In Saudi Arabia, a series of terrorist attacks has put the Kingdom onedge. King Abdullah is losing his hold, and his own secret police cannot betrusted. With nowhere to turn, the king asks for ex-CIA agent John Wells'shelp.

Reluctantly, and with the secret blessing of hisformer CIA boss, Wells begins to unravel the conspiracy, and realizes thatthere is more than one country at stake-because the plotters want more than thefall of a monarch. They want to start the final battle between America andIslam-with only themselves as the victors...


TheShadow Patrol (#6):
Image

In 2009, the CIA's Kabul Station fell for a source who promised to leadit to Bin Laden, but instead he blew himself up, taking the station's mostsenior officers with him. Now, more than two years later, the station is stillfloundering, agents are dying, and at Langley the CIA's chiefs wonder if theunthinkable has happened, if somehow the Taliban has infiltrated the station.

When they ask John Wells to investigate, he reluctantlyagrees to return to the country where his career as an undercover operativebegan. But there, he finds a vipers' nest of hostility and mistrust-and cluesthat hint at a drug-trafficking operation involving the Agency, the military,and the Taliban. Americans are dying, and an American is responsible. And onlyJohn Wells stands in his way . . . for now.


TheNight Ranger (#7):

John Wells enters new territory, as he goes underground in East Africa totrack four kidnapped Americans and the Somali bandits who snatched them, in thetough, thoughtful, electrifying new novel from the #1 New YorkTimes-bestselling author.

Four friends, recent college graduates, travelto Kenya to work at a giant refugee camp for Somalis. Two men, two women, eachwith their own reasons for being there. But after twelve weeks, they’re readyfor a break and pile into a Land Cruiser for an adventure.

They get more than they bargained for. Banditshijack them. They wake up in a hut, hooded, bound, no food or water. Hostages.As a personal favor, John Wells is asked to try to find them, but he does soreluctantly. East Africa isn’t his usual playing field. And when he arrives, hefinds that the truth behind the kidnappings is far more complex than heimagined.

The clock is ticking. The White House is edgingcloser to an invasion of Somalia. Wells has a unique ability to go undercover,and to make things happen, but if he can’t find the hostages soon, they’ll bedead – and the U.S. may be in a war it never should have begun.



TheCounterfeit Agent (#8):
Image

In an Istanbul hotel, a deep source warns a CIAagent that Iran intends to kill a CIA station chief. Quickly, John Wells iscalled in to investigate, but before he can get far, the tip comes true. Whichmeans that the next warning the source gives will be taken very seriouslyindeed. And it’s a big one. We’ve put a package on a ship from Dubai to theUnited States. A radioactive one. A bomb? Not yet. It’s a test run.

As the threat level jumps and the governmentmobilizes, something still doesn’t smell right to Wells’s old CIA boss EllisShafer, and so he sends Wells on a private mission to find out what’s going on.But the two of them are swimming against the tide. From Guatemala to Thailandto Hong Kong to Istanbul, Wells uses every skill he has, including his abilityto go undercover in the Arab world, to chase down leads. But it might not beenough. Soon there might be nothing anyone can do to pull the United Statesback from the brink of war.

Twelve Days (#9):
Image

Twelve days.

Wells, with his former CIA bosses Ellis Shaferand Vinnie Duto, has uncovered a staggering plot, a false-flag operation toconvince the President to attack Iran. But they have no hard evidence, and noone at Langley or the White House will listen.

Now the President has set a deadline for Iran togive up its nuclear program, and the mullahs in Tehran—furious andfrightened—have responded with a deadly terrorist attack. Wells, Shafer, andDuto know they have only twelve days to find the proof they need. They fan out,from Switzerland to Saudi Arabia, Israel to Russia, desperately trying to teaseout the clues in their possession. Meanwhile, the United States is movingsoldiers and Marines to Iran’s border. And Iran has mobilized its own squad ofsuicide bombers.

And as the days tick by and the obstacles mount,they realize that everything they do may not be enough…



The Wolves (#10)
Image

John Wells has just barely managed to stop an operation designed todrive the United States and Iran into war, but the instigator himselfdisappeared behind an impenetrable war of security. Now it’s time for him topay, and Wells has made it his personal mission. There are plenty ofcrosscurrents at work, though. The White House doesn’t want anybody stirringthe pot; his old CIA bosses have their own agendas; other countries arestarting to sniff around, sensing something unusual. It is when Russia and Chinaenter the mix, however, that the whole affair is set to combust. With alarmingspeed, Wells is once again on his own . . . and the wolves are closing in.



ThePrisoner (#11)
Image

It is the most dangerous mission of John Wells’s career.

Evidence is mounting that someone high up in theCIA is doing the unthinkable—passing messages to ISIS, alerting them to plannedoperations. Finding out the mole’s identity without alerting him, however, willbe very hard, and to accomplish it, Wells will have to do something he thoughthe’d left behind forever. He will have to reassume his former identity as an alQaeda jihadi, get captured, and go undercover to befriend an ISIS prisoner in asecret Bulgarian prison.

Many years before, Wells was the only Americanagent ever to penetrate al Qaeda, but times have changed drastically. Theterrorist organizations have multiplied: gotten bigger, crueler, more ambitiousand powerful. Wells knows it may well be his death sentence. But there is noone else.

Here Is #12 Of The John Wells Series.



It was supposed to be a terrorist sting. The guns were supposed to be disabled. Then why was there so much blood?
The target was the American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks. The FBI had told Ahmed Shakir that his drug bust would go away if he helped them, and they'd supply all the weaponry, carefully removing the firing pins before the main event. It never occurred to Ahmed to doubt them, until it was too late.

When John Wells is called to Washington, he's sure it's to investigate the carnage in Dallas, but it isn't. The former CIA director, now president, Vinnie Duto has plenty of people working in Texas. He wants Wells to go to Colombia. An old asset there has information to share--and it will lead Wells to the deadliest mission of his life, an extraordinary confluence of sleeper cells, sniper teams, false flag operations, double agents high in the U.S. government--and a Russian plot to take over the government itself. If it succeeds, what happened in Texas will be only a prelude.


Enjoy The Addition Friends.
