Review of "The Kremlin Conspiracy" by Joel C. Rosenberg

In the opener of this new series from Mr. Rosenberg, he first peeks back at 1999 where the stage was being set for later potentially cataclysmic world events: the crowning of the new Russian President Aleksandr Luganov, the political rise of his future son-in-law lawyer Oleg Kraskin, and the back story of soon-to-be hero, Marcus Ryker.

Broken into seven "parts", we go back and forth between the point of view of not only our main characters, but also some short lived ones. It is an interesting way the author has chosen to paint the picture overall, and I really enjoyed this style of writing.

I'm finding it a little challenging to properly describe/review this book! There are many twists and turns that, if described, will completely spoil the many surprise elements in the book that the author has done so well.

I can say, the characters are compelling, the story line is believable and timely, and this book is of course, very well written. It also won't hurt to let you know that Lawyer Oleg becomes the Russian's President's right hand man and trusted confidant; Marcus becomes a Marine and eventually joins the Secret Service; and lots of people die. :/  I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of this story! Highly recommended!

I was provided a copy of this book by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
