New from @RonieKendig | Review of Raptor 6 - Quiet Professionals 1! Enter to win a Kindle HDX.

About the book: 

His mission.
His team.
Captain Dean Watters keeps these parts of his life in laser-like focus. So when hackers threaten both his mission and his team, Dean's Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Ten military super-secure computers are missing-which if opened, would give America's enemies a blueprint of US military intelligence. Failing to stop the hackers isn't an option.
Zahrah Zarrick is a missionary teacher to Afghan children in Mazar-e Sharif. She's also a target. Her expertise in quantum cryptology makes her an unwitting pawn in the hackers' deadly game. They're coming for her, and Dean and his team must stop them.
Before the team can get to Zahrah, she disappears. Now Dean must race to rescue her and stop the hackers from unleashing terror on millions across the globe. But to do so, Dean will be forced to crack open the steel box around his heart-a move that might come at the highest cost.

My review:  This story hits the ground running and does not let up!  It has non-stop action and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat.  I did not want to stop reading.  I loved the humor and relationships between the team members.  It was fascinating to see behind the scenes of secret missions and frustrating, too, to see the politics and ego that can get in the way sometimes.  I liked the glimpses we get of Dean's background and the baggage he carries and how that impacts his relationship with Zahrah.  There are some very heart-wrenching scenes, too, with one of  the team member's wives dying of cancer and the horrible situation Zahrah goes through.  Her faith was incredibly inspiring;  the fact that she could keep trusting God through everything just blew me away.  She reminded me of my favorite fictional character, Hadassah, from Francine Rivers' Mark of the Lion series.  I really liked the discussions about faith as Dean tries to understand her.  There were some very sweet moments even amid the horrible reality of what was happening.    There's a little bit of a romance to the story.  The harshness was shown without being too descriptive, for which I was glad.  I can't wait for the next book in the series!  I would definitely recommend this to both men and women who like good suspense!
