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.

I liked a lot about this book. The action held my attention during my hour long commute to work. The inciting incident was one of the most often used cliches in this genre. I kept hoping the author would do something fresh to get Dewey into revenge mode, right up until it happened. Despite my disappointment regarding the inciting incident (I'd love to go more in depth about why I was unhappy with that incident but it would require spoilers.) there were still a few twists further into the story that I didn't expect. It was a fun ride.
Regarding Peter Hermann's performance: For me his performance was at it's best when stuff was happening. His voice really suits the character but During theDewey's Brainspace moments though, his voice would get a little bit monotone and on the mornings when I hadn't had enough coffee it would make it difficult for me to stay awake. When the action kicked into gear, though, I really appreciated him.
I could not stop listening to this one.
Dewey and the rest of the gang were great. All the characters were believable.
The narration was great.
there was just one unbelievable scenarios after another that made the whole book incredible and therefore not enjoyable. one couldn't even believe that a superhero character could make all this happen.
