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.

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.
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".
All, Each charaters have their uniqueness and Peter does a great job with each one.
Good story however it would be nice to see Andreas miss a shot and not Center punch every terrorist dead center in the four head or directly in the heart
Great narrator and his ability to use various excellence to help you stay engaged in the story
Exciting plot but the characters are cartoonish, particularly the evil ones, and the plot is based on absurd assumptions as to the characters' motivations, thoughts and actions.
The series gets better and better. The first book was good, but I still had my doubts. The 2nd and this book hooked me.
Exciting, exciting, exciting
Absolutely. In his distinctive, subdued style, Dewey is pure energy ready to strike.
Peter is back, and he is perfect for this series. Check out Private if you like Peter.
Hold on for the ride!
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.
Sure, Why not?!
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.
