Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Undercover work in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the attack on the United States, the Chinese plot that could have led to war — all this has exhausted CIA agent John Wells. But Wells has no time to dwell on his nightmares. He has made enemies, and the world won't stay quiet for long. Still, Wells is not prepared for what is about to happen. He and his fiance, Jennifer Exley, are driving in to work when traffic comes to a standstill — accidents on both bridges leading into Washington. Wells has a bad feeling — and it gets worse when he spots a red motorcycle zooming up between cars toward him. Before the day is over, several people will be dead or severely injured — Exley among them. And Wells will be a man possessed.

Review:

"Bestseller Berenson's well-plotted and thoughtful third thriller to feature CIA agent John Wells (after The Ghost War) finds Wells and his fellow CIA agent and fiance, Jenny Exley, living happily together in Washington, D.C., content to devote themselves to fighting the forces of evil. One morning, while stuck in traffic on their way to CIA headquarters, men on motorcycles attack them in their minivan. Exley suffers a serious gunshot injury in an act of revenge by minions of Pierre Kowalski, an enemy from an earlier book. Meanwhile, jihadists bent on destroying America steal two small atomic bombs. These extremely clever villains, per Berenson's style, aren't mad dog idiots but credible characters with reasons, at least from their own perspective, to be doing the great evil they're planning. Fast and furious when it needs to be, this is a welcome addition to an excellent series. Berenson won an Edgar for his first novel, The Faithful Spy." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

Muslim militants half a world away are determined to obtain the elements needed to build a nuclear weapon, smuggle it into America and explode the device in Washington, D.C., as payback for decades — centuries, they would say — of Western oppression. How might they bring off such a scheme? How might our government's agents stop them? Alex Berenson's third John Wells thriller pits his CIA superhero...
