Summary

The latest thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of Twelve Days, Alex Berenson.
John Wells has just barely managed to stop an operation designed to drive the United States and Iran into war, but the instigator himself disappeared behind an impenetrable wall of security. Now it's time for him to pay, and Wells has made it his personal mission. There are plenty of crosscurrents at work, though. The White House doesn't want anybody stirring the pot; his old CIA bosses have their own agendas; and other countries are starting to sniff around, sensing something unusual. It is when Russia and China enter the mix, however, that the whole affair is set to combust. With alarming speed, Wells is once again on his own...and the wolves are closing in.

Critic reviews

"Narrator George Guidall provides another outstanding listen in this tenth John Wells mystery. Guidall has perfect-pitch timing and pacing for this type of thriller. He imbues the characters with distinctive voices by adding powerful unwritten features such as a gravelly undertone or a tone of coarse indifference.... Guidall's extensive experience with the main character, John Wells, doesn't hurt either." ( AudioFile)

Best Yet!

I got hooked on John Wells after the first book. The author has taken the time to create a full character instead of an action hero. While Wells loves his country deeply, he knows the things she asked of him having taken a huge toll on him. Wells takes the time to consider the emotional impact of his actions, but he also has developed the capacity to stuff his feelings into a compartment and move forward with his job when necessary. As Wells has matured over the series, I love that he now trust his own judgment and moral compass to take action, instead of following the lead of his mentor or even the presiding president. Good for him. I won't rehash the story line, its covered in the book summary. Not entirely plausible but then it is called fiction for a reason.

Great book / love series, but...

Discovered Alex Berenson a year or so ago when looking for more books read by George Guidall. Alex Berenson's books are in the same genre as many of the other spy / espionage books that Guidall likes to read - I've enjoyed them all. The Wolves is my least favorite of the series as it's more revenge and less espionage - a departure from his prior books. It's hard to give a proper review without giving away the plot but I think I can safely say that unless you read the prior book in the series then you really won't understand what's going on in this one. While I enjoyed this book, I look forward to Alex's next in the series and hope that he gets back to having the main character, John Wells, fighting the bad guys.

The writing is good but George Guidall carries this book. If you're considering this as your first Berenson book, pick a different one. If you're like me and have already listened to his other works, you can't not read this. You just may not enjoy it as much.
