Review: The Silent Man

Alex Berenson's CIA agent, John Wells, returns in The Silent Man. As strong, powerful and determined as ever, but troubled from some of the things he has experienced. As the revenge of one of his enemies nearly kills he and his girlfriend--fellow agent, Jennifer Exley--Wells becomes a man possessed. The CIA is unable to make headway into the investigation because of the precarious Russian/American politics, so Wells sets out to find justice on his own, even while Exley begs him not to.

The Silent Man is everything that a spy novel should be. The book moves quickly through the world, following it's characters from Russia to Iraq, Germany to D.C., the Baltic Sea to the calm New England countryside. It is filled with action and excitement: nuclear bombs stolen from Russia; Wells' violent mission to hurt those who hurt Exley; the anger and cold plotting of terrorists; a race against time, searching for the tiniest piece of information that may save the world from nuclear destruction.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a crisp exciting read by a fairly new and fresh author in the spy thriller world.

I don't generally read spy novels, but I'm going to recommend this one to my dad.
