The New York Times bestseller Interfering with the presidential election was just the first step.
This is Alex Berenson's twelfth novel featuring John Wells. As a reporter for The New York Times, Berenson covered topics ranging from the occupation of Iraq-where he was stationed for three months-to the flooding of New Orleans, to the world pharmaceutical industry, to the financial crimes of Bernard Madoff. He graduated from Yale University in 1994 with degrees in history and economics, and lives in New York City. The Faithful Spy won the 2007 Edgar Award for best first novel.

nearly as unbelievable as it should be."--Booklist (starred review)
