“The book never lets up as it exposes the terrors and boredom of war on the front lines.”—Providence Journal
“This thriller pours on the blood and guts.”—Library Journal
More Praise for Alex Berenson
“Berenson rises above the thriller genre.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“The authenticity Berenson brings to his ripped-from-the-headlines stories makes them seem as vividly real and scary as nonfiction or the nightly news.”—Booklist
“Wells is a refreshing thriller hero, sort of the anti–Jack Bauer.”—St. Petersburg Times

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.
