Once again, Ronie Kendig delivers an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat ride in the final installment of her Quiet Professionals series. Book three, Falcon, includes the Raptor team members from the previous books, as well as Timbrel and Candyman from the earlier story, Beowulf: Explosives Detection Dog. But, the bulk of the story is focused on finding the mole who has been sabotaging the team. We also get the chance to discover why Warrant Officer Salvatore “Falcon” Russo harbors so much animosity toward Cassandra Walker.
One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was the complexity of the relationship between Sal and Cassie. There is a lot to learn about their past and it is not pretty! The author adeptly delves into the gritty realities of life and does not sugar-coat the fact that our actions have consequences. She tackles topics like guilt and PTSD in a straightforward manner, recognizing that the atrocities faced by these warriors are real.
I really loved this story and loved the twists, turns, and shockers that completely surprised me! I also wish that there were more books coming in the future that would follow some of the other team members. (5 stars)
My thanks to the author for the complimentary copy of Falcon that I received in exchange for my honest review.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Special Forces operator Salvatore “Falcon” Russo vowed to never again speak to or trust Lieutenant Cassandra Walker after a tragedy four years ago. But as Raptor closes in on the cyber terrorists responsible for killing two of their own, Sal must put his life—and the lives of his teammates—in her hands. Despite his anger, Cassie is ill-prepared for his resistance and the fallout when she must protect the one asset who can end the attacks. As allies become enemies and hostiles become unlikely partners, Raptor fights for its very existence.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
An Army brat, Ronie Kendig grew up in the classic military family, with her father often TDY and her mother holding down the proverbial fort. Their family moved often, which left Ronie attending six schools by the time she’d entered fourth grade. Her only respite and “friends” during this time were the characters she created.
It was no surprise when she married a military veteran—her real-life hero—in June 1990. Married more than twenty years, Ronie and her husband, Brian, homeschool their children, the first of whom graduated in 2011. Despite the craziness of life, Ronie finds balance and peace with her faith, family and their Maltese Menace in Northern Virginia.
Ronie has a deep love and passion for people, especially hurting people, which is why she pursued and obtained a B.S. in Psychology from Liberty University. Ronie speaks nationally, volunteers with writer’s organizations, including American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and My Book Therapy, and mentors other writers.
