Publisher's Summary

When a fragile peace breaks down and promptly devolves into a rapidly escalating shooting war between Pakistan and India, the United States is forced to intervene. With only hours remaining before the conflict reaches a deadly point of no return, the White House must find a way to shut it down immediately - or risk the likelihood of a new global war.

A radical cleric has become the democratically elected president of Pakistan and uses a brutal incident in the Kashmir region as an opportunity to ignite war with India. The highly lethal conventional war spins out of control when Pakistan initiates a nuclear attack. India is on the verge of launching their own nuclear response, one that will have unimaginably disastrous results for both the United States and the world at large.

With only one chance to head this off, the president of the United States sends in his best people to do whatever it takes to restore the fragile peace to the region. With the clock ticking and Pakistan in the hands of a religious radical willing to do anything to destroy India, there remains only one viable option: to execute a coup d’état in Pakistan.

There is only one man with the skills and experience to infiltrate the live war theater and remove the Pakistani president from power. Only one man the White House can trust. His name: Dewey Andreas. Now they have to find him before time runs out.

From the author of the critically acclaimed thriller Power Down comes the latest ripped-from-the-headlines novel featuring his indelible and indomitable protagonist, the unforgettable Dewey Andreas.

Also listen to Power Down.

    Story
    "Not for me.. Power Down was great, this one ???"
    Would you try another book from Ben Coes and/or David de Vries?

    Possibly.


    What was most disappointing about Ben Coes’s story?

    Too quickly into action without "taking a breath" -


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Coup d'Etat?

    Didn't get that far. The book was too "rushed" - There was too much information for me to enjoy and analyze.


    Any additional comments?

    Power Down was a good book, believable and disturbing. Coup D'Etat not so. Too quickly into action without "taking a breath" - Stopped after chapter 11 and returning book.

    Story
    "Ben Coes Pens a Real Thriller"

    Novel #2 in the Dewey Andreas series was an ok follow up to the great beginning book. This is a series that should be read in order as they do build upon each other.

    Again, Andreas fights thru a plethora of bad and evil to come out the winner in this pro-American, "We're the Best", You all suck philosophy that rule the terrorist and thriller genre.

    The new narrator was as successful in detailing Andreas and the rest of the characters in this book as Peter Hermann, the narrator for book #1.

    An excellent follow up..not quite as dramatic but well worth your credit. I'm just going to go ahead and purchase the following 3 books..you might say I'm hooked on Dewey Andreas.

    Story
    "A few problems with writing"

    This story is a good one and I like the premise of a war between Pakistan and India (an all too real possibility in today's political climate). However, some piggy the characterizations gave me pause. I has a hard time accepting that an Islamic terrorist would cuss like an octogenarian retired Merchant Marine, much less tell his contrary to "Shut his piehole." This suspended my believability of the character and almost turned it into a comedy to me. It seemed totally out of place. But other than that, a pretty well told story.

    "Excellent listen!!!"

    Captivating plot, very good character development, and twist after twist with barely a moment to relax, all tied up by a most satisfying denouement. Thanks to both the author and the narrator!!

    "On to book three"

    This was a great fast paced story. I'm looking forward to book three. It held my interest and I do not usually enjoy this genre of book. Book one was good, but this one was better.

    "Brilliant"

    Very Intelligent plot. Excellent narration with accents. Strange use of names though for Pakistanis officials.

    "Great story!"

    my only complaint, and this may be petty, is that I became distracted by the performer's sucking in breaths that was quite loud. I wonder if I just hadn't noticed it the 200 audible books before, but the next book's author hasn't done that.
