Berenson, who has covered the Iraq war for the New York Times, does a fine job with the book's globe-trotting settings and satisfyingly twisted plot. Wells is a refreshing thriller hero, sort of the anti-Jack Bauer.

Synopsis

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Man and The Ghost War delivers a gripping thriller that takes readers into the darkest shadows of a silent war…

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 victims were part of an interrogation team that operated out of a secret base in Poland called the Midnight House, where they worked over the toughest jihadis, extracting information by any means necessary. Now Wells must find out who is killing them. Islamic terrorists are the likeliest suspects, and Wells is uniquely qualified to go undercover and find them. But the trail of blood leads him to a place he couldn’t have imagined:

Home.

Good

A superbly crafted spy thriller that doubles as a gripping mystery; the reader has no idea who the killer is until Wells figures it out.

Serial killer thriller, international adventure, war story. There is something of each in THE MIDNIGHT HOUSE. The windows of the house, though, open onto the darkness at the edge of town. Perhaps you should peer through them.
