Description

The number one New York Times best-selling author of The Ghost War and The Faithful Spy returns with a novel of international intrigue and catastrophic terrorism that "keeps the reader caring, and guessing, until the end." (Booklist

For CIA operative John Wells, the underworld has become more real than the real world. He's spent years in the close company of evil men. And he's paid the price in every possible way. Now, he's on the ragged edge of burnout. His nights are plagued by twisted dreams. He's beginning to doubt if he can ever live a normal life.

He is right to think so.

For revenge....

"The Faithful Spy", ver. 2.0

This is a difficult book to judge. I can truthfully say it was well written, well read and engaging. Had I not also read "The Faithful Spy", I would have no problem giving this a big thumbs up. Unfortunately, it is largely a rehash of the earlier book. By itself, I would have to say it is worth reading. If, however, you have already enjoyed "Faithful", you may opt to pass on this given the gross similarities in plot, character, locale, etc.

generic ho hum

This is generic super agent fare written competently but with little imagination. You do not have to have read any of the previous stories in the series to recognize and understand the recurring characters; you have met them in a score of other books in the same genre. The situation and development of the plot are also familiar.

There is nothing unpleasant about spending a few hours with this book, but it is never going to shock, touch, or fascinate you, nor will it likely keep you in the car for an extra five minutes because you just can't bear to turn it off. It has been a while since I read a really gripping thriller and I was looking for one. This was not it.

GOOD LISTEN AND INTERESTING BACKGROUND

Berenson came out of nowhere and is right in there with Silva and other very talented suspense thriller authors. And, the background of the terrorist environment was enlightening and (I would bet) pretty accurate. Worth it!

another hit for berenson

The Silent Man has plenty of action and interesting characters. The main character has appeared in two of the author's previous books, both of which are excellent. The story follows the plot line from the previous book, but this book stands alone quite well. The previous story is explained, without being tedious, in the context of the present, and there will be no problem for the reader who is unfamiliar with this character. Guidall is my favorite narrator for this genre, and he does a fine job with this book. 5 stars!

Great Entertainment

Disclosure: This is not my genre. That said, I have enjoyed this series. The stories are well crafted. Everything seems to fit without being transparent. The characters are consistently drawn story to story. Throughout there is very little call for suspension of disbelief despite inherent unreality. George Guidall’s narration adds to the quality of the series. I’ve given each 4 stars but would give the series 5. In short, these stories are great entertainment for very little effort on the part of the listener.

I liked this one the best, so far!

Once again we are hearing about another aspect of John Wells personality - his relationship with his work. I very much enjoy this character, I also like seeing how he changes or make a mess of his life.

Book 3 - last one

I bought the full Alex Berenson series when it was on a really good sale. This is now the 3rd book and I’m 1/2 way through and we’ve yet to explain why we are here. The two books preceding this one had the same problem. I see a pattern. Lots of dialog, lots of detail, no plot. The last 1/3 of the book I will guess gets us there but I’m not going to wait around and see.

What can I say....Wells!!!!

John wells is becoming a very engaging and wonderful character to follow. This is a great book and overall a really good series. It tugs at you due to the characters history and persona. George Guidall is once again the benchmark to narrators out there. He enhances an already good story to new heights.

Strong Endings Count

Enjoyed the book throughout until the climatic end. I was disappointed that it ended.... but mostly because there seemed to be a fizzle not a bang. That was good for the country, but has for the reader. Still.....ill cone back for more . Guidall's presentation was, as usual, outstanding.

F*** the end

It was a typical book, as far as wells the super spy but the end kinda grounded my gears
