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.

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

    The Dewey Andreas books have me hooked. Keep bringing them on!


    Which character – as performed by David de Vries – was your favorite?

    His fluency with accents adds immeasurably to the story telling

    "The narrator needs help"

    The accents were so bad it was distracting. The Indians and Pakistanis sounded Scottish and the Israelis sounded French. Other than that the book was 'ok'. The writer requires that you abandon certain parts of reality like, physics and the level of qualifications in the US clandestine or special ops world... But other than that it's ok.

    "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.

    "Loved the setup..."

    I really enjoyed the setup of the story. Unavoidable nuclear war involving India and Pakistan, and dragging in their allies, China and the U.S. Putting that whole thing together was great. I felt that it became a bit more workaday thereafter. I enjoy Dewey Andreas (this was my 2nd) and will probably listen to more.

    The narrator did a solid job. The voice characterizations were very strong...at least for someone who doesn't hang around a lot with native Indian speakers. There were a number of terms where I felt he missed the common pronunciations, but it wasn't enough to distract greatly from the story.

    Good stuff!
