Why did I read this? I read the first two books in the series and am continuing to read the adventures of Logan West, John Quick and the rest of the team.
There was an organization formed to do good when governments couldn’t or wouldn’t do what is right. That organization has fractured and part of it is more interested in amassing global power than doing what is right. Logan and his team cross paths with the organization and partially team with the good side and battle the bad guys. Some of those bad guys are members of the US government and are acting in a treasonous manner which motivates the President to authorize West and his team to track down the treasonous members. Those members of the government are entrenched through the various levels and branches of the government. Lots of action, covert and overt, plenty of plot twists and things to take your breath away while reminding you that the various members of the team are still human and not automons. This is also true of most of the bad guys. A few of the disposable mercenaries are one dimensional but the majority of the characters are three dimensional.
