The Counterfeit Agent (John Wells Series #8)
With the threat of nuclear war between the United States and Iran skyrocketing, John Wells must use every skill at his command, including his ability to go undercover as an Arab, in the cutting-edge new novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.
In an Istanbul hotel, an Iranian agent warns a CIA operative that Iran intends to kill a station chief. Before long, 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. We've put a package on a ship from Dubai to the United States. A radioactive one. A bomb? Not yet. It's a test run.
As the government mobilizes, something still doesn't smell right to Wells's old CIA boss Ellis Shafer. He sends Wells on a private mission to find the truth. But Wells, Shafer, and ex-agency chief Vinny Duto—an old enemy of Wells, now a wary ally—are swimming against the tide.
From Guatemala to Thailand to Hong Kong to Istanbul, Wells chases his most cunning adversary, a former CIA operative who seems to have vanished from the earth. But as Wells and Shafer close in on the truth, they realize they may already be too late to pull the United States back from war.
Alex Berenson's novels of modern espionage have won universal praise. In the words of The New York Times Book Review, "Berenson's strength is his deep understanding of geopolitics and of the shoddy compromises it demands. He clearly has excellent contacts in the world of shadows. Wells is a complex and satisfying protagonist, tackling bad guys across the world's conflict zones."
The Charleston Post and Courier confirms that Wells "is a much more complex character than one encounters in the typical spy/thriller novel.... He continues to be one of the most interesting, entertaining, and compelling heroes in the genre." Nothing Berenson has written before, though, will prepare you for the extraordinary events of The . Counterfeit Agent. And they could happen tomorrow.
