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.
Aspiring authors should take note of Rosenbergs deftly plotted story and first-rate character developmenthe puts on a clinic for how to introduce and bring along new characters. Some readers, especially early on, may find the plot moving a tad slower than his past books, but thats clearly by design. Rosenberg meticulously builds the necessary foundation for later on, and, when you least expect it, he yanks the rug out from underneath you.
This is Joel C. Rosenberg at his absolute best, proving yet again that hes one of the premier novelists working in the genre today.
With his knack for writing prophetic fiction, those who want an early glimpse at what the world might look like in the very near future should pick up Joel Rosenbergs latest thriller. . . . Strap in and hold on tight, The Kremlin Conspiracy is a high-octane thriller that will stun readers and stay with them long after they turn the final page.
Bestseller Rosenberg (The Third Target) provides Tom Clancy fans with plenty of red meat in this fast-paced political thriller. In the near future, attorney Oleg Kraskin has become a trusted adviser to his Putinlike father-in-law, Russian president Aleksandr Luganov. Olegs rise is paralleled by that of Marcus Ryker, whose valor under fire as a Marine in Afghanistan led to his becoming a Secret Service agent. After Marcus helps thwart a terrorist attack on the White House, hes promoted to the U.S. presidents personal detail. But when Marcuss wife and son are killed in a robbery, he takes a break from working for the government. Meanwhile, Luganov, who has no qualms about using nuclear weapons and is chummy with the erratic head of North Korea, finalizes plans to invade the three Baltic statesEstonia, Latvia, and Lithuaniaand reincorporate them into Russia. Oleg and Marcus each turn out to have a vital part to play in shaping how Luganovs grandiose schemes end. Although plausibility isnt at a premium, readers who like escapist suspense will be satisfied.
Luvjoy5 Stars Out Of 5So Hard to Put DownApril 20, 2018LuvjoyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0A friend and I read this together, and it was so tense, edge-of-your-seat and spine-tingling. What is really scary is how true-to-life it is. Could this really happen? I pray not, but it is really a great read!!
boldpamelaMaineAge: Over 65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Personal Political Undertones PrevailApril 17, 2018boldpamelaMaineAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I have read all of Joel Rosenberg's books, and have not been able to put his books down! The thrillers were well-written and well-documented, edge-of-the-seat reading from cover to cover. The Auschwitz Escape was also an escape from his usual style, and was a thoroughly engaging, historical novel written with accuracy and precision. However, The Kremlin Conspiracy did not capture my attention, as it took over three weeks to slog through, conquering the tedium, only to discover the usual predictable action occurring at the end. There seems to be an undertone of political criticism, a comparison to the current US Administration, which represents Rosenberg's personal opinion, expressed before the election in 2016, which permeates the book. As I finished the book today, there was certainly no sense of anticipation for his next novel...
tickmenotKansas CityGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Enemy of My Enemy....April 15, 2018tickmenotKansas CityGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Two men, one American and one Russian, are unaware their lives are on a collision course with each other. Despite not knowing one another, different occurrences in the lives of each man brings the intersection closer. Marcus Ryker is a good-looking guy from Colorado who marries his high school sweetheart and starts a family. He is also an American Patriot and a dare-devil. Marcus has steadily advanced from an active combat solider to one of the members of the Secret Service guarding The President.
Oleg Kraskin has two loves, Marina and his native land, Mother Russia. When he marries Marina, he becomes the son-in-law of The President of Russia, Aleksandr Luganov. The president creates a job for Oleg, and as time goes on, Oleg is exposed to an increasing amount of secret information. Eventually he is trusted enough to be exposed to most of The State secrets.
Because of this, Oleg learns his father-in-laws plans for Russia will cause the needless deaths of many of his countrymen. While the rest of the world is tricked into believing Luganov will help decrease weapons of mass destruction, especially in North Korea, Luganov plans just the opposite. Since Oleg knows the truth, he is frantic to prevent a possible nuclear war. But how can he do this without his family or himself being hurt?
This page-turner is a fast-moving story of intrigue that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The reader will be taken to the inside of the Kremlin, the White House, and the inner workings of a Senator--who would like to be the next president. In the midst of it all, Marcus and Oleg meet. At the time, they are unaware of the importance that meeting will be to their future, as well as, the worlds.
The author writes a very realistic story, one that will cause the reader to think, this might happen! The characters are shown in both their best and worst lights, and are believable. Even though some of the story takes place in dangerous or highly tense situations, the story is clean, wholesome, and written from a Christian point of view. This is the first installment of a series, with a bit of a cliff-hanger ending. I recommend this 5-star book to anyone who enjoys political intrigue, suspense or well-written fiction.

Exciting Read!April 7, 2018LorettaDallas, GeorgiaAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It is so interesting to watch the news, and be reading Joel C. Rosenberg's novel at the same time. It is like all the "puzzle pieces" are coming together to usher in Armageddon and Jesus Christ's return. I am a student of Eschatology (End Time Prophecy), and this book is right on time with the political, social upheaval of our times.
I've been a fan of Joel C. Rosenberg's books for many years, and couldn't hardly wait for this novel to be released. An action packed, plot twisting read! Well developed characters, and the build up in the suspense is amazing, each page that is turned is more intense.
I won't do a "spoiler alert", but what's going on in the news, even this week matches the novel. I am blown away. I received this book from Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for an honest review, and honestly, I highly recommend this book! If you like mystery, suspense, espionage thrillers, you'll love this book.
