My Impressions:

Action-packed suspense is the hallmark of Falcon by Ronie Kendig, book 3 in her Quiet Professionals series. With explosions, sniper fire and ambushes, this book is a good choice for those who love military-based fiction. It also has a romance thread to keep fans happy. The novel continues the stories of several characters, so I would recommend that you read the previous books first.

Warrant officer Salvatore Falcon Russo is a member of an elite special forces team based in Afghanistan. As the team comes under attack from enemies on several fronts, he is thrown together with the last person he would choose to join in investigating. Lt. Cassandra Walker proved untrustworthy in the past, and he wants no part of her in his future. But events conspire to bring them together one more time. And this time their hearts may be changed.

Falcon plunges the reader right in the middle of military action. Characters are tough and determined. And while there hardness keeps them on task in their missions, they do have a soft side for those who are vulnerable. Main characters Falcon and Cassandra battle grief, guilt and feelings of betrayal. They have to overcome many obstacles before they can trust each other again. The novel is fast-paced and Ronie keeps you guessing as the investigation into the traitor progresses. I never saw the ending coming. I was a bit lost for the first half of the book — I didn’t have enough back story to understand the dynamics of the team and the context of the story. This series definitely needs to be read in order.

If you like romantic suspense with a military focus and non-stop action, then check out Falcon.
