Book 12 in Alex Berenson's John Wells series has him near the top of espionage thriller authors. The story is ripped from the headlines as Russia attempts to damage the US and its government. John Wells is one of the really interesting espionage protagonist in modern novels. Wells' background including being a CIA operative and a convert to Islam is unique among other leading espionage thriller protagonists such as Mitch Rapp, Court Gentry, Dewey Andras, Pike Logan, Jericho Quinn, Victor the Assassin, John Rain, Jonathan Quinn, etc. I'm not ready to place author Alex Berenson at the very top of his craft beside Mark Greaneyand Ben Coes (I do not mention the deceased Mitch Rapp who is the best ever), but Berenson is very close to being in their class. George Guidall does a fantastic job of narration.
I recommend without reservation The Deceivers to everyone who enjoys suspense thrillers. All 12 of Alex Berenson's John Wells are in my Audible library. All are standalone and all are worthwhile.

Imagine a foreign power (Russia) trying to orchestrate a Presidential election in the US. Hard to grasp ... or not. A different take on current events but it's not too difficult to imagine.
Quite a ride in this book. Again, John - and his new friend, Winston (glad he's back), answer President Vinnie's call to investigate a strange terrorist attack in Dallas that is more than it seems. I didn't like the fact that John wasn't as prominent in this book as he should be. There are a lot of moving parts. Ellis in the field! Good stuff!
I loved the final line. And George Guidall's narration, of course. I hate having to wait a year to find out what happens next.
