ABOUT THE DEVIL’S RANSOM: Conducting a routine cover development trip to Tajikistan, Pike and Jennifer learn that Afghanistan has fallen, and a man that has done more for the United States in Afghanistan than anyone else is in danger and on the run. They must extract him before it’s too late. During the extraction, Pike collides headlong into a broader mystery: His covert company, along with every other entity in the Taskforce, has been hit with a ransomware attack, and it looks like the Taliban is behind the hack. Given the order to track down the hackers, Pike uncovers a much larger and more dangerous plot than a simple attack on his organization. That hack was just a test-run, and the real one is coming soon, created by a former NSA specialist in the U.S. government. The enemy wants to return to the bipolar world of the Cold War, the turncoat has cloaked his attack behind hackers from Serbia and Russia, and if successful, his target will alter the balance of power on the global stage. So far, the specialist has remained one step ahead of the Taskforce, but he has just made one massive mistake: hitting Pike Logan.
