Hide and Seek: A Book Review

About The Book:
Amelia Lennon no longer wears a uniform or carries a weapon. An Army trained Foreign Affairs Officer, she’s negotiating a dispute with the Kyrgyzstan government that threatens to leave the U.S. without an airbase in that region. She traded her gun for the power of words, but now she needs both.

While following her government contact - Jildiz Oskonbaeva, the lawyer daughter of Kyrgyzstan’s president - Amelia witnesses an attempt to abduct her. She manages to prevent the kidnapping, but now the two women are on the run in a city that’s erupting into chaos.

Master Sergeant J.J. Bartley is the Special Operations team leader tasked to rescue Amelia and Jildiz. With two new members in his unit - one with a secret that could endanger everyone’s life - J.J. must soldier his unit through crazed mobs intent on overthrowing the government. Back home, his pregnant wife is misinformed that her husband and the team have been killed. But before this is over, Bartley will find out that’s the least of his problems.

My Review:

This is the first book of Maj (Ret) Jeff Struecker's books that I have read, and wow, what a book! With heart-thumping action from the get-go, you will be drawn into the world of the military and the relationship between powerful countries like the United States, China and Russia. This is not your typical "men's only" military mystery though. Women will enjoy it too! I loved it. There were a ton of twists and turns, and without giving spoilers away, I will just say that my favorites characters where Amelia and Bartley. There is a little bit of everything in this book for all readers, it is well easy to read and though a big book (at almost 400 pages) it is a quick read. You will not want to put this book down. Although it includes characters from previous Struecker books, it is strong enough to be a stand alone novel, and you won't be lost without reading the other ones. I do believe I have found a new favorite genre of Christian literature to enjoy and embrace. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
