When a fragile peace breaks down and promptly devolves into a rapidly escalating shooting war between Pakistan and India, the U.S. must intervene. With only hours remaining before the conflict reaches a deadly point of no return, the White House must find a way to shut it down immediately or risk the likelihood of a new global war.

Publisher's Summary

When a fragile peace breaks down and promptly devolves into a rapidly escalating shooting war between Pakistan and India, the United States is forced to intervene. With only hours remaining before the conflict reaches a deadly point of no return, the White House must find a way to shut it down immediately - or risk the likelihood of a new global war.

A radical cleric has become the democratically elected president of Pakistan and uses a brutal incident in the Kashmir region as an opportunity to ignite war with India. The highly lethal conventional war spins out of control when Pakistan initiates a nuclear attack. India is on the verge of launching their own nuclear response, one that will have unimaginably disastrous results for both the United States and the world at large.

With only one chance to head this off, the president of the United States sends in his best people to do whatever it takes to restore the fragile peace to the region. With the clock ticking and Pakistan in the hands of a religious radical willing to do anything to destroy India, there remains only one viable option: to execute a coup d’état in Pakistan.

There is only one man with the skills and experience to infiltrate the live war theater and remove the Pakistani president from power. Only one man the White House can trust. His name: Dewey Andreas. Now they have to find him before time runs out.

From the author of the critically acclaimed thriller Power Down comes the latest ripped-from-the-headlines novel featuring his indelible and indomitable protagonist, the unforgettable Dewey Andreas.

    "action packed"

    My second book by author Ben Coes, the second book in the series. The US along with the Rand Corp and others I'm sure, are always studying different world conflict scenarios, thinking though the scenarios coming up with issues, outcomes, all that the scenarios would entail. I'm guessing the author to some extent at least knows of these scenarios and this book is one of them. Along with the US, Indian, Pakistan, China, Lebanon, and Israel all play a part in this non-stop action packed thriller with super agent Dewey Andreas at the heart of the action. There seems to be no regard for loss of life in these types of books. And, sometimes the scenarios seem a bit far fetched but not completely. I would hope these scenarios would never play out but you never know. At least this author tells a good story of fiction that keeps you entertained.

    "Unreal!!!"

    This might just be the best book I have ever read. The action never stops. The plot is so intricate and so well conceived it is unbelievable. I can't believe this is only his second book. I can't get enough of Dewey Andreas. Kudos Ben Coes.

    "Really? Really?"

    In all the world? Only one guy to do this job? Nobody younger, quicker, without a price tag on their head? I enjoyed "Power Down" because it moved in a logical manner. This one left me wondering what was the author thinking? He should have created a different person for this book. And what happened to Jessica's accent?

    "You won't put this one down!"

    Great follow-up to the first book. Very believable plot with non-stop action. You won't put this one down until the end. Can't wait to read the next in the series. Look out Mitch Rapp, you have a contender!

    Story
    "hard to get interested in"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    found I had to rewind a couple times along the way to follow what was going on


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    the last few chapters when the story was coming to an end and started making sense


    What aspect of David de Vries’s performance would you have changed?

    I think it was more the story then the performance.


    Did Coup d'Etat inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    wish I wouldn't of wasted the money. should have waited until i could have rented it from the local library.

    "Another Exciting Adventure!"
    Any additional comments?

    In Coup d'Etat, Ben Coes has written another fast-paced, exciting adventure for Dewey Andreas, the protagonist first introduced in Power Down. Although it is not a necessity to listen to Power Down first, you will get a lot more out of Coup d'Etat if you start from the beginning. David de Vries gives a fantastic performance making the character's easy to identify and follow throughout the story. If you enjoy Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, David Hagberg, Mark Greaney, you will quicly get caught up in Coup d'Etat.

    "Coes needs a research assistant"
    What made the experience of listening to Coup d'Etat the most enjoyable?

    Great story, Great plot , Great Narration,


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Coes clearly knows nothing about Australia, and absolutely nothing about Aviation. I hate how he writes so much detail that is so wrong, Even basic stuff like a C130 (or any airplane is made from Aluminium, not Steel ) they don't have steel wings, nor steel panels - so wrong, Even referring to steel cable as wire , so wrong !! He has no idea of basic physics let alone flight dynamics - so don't go into so much detail that is so clearly wrong. Needs a Aviation consultant !! Also needs an Australia Consultant - everything he wrote on geography and culture is so wrong it next time use Google !!


    Have you listened to any of David de Vries’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Top marks to the Narrator


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    At least he got it right about Fosters , ...... it is p*** water :)
