Fallen Angel


Jeff's other books

Major (Retired) Jeff Struecker (a real life Black Hawk Down veteran) and his award-winning coauthor tell a space-based intelligence story of intense extremes in their new novel, Fallen Angel, named for the “Angel-12″ American satellite that is ambushed by China and falls 22,000 miles to land in remote Siberia. U.S. Sgt. Major Eric Moyer and his Special Ops unit are deployed to find Angel-12 and keep its advanced nuclear fuel from enemy hands-and there are many. A Russian shadow government bent on restoring the former USSR pursues the satellite as does the Chinese special forces group that knocked it from the sky. A rash of military and domestic hostage concerns ensues as the stark truth looms: three nations are racing to the satellite, but only one will get there first.

CafĂ© Lily’s Review:
Because I’m not a huge fan of military suspense, this book was hard for me to get into.  It revolves around “space-based intelligence” and since I’m not familiar with military operations, many of the references were hard for me to understand or find interest in.   However, I did enjoy Blaze of Glory (read my review here).  

This author definitely knows what he’s writing about and I think that because he is such a highly respected and decorated member of the Army, he has the advantage of military intelligence and experience that civilian readers like myself might not have.   This is one of those books you’ll have to read for yourself.  I would say that if this one doesn’t grab your attention, try some of Jeff’s other books.


Thanks to Julie Gwinn at B & H Publishers for providing me with an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
