This is generic super agent fare written competently but with little imagination. You do not have to have read any of the previous stories in the series to recognize and understand the recurring characters; you have met them in a score of other books in the same genre. The situation and development of the plot are also familiar.
There is nothing unpleasant about spending a few hours with this book, but it is never going to shock, touch, or fascinate you, nor will it likely keep you in the car for an extra five minutes because you just can't bear to turn it off. It has been a while since I read a really gripping thriller and I was looking for one. This was not it.

Berenson came out of nowhere and is right in there with Silva and other very talented suspense thriller authors. And, the background of the terrorist environment was enlightening and (I would bet) pretty accurate. Worth it!
