Marcus Ryker married his high school sweetheart and served his country, first in the Marines, then in the Secret Service. After a terrible accident, he resigns, but he will soon be thrust into an operation to stop a self proclaimed Russian czar in The Kremlin Conspiracy.
There are several elements that make the book one that I recommend. It is full of action and fast paced. The major characters are described well and you can imagine their actions and personalities. The plot is easy to keep up with and fun to read.
Marcus has to deal with many hardships and losses. Though he falters some in dealing with them, he is determined to keep moving, and knows that God has something planned for him. His faith becomes more evident later in the book, and Marcus realizes the importance of being ready for eternity.
The story revolves around stopping a war, and the sacrifices that are made by both sides to further their cause. Though war and bloodshed are in the plot, it is handled in a way that keeps it from being gory.
Joel C. Rosenberg’s The Kremlin Conspiracy is a great book. The only issue I have with it is that when I would have to get back to my day, the end of each chapter made me want to keep reading. It was hard to put down, and I often would pick it back up after a short time.
I received a free copy of the book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
