Coup d'Etat: Dewey Andreas, Book 2

When a fragile peace breaks down and promptly devolves into a rapidly escalating shooting war between Pakistan and India, the U.S. must intervene.

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!

    "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.

    "Good once it gets going and better than book 1"

    The second book in the Dewey Andreas series was much better than the first book although it took a while to get going. The first third of the book sets the stage with a lot of back story and not much action, but once Dewey gets involved it starts to pick up. It contains a bit of over the top nationalism but it’s a good ride none the less with a lot of action to keep it going.

    Mr. de Vries does a great job with the narration and all of the accents that are needed.

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

    David's Pakastani and Indian accents are perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    From time to time, Ben, or his editors, need to do some fact checking, For example, C-130s have aluminum not "steel" wings, and the Eurocopter Panther has a pair of turbine engines running jet fuel not "gas."

    "Great book, just lacking in the details"
    Any additional comments?

    I listened to Ben Coes first book and wrote a review praising the research and the attention to detail. I listened to this book expecting the same and was keenly being Australian was keenly interested in the part of the story based here. I was sadly disappointed in the small things, calling a police officer deputy, no such thing as deputy here in Australia, try Constable. And using miles instead of KM's. Australia hasn't used this terminology for over 30 years.

    My only other gripe is the way the 'terrorists' are portrayed and they words and language used, I know we all hate terrorists, but the way these terrorists and the language they use is beyond a joke and is unrealistic. I don't recall another spy type thriller where the islamic terrorists constantly used the word Fuck.
