From the New York Times bestselling author of The Kremlin Conspiracy comes this latest international thriller about a terrifying nuclear alliance among three world powers--Russia, Iran, and North Korea--and the man who must halt their deadly strategy. Shot out of the air in enemy territory in the middle of the greatest international crisis since the end of the Cold War, former U.S. Secret Service agent Marcus Ryker finds himself facing an impossible task. Not only does he have to somehow elude detection and capture by Russian special forces, but he must convince his own government to grant safe harbor to the one man responsible for the global mayhem--Russian double agent and assassin Oleg Kraskin. While frantically negotiating with his contacts in the White House, Marcus learns that the unstable North Korean regime plans to use the international chaos as a smokescreen to sell nuclear weapons to Iran. With the fate of the entire free world on the line, Marcus makes a deal with the U.S. government--he will go back to work as an international operative and track down the WMDs before they end up in the hands of those with the determination and the means to use them. Marcus and Oleg worked together once before to avert a world war. Can they now find a way to stop world destruction?… (mer)

This is the 2nd in a series, by Rosenberg, featuring Marcus Ryker. Book # 1 [b:The Kremlin Conspiracy|35620754|The Kremlin Conspiracy|Joel C. Rosenberg|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1499488442l/35620754._SY75_.jpg|57043321] left us with Marcus on a mission to bring in a Russian defector. Book # 2 picks up as Marcus and his "package" are trying to get out.

[a: Rosenberg|221833|Joel C. Rosenberg|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1314284800p2/221833.jpg] is labeled as a Christian fiction writer. Although his characters are always people of deep faith, the Christian aspect is never the main plot. This book had a bit more "in your face" religion, but I was able to get around it and enjoy the main story. It was a fast paced, gripping tale that I found hard to put down.

Espionage, Mid-East conflict, Russian bad guys and an all around good guy, Marcus. What else could you ask for? If you have never tried Rosenberg and the thriller genre is one you enjoy, I recommend you give him a try. ( )

The first Marcus Ryker book The Kremlin Conspiracy ends with assassination of the Russian President by a Russian patriot convinced a world war was about to start. This sequel begins with Marcus, the assassin and a CIA agent (as pilot) trying to escape Moscow in a Gulfstream jet, parachuting to safety before being shot down by scrambled Russian fighters. As they are chased around the countryside, they obtain critical information about North Korea's acquisition of twenty Russian nuclear warheads to be situated on North Korea's new long-range missiles. Even worse is North Korea's plans to sell five of them to Iran for an enormous sum, provided by the U.S. as incentive for denuclearization. The U.S. is afraid to help these fugitives, and equally afraid not to help.

A fast-paced thriller in the genre of regional conflicts, with the potential to escalate to world war. Finally, there seems to be a worthy successor to the fine thrillers of Larry Bond.

Fun thriller, kept me on edge from Russia to D.C. to North Korea and eventually East China Sea. Does Rosenberg have something against the US Navy SEAL?
He had two SEAL team commanders killed and a dozen more. The worst part was to have four SEAL Team six dead for sticking their head through a door, went down like flies didn't even had a chance to fire their weapons. THAT was pretty disappointing. ( )

In the second book of the Marcus triology, the escape of Jenny, Marcus and Oleg is further told. For a while it looks like the US has turned its back on Marcus but Marcus devises a plan that the US government has to accept.
Like the other one, Rosenberg does a great job weaving fiction with truth making this another realistic story. ( )

If you haven’t read the first book in the series, The Kremlin Conspiracy, you might be missing a thriller that continues in book two, The Persian Gamble. The action begins right where the first book left off, basically Marcus Ryker free falling out of plane in order to avoid being killed. Oh, there is more to it, but you have to read The Kremlin Conspiracy to catch up on what occurred before that moment aforementioned!
Marcus is a man who is in international airspace, running for his life while trying to save two people. The problem is that he has a host of people from more than one nation wanting to capture him, including the United States. Joel Rosenberg has again written a suspense-filled novel that pits many leaders from a host of different nations that are trying to dominate all other world powers.
Marcus Ryker is fighting time and government bureaucracy as he tries to thwart Iran from getting nuclear missiles from Russia. Plus, he has a man from Russia who knows who all the players are including North Korea, and where the nuclear warheads are heading. As I read, it seemed that there was someone from the United States who was leaking information that caused the demise of good men fighting evil.
There is tension throughout the book, and it would take pages just to fill you in while trying not to spoil your enjoyment of the story if you haven’t read the books. The story includes spies, armies, nuclear warheads, characters that are fighting evil and those who are perpetuating it! I mean it is thrills from beginning to end. I wondered often how, and if, Joel was going to save Marcus Ryker from demise in some of the most gripping conflicts in the book.
I hope you read The Kremlin Conspiracy and The Persian Gamble before the third book comes out in March 2020 titled, The Jerusalem Assassin.
