CIA agent John Wells returns in a cutting-edge novel of modern suspense from the #1 New York Times bestselling writer.

Early one morning, a former CIA agent is shot to death in the street. That night, an army vet is gunned down in his doorway. The next day, John Wells gets a phone call. Come to Langley. Now.

The two victims were part of an eleven-member interrogation team that operated out of a secret base in Poland called the Mid­night House. For two years, they put the screws to the toughest jihadis, men thought to have knowledge of imminent threats. The interrogators used whatever means necessary. When they were disbanded in the wake of public controversy, they were given medals for their heroism, Prozac for their nightmares. Now Wells must find out who is killing them. Islamic terrorists are the likeliest explanation, and Wells is uniquely qualified to go undercover after them. But the trail of blood he discovers will lead him and his boss, Ellis Shafer, to a place they wouldn’t have imagined—and leave Wells facing the hardest of questions about the men of the Midnight House.

Berenson’s work has been called “superior entertainment” (Washington Post), “heart-stopping adventure” (USA Today), and “a superb yarn reflecting the myriad dangers confronting our country today” (Providence Journal). He is one of the world’s best new thriller writers—and he is just getting started.

    " Another really good John Wells story. It's more of a mystery than espionage story as in the past books which was actually kind of refreshing. Not that I don't enjoy the espionage piece, but how many times can he save the world from international terrorists? Anyway, I'm already looking forward to the next one. "

    " I enjoyed the development of CIA operative Jack Wells in the first three books in this series, but this one was very disappointing. The author's attempt at jumping between different years and locations was clumsy and disjointed. The story was shallow, and did not really flow. Jack Wells came across as being an indecisive, easily manipulated pawn, not the skilled field agent he was supposed to be. I don't know if the author was trying to mimic Vince Flynn by putting his main character through a trying period in his life/career, but no matter what his reasoning for the story, I felt it was poorly done. "

    " What I liked about this book is the psychological intrigue. The pain of the interrogators and the detainees seemed real, the Middle East cultural observations were well researched and the investigation of the murders central to the plot kept me guessing. "

    " Well, on our way HOME from Nebraska, we listened to this book. Again, entertaining, but didn't require any thinking or change my view of the world. Just plain entertainment. "
