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.

    "Just as good maybe better than first!"
    What made the experience of listening to Coup d'Etat the most enjoyable?

    The particular attention to minor details adds to clarify the story and enhance the mental picture


    Any additional comments?

    narrator did a good job, but compared to the narrator of the first book who made Dewey sound like a snarling pit bull, which by the way matched his character perfectly, this narrator made Dewey sound like a kid...not quite as menacing as I think the author intended.

    Story
    "Watch out Mitch Rapp there's a new sheriff in town"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    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.


    What about David de Vries???s performance did you like?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Coes is stepping it up to Flynn and Thor level."
    What did you love best about Coup d'Etat?

    Significanlty better naration than the first in the series. I almost didn't give this one a fair shot. Well written and produced. Mr Coes and Mr de Vries kept me in play the entire novel and I'm excited for the next adventure.


    What other book might you compare Coup d'Etat to and why?

    This is a great alternate for Flynn and Thor fans.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    Story
    "Fantastic intrique! Highly recommend!"

    A great story. A action packed plot which gives insight into the historic and current clash between the Islamic Pakistan and the Hindu India. Shows how the US and China could get involved in a horrific war if Pakistan were ruled by a extreme radical cleric as its President, with control of nuclear bombs. This story goes beyond most counter-terrorist stories in that this story shows what might happen if the hero is too late to stop the deployment of a tactical nuclear bomb. This is an intelligent as well as super action packed novel narrated by David de Vries, who does a far superior job of narration in this second in the series starring the hero, Dewey Andreas. Helps us understand why Pakistan is not the best friend of America and why we need to view their friendship carefully. Now I understand why President Obama did not trust the Pakistani government when we staged the successful kill of Osama Bin Laden. President Obama has balls.

    Story
    "Move over Mitch & Jack - Here comes Dewey"

    Like many, I am a BIG fan of Flynn's Rapp and Child's Reacher. I intend for them the highest respect when I say Dewey belongs on their same Mt Rushmore of outstanding modern day action heroes..... After listening to Power Down I immediately bought/downloaded Coup D'etat but was sure it could not be "as good" as the first. IT IS as good. Ben Coes' two books (a third is not yet on audio) MUST be read in sequence for maximum understanding.

    Yes, this gendre has predictable plots and I have read/listened to enough of them to become quite adept at "knowing whats going to happen". That said, Coes manages to get Dewey in some unexpected situations.

    I don't dissect my audio books for minute literary flaw, I simply enjoy them. I have enjoyed Ben Coes & Dewey VERY MUCH. MORE PLEASE Mr Coes.

    Would you try another book from Ben Coes and/or David de Vries?

    Never

    Just incredibly disrespectful of Arabs and a powerful one way racial prejudice.
    Totally arrogant

    Good narrator working with junk.
    Story was way too long with lots of unimportant dribble.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none

    an insult to good writing
