    John Wells may have left the CIA, but it hasn't left him. A mysterious call brings a surprise meeting with the aged monarch of Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah. "My kingdom is on a precipice," he tells Wells. "Powerful factions are plotting against me, and my own family is in danger. I don't know who I can trust, but I'm told I can trust you."

    Book and Movie Lover says: "Curses! Islamists foiled again!"
    "Can we have a Redo?"
    Overall

    I'm reading Berenson's books in order. The narrator of the Faithful Spy was good. I have listened to better, but I would give him a B+or A-. After an hour of the Secret Soldier I would revise my grade to an A++. This narrator mumbles and rushes through his reading so much that Berenson's prose is almost totally obscured. My heart sank when I saw that the same guy has narrated other Berenson books!
    How did he get the job?? I've never heard worse. The premise of the book is good. The descriptions and nuance are good. The protagonist, John Wells, is interesting. But it only takes an incompetent narrator to muck it up royally. My 3 star rating reflects a 4.7 for the book and a .7 for narration.
