The Night Ranger (A John Wells Novel)

Updated on April 26, 2013

The Night Ranger By Alex Berenson

The last book I read was "The Night Ranger", a book by Alex Berenson. The main character in Alex Berenson's books is John Wells, ex CIA, ex Al Queda infiltrator, ex, ex, ex... it's the story of John's life. His wife left him, his son wants nothing to do with him, the love of his life is dead, his new girl wants to get married. One day John gets a call from his son asking for help, and of course, he agrees. This could be a new beginning for these two, and John wants that more than anything.

How can John help? Four young volunteers in Kenya have been kidnapped and one of them happens to be the sister of the girl young Wells is dating. That's how John gets involved in this. He goes in without the help of the CIA and it ends up being more than he bargained for. He's not familiar with Kenya and has no contacts there to help him if he needs it. Worse yet, the plot thickens throughout the entire story, and the situation ends up with one of the volunteers dying and the US ready to send troops in to save these kids.

The picture of the book is from Amazon and you can find the book on this page. With spring and summer coming up you are going to need a good book to read, "The Night Ranger" is a thrilling story, perfect for some summer excitement.

The Seventh John Wells' Book

What's The Night Ranger About?

"The Night Ranger" is the seventh book featuring our hero, John Wells. This book is a bit different than Berenson's others. The setting is very different and so are the circumstances surrounding the events in the book.

The setting of "The Night Ranger" is Somalia.

Four college students are doing some volunteer work in Kenya, near the border of Somalia. The trouble starts when they take a vacation and are kidnapped along the way. Somalian bandits are the culprits and they are looking for some easy money.

One of the students is the sister of a girl Evan Wells is dating. Evan asks his father, John, to help and John cannot say no to his son. Things aren't good between father and son, and Wells has been trying to have a relationship with his child. This is the opening he has been praying for.

Kenya and Somalia are not familiar places to Wells, so he's going in blind with no contacts. It's not a good scenario for a mission, but he goes ahead anyway. If it were too easy, the book wouldn't be as good as it is.

What's The Worst That Could Happen

If You Read One Of These Books?

What's the worst that could happen if you read one of these books? Well, you could decide it's not for you, you don't like reading it. Well, then you just put it down. It's not a big deal, but what if you decide you do like it, and you can't put it down, and you get another author to put on your favorites list? That's what happened to me when I first read "The Faithful Spy". I feel like I met a real live hero, one who cares about what's going on and yes, I know it's fiction, but it feels real. What else can you ask from a book?

I love to find good books to read, so why not share your favorite character and books with me. I might want to check them out for myself! I find it so amazing that a writer can bring his or her characters to life on the pages of a book, so alive that I feel as though I know them. I do so love to read and meet new people, visit new places and see things I've never seen before.
