    John Wells is the only American CIA agent ever to penetrate al Qaeda. Since before the attacks in 2001, Wells has been hiding in the mountains of Pakistan, biding his time, building his cover.

    Margaret says: "Faithful Spy"
    "Excellent, Like Ludlum at His Best"
    Overall

    Probably the best suspense novel I've read in the post-911 era. An edge-of-your-seat thriller that gets better as it develops.

    We need more from Mr. Berenson (Ghost War), Audible!

    CIA cleaner Micah Dalton returns for another go-round of the international espionage, government cover-ups, and high-intensity pursuit that have cemented this series in the best of spy fiction.

    What did you like best about The Orpheus Deception? What did you like least?

    Sigh. Another one of these books wherein a conservative author shouts his politics at you. There were so many of these cheap shots (don't get between Al Gore and a ham sandwich, harder to find than Michael Moore's neck, etc.) that it really got tedious and completely distracting. FWIW, at least he's not yet gone the full Michael Crichton (State of Fear) and turn a "novel" into nothing more than an Atlas Shrugged-type of political manifesto (Vince Flynn has came close in Extreme Measures).

    Anyway, there is a story buried in here and it's actually not that bad though somewhat overly convuluted, anticlimatic and lacking in action (compared to the first Dalton), but still not a bad listen or a complete waste of time.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Erica says: "Possibly The Best Techno-thriller Ever"
    "Excellent Book, Excellent Narration"
    Overall

    This is an unusual book without doubt. But if familiar with the inside workings of the internet, or of computer operating systems...it's a can't miss.

    Great suspense, interesting politics, great book.

    More, Mr. Suarez, please!
