Do you often doubt book reviews you read online? You can believe all the five-star reviews of THE POWER COUPLE. This is one of the most well-written and surprising thrillers I've ever read.

The book begins with a "Prologue," and you won't know who's speaking. You'll have to read all the way to the end. Then you will know, and you can re-read the "Prologue."

Rebecca and Brian take their two teenage children, Kira and Tony, on a vacation in Europe. In Spain, Kira disappears. What follows is the search for her, but that's not all.

This is also the story of a marriage, but it is not a romance story. Rebecca is an FBI agent; Brian is with the National Security Agency. Their history is revealed in flashbacks. They may shock you. They definitely will surprise you.

But the end of that story isn't the end of the book. There's more.

This is my first Alex Berenson book. Don't you just love when you find a great author and get to read his backlist?

The leader of a marauding band, that was central to the story, was a beautifully written young Somali bandit who had named himself Wizard because he felt invincible. I found him to be the most interesting character in the story and his presence elevated the story from very good to excellent.… (més)
