my only complaint, and this may be petty, is that I became distracted by the performer's sucking in breaths that was quite loud. I wonder if I just hadn't noticed it the 200 audible books before, but the next book's author hasn't done that.
poor research is enough to make this book off putting in first 2 chapters.
Typical bond movie plot which keep you interested even though you can always predict the ending. Narration was good.
It took me a long time to get into this book. Perhaps because Dewey really isn't even mentioned until chapter 15 and because the real action doesn't start until chapter 50, which is almost the end of the book. I thought the first book was great, but I almost gave up on this one. Dewey's character is great and the action when it happens is engaging as well, but based on this one I doubt I'll get another one of these books.

I don't usually read action books - detective, mystery, action, romance, all have formulas and are completely predictable. But then, I think that's why we enjoy them - temporary retreat from reality. I enjoyed it even more when "The Brink" came on, redoing the plot as a satire.
There were no surprises, no twists, no turns, no mystery so no fun for me. Pretty much just straight forward.
Power Down was a much better story.
More research would have made Coup d'Etat better.
Names were wildly inaccurate. This is India / Pakistan NOT Dubai or Iran.
I lived in India during the the 1971 war and remember the air raid sirens waking us up in the middle of the night warning us about Pakistani planes. The story brought back memories and has the potential to be excellent with some changes.
A character like Dewey would certainly stand out in this area of the world and easily taken out by a sniper in the middle of a war between two countries where almost everyone is 5'6". ;)
No comparison to Mitch Rapp who could blend in and could live among the locals while hunting bad guys.
If you like jack reacher , Mitch rapp , Scott Harvath then you'll love Dewey Andreas . Great book great story . Narrator was not very good at times he sounded like quagmire from family guy , but overall great book . I hope they bring back Peter Herman . Peter Herman is Dewey Andreas just like dick hill is jack reacher
This story kept me so enthralled that I used nearly all my free time to listen to it. The story is truly possible in today's age and the detail created vivid images. The narrator did a good job of differentiating characters, however, the main female character was a bit blurred in both description and variation
