Ring of Fire
By: Brad Taylor
Publisher: Dutton

I am currently reading Brad Taylor’s latest book RING OF FIRE. I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book though an online giveaway Brad Taylor was doing through his Facebook fan page.

If you like authors like Alex Berenson, Daniel Silva, or Brad Thor, you will love Brad Taylor. Taylor is a retired Delta Force officer, and you can tell that his experience is put to use in the making of his books.

RING OF FIRE comes out January 10th, 2017. You should go ahead and buy this book now.

Let’s first see what the book is about from the publisher:

Fifteen years ago, in order to win a contract in the Kingdom, a desperate defense contractor used a shell company to provide a bribe to a wealthy Saudi businessman. Now a powerful player in the defense industry, he panics when the Panama Papers burst onto the public scene. Providing insight into the illicit deeds of offshore financing, they could prove his undoing.

To prevent the exposure of his illegal activities, he sets in motion a plan to interdict the next leak, but he is not the only one worried about spilled secrets. The data theft has left the Taskforce potentially vulnerable, leaving a trail that could compromise the unit. Back in the good graces of the new president, Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are ordered to interdict the next leak as well, in order to control the damage.

Unbeknownst to either group, the Saudi has been using the shell company to fund terrorists all over the world, and he has a spectacular attack planned, coinciding with the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11. The information Pike and Jennifer uncover will put them on the trail of the imminent threat, but it’s one that they might be unable to stop.

Called Ring of Fire, it will cause unimaginable destruction across the United States, and the ensuing chaos and terror will distract the Taskforce from a truth no one sees: Ring of Fire was only the beginning, and the danger is far from over.

I am over half way done with the book, and I am loving it so far. The book reads smoothly, and the action is well paced so far. I love seeing all the places the Taskforce travel to when hunting the terrorist cell.

There are multiple well defined plots going on at once that I can’t wait to see how they will all collide. The books also makes the readers think about their own opinion on Islam, and I think the author does a great job in providing differing views to the reader. I hope I get to see more of that as I continue to read the book.

I also enjoy how up to the date the book is, using the Panama Papers, Pokemon Go, and the recently declassified report on Saudi Arabia as part of the plot line.

I’ll be back with a full review once I have finished with the book.
