I just read the fifth John Wells thriller and loved it, Well's is on his own with a new partner and are hired by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia to help stop a new terrorist group sponsored by Abdullah's brother Saeed. Very timely with all the turmoil in the Mid East.

I was attending "Love is Murder" mystery conference on 2/6 and was lucky to hear and talk to spy author "Joseph Finder", he gave a great talk on the burgeoning business of private spy companies working freelance for Corporations and rich people. See his new book Vanished.

This is the newest book by "Eisler" it features his newest spy "Ben Treven", this is his second book with Treven. It's a great new series, and you might want to try his earlier "John Rain" series.
