bradtaylorbooks

In New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor’s latest heart-stopping thriller, Pike Logan returns with his most dangerous and personal threat yet: a Taskforce Operator gone rogue.For years, the extralegal counterterrorist unit known as the Taskforce has worked in the shadows, anticipating and preventing attacks around the globe. Created to deal with a terrorist threat that shuns the civilized rule of law, it abandoned the same, operating outside of the US Constitution. Though wildly successful, it was rooted in a fear that the cure could be worse than the disease. 

And now that fear has come home. 

A Special Forces soldier is killed on an operation in Afghanistan, and complicit in the attack is a government official of an allied nation. While the US 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 destroy a web of alliances against a greater evil. Pike Logan understands the desire, but also the danger. Brought in to eliminate the risk, he's now forced to choose between his friend and the administration he's sworn to protect, while unbeknownst to either of them, the soldier's death is only the beginning....

Q.  If you could not be writer, what would you do/be?  
A. I'd still be in the military, which I loved.  I left to write. If it hadn't worked out, I'd be a full-time security consultant/independent military contractor, which I still do anyway.

Q. What would the story of your life be entitled?
A. The Miracle.

Q.  Which book would you love to take a weekend vacation inside of?  
A. Just finished The Martian.  If it were only a weekend vacation, it would be that one. Of course, if that were the case, then I'd have to bring Mark Watney back with me and it would ruin the book.

Q. Tell me something funny that happened while on a book tour or while promoting your book.
A. I had a man show up at a signing that I knew pretty well, but I completely had a brain-lock on his name.  Before the signing I talked to him and tried valiantly to get it to no avail.  I did my talk, and the people lined up.  Eventually, I knew he was going to put the book in front of me, and I'd have to admit I didn't remember his name - after he'd introduced himself to everyone as a "good friend" of mine.  The moment came, and I valiantly tried to recover: "Who should I make this out to?"  Answer: "Me".  No help.  I tried again, "Okay, but I don't want to screw this up.  How do you spell your name?"  Answer, with a look of disgust: "B-O-B."  At signings now, I don't care if you say you're my twin brother - you're getting a yellow sticky on your book with a name on it.
