This is book number 4 in the Garrett Kohl series.


In the fourth pulse-pounding thriller in the series, DEA Special Agent Garrett Kohl must find out what’s truly tainted in the energy industry and uncover a deep-rooted plot in order to protect his new business, beloved ranch, and family. Perfect for fans of C. J. Box and Jack Carr.

On leave from the DEA, Garrett Kohl is ready to settle down and build a stable foundation for his family. But that’s easier said than done. In order to give his girlfriend, Lacey, and adopted son, Asadi, the life they deserve, and get out from under crippling debt, some risks have to be taken. And shocking alliances have to be formed.

First, Garrett partners with an old nemesis to form his new energy venture: Savage Exploration. Then his estranged, aloof sister, Grace, reemerges, keen on brokering a contract to connect the Kohl Ranch energy play to a pipeline on the Texas coast. But the company’s earlier success is endangered when an explosion at a nearby natural gas plant injures several workers. Garrett begins to suspect foul play and embarks on a winding investigation, teaming up with his old war buddy, Kai Stoddard, and reaching out to his CIA contacts, uncovering a sinister conspiracy overseas.

From an ex-CIA intelligence officer and consultant for the Department of Defense, this exhilarating thriller follows a man’s turbulent journey to fight for his family and hold on to the land that he calls home, culminating in an explosive final showdown that he never could have expected.

Praise For…

“Taylor Moore gives his readers an insider’s glimpse into a world of covert operations that few novelists can match. Ricochet has it all: great writing, perfect plotting, quick pacing, and a cast of high-octane characters that brings it all together. An extraordinary accomplishment from a relatively new author with a fresh voice and a new way of looking at the age-old struggle between good and evil.” — Nelson Demille, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Wild and gritty as a West Texas road, Ricochet snaps with action and unbridled authenticity. Taylor Moore is the real deal. I’ll read anything he writes.”  — Marc Cameron, New York Times bestselling author of Breakneck

“Mix Craig Johnson’s Longmire and Lee Child’s Reacher with a humongous dollop of pure, high-powered originality and you get Taylor Moore’s Garrett Kohl. It’s the mark of a great thriller when you can’t put it down until the end. Ricochet not only takes care of that, but leaves you breathlessly hanging on for Kohl’s next adventure.” — Jerome Priesler, New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy’s Power Plays series

“Moore may not have invented the modern take on this tried and true genre, but he displays a mastery of it here on par with Lee Child’s similarly protective figure, Jack Reacher. To that, he adds a dash of Brad Thor to the mix in fashioning a tale that will leave you longing for the next entry in the series.” — BookTrib

“A slam-bang, can’t-miss reading adventure that reminds everyone that everything—even the action—really is bigger in Texas. Moore’s gonna be a star. . . if you aren’t already reading him, start.”  — The Real Book Spy
