Ready for a great, over-the-top, escapist read? Look no further than Brad Thor's sixteenth Pike Logan thriller, End of Days. You'll be glued to its pages. It opens on a paragliding trip in Swiss mountains by a former head of the Mossad. Unfortunately, other plans were made to assassinate him that day. The Israelis call on Aaron Bergman and his dark angel partner Shoshana to find the killers - no group has yet claimed responsibility.

Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill are rehearsing their wedding in Charleston, South Carolina, when Aaron and Shoshana ask for their help. They owe these friends a great deal, so agree. As their plans progress, readers are introduced to Garrett - a serial killer in Rome but also a marshal with the Knights of Malta and the man behind the paragliding death - with more assassinations planned.

Readers also meet Inspector Lia Vairo as she investigates Garrett's latest killing in Rome. She will have a key part to play later. Meanwhile, events unfold in Zurich, Bahrain, Syria, Lebanon and Jerusalem. Garrett plans to ignite war with Iran, and so begin the End of Days. Of course the good guys do stop him, but it's how they manage it that makes for a gripping read.
