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.

    "Last Refuge but hopefully not the last of Dewey!"

    Wow! These Dewey Andreas adventures just keep getting better and better. Narration was great, plot was awesome and the pace of action was perfect. I know there's not a real person named Dewey Andreas but this book seems so REAL! Love the way the author structures his plots and brings all the thread in the book to neat and satisfying conclusions. Highly recommend this listen to anyone who enjoys thrillers. Great listen! Solid 5 ***** stars all the way.

    "Excellent Listen"
    What about Peter Hermann’s performance did you like?

    Glad they returned to the original narrator from the first book. He captures the inner voice and nuances of Andreas, Jessica and Calabreze well.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this series after listening to Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series and Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series. I like to find an author who can develop characters and then take them through various plots. In addition to the previous mentioned two, DeMille's John Corey and John Sanford's Virgil Flowers and Lucas Davenport come to mind.

    When an author can create such a realistic character...well the reading/listening audience is in his palm so to say. Excellent and relevant plot lines by Coes...I hope he keeps Andreas going for some time to come.

    "Wow! What an ending to a fantastic series-"

    Make sure you read all three books in order- War against terrorism seems to be the plot of the day for authors these days but this one goes outside the box with realism and very believable attacks. I can only hope we have a lot of Dewey's out there to watch our backs!

    Story
    "The Best of Ben Coes so far"
    If you could sum up The Last Refuge in three words, what would they be?

    I have listened to all 3 of his books and this is the best by far. What I found in the first was the entire story was marginal at best. The second book was a good story but for some reason he introduced a 36 hour time line to get from Australia to Pakistan and then overthrow the President of Pakistan. Not very realistic. This book was again a good story but again strayed into the unrealistic catagory. I won't give the story away but I think you will see my point when Dewey finally accomplishes his mission. I like Coes and think there is some good reading potential here but he needs to work on his realism a bit more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator was excellent. His ability to change tones in his voice was very enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Cole in the Iranian prison.


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

    Unrealistic conclusion.

    but still well worth the credit. Moves at a fast pace from the beginning.

    Story
    "Don't know why I waited so long"
    Would you listen to The Last Refuge again? Why?

    Yes. I will probably listen to the whole series again. This is so well written with a very well developed plot including many fine details that I'm sure a second time around wouldn't be boring.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's obviously Dewey Andreas.


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

    I listened to this in two days.


    Any additional comments?

    It took me months to decide to try this series. I finally took a chance and am now on the third in a row. My next purchase will be the forth in the series and I'm looking forward to the next one to be written.

    "Another good one from Ben Coes"

    I listen to audible in bed at night, and this kept me awake listening. Some titles and readers put me to sleep, which isn't too bad either, but I do like a good exciting book.

    Story
    "Not as fast paced as the last, but a solid gallop"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Refuge the most enjoyable?

    The premise of a Dewey being around to make the difference makes for a fun read.


    What about Peter Hermann’s performance did you like?

    Peter expressed emotion (especially anger) with more force than the usual readers

    "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.
