Publisher's Summary

With time running out to stop the nuclear destruction of Tel Aviv, Dewey Andreas must defeat his most fearsome opponent yet.

Off a quiet street in Brooklyn, New York, Israeli Special Forces commander Kohl Meir is captured by operatives of the Iranian secret service, who smuggle Meir back to Iran, where he is imprisoned, tortured, and prepared for a show trial. What they don’t know is that Meir was in New York to recruit Dewey Andreas for a secret operation.

Meir had been tipped off that Iran had finally succeeded in building their first nuclear weapon, one they were planning to use to attack Israel. His source was a high-level Iranian government official and his proof was a photo of the bomb itself. Dewey Andreas, a former Army Ranger and Delta, owes his life to Meir and his team of Israeli commandos. Now, to repay his debt, Dewey has to attempt the impossible - to both rescue Meir from one of the world’s most secure prisons and to find and eliminate Iran’s nuclear bomb before it’s deployed - all without the help or sanction of Israel or America (at the near certain risk of detection by Iran).

Unfortunately, Dewey’s first moves have caught the attention of Abu Paria, the brutal and brilliant head of VEVAK, the Iranian secret service. Now Dewey has to face off against, outwit, and outfight an opponent with equal cunning, skill, and determination, with the fate of millions hanging in the balance.

    "Great Listen, Enjoyed story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, The story captures you, found myself wanting to drive just to get to the next part. There is always something that was mentioned ealier in the story that makes you try to piece together how the story will play out. It was enjoyable as there were action scenes as well as personal moments that you can visualize with great detail.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Logical progression of events. Like the way the action scenes were intertwind with the discussions. For example when Dewey tells the CIA director not to tell Jessica that he is going to help his friend, then Jessica finds out. Many scenes like that were in the story and it gets you thinking "how is this charater going to respond".


    Which character – as performed by Peter Hermann – was your favorite?

    All, Each charaters have their uniqueness and Peter does a great job with each one.

    "Incredible"
    If you could sum up The Last Refuge in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, exciting, exciting


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely. In his distinctive, subdued style, Dewey is pure energy ready to strike.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Hermann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Peter is back, and he is perfect for this series. Check out Private if you like Peter.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hold on for the ride!

    "The more Coes I listen to the more I want"

    I think everyone addicted to audiobooks agrees that the narration can make or break a book. At least that's my call. Peter Hermann is amazing. He's German, Russian, American, Iranian, you name it. I am no linguist but I get the picture regardless of language. Coe provides the story, Hermann brings it to life.

    Can't wait for the next Coe. There has to be a #5, right?

    Great series. I spent the last half of the book thinking of actors to play all the different brilliant characters he's made.

    "Another great one in the series!!"
    Would you listen to The Last Refuge again? Why?

    Sure, Why not?!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dewy, hands down. He's a great character. Dewy is one of those characters that you think about in real life situations. i.e "What would Dewy do?" The guy is so much fun to follow through the stories of deception, espionage, romance, terror, victory and sometimes his own brand of hard line justice.

    "You have got to read this series"

    I have read the first 3 Dewey Andreas sagas. They are great. Dewey has replaced Mitch Rapp as my favorite character ( Since there will be no more of Mitch due to Mr. Flynn's passing ) I enjoy Mr. Coes work as much as Clive Cussler, Patrick Robinson, Ted Bell, Srephen Coonts. Tom Clancy.and Brad Thor. These are all top notch writers. I am ready for Eye For An Eye.

    "Riveting"
    Where does The Last Refuge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It rates with my favorite Vince Flynn book with the Mitch Rap Series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The deep intrigue of what it taking place in our world today to the point where it could be a news headline.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Hermann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like his delivery until he starts speaking so low for effect that I have to rewind in order to understand what he is saying. Just a small glitch.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, that was the hard part because I could not donate all the time at once that was required.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope the rest of the series don't disappoint. I sincerely doubt it.

    "F You Tehran!"
    Where does The Last Refuge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up there, but ranking stuff becomes problematic.


    What other book might you compare The Last Refuge to and why?

    Ben Coes other Dewey Andreas novel's come to mind.


    What about Peter Hermann’s performance did you like?

    He is dead on with the right vocal cues and everything all the time. Probably the biggest thing is not just talent but he has a voice you can listen to. Not everyone has that quality and you really appreciate it when you hear a book who's narrator just grates on your nerves. Hermann is excellent though and I could listen to him for days on end.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would say there were a lot of times when I was disappointed that my drive wasn't a little bit longer.


    Any additional comments?

    The nuclear bomb thing is getting a little tired and old as far as books and movies go. Ironically it is probably becoming a bigger threat in real life, but I'll try to stick to reviewing the book.

    A lot of the book has a gritty real feeling that makes you appreciate not living in a country like Iran. The bad guys this time are Iranians who want to nuke Israel and nearly accomplish it. Everything comes together fairly well and it works, although the cumulative effect of thinking about a guy being held in Iran and tortured wears on me. I don't want to give anything away, but someone Dewey knows is kidnapped and held for most of the book. I want him to escape or something sooner than later. I think it's a structural flaw that you either like or don't.

    Despite all that, and I'm trying hard to come up with flaws, the book is a masterpiece.

    "Dewey Andreas rocks"

    1. Ben Coes, he is a good writer of the caliber of Vince Flynn and Michael Connelly, I have enjoyed his characters and the twist the plot took.

    2. This book is a must read for anyone who enjoys Mystery/thriller. It is well written and as far as I am concerned it deserves a space on my bookcase. The book is solid, there is nothing trite about it, which I will not read. Dewey is a good character and while he isn't a womanizing man his character is very manly.
    3. The narrator does a good job with the character reenactment and he has a strong voice which brings Dewey and the others alive.

    I really liked reading this book.
