AUDIOFILE Golden Voice George Guidall turns in another masterful performance in Edgar Award winner Alex Berenson’s second novel focusing on CIA agent John Wells. Guidall strikes not a false note as Wells sets out to defuse a potentially explosive situation. After a CIA extraction goes bad in North Korean waters, the powers that be realize there’s a mole in the intelligence network. Wells, who recently foiled an Islamic terrorist plot in Times Square (THE FAITHFUL SPY) and who is at the top of Bin Laden’s hit list, must return to Afghanistan to ferret out the mole. Guidall’s facility with international accents and his ability to ramp up the action while creating three-dimensional characters with the slightest nuance make Berenson’s taut, smart writing frighteningly plausible.
