Four years after a tragic mission decimated his career and his team, Cole "Tox" Russell is persona non grata to 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.
Partnered with FBI agent Kasey Cortes, Tox has to pull together a team to begin a globe-spanning search for answers--and a cure. As their quest leads them from continent to continent, it slowly becomes clear they're not just fighting a plague--but battling against an ancient secret society whose true goals remain hidden.
With time running out and opposition growing on every side, the key to everything may rest in an antique codex, the Crown of Jerusalem--but will Tox and his team be able to trust each other enough to break this century-spanning conspiracy of silence?

Prolific military suspense author Kendig (Operation Zulu Redemption) is at the top of her game as she introduces Cole Tox Russell and his paramilitary adventures in this opening book of her Tox Files series. Former Special Forces soldier Tox and his team of operatives must cross the globe in search of the cure of an ancient plague, which appears to have been unleashed from an excavation in Israel. Joining Tox is FBI agent Kasey Cortes, an old friend with an old crush. Navigating their reconnection proves as challenging as the mystery of the elusive secret society they seek to discovera group willing to let a worldwide disease spread in order to maintain their power, which is wrapped up in an ancient biblical text called Aleppo Codex. Kendig keeps the tensions high and the pace lightning fast, with military action scenes worthy of Vince Flynn. Especially noteworthy is watching the character development of elite modern warriors forced to confront and accept ancient history, faith, and supernatural power. Kendig fans will love this opening novel in her new series. Agent: Steve Laube, The Steve Laube Agency (Dec.)
