I know when a book has the name of Ronie Kendig on the cover it will be a fast paced book with well developed characters and a lot of research put into it. Ms. Kendig's newest novel, Conspiracy of Silence is book one of her new series "The Tox Files" and as expected, it is fast paced and full of twists and turns as the reader is taken to different places on the globe.

This Is the Way the World Ends.
Four years after a tragic mission decimated his team, Cole "Tox" Russell has been disavowed by the United States. And that's fine--he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed, Tox is lured back into action.
Tox and his former Special Forces team regroup to work with FBI deception expert, Kasey Cortes, and fiery archaeologist, Tzivia Khalon, to search the globe for answers--and a cure. As the mission leads from one continent to another, it becomes clear they're not just fighting a plague but battling an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.
With time running out and the threat for a global pandemic rising, Tox and his team realize their sole chance might be to reach back through centuries of silence to find the only answer that can save them all.
This novel is filled with lots of suspense centering around a military ops team that has been brought in to stop a terrorist from releasing a deadly toxin that originated during biblical times. The characters involved are well defined and pull the reader into their fast paced story.
While I enjoyed getting to know the characters I didn't love them a whole lot. I think the story was so fast paced that I sometimes got lost along the way. However, I did love the historical background within this book and found myself quite impressed by the obvious research the author put into this book.
I you like fast paced action novels, this book is definitely for you. There is also a little romance in it as well.
On a 5-Star scale - 4 Stars.
