If you are looking for heart pounding read this is one I’d recommend. It’s book one of a three book series written by Joel C. Rosenberg featuring the adventuresome Marcus Ryker; former marine and former secret service agent.
One of the things I like about Rosenberg’s work is his ability to incorporate important world events into his writing in an almost prophetic manner. The Kremlin Conspiracy is no exception. A quote from the book:
“America’s next president needs to understand that as troubled as the Middle East is and as volatile as North Korea remains, the most serious threat facing the United States–the truly existential threat–comes from Russia.”
The plot follows a reckless Soviet president bent on consolidating his power and restoring Russia to its former glory. His plan includes capturing and annexing former Soviet states into the Russian federation and adopting the dangerous countries of Iran and North Korea as strategic allies. Will his plan succeed?
As the plot thickens, a mole surfaces from deep within the Kremlin’s inner circle taking the story to even loftier heights. Can the information the mole entrusts to Ryker be trusted or is it meant to trap him?
Joel C. Rosenberg is one of my favorite authors. The second book in this series is due out March 2019. The Kremlin Conspiracy is a must read political thriller.
