Publisher's Summary

John Wells enters new territory, as he goes underground in East Africa to track four kidnapped Americans and the Somali bandits who snatched them, in the tough, thoughtful, electrifying new novel from the #1 New York Times best-selling author.

Four friends, recent college graduates, travel to Kenya to work at a giant refugee camp for Somalis. Two men, two women, each with their own reasons for being there. But after twelve weeks, they’re ready for a break and pile into a Land Cruiser for an adventure.

They get more than they bargained for. Bandits hijack them. They wake up in a hut, hooded, bound, no food or water. Hostages. As a personal favor, John Wells is asked to try to find them, but he does so reluctantly. East Africa isn’t his usual playing field. And when he arrives, he finds that the truth behind the kidnappings is far more complex than he imagined.

The clock is ticking. The White House is edging closer to an invasion of Somalia. Wells has a unique ability to go undercover, and to make things happen, but if he can’t find the hostages soon, they’ll be dead - and the U.S. may be in a war it never should have begun.

    "I don't know..."

    This installment in the John Wells series was kind of weak. George Guidal does a fine job narrating as always, but the story didn't engage.

    Word count on Mzungo?

    I hope the next book gets better.

    Story
    "Does not diappoint"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Night Ranger to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the book, so cannot comment.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Night Ranger?

    The basis of the story was a good change up from the usual plotline involving Middle Eastern terrorists. Don't want to give too much away, but most of the characters are more than cardboard cutouts. Look, if you've read the rest of the series until this one - read it. You will like. If you haven't read the other books, start with #1 and work your way through.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Obviously - John Wells.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have; but not practical - too long.

    Story
    "Up to date"

    History repeats itself until we evolve enough to overcome hatred and discrimination. Sharing, anything, never works well in life though, only in theory. Time and again Alex Berenson proves greed, mistrust, political and monetary corruption win. Yet he always pulls out the last minute hero. Way to go home team! Making you believe maybe we can win. We also learn some cool insider tricks. These books are eye opening lessons into today's issues. Even though he has taken a fare share of Creative Liberty along the way. Enjoy ;-)

    "Great Entertainment"

    Disclosure: This is not my genre. That said, I have enjoyed this series. The stories are well crafted. Everything seems to fit without being transparent. The characters are consistently drawn story to story. Throughout there is very little call for suspension of disbelief despite inherent unreality. George Guidall’s narration adds to the quality of the series. I’ve given each 4 stars but would give the series 5. In short, these stories are great entertainment for very little effort on the part of the listener.

    Story
    "Curious as to how much of this is story true"

    After one of these books, I wonder how much of the information in it is true. In this case, I wonder if the USA would actually work with a terrorist group in order to achieve an end favorable to the USA. Also, how much of the drone technology revealed is accurate. Knowing how much money the USA gives to countries with bad actors (e.g., Iran and Pakistan) and the fact we no longer capture our enemies, we just drone them, I wouldn't be surprised to find that something similar to this book has actually happened.

    "Not quite as good as previous books"

    I enjoyed this but it didn't seem up to previous standards. The story was okay if a little less exciting than some other adventures John Wells has had. The narration was perfect by the incomparable George Guidall. Overall, a decent read/listen.

    Story
    "Interesting, Well-Crafted, Politically Correct Story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Over and over, the story takes turns I would never have thought of, were I a storyteller. Nicely done!


    Any additional comments?

    I am enjoying listening my way through the entire John Wells series, which is almost as good as Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp line. And although each novel is worth buying and listening to, I am growing weary of the way Berenson cannot resist injecting a subtle level of political correctness as regards Islam.Excellent narration: George Guidall is superb.

    "Always a great time."

    No worries about buying this book.

    the story is set in a dark place in a third world we always forget about. I have learned so much about the untold back stories set in these countries.
