Bo Rider is undercover at a scientific convention in London to secretly recruit potential spies for the U.S. He finds an unattended briefcase and discovers some interesting information. The wife of the owner of the briefcase makes trouble for Bo and he barely escapes legal trouble. Bo is also busy undercover as an Army serviceman, dealing with a Russian military man who is supplying Bo with secret information about Russias dealings with Iran. Can Bo trust his informants word? While undercover, he meets and begins to work with a Mossad agent. After an attack of severe flu, Bo returns to the U.S. only to discover he didnt have the flu, but some type of new strain that in most cases is deadly. Bo must stop the scientist who has created this deadly flu strain before it is released, killing millions.
The title of this story has many different applications, but I want readers to enjoy that discovery for themselves. Just know that it is worth the time spent reading this suspenseful story. The authors really know their subject so I always learn something when I read their books, which I value. The faith of Wally and Liberty especially stood out to me. During horrific experiences in their young lives, they looked to God and didnt waver in their faith in Him. They were truly inspirational. It is always a treat to visit with familiar characters too such as Bo, Griff and Eva. I very much like the tangent in the story of Griffs life-changing discovery. I look forward to this trios next adventure as their stories are always entertaining.
I like Rosenberg, Grisham, and Dee Henderson, and now I have new favorites - Diane and David Munson. It is obvious from their suspense writing and their backgrounds in the law/law enforcement, that they truly lived lives of suspense. Fast paced and realistic, with just enough romance to keep me turning the pages. Redeeming Liberty was recommended to me by a friend who knows I enjoy Christian suspense featuring current events. I'd just finished this thriller when what the Munsons wrote about was revealed as a recent dangerous weapon on the news! I can't wait to read their next release.
Communication or lack of.. is reality based as are the plots and scenes.
The character's relationships and inner conflicts were deftly illustrated and blended well within the plot.
Vivid descriptions of the world travel make it real. However the vivid descriptions of the lack of personal time, privacy and home life, lack of sleep and everything the agents give up to protect the country, the world and those they love and the real story and make this a story to read more than once.
America, Africa, and the Middle East are woven together in the Diane and David Munson's web of international intrigue, danger, and exploits. Don't let the slower paced opening of Redeeming Liberty fool you, this novel is gearing up for full-throttle adventure, entwining the stories of Sudanese exiles with a federal parole officer and FBI and CIA operatives and their efforts to keep citizens safe, not only in the U.S. but around the world.
Will falsely accused Wally, a former "lost boy" from Sudan, be cleared of robbery charges? Will Liberty, his girlfriend who was kidnapped from their homeland, be found and freed or remain a slave? Can the terrorists' production of IEDs and even-more-deadly "disease" explosives be halted or at least stalled?
Join the wild ride behind the scenes as unsung heroes fight for their lives and those of the rest of the world. Romance and struggles with faith add depth to this suspenseful thriller. Several of the characters star in other books by the Munsons, but each novel stands firmly on its own. I recommend them.
