World Champion Parallel Parker
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
Long commutes need something to remove the boredom! Love history, mysteries/thrillers, scifi and bios, but read a little bit of everything.
This was another great Dewey Andreas book, trailing on from the end of the first in the series. Coes does a great job of developing the characters and plots (yes, there are a number of sub-plots intertwining with the main) and David DeVries provides a great narration performance. Can't really say anything bad about this book. Takes some very interesting twists and turns and doesn't entirely end up where you expect it to.
As I keep up with many Character novels (Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Cussler). Dewey has quickly moved to the top of the list. Ben Coes dies a great job of keeping your attention and tying the plot together.
Looking forward to the next installment
In the series. Dewey Andreas is a great character
At a time when so many authors cut corners on their stories, Ben Goes ups it 10 notches. Well developed, well researched, great story! Buying his next book now!
