The Kremlin Conspiracy

Title:The Kremlin Conspiracy
Author: Joel Rosenberg
Pages: 480
Year: 2018
Publisher: Tyndale
My rating is 5+ out of 5 stars.
For me, Joel Rosenberg’s novels have been not just entertaining thrillers, but also thought provoking!If you haven’t read any of his writings, you truly are missing an author who weaves threads of various characters’ views along with action, intrigue and mystery to carry the reader away into a world full of suspense!
In the Kremlin Conspiracy, the author slowly introduces readers to the land of Russia, politics, military and the characters who inhabit the story that is beginning to be unveiled.The story flips from that to what is happening here in America to a man known as Marcus Ryker.He excels in military engagements and eventually ends up in the Secret Service.Markus also marries, begins a family and meets a man by the name of Oleg who he crosses paths with later, but I am getting ahead of myself. Plus, I can’t review everything or what would be left for the reader …

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
The wonderful joy of reading a story never gets old for me.In fact, there are many times one can find me scouring online retailers for my next book to read or add to my watchlist.Steve Berry’s novels are some of the ones I love getting lost in because he takes historical facts and weaves a riveting novel.At the end of his books, he kindly separates fact from fiction and sometimes I am amazed at what was real when I thought it was fiction.Sometimes I read the facts of a historical place, event or person and am astounded by what I didn’t know!
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a man I have admired for a very long time though there is much I am still learning about him, his life and his writings.Steve Berry portrays J. Edgar Hoover’s actions that involved Rev. King along with some interesting characters.What makes this Cotton Malone novel unique is that it goes back…

Stranded (Military Investigations)

Author: Debby Giusti
Pages: 224
Year: 2015
Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense
My rating 5 out of 5 stars.
The action and tension starts as soon as the reader opens the book!The main character is Colleen who is attempting to locate the person responsible for taking her sister’s life.While driving to meet a woman who says she has corroborating evidence, a dangerous storm is bearing down on the area and somehow the killer has located them both!

My rating 5 out of 5 stars.
One of the advantages of reading Love Inspired Suspense books, for me, is they are short enough to finish in a day and they are very entertaining to read!Another advantage is that even when in a series most of them can be read as stand alone.Debbi Giusti is a new author to me and writes with one foot in the military and another in the Amish community.Then, she weaves threads of her stories that connect both worlds.
In Plain Danger, the main character, Carrie York, arrives in a small Amish community to meet with her father’s lawyer to inherit a house and land.The hard part for Carrie is she wasn’t allowed to connect with her father when he was alive, and her mother told her things about her father that are turning out to be lies.Now, it seems that a killer thinks Carrie possesses a map that is supposed to lead to treasure buried on the land.
