Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author and Edgar Award winner Alex Berenson comes a supercharged thriller about marriage and the dangerous secrets spouses keep.

Rebecca and Brian Unsworth appear to have it all. A nice house in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Two well-behaved, healthy teenage children. Important government jobs - Rebecca working in counterterrorism for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Brian serving as a coder for the National Security Agency. Their lives stand to improve even more as Brian, in his off-hours, has just developed and sold a highly profitable app. 

However, the Unsworths’ marriage isn’t as perfect as it seems. After two decades together, they’ve drifted apart, talking little and having sex even less. Seeking to revive their strained relationship, they decide for their 20th wedding anniversary to take their two kids, Kira and Tony, on a European getaway. 

They have a blast…until one night in Barcelona when Kira doesn’t come home from a dance club. She’s gone. Abducted. Over the course of a single weekend, the Unsworths will do everything possible to find her - as Kira herself discovers just how far she’ll go to break free of the trap that’s been set for her. And even as Rebecca and Brian come together for Kira, they realize their marriage is more tenuous than they realized. 

The Power Couple is both a fast-paced, globe-trotting espionage novel full of surprising twists and a nuanced look at modern marriage - the challenges of balancing career, parenthood, sex, and love.

Excellent! Superb writing and story telling. Alex Berenson delivered again

This book received 15 stars because it deserved all of them. The story was engaging and fast paced. The characters very well developed and relatable. Twists and turns throughout kept me wanting more. Narration was superb. Very well done all the way around and I highly recommend!

Weird novel by Alex Berenson

After listening to the entire John Wells espionage series by Alex Berenson THE POWER COUPLE is a surprise. I prefer the John Wells series. The Power Couple is about a married pair with two children ages 20 and 18 (at the end of the novel). As for the couple she is a lawyer and a senior FBI agent and he works for the National Security Agency. During a family vacation in Spain their 19 year old daughter is kidnapped, apparently for ransom. The power Couple is a complex tale that moves quickly and keeps the listener's interest.

This novel is very different from prior Alex Berenson books. Berenson has become much more famous during the last year because of his unorthodox views concerning Covid-19.

My thanks go to Shelley of Raleigh NC for her comments in her review of Search for Her.

Great book

It’s certainly a shame that politics have blacklisted you. I thought that ended in the ‘50’s. But the Lib’s have certainly resurrected that ugly past. I found your book exciting and what a twist at the end. I must admit I bought it because I saw you on FOX and thought how unfairly you were treated. And you were for you are a very talented author!

He’s done it again.

America’s preeminent thriller writer has come out with a nasty, fantastic bit of darkness. As much an autopsy of a troubled marriage as a straight ahead kidnapping plot this book does not lack for surprises.

A great and earned ending.

I can’t believe I listened to the whole thing

This was one of the worst books of the over 200 audible books I have listened. The last 5 hours of the book I was listening to it like a driver slowing down to look at a car crash on the freeway. From the narrators tedious accents to the plot full of more potholes than an NYC expressway in February this book is really really bad. Run away.

Went to sex scenes that were not necessary.

Having daughters in forced sex is not good reading. Ruined a good book and was lewd

A. B. Didn’t Write This

I would say more but I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Pretty sure it’s too late to give it back and get a refund.
Day2. I’m still listening... hoping it will get better. It isn’t. Is it supposed to be like a female John wells? The narrator is definitely not helping. Fastforwarded thru part 2 “history of Rebecca”. It isn’t just the narrator. This is bad writing; bad story. I hate it. Alex please write something. Anything. I miss you. Ok, chapt. 19 is as far as I can get. I can’t. Gonna try for a refund.
