The narration was such a hodge podge of incredibly bad New Orleans, southern, and cajun accents that it made the experience of the book probably seem worse that it actually was.
Non-stop action, thrills, and suspense from start to finish. I enjoyed POWER DOWN and recommend it highly, but COUP D'ETAT pushed the thrill level to the nuclear end of the scale as Dewey Andreas races to save us from World War III.
David de Vries' performance is masterful. Sometimes accents and gender inflections can spoil the listening experience. In this case an excellent novel is enhanced by extraordinary narration of a book that would be a test for any narrator. Mr. de Vries passes the test with an A+. I'd like to hear more novels of this genre read by him.
The book and narration are superior entertainment. If you are fan of contemporary politcal action thrillers, and you are on the fence about getting COUP D'ETAT...jump down on the side of Ben Coes. You will not be disappointed.
