Say something about yourself!
This is my first Ben Coes listen and I am hooked. I have the remaining two books now. I am a Mitch Rapp fan and this guy would fit in nicely in his company. The narrator was perfect and the flow of the book starts slow but builds until you can feel your heart beat as you listen to each word.
The Tip Just Got Sharper!
The story builds in an unlikely place graduely moving you to the center stage. The twists are unexpected and exciting.
I am hooked on my books. I love to take my camper up north and spend the weekend sitting out doors with a drink , watching my dogs
I HAVE NO MORE VINCE FLYNN BOOKS TO READ SO I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A WHILE NOW. IF YOUR LIKE ME WITH MITCH RAPP YOUR GOING TO LOVE THIS BOOK.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT TWO.
I'm a huge Vince Flynn fan and now I'm a Ben Coes fan. Flynn does an amazing job of having his superhero not do things out of the realm of possibility. I feel like Coes maybe let it get a little out of hand sometimes. Just a little to close to death and then JUST making it. However it didn't ruin anything for me and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the narrator and was disappointed to see he doesn't narrate the next two Coes books (which I downloaded immediately after listening to this one).
Action packed patriotism
A really fun spy thriller that makes you not want to stop listening! However, a bit predictable and cheesy at some points. It is more of an action thriller than a great spy novel.
If you like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor and the like, Ben Coes will interest you. Good story, well read, and kept my interest throughout.
In the 70th percentile.
Fast paced and a lot of action.
His style was gripping and the cadence of his narrative kept your attention.
Good all around read.
Ben Coes introduces a great character and has written a story just as good as the very best by Vince Flynn. The narrator though ruined the book by overemphasizing emotions and lacking the skils for foreign accents.
Okay. Story a little far fetched. I have another Ben Coes to read, "The Last Refuge". I have high hopes for it. We'll see.
The sinking of a nuclear bomb in the sea just didn't make sense.
This is a very good book except it seemed to drag on a lot. The story line was very good, but there was too much added to it. We found ourselves saying that we just wanted the story to move along. We probably will not listen to another book by this author.
After the first few chapters, I'm trying to decide whether to finish. The reviews are great and I'm a big fan of Flynn and others in this genre. But the early narration is so bad I don't think I can take it.
Slow delivery. No difference between the characters. No difference in Dewey whether he's talking to crew or reminiscing about his son. Very flat and monotone.
Disappointment. The reviews had been so exciting
