Publisher's summary

John Wells returns for another deadly mission from New York Times best-selling author Alex Berenson...

In an Istanbul hotel, a deep source warns a CIA agent that Iran intends to kill a CIA station chief. Quickly, John Wells is called in to investigate, but before he can get far, the tip comes true. Which means that the next warning the source gives will be taken very seriously indeed. And it’s a big one.

A radioactive one.

As the threat level jumps and the government mobilizes, Wells must figure out what’s really going on. From a drug lord’s mansion in Guatemala to a secret plastic surgery center in Thailand to the slums of Istanbul, Wells uses every skill he has - including his ability to go undercover in the Arab world - to chase down leads. But the enemy he faces is equally determined. And soon he may be too late to pull the United States back from the brink of war...

Worse cliffhanger than The Hobbit Pt. 2

Would you try another book from Alex Berenson and/or George Guidall?

Alex Berenson: Yes
George Guidall: Yes, and in my opinion he is the best reader in my 200+ audiobook library.

What was most disappointing about Alex Berenson’s story?

This book felt pointless. Nothing really happened except some drama in the personal life and setting up the plot for the next book in the series. This book easily could have been condensed into the first six or seven chapters and left the next forty to fifty chapters for the body, climax and conclusion.

What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

He is an amazing narrator and really makes any book he reads more interesting and enjoyable.

Do you think The Counterfeit Agent needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

They may as well have put "To Be Continued..." at the end of the book.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book only in a year or so when the next book comes out. I mean, for heaven's sake, the last words of the book are, "twelve days." Meaning, that they have twelve days the finish what they had started. They should have just waited another year and combine this book with the next one.
