Freelance. Alex Berenson reprises John Wells for a new adventure in his latest novel, The Secret Soldier. The melancholy hero of the earlier novels no longer works for the CIA, and the freelance assignment he accepts in this thriller comes from elderly King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia who can feel the tension of a family feud leading to disaster for his country. The plot lines are drawn from the current news, and the tension delivers the excitement that readers of thrillers crave. While the action is often predictable, Berensen still delivers enough pages of adrenaline-pumping action to make reading this thriller fun, while not requiring any thinking.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
