Book Review: The Kremlin Conspiracy: A Novel, by Joel C. Rosenberg
From the very first sentence, “Louisa Sherbatov had just turned six, but she would never turn seven,” author Joel C. Rosenberg pulls the reader into his latest novel, The Kremlin Conspiracy, and doesn’t let go until the final page.
The book focuses on two main character. Oleg Kraskin is the son-in-law and close advisor to the Russian president. Marcus Ryker is a dedicated Marine and former member of the United States Secret Service. Initially, neither one is aware of the other one nor how much they have in common. But as Rosenberg weaves the details of the story together, their lives intertwine as they work together to try and change history.
Like many of the author’s books, this one describes event that could easily have been grabbed from the front page of an international newspaper. Russia’s president is a rising czar who wants to restore the glories of the former Soviet Union and will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
Like the author’s other books, he weaves in characters with a distinctive Christian witness and incorporates the gospel in an easy, nonthreatening manner. A fascinating, entertaining book you won’t be able to put down.
