Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig

Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig

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?

My Thoughts:
Ronie Kendig whips readers into a frenzied plot of historical legend, deadly mystery, and intense military action in Book One of The Tox Files. The pace slows just enough to allow you to breathe before the plot takes another adrenaline pumping twist driving you to push the pages as fast as you can handle. The collection of characters (just to name a few) include: a disenchanted archaeologist, a wizened professor, a loyal tactical team, deception expert, and a God-fearing Nigerian who wields a pair of kali sticks almost as fast as he wields spiritual truth to save a life. This story is about relationships as much as it is about the action-packed mission of saving the world. Ronie Kendig knows how to deliver deep characters who personify authenticity in their strengths and weakness. Each character singularly adds flavor to the story but as a whole the collective group is what brings these pages to life.

Ronie Kendig has a penchant for military themed novels but fans will be impressed with the historical theme in Conspiracy of Silence. Drawing on detailed research that spans across centuries, continents, religions, and cultures, fans of Dan Brown or Joel C. Rosenberg will find it difficult not to include Ms. Kendig among their equal.
