"Book 6 in Berenson's John Wells series continues the adventures of this ex-CIA superhero, who is now a private contractor with his old handlers. He's back in Afghanistan investigating a possible CIA-U.S. Army drug-smuggling ring. Narrator George Guidall's character differentiation is clear and clean. He provides an extensive repertoire of character portrayals--from Saudi businessmen and Pashtun warlords to snarky teens. Guidall's famous tough-guy voice is particularly useful in this story replete with Delta Force snipers, CIA operatives, and front-line soldiers. Women come across well. Guidall's impeccable timing also enlivens some slow spots in this otherwise worthy title. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
