Publisher's Summary

The brand new John Wells thriller from New York Times best seller Alex Berenson. Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah fears he is fast losing control of his family and his people. A series of terrorist attacks has put his kingdom on edge and, with powerful factions operating against him, the king must turn to the one man he has been told will make the difference. Ex-CIA operative John Wells knows all too well how covert internal battles can undermine a nation. With the stability of a powerful Middle Eastern country at stake, he goes undercover to investigate. But it soon becomes clear that the plotters want more than the fall of a monarch. Their objective is to spark the final bloody conflagration between Islam and the West.

"Extraordinary...Berenson brings back one of his most intriguing characters, terrorist hunter John Wells." (JCC Atlanta)
'The Secret Soldier luxuriates in violence, positively raging in Tarentino-style carnage... Berenson is convincing at forensics, scenery and storytelling, and his characters adept with entertaining, rat-a-tat zingers." (International Herald Tribune)

Fantastic but frightening storyline

Although this is book 5 from a series, it stands alone with a fabulous storyline and great characters. As the publishers summary intimates this story is set in the middle east and provide a fascinating insight to life in the region.

I mention in the heading 'frightening', I guess I was thinking about this from two perspectives, how oppressed life can be there, but also how easily things can get out of hand if we were to allow that to happen.

So a great story narrated by one of the best, George Guidall makes for a fantastic package.

Good story terrible performance

Story was fine but my enjoyment was marred by the speaker's terrible delivery and poor diction. Many words stopped before their endings. Sometimes so you had to guess what was being said. Sentences that tailed off in volume. Very disappointing.
