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
You've read Vince Flynn or Mitch Rapp so you know the character. The lead is Rapp except instead of wandering the back roads of America looking for towns to rescue he's working on an oil rig. He's Flynn except instead of being a bad ass working for the government he's a bad ass not working for the government. Reluctant heroes with super military training. Good main characters though some depth is needed.
The story in this book though is better than the Rapp books and in line with the Flynn books. International terrorists with a plot to destroy America have a plot that only our disgruntled reluctant hero can stop. Fast paced and good story telling with characters we can keep or toss.
Great storyline, fantastic narrator and overall good job by Ben Coes
Dewey Andreas might become the new Mitch Rapp
This book started out with promise, but in the end was disappointing. With a good book i don't want it to end. With this book I found myself anxious for it to end. Too many holes in the plot and the details. Too much graphic violence for me. The author seemed to look for any and every opportunity to drop the F-bomb. This is much easier than using words and language to describe a characters anger, frustration, etc.
No, I wouldn't recommend this book.
