Those in power always need an unofficial option. Meet John Wells. Wells and his former CIA bosses Ellis Shafer and Vinnie Duto have uncovered a false-flag operation to convince the President to attack Iran. But with no hard evidence, no one at Langley or the White House will listen. The President has set a deadline for Iran to give up its nuclear program, and the mullahs in Tehran - furious and frightened - have responded with a deadly terrorist attack. Wells, Shafer, and Duto know they have only twelve days to find the proof they need. Fanning out, from Switzerland to Saudi Arabia, Israel to Russia, they desperately try to tease out the clues in their possession, even as the United States moves its forces into place and Iran mobilizes its own squad of suicide bombers. As the deadline gets nearer, will Wells be able to do enough to stop a full-scale escalation into war?

Alex Berenson’s knowledge based novel substantiated extensive learning through the use of jargon that complicates the theme. Although, it starts with a terrorist attack, the apocalypse inspires the trio, Vinny Duto, John Wells and Ellis Shafer to step up. Despite the many twists and turns; a wild goose chase resembling a cat and mouse battle, the missing pieces of the puzzle are finally assembled. It was awesome to witness Duto scoring 10 for the first time when he threatens Donna Green but more specifically when he saves Well’s life. Bottom line? Mission accomplished successfully!!

See "Counterfit Agent" [2014] Same characters/quasi identical story line - first several chapters read like a plot outline. Difference: male/female villans killed differently.

Excellent book. It's much better if you read the previous one (The Counterfeit Agent) shortly before this one so that they compliment each other. This one is much better, though

Being a Berenson fan I read the book. This is not one of his better books, John Wells. It gives a feel like he wrote it to satisfy his one book a year publishers contract.

The only reason I finished this book was hoping it would get better. It didn't

This one has a more frantic travelogue feel than most of the John Wells novels, and suffers because of it. He runs around the world nonstop for the entire book. It also references the previous book in the series extensively; there's enough of a summary that you're not lost, but it helps to have read "The Counterfeit Agent" recently, or remember it well, before you read this book (that prequel is much more tightly plotted and written).
