Synopsis

In Ben Coes' latest, Eye for an Eye, Dewey Andreas faces the toughest odds of his life as one of China's most powerful men has decided to do whatever he must to take down Dewey—and inflicts a horrifying loss.

When Dewey Andreas uncovers the identity of a mole embedded at a high level in Israel's Mossad, it triggers a larger, more dangerous plot. The mole was the most important asset of Chinese Intelligence, and Fao Bhang, head of China's Ministry of State Security (MSS), responds to the discovery and brutal elimination of the mole, by immediately placing a kill order on the man responsible—Dewey Andreas.

Dewey is tracked to Argentina, where he is on vacation with his fiancée, Jessica Tanzer, a U.S. National Security Advisor. A top-level kill team is sent in quickly and quietly, but their attack fails to take out Dewey. The collateral damage, however, is both horrifying and deeply personal. With nothing left to lose, Andreas is determined to have his revenge. Once he learns who is probably behind the attack—and why they are after him—Dewey goes rogue, using all of his assets and skills to launch a counterattack. Andreas must now face the full weight and might of the MSS, Chinese Intelligence, and the formidable Fao Bhang, if he's to achieve his one last goal: revenge on a biblical scale, no matter the odds or the armies that he will have to fight his way through. Andreas—former Army Ranger and Delta—is a man of great skills and cunning. His opponent, Fao Bhang, is ruthless, determined, and with no limit to the assets at his disposal.

In this conflict, there are only two possible outcomes. And only one Dewey Andreas.

Praise for COUP D'ÉTAT "High concept meets high octane in this brilliantly executed thriller. Envision Clancy, Forsyth, and le Carré all writing in their prime…then kick in the boosters. Coup d'État is fantastic and Ben Coes blows the competition away!"-#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor "This exciting sequel to Power Down explores an all-too-plausible conflict…the plot sizzles with action, and the details have an authentic ring that put this thriller a cut above the pack." -Publishers Weekly "Will keep you up at night-first with the titillation of a great read, then with dread that Ben's plot might not be all that imaginary. A sumptuous dessert for a thriller reader."-Brian Haig, author of The Capitol Game Power Down "Power Down is terrific! With a gripping story, compelling characters, a relentless pace, and nerve-wracking suspense, Power Down is one of the must-read thrillers of the year. Don't miss this debut of novelist Ben Coes and the introduction of Dewey Andreas-you'll devour this one and wait anxiously for their return."-Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Pursuit of Honor "Coes pumps new heat, blood, and flat-out action into a well-worn premise-terrorists are out to break America by attacking its energy resources-in his frighteningly plausible thriller debut." -Publishers Weekly "I loved Power Down! It's a fresh, exciting thriller and the action scenes are big, vivid and authentic, at times even breathtaking. An impressive debut for Ben Coes. I was blown away." -David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Creepers and creator of Rambo "A ripping thriller from an exciting new novelist. Power Down kept me glued, turning the pages. Lots of action, a terrific hero, and a slimy villain-thrillers don't get any better."-Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Disciple "Power Down marks the emergence of a major new talent in the political thriller genre-no small feat in a field already packed with big names like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and David Baldacci. In terms of sheer entertainment value, author Ben Coes and his hero, the unusually but memorably named Dewey Andreas, are easily and immediately competitive with the very best the thriller field has to offer."-Fiction Addict "One of those rare, glue-in-your-seat books. Sit down, pick it up, and start reading. You aren't going anywhere for anything until you finish it."-Bookreporter.com
