It was just barely okay as a time waster. Very boring in parts. ( )

ספר מתח לא רע. אקטואלי מאוד. מותח למדי. אבל איכשהו לא ממש הגיוני בהנחות היסוד שלו. ( )

Only an OK book -- struggled to get through it toward the end. The John Wells character was pretty well developed and the Glen Mason time in Thailand was believable. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I have been buying/ borrowing & catching up on ALL of Alex Berenson's John Wells novels since I read THE COUNTERFEIT AGENT because I was so interested in both the character of John Wells and the terrorists & politicians he is forced to deal with -- it is clearly well-researched and laid-out and I read this book overnight in a single sitting -- gripping, droll, suspenseful, thrilling. Berenson has a talent for bringing far away terrorist locations to life and making us care about his loved-ones and his friends. Highly recommended if you're a reader of David Baldacci, Harlan Coben, etc -- with a particular emphasis on Middle-Eastern locations and concerns. ( )
