This is the way the world ends.
Four years after a tragic mission decimated his team, Cole "Tox" Russell has been disavowed by 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.
Tox and his former Special Forces team regroup to work with FBI deception expert, Kasey Cortes, and fiery archaeologist, Tzivia Khalon, to search the globe for answers - and a cure. As the mission leads from one continent to another, it becomes clear they're not just fighting a plague but battling an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.
With time running out and the threat of a global pandemic rising, Tox and his team realize their sole chance might be to reach back through centuries of silence to find the only answer that can save them all.
In her signature style, Ronie Kendig has crafted a fast-paced thriller packed with strong heroes and heroines, danger, intrigue, and sparks of romance. Each chapter is filled with an onslaught of action as the characters race against time to stop a plague from wiping out civilization. I was a little surprised at the "doomsday" plot as it is a bit of a departure from Ronie's previous works that I've read, but it is nonetheless a story that captures the reader's attention from the first to the last page. I enjoyed the intertwining of Biblical themes and an Old Testament event as it made the situations and threats showcased in Conspiracy of Silence feel even more plausible. I'm excited that this book is a start of a new series, and will be eagerly looking forward to subsequent novels.
