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.

in the top 3, only Vince Flynn and Brad Thor rival his Books
all of Vince Flynn's, because they keep you on the edge of your seat and do so from the beginning, no 10 chapter boring intro
the end scene when the Hostage is saved and the Iranians have the fake Bomb
Entrepreneur + Avid Reader + Concerned Political Skeptic
I would consider another book from this author. His basic cast of characters are really good though I hated to see the demise of President Rob Alears (Sp?) I thought the narrator did an excellent job with voices and story intent.
Recognizing the author's background, I understand his politics but, for me, the Mitt Romney piece at the end was unnecessary and a bit of a turn-off. I liked the Isreali, Cole Meir but I thought his "final solution" was a little over the top. Coes' few Dewey Andreas sex scenes and occasional physical descriptions could have also been better ... not necessarily toned down ... just a little more refined.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
This is book 3 of the season. ..no regrets. OK story and plot, I like the history(Mideast struggle with other countries).
I recommend this listen for the history even the the plot could have been much better. I just finished Book 4 which was so much richer in story, history, and great action.
So the first two books Dewey kicks ass, now he just runs around and gets in a short gun fight. Not what I expected.
Ben Coes, leave your politics at the door and 'pretend' to be a better writer.
I am quite sure I heard some "Colonel Klink" pop up as the narrator was portraying one of the Iranian Generals.
The sad part is: really predictable, plot was virtually transparent.
Why would you bring in knucklehead Romney? Is this to boost sales? ICK!
