really liked it
Read from March 30 to April 05, 2011

Another solid thriller featuring (now former) CIA operative John Wells. Wells seems to want to retire into the mountains in New Hampshire but gets pulled back in. I really like the John Wells books and would describe them as the "thinking man's thriller" as compared to some of the others out there (I'm looking at you, Mitch Rapp). The Wells character doesn't just go into a situation guns blazing and kill all of the bad guys. He gathers intelligence, makes mistakes, and refines his strategies and feels conflicted about some of the things he is doing. A couple of sentences towards the end of the book suggest that we haven't heard the last of John Wells--count me as a big fan.
