Mole. Alex Berenson continues to develop the complexity of protagonist John Wells in the eleventh novel in a series featuring this CIA agent. Just when his life seems to be settling down and his risk-taking diminishing, Wells offers himself as bait to ferret out a mole operating at the highest levels of the CIA. The novel is titled, The Prisoner, because that’s what Wells becomes so he can befriend another prisoner and identify the mole. As with the earlier novels in this series, the action moves quickly, it takes Wells risking his life to get to the bottom of things, and by the end of the novel, the good guys win. Readers who enjoy action novels will find their fill in this novel and this series.
