The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Ghost War and The Faithful Spy returns with a novel of international intrigue and catastrophic terrorism that "keeps the reader caring, and guessing, until the end." (Booklist)
For CIA operative John Wells, the underworld has become more real than the real world. He's spent years in the close company of evil men. And he's paid the price in every possible way. Now, he's on the ragged edge of burnout. His nights are plagued by twisted dreams. He's beginning to doubt if he can ever live a normal life.
He is right to think so.
Berenson is definitely moving up, he gets' better with each book as if learning from past mistakes. He keeps your attention with Silent Man and keeps things moving at a good clip.
I'm looking forward to his next book being even more faster paced and thrilling.
Endless, Boring, Details...
I wanted to love this book. I was hoping it would fit into the Vince Flynn mode. The narration is excellent, thanks to the work of George Guidall, but the story takes way too long to develop. Berenson is so busy developing details about the terrorists, and the background on the terrorists, and then even more details about the terrorists that he leaves almost no time for the hero of the story. It seemed like it would take forever for this to end. Not recommended.
The narrator is like listening to grass grow.
The voice changes in inflection for the different characters is so subtle it is nearly impossible to follow the storyline.
