Publisher's Summary

The latest thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of Twelve Days, Alex Berenson.
John Wells has just barely managed to stop an operation designed to drive the United States and Iran into war, but the instigator himself disappeared behind an impenetrable wall of security. Now it's time for him to pay, and Wells has made it his personal mission. There are plenty of crosscurrents at work, though. The White House doesn't want anybody stirring the pot; his old CIA bosses have their own agendas; and other countries are starting to sniff around, sensing something unusual. It is when Russia and China enter the mix, however, that the whole affair is set to combust. With alarming speed, Wells is once again on his own...and the wolves are closing in.


What the Critics Say

"Narrator George Guidall provides another outstanding listen in this tenth John Wells mystery. Guidall has perfect-pitch timing and pacing for this type of thriller. He imbues the characters with distinctive voices by adding powerful unwritten features such as a gravelly undertone or a tone of coarse indifference.... Guidall's extensive experience with the main character, John Wells, doesn't hurt either." (AudioFile)

Good spy thriller!

The Wolves is Book 10 in the John Wells series. It starts exactly where Book 9, Twelve Days, finished. I have rated all prior books in the Wells series either 4 or 5 stars. I'm rating this one 4 stars although is is clearly the weakest novel in the series. The plot is simply not as credible as the others.

George Guidall is one of my favorite narrators. I believe this is the first time I have rated him less than 5 stars.

I've been waiting to see if Alex Berenson is going to break into the elite group of espionage thriller writers (authors like Brad Thor, Daniel Silva, Brad Taylor, Ben Coes, Brett Battles, Brian Haig, Mark Greaney, Vince Flynn, Mark Dawson, Tom Wood, Nelson DeMille, and Tom Clancy). Berenson is not there yet, but he does show promise of the capability in his best John Wells novels. The Wolves is not one of his best.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Best Yet!

I got hooked on John Wells after the first book. The author has taken the time to create a full character instead of an action hero. While Wells loves his country deeply, he knows the things she asked of him having taken a huge toll on him. Wells takes the time to consider the emotional impact of his actions, but he also has developed the capacity to stuff his feelings into a compartment and move forward with his job when necessary. As Wells has matured over the series, I love that he now trust his own judgment and moral compass to take action, instead of following the lead of his mentor or even the presiding president. Good for him. I won't rehash the story line, its covered in the book summary. Not entirely plausible but then it is called fiction for a reason.
