  • do we have to read the books in order or can I read them randomly?

    • You COULD read them randomly no problem – but it’s recommended you read in order. Things in certain books will relate to previous books, character growth and relationships etc.

    • Rick Duerr

      Absolutely read them in order. There are so many things that are a part of who John Wells was, is and will become. This is one of the very best series “spy” novels I have read. I read roughly 3 books per week and while they are mostly brain fodder, reading has given me a place to escape to. I have gained a healthy knowledge of the hard work it takes to write a great novel compared to just putting in the time. Wherever possible read all series in order even though some may not matter. This author is a gifted writer. Thanks, Alex Berenson!

      • Agreed – absolutely incredible series. What I liked when I read them back to back was that Berenson was great with catching the reader up. With writers like Vince Flynn I found he’d introduce a recurring character and basically copy/paste what he’d written the previous book about them. Berenson did it in a way that it’d catch up any new reader but wrote it new for us who were reading in order etc.
