    Great book

    This is a great read for anyone looking for action, brotherly love, and a little heartwrenching mixed in. It's fast-paced, lots of guns and explosions, and a strong faith throughout.

    good book

    This is not exactly the type of book I usually read but I really enjoyed it. It probably told me more truth about the lives of our military and nations abroad than I want to know but gives me a greater appreciation for those willingly risk so much for our freedom. Although its fiction I know it was based in life experiences. Good job in making an enjoyable book an eye opening one too.

    Not your childhood 'Hide and Seek!'

    Hide and Seek by Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky is based in the small country of Kyrgyzstan, an off shoot country from the former USSR. It’s a country rife with riots and uprisings.

    Amelia Lennon, an army trained Foreign Affairs Officer, has just met with Juldiz Oskonbaeva, the government contact and lawyer daughter of the President of Kyrgyzstan, to negotiate a stay for the US military on Manas airbase. China and Russian are trying to out the US from the base.

    Upon leaving the meeting, Amelia happens to follow behind Juldiz, as her next stop is just beyond Juldiz’s stop. Amelia witnesses an attempt to abduct her, contravenes the kidnapping, and finds them both on the run from the remaining abductors.

    J. J. “Boss” Bartley was promoted to team leader of the mission to rescue Amelia despite Kyrgyzstan’s demand that US military remain outside the rioting areas. There are unknown circumstances with this mission that jeopardize the search and rescue. Amelia and Juldiz are alternately hiding and running to safety, unaware that the US Special Ops team is trying to find them. Thus begins part of the ‘hide and seek’ portion of the story.

    At home, the wives of these men are misinformed that the whole team has been killed. So the story weaves back and forth between the grief and stress these women go through and the hazards of the team members.

    I’ve come to enjoy the team of Struecker and Gansky in their high-rev mission trips of the Special Ops. This book is no different for action, suspense, danger, and deadly obstacles. The book may start out slow with the introduction of the team players and the meeting between Amelia and Juldiz, but the hard action and dangerous endeavors peal out of the racetrack and don’t stop till the end of the book. The scenes are depicted in real action and the characters form a camaraderie of humorous banter and serious workmanship.

    I found the instrumentation and gadgets used for surveillance mind-boggling and fascinating– Special Ops gadgetry that are usually only privy to the military or thugs who might get their hands on for spying and interception. Now I don’t know if these actual instruments exist, but I’ve seen the bee drones, so I’m sure the information is close.

    J. J. and another member are Christian, and they unabashedly pray during the hard times. They actually become a witness to the other men as the operation goes forth. It’s also a witness that one can be a Christian and still do the difficult job ahead of them, even if it means killing the enemy.

    You don’t have to be a guy to enjoy this book. I’m fascinated by the bravery of the men that carry out these dangerous missions. It gives me a greater appreciation of what all our troops do on behalf of our country and the people of other countries. Grab a copy and sit down for an action-packed read! There are some raw areas that are gruesome, so keep that in mind.
