Publisher's Summary

A new short story by New York Times best-selling thriller writer Ben Coes — with time running out, Dewey Andreas is the last hope for a prominent kidnapping victim. 

The newly sworn in vice president of the United States has a problem. Her son, off in college, doesn't care for his security detail. So when spring break comes around, he slips away from his bodyguard, picks up his best friend, and heads to Mexico for an intended week of sun, sand, women, and hoped-for debauchery. But when he arrives at the airport, a team of well-armed kidnappers grab both him and his friend and escape. Now they're demanding that an exorbitant ransom be paid in only a few hours - and if it's not, both boys will be killed. 

Dewey Andreas, CIA operative and former Delta, happens to be in Mexico, taking some time away and helping friends Katie Fox and Rob Tacoma with a private job. Hoping to relax, Andreas is now the only hope these two young men have of surviving their misadventure. But Mexico is a big country and, before anything else, Dewey has to find the missing boys. Even then, it's a race against the clock, with a highly trained group of vicious men waiting at the other end. 

An original Dewey Andreas short story by best seller Ben Coes.

Over too soon!!! Leaves you wanting more!

This is a very good very short story that makes me want more.
The new Vice President's son slips away from his protection with his friend. They head off to Mexico and are kidnapped very shortly after. Just so happens that Dewey is in Mexico. Kind of makes you feel sorry for the kidnappers!
Fast paced, felt like I started the story and it was over. Can't wait for Bloody Sunday, Coes next book due out July 31!
Ari Fliakos does a great job narrating.
RECOMMENDED.

Good very short story!

SHOOTING GALLERY packs a lot of action into 75 minutes. I suspect the story is intended to introduce the new US VP for Coes' Bloody Sunday which will be released the last day of July.

...would have been a great full novel!

This was definitely one of the best short stories I’ve listened to. Love Ari Fliakis as the narrator and hats off to Ben Coes for a very entertaining short story. It definitely left me wanting more!

ANOTHER ACTION PACKED WINNER!

Dewey kicking the bad guys asses again. He’s here, he’ there, and this time he is winning the respect of a new madam Vice President. Loyal as always to the country he loves, and is willing to fight and if necessary die for.
If you like Dewey in the novels, you will love him in this short story, and say give me more.
Keep them coming Mr. Coes.

Short, but packed

Hard to stuff a lot in such a short time, but they sure did try.
Of course don't expect a complicated story, but still fun to listen to.

Misnumbered

I really liked this short story but it should be book 8.5 since the events in the book take place after book 8.

Win with Ari

I was concerned with the change in Narrator but Ari did a great job with picking up the hard edge of Dewey that we expect, great short story that allowed me to get use to the change.

Ari an excellent replacement

Loved the old narrator but the voice of now finished Colt Racer Raynor of deceased author Dalton Fury series is a great choice! Great novella can’t wait for Bloody Sunday Coes is Top 2-3 in the thriller genre lots of action, along with Greaney and Kirsanow (latter is new look him up)!
