When four young volunteers in Kenya decide to take a break from working at a Somali refugee camp, they pile into a Land Cruiser for an adventure. But they get more than they bargained for when they are kidnapped. They wake up in a hut, hooded, bound, no food or water. Hostages.
John Wells is asked to try to find them, but he does so reluctantly. East Africa isn’t his usual playing field. And when he arrives, he finds that the truth behind the kidnappings is far more complex than he imagined.
The clock is ticking and the White House is edging closer to an invasion of Somalia. Wells has a unique ability to go undercover and stir things up, but if he can’t find the hostages soon, they’ll be dead—and the U.S. may be in a war it never should have begun.

Good story, but not the Wells I imagined
If you've liked the John Wells series, you're probably going to like this one, too. The storyline is full of potential and the East Africa setting adds a lot. The story limps as it finishes up, with loose ends left dangling. The author inexplicably has Wells packaging up a spin story that depends on some twenty-somethings reaching a lifelong agreement. This is not the Wells I imagined.
The Night Ranger
An excellent book, easy to read, easy to understand and follow characters. The story line moves along with very few slow spots and many surprises. I'm looking forward to the next book.
Superb & timely. Very well structured. Good character development for the length. Highly recommend.
