Coup d'Etat

Book 2, A Dewey Andreas Novel - A Dewey Andreas Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The wait is over—Ben Coes, whose debut Power Down was called “the must read thriller of the year” (Vince Flynn) is back and at the top of his game with a mesmerizing new novel

Wanting only a peaceful, obscure life, Dewey Andreas has gone to rural Australia, far from turbulent forces that he once fought against. But powerful men, seeking revenge, have been scouring the earth looking for Dewey. And now, they've finally found him - forcing Dewey to abandon his home and to fight for his life against a very well armed, well trained group of assassins.

Meanwhile, a radical cleric has been elected president of Pakistan and, upon taking power, sets off a rapidly escalating conflict with India.  As the situation spins quickly out of control, it becomes clear that India is only days from resorting to a nuclear response, one that will have unimaginably disasterous results for the world at large.  With only days to head this off, the President sends in his best people, including Jessica Tanzer, to do whatever it takes to restore the fragile peace to the region.  Tanzer has only one viable option - to set up and execute a coup d'etat in Pakistan - and only one man in mind to lead the team that will try to pull off this almost unimaginable task in the nerve-wrackingly short time frame, Dewey Andreas. If, that is, Jessica can even get to Dewey and if Dewey can get out of Australia alive...

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 01, 2011 – Coes's exciting sequel to Power Down explores an all-too-plausible conflict in Asia. A radical cleric, in one of his first actions as Pakistan's new president, drops a nuclear bomb on India, its giant neighbor and rival. American leaders fear a domino scenario that could pit the U.S. against China militarily. Series hero Dewey Andreas, a former Delta Force officer who's been lying low in Australia, receives the call to assemble a small team of specialists and use whatever means necessary to get rid of the Pakistani president and install the U.S.'s handpicked successor all within 48 hours. As India itches to retaliate with its own nukes, Andreas must find a way to worm his way into the halls of Pakistani power while also warding off a well-funded terrorist group run by a Syrian financier devoted to violent Islamic revolt. Though too predictable at points, the plot sizzles with action, and the details have an authentic ring that put this thriller a cut above the pack.

Customer Reviews

Excellent and exciting book!

I read it in the shortest time ever! Couldn't stop reading.

If you are a fan of Vince Flynn, Nelson de Mille, Tom Clancy, Brad Thor or David Baldacci, then add Ben Coes to your reading list.

This should become a movie...soon

Excellent book. Even better than Power Down, and I really liked that one. It was very hard to put this book down. Coes is as good as Vince Flynn.

Coup dEtat

Dewey does it again....what a terrific character in a time when America need a hero. The story lin was good and the characters well developed. The one draw back is how one ,an can ge through such dangerous situations and cause such carnage to the bad guys. But that is the allure of the character. The background was dead on the current possihilities when 3rd world countries have nukes.
This book is a great read and awesome way to escape the hum drums of our daily life. Dewey needs to be in a movie and please don't tell me that Tom Cruise would be picked to p,ay his character.
