John Wells returns for another deadly mission from New York Times bestselling author Alex Berenson... In an Istanbul hotel, a deep source warns a CIA agent that Iran intends to kill a CIA station chief. Quickly, John Wells is called in to investigate, but before he can get far, the tip comes true. Which means that the next warning the source gives will be taken very seriously indeed. And it’s a big one. A radioactive one. As the threat level jumps and the government mobilizes, Wells must figure out what’s really going on. From a drug lord’s mansion in Guatemala to a secret plastic surgery center in Thailand to the slums of Istanbul, Wells uses every skill he has—including his ability to go undercover in the Arab world—to chase down leads. But the enemy he faces is equally determined. And soon he may be too late to pull the United States back from the brink of war…

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Berenson’s] clean, clear prose and solid grasp of global geopolitics make for compelling, believable scenes and chapters.” Boston Globe
“Action-packed…Thriller fans will eagerly await the return of the estimable Wells to finish the job.” Publishers Weekly
“[A] volcanic shocker…Working with plot elements that are terrifyingly realistic, research that rings as true as today’s headlines, and characters that brim with integrity and swagger, Berenson puts John Wells right up there with the best of espionage fiction’s greatest heroes.” Library Journal
“Berenson ratchets the tension ever higher, combining plenty of vividly detailed bloodletting with a fascinating look at geopolitics and the self-serving quagmire of governmental bureaucracy. Wells stands outside all that, a Rambo with a brain who can’t resist the call to action.” Booklist
“Berenson sets this series apart by doing his homework. The locations are meticulously researched and exceptionally well-realized. Berenson also clearly knows his spycraft, and his knowledge of the inner workings at Langley adds an additional layer of detail…Another well-crafted entry in Berenson’s excellent John Wells series.” Kirkus Reviews
“The story is fast-paced, and narrator George Guidall is simply magnificent.” Library Journal (audio review)
