This is my first John Wells, and I really like the character. Berenson gets the details right about the politics, the culture and the military perspective. I really enjoy the accurate insights regarding the Montana aspects of the story, because they ring true. I lived there and he's spot on. I hope to relish the other 6 books in this series as much as I enjoyed this one.

An excellent adventure. Excellent plot and well-defined characters. Would definitely recommend it, and will read his other books.

"Meticulously researched (details abound about refugee camps, drone technology, and Somali culture) and incredibly tense, The Night Ranger is the 7th in a consistently nerve-wracking series. The 6th (The Shadow Patrol) made it onto the 2012 Crime Writers Association Steel Dagger long-list, and if you enjoy this series for its honourable hero, fast-paced plotting, and believable enemies, you may want to try Jack Higgins' series featuring Sean Dillon, an ex-IRA terrorist turned (eventually) British anti-terrorist agent."

Berenson is back to the reason I started reading him. This book changes his usual story location. This is close to the best he has written.

In my opinion, typical Berenson - slow start; fast finish. If you like this author, worth the read.

Did these foreigners know that their plastic sacks of grain and sugar fed - literally -- the war and the soldiers who fought it?

The endless assassinations damaged America's moral standing. They would inevitably create a new generation of terrorists desperate to revenge themselves on American soil.
