From the publisher:
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.
Okay. So if you read my reviews at.all., you pretty much know that I’m a Ronie fanatic—uh, fan. Her books have always thrilled me. But Conspiracy of Silence…you guys. For serious. THIS. BOOK.
Here’s what I wrote on Goodreads: I can’t even. I just can’t. Ronie is THE WOMAN when it comes to writing incredible, fast-paced military action with twists that I can’t even hint at because they’re too awesome.
You NEED to read this extremely well-written, entertaining, makes-you-Google-things book!! I can’t even begin to say enough! My eyes rounded, my mind raced, and my breath was stolen. I loved this book!
That pretty much says it all, but because I know you’re curious about the writing style as much as the content, I will say Ronie’s style lends to the tension and rapid-fire pace of her stories. Conspiracy of Silence is no different. Actually, I would venture out on a limb and say this is her best yet. Brutal (not in a graphic way, but…oh, just read it already), brooding, fast-paced, thrilling, unexpected, with a twist. And that cover!! I’m a sucker for a good cover, and CoS is definitely a GOOD cover! From the front cover to the back cover, and every single, deliberate word in between, Conspiracy of Silence is probably in my top three favorite books for this year. And I’ve read a lot of good books this year.
I love this book so much, that I’M GIVING AWAY A PAPERBACK COPY!! I’m so bossy when it comes to telling you to buy books (especially if you’re a friend on Facebook), that I’m hoping you already own this one. But if you don’t, rest assured, I’m going to give one away to one lucky winner! Just leave a comment below, and one person will receive a shipment from Amazon (who doesn’t love it when an Amazon box shows up on your doorstep?!)!! YAY FOR GIVEAWAYS!

Thank you so much, Mikal, for an awesome review!! I so appreciate you and you’re enthusiasm. You’re awesome!!
No, Ronnie, YOU are awesome!!! ❤
I love her books, too.
Interesting note-I used to read a lot of military books (hubs was military, now retired), but I stopped after being brutally attacked. I just couldn’t handle the imagery due to PTSD.
Fast forward several years and I receive and read, yes read!, one of Ronie’s books, and love it. I admit I had a little trouble with some of the imagery-but wow are her books GREAT!!
Just my two cents worth.
Thanks for posting the review, I’ll have to read it soon.
RobbyeFaye, I am SO sorry to hear about your attack. There was a scene in one of her books that I had a hard time getting through due to a prior experience, but I find her books are so full of redemption and peace amid the turmoil, that I was able to keep reading and LOVE the book!
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. It’s incredible!

I am pretty sure I will as her books are fantastic.
They bring back a lot of memories of when hubs was in the military, mostly good ones!
Nice meeting you!
I can totally relate to that! I’m a current military spouse and always have so much fun reading these! I also love knowing Ronie is so incredibly supportive of the military. 🙂
Nice to meet you too!
