    "Blaze of Glory" by Major Jeff Struecker

    Sergeant Major Eric "Boss" Moyer is the leader of six men in Special Operations that were deployed to Italy to intercept a wealthy Egyptian terrorist, El-Sayyed, who is allegedly behind a rash of female suicide bombers. Working with the Italian military and leaders, they are trying to annihilate any suicide missions ready to blow up the hotel where the Mexican and United States presidents and eighteen other world leaders were having a summit meeting. Unbeknownst to the men at the outset of this mission in Italy, these suicide bomber attempts were also related to drug lords in Mexico.

    The missions are treacherous in themselves, but even more so because one of the six men is suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), making the leader and his subordinate leader wonder if they can rely on him in the heat of the battles.

    This is my second military read in the past month. As a woman, I wondered how I thought this book would be a good read. Well, I had to strap myself down for the ride of my life!

    The reconnaissance and covert actions taken by these six men, along with Italians, were action-packed and heart-poundingly real. The intricate and precise military planning was intriguing and engaging. Once you think you have all the characters and plots identified, the author brings in another group that is intertwined in the action-again and again, merging the story line into one complete work. It kept my interest throughout the whole book.

    All the characters were detailed very personably, letting you get to know them intimately, including the soldier with PTSD and his flashbacks. One of the six men on this mission was a Christian who lived out his faith without being preachy to the others. The men knew it and respected him, even calling on him when in need.

    The world is evil in many more ways than we care to think of, and I so appreciate our military personnel that willingly give their time, and sometimes their lives, to keep us safe.

    This book was provided by Jonathon at B & H Fiction of BHPublishing in exchange for my honest review.
