Yes, great first two book in the series...One question, am I crazy or does Jessica character start out with Irish accent, then English, then back to Irish in second book?
I just had to stop listening to this book! The author writes well but has no clue whatever about military technology. He calls the muzzle of a gun a "nozzle" like it was a garden hose. He has helicopters made of steel (they would be too heavy to fly). He has air-to-air missiles demolishing ground targets (he apparently does not understand why they are called "air-to-air" missiles)!
He either needs a consultant that can explain this to him or needs to stop writing about military matters.
Bottom line is if you know anything about the military, avoid this book. If you do not and want to be misinformed, go ahead and listen!
Yes. I also like the Marvel comic book movies. Both are a lot of fun but totally unrealistic.
Crusader, a SF book.
He's an excellent narrator, much stronger than the author and book editor.
The author and editor need to learn a lot more about the weapons they use in the plot. An air-to-air missile is exactly that and not an air-to-ground attack missile> It wouldn't have any guidance methodology and its relatively small warhead would not leave a 100-foot diameter crater.
More irritating is the continued use of "nozzle" instead of "muzzle" when describing the business end of a pistol or rifle. Maybe the author actually armed Dewey with a Super Soaker.
Do your homework Mr. Coes and please, please get an editor who can catch these obvious errors.
incredible heart pounding action, vivid details and mesmerizing story. True to life plot and scenarios.
I do wish they would stop saying "cartridge" on detailing a kill when the bullet or projectile is the correct word for that. lol, other than that that facts are spot on accurate demonstrating phenomenal research and publisher fact checking!
Although this is the second book in the series it stands alone. The action starts with the first page and continues to the last period. There is one error in the story and the plot surrounding the error is predictable but only serves to make the reader feel that he is as on top of the story as the writer.
What was most entertaining about this book was the detailed descriptions of the actions. Detailed to the point that the reader could see what was happening coupled with the grace of not bringing down the action. It was like watching the story in the theater. You can easily forget that you are listening instead of seeing.
The villains are bigger than life, the heroes are up to the challenge. There is a little something for everyone although not for the faint of heart.
I highly recommend this book and although I haven't started the third installment it's just because there are so many good books out there and so little time.
The reader is highly skilled and only added to the action and suspense. The characters were easy to define due to his skills.
I would read more of these books, but the language is horrible. I get enough of that in daily life, I don't need it in my entertainment.
I'd put Coup at the bottom of the list of this type of story. Good, but not so much compared to others.
The action is fairly constant. Few gaps that myake it easy to leave.
Accents and inflections. The only good accents the narrator does is Indian. Other than that, not much. Sometimes it's difficult to tell Dewey from someone else. Irish accent for Jessica? Nope.
A chilling account of the hostility between Pakistan and India, and what it could mean.
I'm a stickler for details. One, there's no such thing as a nozzle of a gun. It's a barrel. Are you kidding me? Who says this? Second, it's a suppressor, not a silencer. Finally, I don't recall the aircraft type. It was a Sukhoi of the Indian airforce. It's SU, not sue. These things are kind of nitpicky, but if you're going to use terminology, use it correctly.
