The Midnight Houseby Alex Berenson
Synopses & Reviews
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Man and The Ghost War delivers a gripping thriller that takes readers into the darkest shadows of a silent war…
One morning, a former CIA agent is shot to death in the street. That night, an army vet is gunned down in his doorway. The next day, John Wells gets a phone call.
Come to Langley. Now.
The victims were part of an interrogation team that operated out of a secret base in Poland called the Midnight House, where they worked over the toughest jihadis, extracting information by any means necessary. Now Wells must find out who is killing them. Islamic terrorists are the likeliest suspects, and Wells is uniquely qualified to go undercover and find them. But the trail of blood leads him to a place he couldn’t have imagined:
Years ago, John Wells was an all-American boy from Montana. Now, he is wandering through Pakistan as a member of al Qaeda. After a decade away from home, he despises the United States for its decadence. He hates America's shallow, mindless culture of vice and violence.
He is a devout Muslim. He is a brave warrior for Allah.
He is a CIA operative.
And he is coming home...
When two former covert agents are gunned down, John Wells learns that the victims were part of an interrogation team that operated out of a secret base called the Midnight House, where they extracted information from the toughest jihadis. Wells must find out who is hunting and killing them. But the trail of blood leads him to a place he couldn't have imagined.
