Publisher's Summary

In Ben Coes' latest, Eye for an Eye, Dewey Andreas faces the toughest odds of his life as one of China's most powerful men has decided to do whatever he must to take down Dewey - and inflicts a horrifying loss.

When Dewey uncovers the identity of a mole embedded at a high level in Israel’s Mossad, it triggers a larger, more dangerous plot. The mole was the most important asset of Chinese Intelligence, and Fao Bhang, head of China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), responds to the discovery and brutal elimination of the mole, by immediately placing a kill order on the man responsible - Dewey Andreas.

Once he learns who is probably behind the attack - and why they are after him - Dewey goes rogue, using all of his assets and skills to launch a counterattack. Andreas must now face the full weight and might of the MSS, Chinese Intelligence, and the formidable Fao Bhang, if he’s to achieve his one last goal: revenge on a biblical scale, no matter the odds or the armies that he will have to fight his way through.

Andreas - former Army Ranger and Delta - is a man of great skills and cunning. His opponent, Fao Bhang, is ruthless, determined, and with no limit to the assets at his disposal. In this conflict, there are only two possible outcomes. And only one Dewey Andreas.

    Story
    "Another Impossible Hero"

    The Dewey Andreas series follows the same plot line and general tenor of Brad Thor's Scott Harvath series. The hero never gets shot even though he waltzes through a hail of bullets, and everyone else gets killed. I can deal with this; it is not as real as for example Steven Hunter's excellent Bob Lee Swagger series, but it is good for quick entertainment.

    Ordinarily I would have given this book a 4 for story as it was predictable and didn't keep me guessing, but was otherwise an enjoyable read. But I had to take it down a notch for the way the novel was resolved. While the approach was indeed novel, it so strained the suspension of disbelief as to be difficult to swallow. Without revealing the ending, I would say it was like having the tooth fairy intervene. It just was not tethered to the way the world really works.

    But if you like Harvath, Mitch Rapp, and that kind of super-agent-hero, then you'll be right at home in this book. It is worth your time for the voice characterizations alone. It was a great performance by the reader.

    "Tops of the Dewey Andreas series so far!"

    I love thrillers and this one is about as good as it gets. A kill order on Dewey sets in motion a series of events which cause Dewey to go rogue looking for those responsible. This is one of those listens you won't easily be able to put down. Highly recommend.

    "Great story until the rediculous ending"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book because the author did not write a plausible conclusion to the story.


    What was most disappointing about Ben Coes’s story?

    Mission impossible style to the conclusion which really disappoints.

    "Author Cop Out......spoiler"
    Would you try another book from Ben Coes and/or Peter Hermann?

    No More


    Has Eye for an Eye turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not unless they do the same cop out


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eye for an Eye?

    Killing of my favorite character


    Any additional comments?

    When the author can't figure out how to motivate his main character without killing off one of the best characters in the books then he should not write this book and go start something else.
    That Character could have been the base for a different series or would have added something to this one if developed but no had to cop out and kill her off.

    "Coes is in elite company"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Over the years I've read lots of great thrillers --- Forsythe, Ludlum, Cussler. Ben Coes is in that elite company. And Peter Hermann is a great narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story moves! Yes, there are lots of action sequences, but even when he is being expository, Coes still moves the story along.

    "Dewey Don't Diddle... A Pretty Good New Series"

    I think Ben Coes' novels have gotten better as they have been written, it took me a little to get used to a bad-ass named after a library filing system, but the writer does a decent job doing what many action/espionage authors can't do effectively or realistically, but Coes does do it entertainingly.

    I'm a little upset that the author chose a common route for a protagonist catalyst but all authors eventually use it in an operatives life, obv. if u read the 1st book - MINOR SPOILER-Not only has this tragedy occurred before but D. was also Blamed for it (In my eyes its just a easy topic to write about because it garners vengeance, anger, & violence for revenge that lasts a lifetime without needing to add any large conspiracies). Although I'd much rather read a geo-political sub-plot or underlying 'red herring' mission to throw off an assassination, 'cloak & dagger', etc... Coes is creating a character similar to Mitch Rapp but with a mentally borderline, deathwish, pit-bull persona since the first book. Perhaps the difference btwn CIA Uber-agent & Delta, Mitch Rapp is a surgical instrument & America's 'golden boy' while the latter is a hammer whose loyalties were questioned in the past & carries vicious memories which are reflected in his personality. The narrator does an excellent job creating all voices esp. his antagonist's, u can compare with the 1st two books because there were 2 different narrators. Peter's narration is worlds better.

    In this book, which I believe is the best of the 4 even with easily guessed motives & the ultimate ending, u read this for the entertainment & fun listening to a one man wrecking crew bash heads. Its funny that one of the other reviewers mentioned some basic inaccuracies such as the N.E. story regarding maple syrup but she does bring up an interesting point, I know nothing about syrup or molasses but in these books u need to obv. suspend belief, esp. with the actions undertaken by a few to take on a billion Chinese lol, or in this case the MSS & the global repercussions. China truly is a sleeping dragon for Americans in the future in so many area's, this could be distracting, BUT only if ur looking for more content than a simple action/thriller book.

    P.S. If u like the undercurrents of geo-political espionage I recommend reading Barry Eisler, he was not only in the field but loves to rant about false flags, world wide oligarchy's, 'the guy behind the guy' stuff lol

    "AWESOME Ride that I couldn't put down"
    What made the experience of listening to Eye for an Eye the most enjoyable?

    I have been working my way through a lot of thriller authors and Ben Coes is hands down my favorite. The characters are brought to life and each of them seems plausible and realistic. His stories never lag but are always moving. I like the way he jumps from scene to scene and yet the cohesiveness of the story is always maintained. Ben…hurry and write some more!!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dewey Andreas is my favorite hero. He struggles with his emotions, he is tough but approachable, committed to friendship, loyal, patriotic, bad ass but funny, tough as nails but tender when needed. He is the most well rounded action hero thus far in my listening library ( and it is a big one)


    What about Peter Hermann’s performance did you like?

    I am an audible book addict and especially with mysteries and thrillers. Peter Hermann is the BEST narrator that I have ever heard. I love the way he uses different accents, inflections,pauses and characteristics to differentiate each character. I hope to hear more of him in the future!!!!


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

    One of my complaints with the heroes in these tough guy action stories is that they are so unemotional and dysfunctional that they will never have a long term committed relationship with a woman. In this story the readers get to see the grief and agony that Dewey experiences and that makes the hero much more realistic. It just makes me root for him all the more.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait till the next one and I hope Ben Coes uses the same narrator because he is PERFECT.

    "The Best Dewey Andreas yet."

    Ben Coes needs more books. More Dewey. This book is the best but very sad at times for what Dewey goes through. But in the end The hero comes out on top but is left with the scars of an emotional struggle that is worse than anything Dewey has endured to date. Mr. Coes hurry up with Book five.

    Ben Coes is the top dog in the espionage terrorism genre right now. Dewey Andreas is as bad as they come. If the country is in trouble better call Dewey. Just don't let him care about you. Great books. Every one is fantastic.

    "Top notch thriller"
    What made the experience of listening to Eye for an Eye the most enjoyable?

    Simple . . . Dewey Andreas brought to life brilliantly by Peter Hermann


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eye for an Eye?

    The interrogation of the MSS agent by Fao Bhang


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

    The hotel scene in Florida; very believable and dare I say heart wrenching description of what Dewey was going through.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely love all the Dewey Andreas books, Ben Coes brings a level of detail and reality to the stories that no other of his peers can match. Although Eye for an Eye is somewhat more fantastical than the other DA books.
