About the Author
Alex Berenson’s novels have been hailed as “heart-stopping” (USA Today), “terrifying” (The New York Times Book Review), and in the case of The Faithful Spy, “one of the best spy stories ever told” (The Wall Street Journal). The reason is not only their brilliant plotting and some of the best characters in modern suspense fiction, but Berenson’s cutting-edge examination of the very real dangers confronting us. They’re not only “superbly crafted” (Kirkus Reviews), they’re about the way we live now.
As a reporter for The New York Times, Alex Berenson covered topics ranging from the occupation of Iraq to the flooding of New Orleans to the financial crimes of Bernie Madoff. His previous novels include The Faithful Spy, winner of the Edgar Award; The Ghost War; The Silent Man; The Midnight House; and The Secret Soldier. Berenson lives in New York City.

The sequence with his son filled in the backstory but, for me, didn't add much. The main body was good with enough suspense and action but I felt I felt somewhat letdown when I finished. I thought it ended about five chapters too soon. To me, there was certainly more story to tell.
It was a good book and a great addition to the series but it just fell short. If possible, I'd give it a high three star rating but it isn't so I'll go with a four.
Alex B does a nice job of letting us know what the characters are thinking as well, which helps explain some of the motivations.
Like before, a healthy mix of different world views.
The action and pace make for interesting reading.
