John Wells never disappoints! He endures so much in this fascinating book, but he survives. John is a complex character with a serious moral code, which is not understood by everyone, but he is willing to do whatever is necessary to serve our country. Alex Berenson extracts the best from his hero. All these addictive books are worth your time. A must read!

As a fan of John Wells, I did enjoy this book. I wish that the mole/traitor had a more convincing reason to turn on his Country. Maybe if the reader had gotten to know the woman, more about their psychological connection and more feelings about her death, I might have understood the mole. I would not agree with his actions, but maybe I would have been able to have a little compassion for him. I do hope that John Wells' personal life continues to grow and he find happiness there, also. It would be nice for him to include (Grandpa) Ellis and his wife, into his personal life.

One of my favorite authors, been a fan since the beginning. This is my favorite Wells book since his debut, The Faithful Spy. It's going back to basics - undercover with terrorists in a foreign land. I don't want to give too much of the plot away, but there's been a LOT of personal & professional baggage in between (9 novels worth!), and it's addressed in a concise yet masterful manner. The book hasn't even hit store shelves yet, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment... I wish the book was being released in December; it would be under a few of my friends' Christmas trees... *** I received an advance reading copy in exchange for my honest review.

I enjoyed the first 10 writings of the John Wells series. This lost all of that. It's a political liberal theme combined with being a stupid romance novel. A true waste of money and time. The author should have stuck with the old story line.
