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.

Secret organizations+Biblical history+a dangerous virus=Conspiracy of Silence.
Conspiracy of Silence is very exciting. Wow. The action is nonstop and you’re never sure who to trust. There are tons of twists that resulted in me quickly turning pages to figure out what happened next.
Also, I loved the fact that Biblical history and archeology played a big role in the plot. The book frequently refers to the book of Numbers, and I appreciated reading a book where the Bible events are regarded as history.
I’ve read several Christian mystery books, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them have overpowering romance elements . Not so with Conspiracy of Silence. Romance is present, but it doesn’t dominate the story. I do feel like the relationship could have been developed a little bit better, but overall I was pleased that the actual mystery was given the highest priority.
If you enjoy quick-paced suspense novels, I think you’ll like Conspiracy of Silence!
*My Rating: 4 of 5 stars*
