HIDE AND SEEK by Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky

Hide and Seek is a military thriller and an emotional roller coaster that keeps the pages turning. Several plot lines intersect, and to leave one exciting event and go onto another makes you look forward to returning to previous characters to see what happened to them. The excitement keeps ratcheting up.

I particularly liked rough and tough U.S. Foreign Affairs Officer Amelia Lennon who thwarts a kidnap attempt on the daughter of the president of Kyrgyzstan. That young woman, Jildiz Oskonbaeva, is plagued by asthma which makes their escape all the more difficult. Amelia might easily get herself to safety, but the woman she rescued suffers from the smoke of surrounding riots and the exhaustion of running.

Meanwhile, as all of this goes on, a special ops team is sent in to search for and rescue them. The insights into how they work together and the equipment they use is very informative.

There are emotional moments for the military men's families as they are mistakenly presumed to have been killed. There are tense moments, injury and death, but all ends well. The Christian aspect of the novel is handled tastefully and isn't heavy handed.

I'd recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys an exciting, thrilling read.
