Retired Special Forces officer Brad Taylor's thrilling new short story sets Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill on a hunt for an ancient Mayan temple and reveals the origin of their archaeological company, the cover for their clandestine work with the Taskforce.

Deep in the Maya Biosphere Reserve, a huge protected tract of rain forest in northern Guatemala, lies the mythical Temple of Priests. Only one man knew of the temple's location, but he was killed before he could relay the coordinates. Now, newly reinstated Taskforce operator Pike Logan has the grid location of the ruins, and he's convinced Jennifer Cahill to travel to Guatemala in search of the Mayan temple her uncle died trying to find.

But Pike and Jennifer are not the only ones heading into the rain forest in search of hidden treasure. A Canadian mining company is determined to explore the Biosphere for rare earth metals, even if it means destroying the way of life for local villagers. When they learn that Pike and Jennifer's impending historical discovery might thwart their plans, it sets the newly minted team on a crash course with a group of men hellbent on getting their hands on the prize, no matter the cost.

Includes an excerpt from Brad Taylor's latest Pike Logan thriller, Daughter of War.

    Great backstory. It could have been its own book. Great characters and nonstop action.

    Do not read this garbage if u have a brain & love Dogs. I will NEVER waste my $ on this writer again. Killing humans in a action book is accepted but Not an innocent dog. Truly disappointing to have Hero, Pike Logan, loose his status & I wish the dog Had bitten him in the a_ _! One star shows on this rating only due to not able to choose A MINUS ZERO.
