    "John Wells Series"

    I can't stop until I read every one in the series, Alex Berenson in the same way as Vince Flynn with his Mitch Rapp series is a master.

    "Excellent Read for Mitch Rapp Fans"

    I started Mitch Rapp about 2 years ago. It's been a wonderful ride since but i finished all 15 books and was left wanting something more.

    Well. I found that George Guidall (amazing voice actor) narrated this series and decided to give it a try. It was hard not to compare the main characters to each other. I often had to stop myself from asking what Mitch would he done. On the other hand, the authors have their own unique styles and I love how much detail was given in this book to tertiary characters. It added a new dimension I wasn't expecting.

    Great story. Great plot. Interesting protagonist. Excellent performance. 5/5!

    "Excellent!"

    This is filling to hole created by Vince Flynn's death. George Guidall is the best narrator ever. The combination of Alex Berenson and Guidall is perfect.

    "The next Tom Clancy??"

    "The ghost war" was a well thought out well written novel if you like the type of spy CIA world terror type of plot! I wasn't really crazy about the reader. But after the story started to take on it's own life I was able to put him the reader aside. There were a few loose ends that could've been tied up a bit better but I just drew the conclusion that instead of tying it up it could've drawn it out there for causing one to become bored with the book. It did captivate me enough to find it difficult to put it down! I have now read two in the series and I'm onto the third! I would definitely recommend reading or listening to this book...

    "Took 34 chapters to get to the point"

    Maybe I'm missing something. This is my second book in the series. I gave up on book 1. Book 2 was frustrating because it took 85% of the story to get to the reason we were going down this path. I will try book 3 but if it doesn't improve I'm done. Bummer since so many tell me how great Alex Berenson's work is to them.

    Story
    "Not a good choice for Vince Flynn enthusiasts"

    I am always looking for new thrillers. I love David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, and Michael Connelly. If you are familiar with those writers and hold them in high esteem, this won't interest you. I read the first John Wells book and I remember liking it, but this one was really disappointing. I have, however, been reading long enough to know that this may not be the case with all readers. I have other writers, like Lee Child and Harlen Coben that I do not like, but I know other readers who reallly do. Perhaps you can use the writers above to guide you.

    "Vince Flynn fans would like this series"

    I enjoyed the 2nd book in John Wells series as much as Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn. Fast pace, full of actions, coherent story, and gripping from the start to the end. Narration by George Guidall is great as always.

    Story
    "It's not all good guys against bad guys"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This book tells a fictional story about the war on terror in a way that brings to light many truths about this conflict that people need to hear.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the fact that Alex Berenson tells this story and all of the stories in this series in a very nuanced way. James Wells has some compassion for the Muslim faith even as he hunts down terrorists. He is aware of the fact that many innocent Muslims get caught up in the conflict and that many U.S. policies actually feed the fire of terrorism and encourage more jihadists. The CIA often causes more problems than it fixes and often hangs their operatives out to dry. Wells is caught between conflicting factions often.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    I've always liked George Guidall's narrative style. Easy to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Can't think of one right now.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series. I highly recommend.
