Last Refuge

last refuge 2Dewey Andreas is back in this latest in the series by Ben Coes featuring the exploits of the X-Delta member.  As often is the case in this genre things go really bad then they get worse and things look dire and the hero, in this case Dewey, sweeps in and all is better.  I don’t mean that to be flip as I found this to be an enjoyable novel, but that is the general formula for these novels.  The devil or in this case the quality is in the details.

Coup D’Etat

I may have a new super hero to enjoy reading about.  Although he is fictional author Ben Coes makes a good case to put him close to the company of Gabriele Allon, Alex Hawke, Scot Harvath, and Mitch Rapp.  In Coup d’Etat evil again rears its ugly head in the Middle East as tensions broil between India and Pakistan.  Mix in two countries that don’t like each other, historic tensions, nuclear weapons, terrorists, jihadists, and loads of money and you just might get a coup.  Coes’ hero is ex-black ops guy who really wants to be off the grid.  Dewey Andreas gets pulled back in to take on a near-suicidal mission.
