About the Book:
Everything he learned to protect our president, he must use to take out theirs.
With an American president distracted by growing tensions in North Korea and Iran, an ominous new threat is emerging in Moscow. A czar is rising in the Kremlin, a Russian president feverishly consolidating power, silencing his opposition, and plotting a brazen and lightning-fast military strike that could rupture the NATO alliance and bring Washington and Moscow to the brink of nuclear war. But in his blind spot is the former U.S. Secret Service agent, Marcus Ryker, trained to protect but ready to kill to save his country.
A few words to describe this book- intense, action-packed, frightening. I add "frightening" to this list because it occurred to me that the war scenario that Rosenberg lays out could be happening right now and we wouldn't even know it. This edge-of-your-seat political/terrorist thriller compelled me to keep turning the pages! Marcus Ryker was a hero of heroes- calm under pressure, human in his heartache, and able to get the job done. The book ends with a cliffhanger which had me kicking my feet in protest screaming “what happens???!!!” I will have to be patient and wait for the next book in the series (grrrrr!). A hint of mystery mixed with shocking plot twists wins this book a spot on my “favorites” bookshelf!
