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.

    Story
    "Best Coes Yet, Narration was Outstanding"

    The story was the most intricate and involved of all the Coes books, involving a healthy dose of Brits, Chinese and US characters. The narration was very nuanced and full, bringing the characters to life before your ears, with full personalities and excellent differentiation.

    The story? Dewey is a compelling hero, but (like all such heroes) you're going to have to suspend disbelief quite a few times. How many times can you be shot at by machine gun toting pros and not get hit? And the mechanism used near the end to get Dewey close to the protagonist strains credibility; one of the least likely strategies ever formulated.

    But somehow, it all works.The characters are personable and likeable, the story serviceable and the narration just top notch. You'll enjoy yourself so much that you'll just shrug off any deficits and you'll be sad (like I was) that the story had to end.

    If you're unfamiliar with Dewey, where does he fit in in the action hero continuum? Let's assume Jack Reacher is kind of ground zero, super but not superman. Throw Gabriel Allon a bit to his left; even more realistic. At the far right extreme (no political connotation meant) is Mitch Rapp, gone before his time, enjoyable, but not always believable. Scott Harvath is between Reacher and Rapp,

    Dewey is probably on the far side of Harvath, but nowhere close to Rapp. He's more human, more likable, has more personality. No criticism meant, they're all enjoyable, and I've read or listened to every book in all the series. But hopefully, this will help folks unfamiliar with Coes/Dewey understand what they're in for.

    If you like this general genre, you'll love the book.

    "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

    "Pushes credibility off a cliff"
    What disappointed you about Eye for an Eye?

    Although we expect our heros to be larger than life, his ability to not only survive unbelievable car wrecks but come out shooting. Never getting shot even after hundreds of bullets are fired at him, but he only needs 1 shot to kill every time. I expected him to start leaping tall buildings in a single bound by the time I got to the end


    What was most disappointing about Ben Coes’s story?

    No basis in facts what so ever, a plane cannot not just fly around, land in foreign countries with no government involvement especially in China. I now this was fiction, but this was fantasy


    Any additional comments?

    Although I enjoyed the earlier Dewey books, I did not enjoy this one and struggled getting through the second half. Will probably pass on the next one.

    "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.
