A John Wells Novel

John Wells returns to Afghanistan—the country where his career began—in this gripping thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Alex Berenson.
In late 2009, CIA officers in Afghanistan’s Kabul station allowed a Jordanian doctor into their closest confidence. In truth, the doctor was an al-Qaeda double agent—and when he blew himself up, the station’s most senior officers died with him.
Years later, the station still hasn’t recovered. Recruiting has dried up and the agency’s best Afghani sources are being eliminated. At Langley, the CIA’s chiefs begin to suspect the worst: somehow, the Taliban has infiltrated the station.
When they ask John Wells to investigate, he reluctantly agrees. One thing is certain: Americans are dying, and an American is responsible. Wells is the only one who can unearth the truth—if it doesn’t bury him first...

Can someone please help?? I pre-ordered this book(and two others), and cannot complete the download. I am in a continuous loop of download hell. It keeps bouncing me when I press "Download" by saying that I " ...have already purchased this book. Go to Purchases and tap Download".......and the loop starts again. This is the third book that this has happened to me when pre-ordering. HELP!!!
Ho hum, another year, another book.
Wells, Schaffer & Duto are great characters, well developed in earlier books, but dismally shallow in this installment. The plot was as deep as a comic strip panel. This last entry in the John Wells saga certainly relied on the character development and successes of previous books. This book on its own would not have gone far without the reputation that Berenson earned from previous entries.
It's very disappointing to wait for a new book from a favorite author only to find that he has either missed a beat with this one or is sliding down the slope of lazy authors who just pump out short poor plots as new episodes and rely on past successes for sales.
Come on Alex, you can do better and we as your audience deserve better.
P.S. It's Wells, Schaffer, Duto and the CIA as well as a much deeper mystery that you need to develop. Wells' attempt to rekindle his father/ son relationship is NOT why your fans buy these books.
