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.

    "The worst John Wells so far"

    Very disappointed in this book, by far the worst so far. Week story and very predictable.

    "Felt like it was the abridged version"

    No time spent on the actual kidnapping. No time spent on the retribution towards the guy that set them up, other than a brief discussion of what they wanted to do to him. This is my last Wells book, which is disappointing, as I do like the character.

    "too predictable. started off interesting"

    too many characters with partial development. just saw the ending from very early on. and the last half was typical Jack can't get killed no matter what.

    "Best one of series yet"

    Just started his series a couple months back. This is the best written and performed to date.
    Becoming as good as Coes and Taylor, a good stretch better than the last Clancy ripoff.

    "The best!!!"

    The best book so far in the series. So well done. Puts you right in the middle of it and you can't get out until it's over. Great ride.

    "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.
