The Silent Man

(2009)
(The third book in the John Wells series)
A novel by

 
From the #1 New York Times- bestselling author comes another remarkable novel of espionage today - and right around the corner.

Alex Berenson's The Faithful Spy was declared 'one of the best spy stories ever told' (The Wall Street Journal), and The Ghost War 'mesmerizing . . . an extraordinary achievement. Wells is a complex blend of smarts, scars, cynicism and wile. And the book's imaginings seem not so much '-ripped from the headlines' as eerily destined to be set in type for tomorrow's' (The News & Observer). Berenson's third novel, however, is his most masterful yet.

It isn't easy to steal warheads from the heart of Russia's nuclear complex in Mayak. It requires a great deal of money, coordination, ingenuity, and sleight-of-hand, and just a touch of luck. But if you're determined enough, anything is possible.


It's been a rough few years for CIA agent John Wells. The undercover work in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the attack on the United States, the Chinese plot that could have led to war. Wells is exhausted, and his nights filled with disturbing dreams. But he knows he has no time for that. He has made many enemies, and the world won't stay quiet for long.

Nevertheless, Wells is not prepared for what is about to happen. He and his colleague - and fiancée - Jennifer Exley are driving into work when traffic comes to a standstill, due to accidents on both bridges into Washington. A pretty big coincidence, he thinks, beginning to get a bad feeling - a feeling that only gets worse when he spots the red motorcycle zooming up between cars toward him. Before the day is over, several people will be dead or severely injured, Exley among them, and Wells will be a man possessed.

The attackers are Russian, and it is to Russia that Wells must follow the trail. He finds what he's looking for - but also a great deal more. A plan of almost unimaginable consequences is in motion, and Wells has no idea if he has discovered it in time. The last few years have been rough indeed, but the next few weeks will be much, much worse.

Real-world threats, authentic details, a scenario as dramatic as it is chillingly plausible, Alex Berenson's new novel is another 'timely reminder of the extremely precarious way we live now' (The Washington Post).
