Special Forces operator Salvatore “Falcon” Russo vowed to never again speak to or trust Lieutenant Cassandra Walker after a tragedy four years ago. But as Raptor closes in on the cyber terrorists responsible for killing two of their own, Sal must put his life-and the lives of his teammates-in her hands. Despite his anger, Cassie is ill-prepared for his resistance and the fallout when she must protect the one asset who can end the attacks. As allies become enemies and hostiles become unlikely partners, Raptor fights for its very existence.
Ronie Kendig’s books are always far from ordinary but Falcon, the final heart-wrenching instalment in her Quiet Professional series, taps the word extraordinary with ease. Drenching the reader in the sights and sounds of battles in the streets and towns of Kandahar, Kendig also lays bare the internal warfare in the heart and mind of a warrior. Salvatore “Falcon” Russo, the pivotal character in this story that is unrelenting in its grip on your emotions, faces danger on all fronts as he and his team attempt to unearth an insidious plot to destroy US military communications. The outcome for beloved characters from Raptor 6 and Hawk is never certain, an aspect of Ronie’s writing that is both desired and detested! Her authentic storytelling unfolds like a movie thriller that you can’t tear your eyes from and ramps up your pulse. Uncompromising action, adventure, and tumultuous twists accompany camaraderie, heartache, devotion, and yearning, in a story that will hold you in its grip long after the last words are read. I simply can’t get enough of Ronie’s trademark storytelling.
