Booklist Reviews 2016 February #1

After Berenson's Twelve Days (2015), most readers probably felt that they'd reached the boffo conclusion to a two-part story arc (following The Counterfeit Agent, 2014) within the larger John Wells series. Wrong. We learn here that there are unresolved issues regarding American billionaire Aaron Duberman, who very nearly tricked the U.S. into starting a war with Iran—a war narrowly averted by the efforts of maverick agent Wells, who wants Duberman dead but wants the U.S. president to step up and get it done. When that doesn't happen, Wells goes to work. So begins what should be a simple snatch, grab, and shoot but that quickly becomes something else entirely, thanks to Duberman being ensconced in a nearly impenetrable Hong Kong mansion and also to the fact that Russian and Chinese interests have thrown two very large spanners into the works. As always, Berenson brilliantly blends global politics into an adrenaline-pulsing spy novel. But, most of all, there is Wells, a stone-cold killer who nevertheless does what we all wish we could do: stand up to the powerful and make them pay. A fantasy? Probably, but it sure feels good.

PW Reviews 2015 December #1

Edgar-winner Berenson's exhilarating 10th spy thriller featuring ex-CIA agent John Wells wraps up a trilogy within the series that started with 2014's The Counterfeit Agent. With the tacit approval of the U.S. president, Wells sets out to kill American billionaire Aaron Duberman, who almost tricked the U.S. into invading Iran in 2015's Twelve Days. Duberman, a casino magnate with vast holdings in Macao, is now hiding out in his mansion high atop Hong Kong's Victoria Peak. Wells, deeply undercover and using the latest in surveillance technology as well as gut-level tradecraft, spends weeks trying to find a crack in Duberman's security armor. It finally comes when the Chinese and the Russians both become intrigued by the prospect of exploiting Duberman's vulnerability. Typically unflappable in tight situations, Wells uncharacteristically freezes up at one point. Yet when the call of duty summons, Wells rises to the occasion; his emotions may be mixed, but he still puts on a great show for readers. Author tour. Agent: Heather Schroder, ICM. (Feb.)
