Oh my gosh, guys! I loved this military thriller with hints of romance. Ronie Kendig has made her place in fiction with novels that have high octane military action, and Conspiracy of Silence is a FANTASTIC addition. This novel has political overtones, Biblical archaeology threads, and the military, globe-jumping pacing. There is a fantastic, reluctant team that comes together to try to stop a global plague from spreading. This plague may have ties to the Old Testament, but it’s spreading and they have to find a way to stop it before it makes the Black Plague look like a small killer.
I love the action in Conspiracy of Silence. As someone who grew up reading Tom Clancy, it all strikes me as realistic, hard-hitting, and can’t-put-me-down intense. The whispers of romance were light enough to give a moment to breathe without feeling forced. And the team dynamic of the group was pitch perfect. They didn’t all get along all the time, but what team does? Conspiracy of Silence can also feel like you’re part of a globe trotting escapade as you race around the world with Tox’s team. I appreciated that this story stood alone, but also cannot wait for the next installment.
This book is perfect for those who love page-turning thrillers with heart.
Kendig Ratchets Up the Action in Her New Suspense Series!
Four years after a tragic mission decimated his career and his team, Cole “Tox” Russell is persona non grata to the United States. And that’s fine–he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed, Tox is lured back into action.
Partnered with FBI agent Kasey Cortes, Tox has to pull together a team to begin a globe-spanning search for answers–and a cure. As their quest leads them from continent to continent, it slowly becomes clear they’re not just fighting a plague–but battling against an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.
With time running out and opposition growing on every side, the key to everything may rest in an antique codex, the Crown of Jerusalem–but will Tox and his team be able to trust each other enough to break this century-spanning conspiracy of silence?
