Another Author of CounterTerrorist Activity

The Midnight House (John Wells, #4)The Midnight House by Alex Berenson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a Goodreads giveaway and the first Alex Berenson I've read. One of the nice things about these giveaways is the chance to read authors that are new to the reader and, at times, an author becomes a favorite. That is the case with Berenson.

This particular book deals with the black ops carried out by the various intelligence agencies, and they are myriad, which operate world-wide under the aegis of the American government and the most recently passed laws that hold few accountable for their actions, so long as they can be justified, even vaguely,as performed on behalf of National security. So here is an interrogation center, located in Poland, using methods no longer acceptable on US soil. The squad who ran it are home again and are being murdered one by one in various locations around the country. John Wells,a burnt out CIA operative is recalled to find out who is killing them and why.

The action spans the globe and runs from the present to the past and back again. Wells and his pal and boss, Ellis Shafer follow the trails, confused and, at times, hindered by the government until they answer more questions than they were asked.

Moving on to the next Berenson now.
