直到现在,威尔斯几乎都已经退休了。他已退居到蒙大拿州西部最受欢迎的荒野,那里风景宜人,人稀少。但是,又一次,他常常是凌乱的个人生活受到了干扰,韦尔斯发现他已经怀着以前的爱安妮生了一个孩子。女婴艾米(Emmie)偷走了他坚硬的心。回到新罕布什尔州承担全职父亲的小小的角色–不与安妮浪漫团圆–没有人比威尔斯更惊讶地发现自己对父亲的爱好,特别是因为他第一次与他现在长大的儿子一起严重破坏了父亲的生活。

好’中央情报局的老同志Vinny Duto现在是POTUS,尽管他欣赏Duto挽救了生命的时间,但他没有’t trust the man. When 好s receives a mysterious phone call from a Bulgarian operative, he is made privy to a secret, U.S.-backed Bulgarian prison where suspected Muslim terrorists and ISIS operatives are incarcerated. Conversations among inmates point to a CIA mole within ISIS, as does the killing of two Special Operations Group agents near Raqqa, Syria, the seat of ISIS power. When 好s brings this information to the president, Duto refuses to launch an investigation without concrete proof.

Now, 好s must do something he never thought he’d do again: Re-assume his former identity as al Qaeda, stage a capture and go undercover in the Bulgarian prison. Since his time with al Qaeda, the web of terrorist activity has grown wider and more complex, and 好s risks everything when he takes the assignment. But it seems there is no other man for the job.

Berenson节奏快,可信且引人入胜,证明了他精通间谍故事。

除了情节的现实和令人信服的方面,内在的一个重点 囚犯 is the character of John 好s. To some extent he reminds the reader of Jack Reacher (from Lee Child): A resourceful and brainy spy who is not afraid of taking action or be violent if necessary. Berenson takes 好s from Montana to New Hampshire to Bulgaria and Afghanistan with a fast-paced narrative which is cinematic in scene descriptions and believable thanks to extensive research.

间谍惊悚片和间谍故事的支持者将深深地欣赏这部引人入胜的故事情节的新作品。
