Online PR News – 02-February-2010 – – Tualatin, Oregon, February 1, 2009 - With his first three books featuring tough-as-nails CIA agent John Wellsâ€”The Faithful Spy, The Ghost War, and The Silent Manâ€”Alex Berenson earned praise for creating stories that are â€śhighly plausible, even inevitableâ€ť (USA Today).
In The Midnight House he explores issues surrounding a topic that has lead to some of the most contentious debates this country has experienced since 9/11â€”torture rendition, and some of the extra-legal activities that have been used by the U.S. during the war on terrorâ€”and delivers the seamless plotting and edge-of-the-seat action that have made him one of the premier suspense thriller authors writing today.
â€śA superbly crafted spy thriller that doubles as a gripping mystery; the reader has no idea who the killer is until Wells figures it out.â€ť (Kirkus Reviews).
Alex Berenson was born in New York in 1973. After graduating from Yale University in 1994 with degrees in history and economics, he joined the Denver Post as a reporter. In 1999, he joined the New York Times where he has covered everything from the drug industry to Hurricane Katrina; in 2003 and 2004, he served two stints as a correspondent in Iraq, an experience that led him to write The Faithful Spy, his debut novel, which won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best First Novel.
â€śAs he did with award-winning The Faithful Spy Berenson uses his real-life experiences and excellent journalistic skills to create a gripping novel.â€ť-- John Hutchinson, co-owner of VJ Books. The Midnight House is now available at www.vjbooks.com.
